Today the last best chance to avoid the summer doldrums?
Today's slide deck: https://bit.ly/3yepvlJ -
Today we look at the huge quarter-end effect visible in the Fed's reverse repo facility, which plunged some $250 billion yesterday, though with no real treasury volatility during yesterday's session. On that note, we wonder if today's US jobs report is the last best chance to avoid the summer doldrums across markets, depending on whether we see a major surprise in the data. We also discuss the OPEC+ meeting developments and the remaining uncertainties for oil traders after confusing developments, wrap the commodities performance for the week and wonder where the USD will find resistance, as well as previewing the economic calendar for the week ahead. On today's pod are Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
