Macro Brief: All Quiet on the Western Front
Head of Macro Analysis
Summary: Financial markets have dropped in low gear as we approach Easter week. But do keep an eye out for a consumer sentiment update from the US and, of course, earnings releases from JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.
The Bank of England’s Mark Carney is also due to speak today at the IMF/World Bank Spring meetings.
Frankly speaking, the focus will be on the earning season as the US banking sector will release the first data.
