Summary:  Will markets move on Powell ?


Good Morning

Today is the long awaited day – the Jackson Hole conference will take place and markets are in absolute hibernation mode ahead of the event. Equities lost app 0.5% globally after two ISIS attacks in Afghanistan that killed 85 and slightly hawkish comments by Robert Kaplan and Bullard.

10 Year ratees trade at 1.3425, the USD Index at 92.98, EURUSD at 1.1760, gold 1802 and Silver 23.70. Bitcoin remains at 47k.

Key at the Jackson Hole Symposium will be the speech by Jerome Powell at 16:00 CET and any outlook he will provide on the Tapering timeline. Hawks are arguing that the economy is strong enough to withstand tapering, doves are citing the delta variant of corona as a basis to delay any taper.

The fact that corona related hospitalizations exceed 100k people as of yesterday and the fact that the meeting is not held in persona but remote can be taken as dovish.

Besides the Symposium we are expecting the US Consumption at 14:30 CET and the University of Michigan Consumer confidence at 16:00 CET but both would have to be a real surprise for having any impact.  On Monday the UK markets are closed, the Swiss KOF indicator will be releases and the German CPI.
