Podcast: Equities throwing down the gauntlet, how will Fed respond?
Saxo Market Call
Summary: Today we note that there doesn’t seem to be any obstacle to the market advancing higher at the moment, as US longer yields remain tame and financial conditions continue to ease on hopes that we are set for a soft landing. But the Fed is likely not happy with conditions easing so aggressively and will have its work cut out for it to push back against the market's advance if treasury yields won't do the work for them. We also preview this week's earnings and macro calendar, talk energy, agriculturals and a zany cotton market, the USD turning back higher in places and more. Today's pod features Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
