  1. BOJ’s grounded chopper: We cannot blame the Bank of Japan for lack of volatility, but they sure missed expectations. We discuss what they actually did, what expectations they created and why we can be hopeful for the next meeting.
  2. US data: GDP data disappointed with slow motion growth once again. We discuss the Fed decision, weak growth and the potential for a rate hike.
  3. BOE’s bad boyfriend?: Mark Carney tricked markets with potential rates. Is he doing it again with rate cuts? Recent data tells us that this time, it’s for real. But what exactly will he do? We preview the options for the Bank of England.
  4. Preview: Apart from the BOE, we have a full buildup to the Non-Farm Payrolls and quite a few other events. August is not necessarily a weak month.
