Today's Economic Data Docket - Even More Fed Speeches

Tyler Durden's picture


At this point it is certain: the Fed is determined to baffle them with bullshit.

9:05: Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart on the US economic outlook. Q&A scheduled. Mr. Lockhart is not currently a voting member of the FOMC.
9:30: Chicago Fed President Charles Evans on “The Role of Government in Financial Literacy
”. No discussion of current economic conditions or policy, and no Q&A. Mr. Evans will also appear on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” at 15:15 today, where he will discuss the economy and monetary policy. Mr. Evans is a voting member of the FOMC this year.

11:00: After a rare one day hiatus, POMO is back, as Fed monetizes $6.5-8.5 billion in 10/31/2016 – 03/31/2018

19:15: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on “Clearinghouses and Financial Stability”. Q&A scheduled. Given the topic of his speech, Chairman Bernanke may not comment directly on the economic outlook or policy issues.

Never a truer word spoken in jest,the Bernank will be carrying on the tradition from the great Alan Greenspan:

"Since becoming a central banker, I have learnt to mumble with great incoherence. If I seem unduly clear to you, you must have misunderstood what I said."

POMO is the biggest joke around...the Fed is so full of shit it's not even funny, all they want to see is a mindless public naively thinking everything is okay.  most people I know don't even know the details of the shutdown or what it would have entailed.  most didn't even know it was about to happen. what a shame...
