  • Fed's Powell: - No sense of panic in regard to inflation - I do not believe wage increases are causing price inflation
  • Fed's Powell: - High inflation prints not "what we were looking for" - Spike in inflation driven solely by supply side shock
  • Fed's Powell: - We expect RRP activity to remain elevated - Repo facilities performing as expected
  • Fed's Powell: - MBS and tapering were brought up by a number of FOMC participants - We will taper both (MBS & Treasuries) at the same time most likely
  • Fed's Powell: - Strong capital requirements are a "must" for banks, especially the largest banks - Capital requirements allow banks to continue to perform during severe downturns
  • The July FOMC press conference is hammering home this point: the labor market mandate is now on equal footing with the inflation mandate (which is atypical); and Powell is now making the case that the labor mandate is *more important* to normalization than the inflation side.
  • Fed's Powell: - Fed has not made a decision on when taper will commence - Variety of opinions with in the Committee on when tapering should begin
  • Fed's Powell: - Transitory means not impacting longer-run inflation patterns - We must be extremely careful when it comes to the inflation mandate

The March set of UK Inflation Data reported broadly in-line with expectations. The headline year-on-year CPI measure of price growth fell to the lowest level since October 2009, and the year-on-year measures of retail inflation fell to the weakest levels in nearly five years. The year-on-year ONS House Price index stands out the most as the print beat expectations and reached the highest level since August 2010. Currency Analyst Ilya Spivak cautions that weakening price pressures coupled with soft readings may push back against BOE policy normalization expectations.

The British Pound pared losses and returned to familiar overnight ranges after falling as much as 0.41% to 1.6660. The British Pound may push towards next resistance at 1.6783, according to Sr. Technical Strategist Jamie Saettele, CMT. Market Analyst David de Ferranti notes that GBPUSD may continue lower as candlestick analysis suggests bulls are losing conviction.
