As global bond yields fall and investors worry about a recession, all eyes will be on the central banker meeting this week in Jackson Hole. Whilst it’s rare for major policy announcements to emerge from the symposium, markets will be fixated on any signals from the Fed and others about the path of interest rates.
Minutes from the Fed’s last meeting will be parsed for clues about future rate cuts. With markets pricing in more cuts this year, these minutes will help show exactly where members stand on the issue.
A few earnings to watch for – Anglo-Australian miner BHP Billiton and some US retail sector stocks including GAP and Target bring up the rear as US second quarter earnings season winds down.
There are still a lot of earnings releases in the current week, including big name brands Target, Salesforce and Gap.
