The Complete Jackson Hole Schedule

Tyler Durden's picture

Over the past several years, the two-day Jackson Hole symposium had garnered a particular prominence among economists and market watchers as this is where various key inflection points by the Fed were hinted, leaked or announced, including QE2, QE3 and the taper. This year, however, the gathering of central bankers in Teton County, will be less exciting due to the absense of the most important central banker in the world: Janet Yellen, which means the highlighter will be Vice-Chairman Stanley Fischer when he speaks tomorrow at 10:25pm  which will be a key event given the recent market turmoil.

Fischer must be on draft #3 of his speech, and surely less dovish than he might have been 36-48 hours ago as markets round the world have seen a remarkable recovery however the gyrations must be making the Fed very nervous about a move in just under 3 weeks. Most DM markets are back to where they were before the original sharp sell-off on Monday with the DAX pretty much recovering all its losses after dipping -7.8% for the week at one point. As DB accurately puts it, "a combination of the latest plate spinning from China and thin trading liquidity but heavy volumes have driven the sharp up move."

Bloomberg TV will have extensive one on ones with various central bankers as follows: be especially careful for the Bullard interview - last time he spoke during a market correction he sent stocks soaring to all time highs, although this year Dudley may have taken his role.

  • 7:30am: Fed’s Bullard on Bloomberg TV
  • 9:15am: Fed’s Kocherlakota, Mester on Bloomberg TV
  • 12:25pm: Swiss National Bank’s Jordan speaks in Jackson Hole
  • 2:15pm: Fed’s Lockhart on Bloomberg TV
  • 4:15pm: Reserve Bank of India’s Rajan on Bloomberg TV
  • 10:25pm: Bank of England’s Carney speaks in Jackson Hole

So for those who time their buying programs with the appearance of their central bankers,here is the full schedule starting with this morning's discussion of "Inflation dynamics through firms' pricing behavior" and concluding tomorrow with another discussion on "global inflation dynamics." So a lot of inflation discussion, yet shouldn't it be deflation?

Is that ALL you do here? Post nothing but useless one liners and then place below them a totally unrelated spam link?

Fuck you monetas. You and your porn avatar. What's your schtick? You just want to be everyone's friend? Then steer them in the zino-direction?

He didn't say Jews btw. So here's your question. Why? Why "lighten up" on the Protocols? Are you the Protocols Protection Team?

As long as they keep fucking us over, we'll keep lighting up the Joos.

Wow, all these economists have scheduled to talk about is inflation.   It's as if it's the only thing on their minds.

I don't see any public executions on the schedule.

When are the hangings to begin?

After WWII, we had the trials for "Crimes against Humanity".  I'd like to see all central bankers tried in the international courts for Their crimes against humanity.  You can start with Greenspan, Bernanke, Geitner, and Paulson.

Does anyone know how to get MSFT Edge to work cutting out all the crap on this website?

I have gone to to Windows 10 and microsoft has built in some bombs that appear to cause Google Chrome to not work.  Msft Edge (replacement for IE) does not appear to allow ADBlock.


madcows's picture

you should probably uninstall windows 10 and go back to Windows XP or MSDos.  Installing windows 10 is like purposely installing spyware on your machine.

RaceToTheBottom's picture

Yep, understand your thinking but my present job and revenue stream requires I be up on the latest spyware (software)

Go back to windows 7...

I think I saw CNBC plug a Fischer interview for 11:20, could this be correct?  Didn't think the top Fed person at this conference would go on TV before the big speech, but if so trading will be even more edgy.

Jackson Hole is actually a beautiful place.  However since Cheney and a large number of the sociopaths call it temporary home for a few short days, it should appropriately be renamed Jackson Asshole.

She's a chicken. I would not be in a location with that many financial perverts while so many nations and people of the world are pissed at them. Hell no. Nations have weapons in space now that we are in WWIII.
