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.

Budget 2021: Market reaction muted, BoE mandate raises eyebrows

“That which we are, we are”. Rishi Sunak channelled Tennyson and the wanderer Ulysses in one fell swoop to sum up his Budget. I’m none the wiser.

Stocks shrug as Brexit, US stimulus deals remain elusive

The two big pre-Christmas deals remain elusive. Brexit talks have hit a roadblock with only a handful of days until the deadline. The European Parliament set a Sunday deadline to see the text in order to ratify it in time. Meanwhile, Congressional leaders say they will work into the weekend to hammer out a Covid relief deal for the US.

Risk on, dollar lower

Solid start: market sentiment appears buoyed by hopes US lawmakers can strike a stimulus deal and Brexit talks are close to a breakthrough, albeit they are still hanging by a thread and the deadline is only two weeks away.

Brexit talks go to extra-time, AstraZeneca drops on takeover

Brexit talks are going into extra-time; neither side want it to go to penalties. Both the UK and EU say they will continue talking and want to go the ‘extra mile’. The market read this as progress towards a deal, although the two sides remain far apart on the last big issues.

IPO frenzy stateside, no-deal Brexit preparations ramp

Shares in Airbnb surged on debut, closing above $144 on their first day of trading after listing at $68. The more-than-doubling in the share price reflects huge investor interest, particularly in the retail space, as well as significant excess liquidity that is finding a home wherever it can.

No Brexit breakthrough, Ocado raises guidance, ECB set to ease again
