Italian election outcome unclear and upsetting markets. Bernanke testifies Today and Wednesday
|Italian election outcome unclear and upsetting markets. Bernanke testifies Today and Wednesday |

CALENDAR- North America: Case-Shiller, Richmond Fed, New Homes Sales, CB Consumer Confidence, 5-yr
- HIGH IMPACT ITEMS: US- Case-Shiller, New Homes Sales, CB Consumer Confidence
- Italian national elections have ended with the worst possible outcome, which is no clear result. Investors had hoped that difficult financial reforms would continue, but that is in doubt if a weak coalition government can be formed. If a government cannot be formed then there will have to be another round of elections and a caretaker government installed.
- Worries about the possible impact of Italian political uncertainty on the Euro experiment has weighed on equity markets around the globe and given bond prices in major countries a lift on flight to safety demand.
- Today and Wednesday will see key Congressional testimony by Fed Chairman Bernanke. Markets have been looking for a clarifications of the latest Fed Minutes. Recall that Bernanke is in the "dove" camp at the Fed. Markets will be looking for any reassuring comments he might have about the Italian crisis.
- In Japan a key item is who will be appointed the next BOJ Governor. There were rumors over the weekend that former FinMin Kuroda who favors PM Abe's aggressive stimulus will be getting the job. We don't think the JPY devaluation efforts have ended in Japan, although they might have paused for a short while.
