Upcoming (potential) market risk event:
Jackson Hole and the US Fed Chairman’s upcoming speech
- Tomorrow August 25 2:05 PM UTC - Jerome Powell to deliver keynote speech at the Jackson Hole 2023 economic symposium.
- Hopefully, Powell will not say anything that diverts away from his current stance on meeting-by-meeting data dependence for further interest rate decisions.
Sticking with the main headline themes:
- Inflation is volatile, so financial markets are exposed which is generally what financial traders prefer keeping in mind that without volatility how can traders expect to generate a profit?
- The general public expects governments to solve all their problems.
Bottom line: watch the data, trade on the data, read between the lines when central bank officials speak, and most importantly, don’t believe the hype!
