The Economic Data calendar for the week of the 8th of August through the 12th of August is full of critical releases and events. Here is a snapshot of some of the headline numbers that we will be focused on.
Our inimitable, in-house cartoonist Bob Rich is on a much-deserved summer vacation. While he kicks back and relaxes, we're going into the Hedgeye Vault and highlighting some of his best work. After Friday's Jobs Report "beat" analyst expectations, Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough wrote, "After going from hawkish to dovish to hawkish to dovish to hawkish, this Jobs print keeps Federal Reserve hawkish." Here's another audience favorite ... Blast off!
Takeaway: A closer look at global macro market developments.

"... Global demand and domestic output growth are down. And employment growth in excess of output growth – which remains the case currently- is paid for via lower corporate profitability.

Takeaway: BoE cut rates by to 0.25%, increased its QE target to £60 billion, which included £10 billion corporate bond purchases. ↓ GBP, ↓ 10yr Gilt
Carney did his best to devalue the purchasing power of The People yesterday (a little “market security” in exchange for what was a great driver for the UK consumer economy in 2015, #StrongPound). He got the GBP/USD down to $1.31 while blasting the 10yr Gilt Yield down to 0.63% where it’s holding this morning, down -14bps month-over-month.
