Now I know why the market is so calm

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, there is an event called “Jackson Hole Symposium” which main goal is for central bankers, finance ministers, market experts to gather and talk about the current market conditions, currencies, debt crisis, markets, etc. And guess who is going to be there:

Your friend Ben Bernanke, so please, tell him to rattle the market a little, but not too much!

We´ll have to wait until Monday though, because as most important events and non schedule announcements (are released during the weekend), his turn to talk is on Friday, when the market are closed.  So you know, traders, investors all over the world can digest the news with a few beers before taking any action on Monday.

Trade Safe!

Worried about Bernanke’s Testimony

Bernanke testifies before the senate, and I’m worried about the questions and answers sessions, you never know what they are going to ask him, if it’s something about the market, crisis, USD, etc the market will take some impact.

Now, there are times that no impact is seen during Bernanke’s testimonies, I hope this is one of those.

Better yet, If we see some impact, let it be on the direction of my trades :)

I’ll keep you posted.
