Central Banker Chatter

Good morning!

Options AI mobile is now available in the Apple app store! Go find it here.

As market participants await words from Jay Powell, stock futures have slipped slightly into the red with tech pulling back from its recent rally. Chip stocks like Nvidia are leading the way lower following a report in the WSJ that the U.S. is considering restricting AI-focused chips from being exported to China. Powell’s remarks will be interesting considering the economic data of late like consumer confidence and housing starts showing the economy still plugging away. He is speaking at an ECB / Central banker gathering with Christine Lagarde also appearing. The 1-year treasury is around 5.30, higher than before the SVB mess, and the 2-year yield is 4.74, still below its pre-SVB peak but has been moving towards those levels.

The VIX remains below 14 with SPY at the money vol about 11.

On the earnings front Micron (MU) is set to update with Nike reporting tomorrow.
