Today's Economic Data Docket - Nothing: A Few Speeches, One POMO And BOJ Begins Two-Day Deliberations

European holiday, blank US economic data docket and just two speeches from a few Fed officials today:

  • 9:30: Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker on “Manufacturing in the New Southern Economy”. Event will include media Q&A.
  • 11:00: POMO buying $4 - $5 billion in bonds due 08/15/2018 - 05/15/2021; $55 billion left in remaining 13 POMOs.
  • 19:00: Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher on “Federal Reserve Functions and Economic Update”. Mr. Fisher is a voting member of the FOMC this year.
  • The Bank of Japan Policy Board began a two-day meeting last night. The Bank will maintain its bias towards easing, but further measures to provide liquidity -- if any -- will probably be confined to the areas that directly felt the impacts of the earthquake and tsunami.
