- *CME GLOBEX RESUMES FUTURES TRADING AFTER TECHNICAL ISSUE
Looks like the machines want to run post-Yellen stops... to new record highs...
Perhaps someone needs to tell Treasury Futures it's time to sell off and keep the dream alive...
- CME GLOBEX MARKETS TO OPEN 9 P.M. IN CHICAGO
- CME GLOBEX TO PRE-OPEN 8:30 PM CT, OPEN AT 9 PM CT: CME GROUP
- CME: ALL DAY, SESSION ORDERS WITH AUG. 24 TRADE DATE CANCELLED
It appears - judging from FX markets this evening - that consensus on Jackson Hole is Yellen was more hawkish and Draghi & Kuroda more dovish than expected. The USD index is pushing on towards one-year highs as EUR is down 50 pips (not helped by a dovish FT article on deflation fears) to 11-month lows, and USDJPY broke to as high as 104.45 (weakest JPY in 7 months). In addition to this action, the CME confirms all Futures products will have a delayed opening due to technical issues with NO estimated opening time.

Phone call to Chris Grams, press officer at CME, was not immediately returned
USDJPY at 7-month highs
EUR tumbling to 11-month lows...
Of course, there is no need for futures trading anymore since The Fed will merely extend its "communications" policy to announce the end of day print for the S&P 500 each morning going forward...
But for those wondering, EURJPY implies an S&P open around 7 points down... though we suspect USDJPY will be in charge and stocks are lifted.
