Show me the money!

Monday Money Mate — 25 Jan 2021

US President Joe Biden’s big stimulus plans, Bitcoin’s price, UK jobs and Australia’s inflation are all in the spotlight this week.

The Aussie sharemarket will be watching Wall Street closely for its reaction to how the Senate treats Biden’s US$1.9 trillion stimulus package, with Republicans already pushing back.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s fall from its record high has been swift. After dipping below US$30,000 last week, prompting calls it’s now in a bear market, the cryptocurrency will be one to watch.

On Tuesday we’ll get a snapshot of how months of lockdowns have affected the UK’s unemployment rate — currently sitting at 4.9% — and later in the week US GDP data will reveal how the world’s biggest economy is faring.

Australia’s quarterly inflation figures will be released on Wednesday, spotlighting the change in the price of goods and services across the country.

The CPI headline figure was 1.6% in the third quarter on the back of higher childcare fees.

The NAB and CBA are forecasting a more modest 0.6% and 0.9%, respectively, in the December quarter.
