    The Fed's senior leadership - Yellen, Fischer and Dudley - seem to co-ordinating warnings that the stock market is too high...

    That's right Patto. The Fed is taking away the punchbowl but no one wants to leave the party. I hope they don't all decide to do so...

    Morning Markets: Oil finding its footing?
    There was a temporary respite from the ongoing slide in crude prices during Asian trading today, with WTI and Brent crude prices firming slightly. Equities made gains across the region. Meanwhile bargain hunters flocked to equities in Australia, driving a rebound in the S&P/ASX200 following Wednesday's plunge.

    US markets closed quietly on Friday in a week where we saw dissention in the ranks on monetary policy committees.

    The FOMC voted 8-1 to raise rates; the Bank of England (5-3) and Bank of Japan (7-2) voted to hold steady.

    As has been the case for the last year, money market pricing is well under the FOMC’s new “dot plot” for the fed funds rate (see chart)

    We also see the effect in USD positioning where net longs against the G10 continue to decline (see chart)

    The problem is that the Philip’s curve - which measure the historical trade off between unemployment and wage growth- is not working (see chart)

    All the major central banks agree that wages growth is the key to achieving 2% inflation targets.

    More important has been the central bank response to wage growth and unemployment divergence: easy money and a booming stock market

    Very interesting and incomprehensible indeed. Seems a reactive response from the central banks side. But 1986 to 2008 seems a better scenario? What were we doing economic...
