Looking towards the Fed Chairman's speech

Market News

8.30.12

Top Day Market News

Initial claims come in at 374K, a bit higher than expected while personal income came in as expected and spending was a bit soft. Again, everyone, especially in this world of light volume, is looking towards the Fed Chairman’s speech in Jackson Hole for direction. At the same time, given that this is happening on a Friday ahead of a holiday, the effect will be well digested and ultimately discounted by the time Tuesday rolls around.
