- Financial markets were shocked by the Fed policy decision not to start to reduce its asset purchases ($85 bln) at what seemed to be an ideal opportunity for such a move. The decision raises questions about the confidence of the Fed in the economy. USD tumbles, stocks soar and bond yields fall.
- There is a press report indicating a top administration official said that Janet Yellen is now the top candidate for Bernanke's job and could get the nomination as early as next week barring an unexpected development. We think she would be a safe appointment, but we will see.
- Bank of England policy board minutes from two weeks ago saw unanimous votes to keep interest rates steady and the size of asset purchases unchanged. Comments about the economy leaned to the hawkish side. The GBP has gained on the statement. See the FOREX FORUM for latest key data and charts as they are released.
- U.S. Housing starts came in below expectations but are not falling out of bed, yet, The full impact of rising long term rates has yet to have been felt.
- Existing Home Sales will be released on Thursday. Thursday also features U.K. CPI data. On Friday Canadian CPI data are released. On Sunday Germany will hold what looks to be closely contested national elections.
