Jackson Hole came and went.
The anti-climax was palpable, although the prospect of QE remained with Bernanke continuing to promise an additional fix. The prospect was enough to break the weeks equity losses and sustain a rebound.
The European Bailout rumbled on with the Bond-Buying Bank Bailout set to be announced in the coming week. This will temporarily allow Spain and Italy to issue enough debt at a manageable rate with the ECB funding the issuance either directly or indirectly (allowing Banks to enrich themselves in the process!).
Funding further debt does not address the cause of the problem and that is the endless deficits! Draghi has promised to do 'whatever it takes' but this will not be enough. The EUR rebounded to 1.2580 with the prospect of more US Dollars in circulation.
The new week will be flooded with economic data in Europe and the US highlighted by crucial employment reports. Central bank decisions will also drive sentiment with the BofE, ECB, Bank of Canada, RBA all announcing. Expectations will be low, except for the ECB, but Draghi has built expectations in the Latin way.
KIWI broke back above 0.8000 and the AUD reached 1.0345.
