  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment
  • Fed's Kashkari: - I am opposed to rate hikes at least through 2023 - The labor market is still in a deep hole; it will take some time to get people reattached to the work force
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The benefits of reducing MBS purchases first would be modest - It may take longer than September to judge progress on labor supply
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Fed funds rate should remain unchanged through 2023 - When it is time to taper, the best case scenario is to stick to the same plan as before
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Inflationary indicators have been higher than predicted, but this is expected to be temporary - Although the success against COVID is inspiring, it is still too early to declare victory

Talking Points

  • EURUSD slides to new lows on Dollar strength and on outperformance of U.S yields. Trigger behind the move is said to be hawkish comments by San Francisco Fed president Williams.
  • ECB’s Lautenschlager tries to talk down expectations of further ECB monetary easing, while ECB’s Liikanen says that the risk of deflation is still in place.
  • I also discuss levels for crude oil following comments from Saudi Arabia.

Overview

Over the last 24 hours the U.S. Dollar has seen gains across the G10 space as comments by San Francisco Fed president Williams boosted expectations of a December rate hike. Comments also triggered declines across the commodity complex.

With the EURUSD price momentum being strong, the markets are also ignoring economic data as this morning’s strong E.U. PMIs and soft U.S. PMs showed. With the ECB and Fed on autopilot until the December rate meetings, I don’t expect any major changes to the prevailing trends, be it the Dollar, commodities or equity indices.

In the video we cover setups across the major FX pairs, DAX 30, FTSE 100, and S&P 500. I also discuss levels for crude oil following comments that have emanated from Saudi Arabia alongside the positions of Countries such as Venezuela, Russia and Iran.
