Markets don't care much about anything until after they hear from Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi in Jackson Hole, writes Bob Savage, CEO of Track Research in his Wednesday commentary from London. Analysts foresee no major policy changes but a surprise announcement can not be ruled out. The general consensus is for Draghi to maintain his existing forward guidance and we think he will probably be reluctant to hint that a tapering in the quantitative easing programme is on the horizon at this juncture. He has said he likes her cautious approach to raising interest rates, but her decision to make clear that she is not in favour of rolling back the banking rules could put a wide chasm between her and the White House. U.S. President Donald Trump will start publically campaigning for long-waited tax reform next week, according to his chief economic advisor Gary Cohn. The latest remarks by the president came as concern is growing whether the government can push through pro-business policies.
