Traders also have a cautious eye on the Russia humanitarian convoy that has begun moving from the Ukraine/Russian border to Lukansk without Ukraine approval. S&P 500 Futures remain bid as a recent melt-up in US markets threatens to push futures through the psychological 2,000 level.

- India govt said to have raised sugar import duty from 15% to 25%
- China Premier Li Keqiang reiterated that domestic economy faces challenges keeping growth

Currencies/Fixed Income:
- FX markets were on hold with USD just off its 2014 peak against a basket of major currencies ahead of the Fed's Jackson Hole conference. Markets are still weighing up the implications of the minutes of the last MPC and FOMC meetings. Position squaring seemed to be the main objective among traders who had long dollar positions into the Fed conference.
- The USD could slip if Yellen sounded dovish, but any fall was likely to be mild with ECB's Draghi situation

Political/In the Papers:
- (US) Fed's Williams (dove, FOMC non-voter): 1st rate hike in summer of 2015 is a reasonable guess, is a personal view but ultimately the 1st hike will be data dependent
- (US) Fed's Plosser (hawk, FOMC voter and recent dissenter): Main concern is that monetary policy is not reacting to changing data. longer we wait, the higher the risk of having to raise rates very quickly.
- (AR) Argentina bond case judge holds hearing, demands a settlement, calls Argentina's position "lawless"
