Today we look at a US equity market that posted a nervy session yesterday, with a surge after the close from less bad Meta news than feared. We still assess that the market is trading heavily, with additional danger from a surging US dollar as USDJPY surged to new 20-year highs on the Bank of Japan doubling down on its yield-curve-control policy and therefore deepening its loss of control over its balance sheet. We also look at more earnings ahead, including Apple and Amazon tonight, edible oil prices a concern for global food inflation, gold, FX themes and more. Today's pod features Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
