Seriously, today’s economic calendar is off the rails. There’s no human emotion or excitement in sight. You’ve got the Fed’s Barr mumbling about “Bank Supervision and Regulation” at 7:10, and Fed’s Mester droning on about “Financial Stability in Times of Macroeconomic Uncertainty” at 8:30. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, there’s this snooze-fest of Initial Jobless Claims and Import/Export Prices at, you guessed it, 8:30.
Then, hold onto your hats, because at 9:15, we’ve got Industrial Production – talk about a yawn! And it just keeps going with Fed’s Williams Speech at 9:25, Housing Market Index at 10:00, and let’s not forget the thrilling “Central Bank Digital Currency” discussion by Fed’s Waller at 10:30.
By this point, eyes are glazing over, and even the EIA Natural Gas Inventory release at 10:30 can’t save us. We’re trapped in the clutches of full-blown financial stability speeches and ghostly economic surveys, with no end in sight! Can someone please shake things up and bring some actual excitement to this economic desert?
