US jobs and EU prices: signals expected by central banks are on the way.  There is an air of sales on the markets

MILANO – Markets are struggling to digest the hawkish words Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell uttered Friday in Jackson Hole. From the symposium of the central banks he made it clear that the fight against inflation is the priority for Washington, even if it involves “pain” for the economy. Because not putting out the price fire would lead to far worse ones in the future.

Morgane Delledonne, Head of Investments in Europe at Global X, commented that “the Fed’s priority is clear: to bring inflation back to 2% even at the cost of slowing the economy. This is a hawkish message. The Fed he sees most of the risks in halting tightening prematurely and is committed to keeping inflation in check “and for that” I expect increases of 75 basis points to continue until that happens. “

According to reports Bloomberg judging by the futures, the opening for the Asian markets is seen to be in sharp decline, with indications for Japan pointing to -2% after the -3.4% recorded by the S & P500 last Friday. The market week will be guided by macroeconomic data to be published, which will provide important indications to both the Fed and the ECB in view of the September meetings and the decisions on rates. Even on the European side, in fact, the continuation of the straits is expected: yesterday Francois Villeroy de Galhau, a French member of the ECB executive committee, said Eurotower’s commitment to take action on inflation is “unconditional”: another “significant” hike in interest rates is a necessary step in September. And the German colleague Isabel Schnabelfrom Jackson Hole, admitted that the risks of recession are
increased but the “central banks must act forcefully” against the price rush. “Even if we enter a recession, we have very little choice but to continue on the path of normalization.”

Precisely in the Eurozone, the publication of the preliminary data of theinflation of August, expected in slight acceleration. Barring a definite downside surprise (unlikely given the recent surge in gas and electricity prices), the figure should consolidate expectations of a 50 basis point rise by the ECB in September, even if some advisors agreed they are expressed for an increase of 75 basis points. In the US, on Friday, we will have the publication of the data on the job market in August. Also in the US, the ISM manufacturing index will be monitored on Tuesday, in light of the worsening recently highlighted by the new orders component. Also on Tuesday, the US consumer confidence index will be released, expected to improve slightly.

On the Asian front, the focus will be on Chinese manufacturing and services SMEs Wednesday in August, after the industry contracted last month. With regard to central banks, we will have the speeches of various Fed and ECB members, with the latter assuming some relevance in light of the inflation data and the approaching meeting of the Institute on 8 September.

On the whole, then, the unknown factor of gas remains in light of Gazprom’s scheduled closure (for three days) of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline starting from 31 August. The market fears that Russia may block supplies after the deadline. The markets had started very badly last week, mainly because they were worried about the energy situation in Europe. All this risks setting the new gas record in Amsterdam again, which jumped over 340 euros per megawatt hour last week. With the pressure on the Italian government to adopt new measures against price rises and the electoral campaign in full swing, attention then from 2 to 4 September at the traditional forum in Cernobbio, on Lake Como.
