Powell Remains Hawkish, "Premature To Think About Pausing" | Weekly Round Up

This week, Mark & Mike discuss the Fed rate hike decision of 75bp. As markets interpreted the announcement as dovish and a catalyst for a small rally in risk assets, Powell's press conference walked back any dovish bias investors had. Powell made clear to markets, they had no intention of slowing down their tightening "until the job is done".

All eyes remain on the labor market as an indicator for when the Fed's tightening will begin to materialise. The unemployment data came out as this episode was recorded so Mike & Mark break it down in real time. But to hear that, you'll have to tune in!
