  1. Flattening yield curve: In the past, when long-term yields fell to short-term levels, a recession came. We are seeing some signs of that and pundits are worried despite strong growth. Why aren’t long-term yields rising? What role does the Fed have in these recent moves? Will this impact the Fed’s policy? Investors are confused and we try to explain.
  2. Oil prices: We finally have a breakout in oil prices, to the highest levels since 2015. What is driving the move? Is it justified? Can prices continue rising? We analyze all the factors: from Saudi politics, OPEC policies, US production after the hurricanes, future prices and lots more.
  3. Preview: Things are certainly warming up to the all-important pain point: inflation in the US. Also watch out for German growth, top-tier UK data and the US retail sales report.
