  1. Central bank hawkishness: The Sintra gathering resulted in a gradual shift towards tapering from Draghi and an 180-degree shift from Carney in the same direction. While the BOJ is on the other side, where does the Fed stand?
  2. Stocks and bonds: Hawkishness from central banker justifies a sell-off of bonds, but the money is not going into stocks. What’s going on? We dive into different sectors, winners and losers within the great rotation.
  3. Commodities: Oil is recovering and this is not uncorrelated with the falling dollar, but not entirely. And how is gold behaving? It is somewhat confusing.
  4. What’s next?: Can this volatility continue? This is an open question. We have seen some calm after a few busy days. Will we have a calm summer? Or is this time different?
  5. Preview: A full buildup to the Non-Farm Payrolls could get bumpy with a holiday in the US. Also, watch key data from China as well as other places. We provide our #NFPGuesses.
