  1. Inflating inflation targeting: The Fed and other central banks have made 2% inflation their holy grail but the world has changed several times since then. Is it time for a change? We discuss NGDP targeting, higher inflation targets and  why we are talking about it. Perhaps governments should bear the brunt.
  2. Suspicious oil rally: The price of crude oil has jumped around 20% from the lows seen just this month. We weigh supply, demand, speculation and other ingredients to reach a skeptical conclusion.
  3. Preview:  US and UK GDP updates, durable goods orders and the Jackson Hole Symposium stand out.

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
