Stick or twist? Markets pin hopes on Fed chair Powell

Jay Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve, speaks today at the WSJ’s Jobs Summit. We know the Fed’s policy on jobs already; what the market cares about is the central bank’s response to volatility in the bond market. This will be the last time we hear from Powell before the blackout period for Fed speakers ahead of the March 16-17th meeting.

UK assets finding favour, Deliveroo IPO eyed, Bitcoin record again + yields steepen

Twenty-five-year-old security guard Salvador Vergara took out a $20,000 personal loan at 11% to buy GameStop shares at $234. He still owns the shares – now worth 52.40 - and the debt on the loan. It’s not a pretty story and underlines why it is so important not to get carried away by fads, social media and the madness of crowds.
