Welcome to Macro Insights #9. Over the past week, US markets reacted to Fed Chairman Jerome Powell re-appoint for a second term with the S&P 500 dropping before rising slightly towards the end of the week, the dollar rose as expectations of rate hike taking place by June 2022 became more entrenched based on initial jobless claims falling to a 52 year low.

Welcome to Macro Insights #8. Over the past week we’ve seen US stock market indices fall as the reality that inflation may hit the economic recovery harder than expected and that the Fed may need to take more action sooner than expected is sinking in.
