The annual Jackson Hole Symposium takes place across Thursday to Saturday this week. The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Economic Symposium is a key event in the global economic calendar. The fact that Federal Chair Yellen (Friday 25th 5pm BST) and ECB President Draghi (Friday 25th 8pm BST) are both scheduled to speak shows it carries some clout.
With geopolitical turmoil in Asia and the US, traders will be hoping for signs of stability coming from the annual get-together. The ECB, Bank of England and Federal Bank in the US have all recently dropped hints about rolling back the fiscal stimulus that has powered the global economy in the last decade, so comments will be analysed with this in mind. As attendees come from across the world, press releases could affect every market so plan trades carefully and be ready for a rollercoaster.
