TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell said: “This week got off to a better start, thanks to one Jerome Powell. When asked if the Federal Reserve has done all it can do in an interview for 60 Minutes, Powell stated that ‘there’s a lot more we can do…we’re not out of ammunition by a long shot. No, there’s really no limit to what we can do with these lending programs that we have’. This went some way to reversing the losses Powell provoked last week, when the Fed chair appeared to take negative interest rates off the table.
