Speculation will be a daily source of what is happening in financial markets around the world. Observations will be given each day attempting to connect several different markets, including commodities, currencies, bonds, and equities. Some of the key themes to keep an eye on this year will be central bank divergence, volatility across various currency and commodity markets, Fed rate hikes, geopolitical conflict, and the potential for a Greek exit from the eurozone.
Economic data (both the estimated and actual results) that is released each day will be recorded and accessed through the menu on the right. In addition, special interest articles on M&A activity and the international political landscape as it relates to the macro economy will be given on a weekly or monthly basis.
