Global markets are waiting for “our” Fed to speak … tomorrow and Friday.
Investors are eyeing the Federal Reserve’s annual central banking event in Jackson Hole, Wyo. later this week, focused on whether or not central bankers will detail their plans for tapering monetary stimulus. The Fed has started discussions to pull back its $120 billion a month bond-buying program by the end of this year. <CNBC>
It is said that, “Markets have been boosted by signs that delta variant cases could be peaking I don’t see or hear it?
Taper talk is the worry, but if inflation continues to run hot and economic data continues to be mixed the timing of tapering could get pushed,” noted Lindsey Bell, chief investment strategist at Ally Invest. “It’s unlikely that the Fed will force a taper on an economy that isn’t ready, and the outlook is becoming less certain with the rise of the Delta variant.” <CNBC>
