Once a week we summarize the most important market developments and macroeconomic events in a brief chartbook.

Mankind invented a system to cope with the fact that we are so intrinsically lousy at manipulating numbers. It's called the graph.
Quick recap
  • Wednesday’s FOMC press conference fueled investors’ worries about increasingly tight U.S. monetary policy as Jay Powell refused to rule out the possibility of a rate hike at every meeting this year.
  • The hawkish statement emphasized the economy’s strength alongside the increasing risk of overheating and initially triggered another decline of U.S. equities and cryptocurrencies.
  • Gold, defensives, growth, quality and momentum continued to underperform this week as benchmark rates moved higher.  
  • After a small rebound last week, China become the worst performer this week.
  • Investor focus next week will likely be on the labour market and the ECB press conference.
