Saxo Bank Podcast: Market Speculators And Hedgers Are Revving Up For Another Blast Of Volatility

Worrisome Growth Signals in Eurozone PMI: Recession Risks Loom Amid Persistent Inflation Pressures

Summary:  Today, we highlight the absurd levels of volatility around recent US CPI releases ahead of today's US November CPI data point, noting signs that market speculators and hedgers are revving up for another blast of volatility in the wake of today's release. At the same time, we suggest that the reaction function may be difficult as the FOMC meeting follows hot on the heels of this release the following day. Elsewhere, we look at precious metals and copper levels, whether regulators will (or should) approve mergers like the Novozymes-Christian Hansen attempt, earnings to watch for the rest of the week and more. Today's pod features Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities, with John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
