Good Morning Traders!
It is Monday 10th of July, here's what to look out for today.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wouldn't rule out the possibility of a US recession, saying that slowing growth is "appropriate and normal" and that inflation remains too high.
Former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers warned against any sense of accomplishment by policymakers in bringing inflation down significantly from its peak last year, and predicted another bond selloff as investors adjust to the need for additional monetary tightening.
The June CPI print on Wednesday will be the last major data release on which Federal Reserve officials can comment before the July 25-26 FOMC meeting: According to economists, attention should be focused on how the risk-balance is evolving and what this means for the Fed.
The full impact of the Federal Reserve's current quantitative tightening program is expected in the coming months: how it proceeds, and how the Fed handles the process, may shape the Fed's political latitude to continue using its balance sheet as a key tool in the future.
Yellen's two-day meeting with top Chinese officials provided a way for the US and China to limit the economic damage caused by the two countries' intensifying rivalry.
