Key Events In The Coming Week

Key Events In The Coming Week

The key economic releases this week are the consumer confidence report on Tuesday, the third estimate of Q4 GDP on Thursday, and the PCE report as well as Personal Income & Spending data on Friday. In addition, there are several scheduled speaking engagements by Fed officials this week.

Elsewhere, on Wednesday, the UK is expected to trigger Article 50 starting the European Union exit process. In EM we have monetary policy meetings in Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, Mexico and South Africa. Banxico to hike by 25bp.

Recap of key global events:

Article 50 to be triggered on Wednesday

  • The hawkish BoE and the short market position support GBP, but analysts see negative risks in the months ahead and expect a very slow start of the negotiations after the UK government activates Article 50 next week. Europe will be busy with the elections in France and Germany, while their immediate Brexit focus will be on the UK's EU budget contributions. Markets may have to wait until the end of this year, or even early next year, to have a better view on the negotiations and the chances of a transition period.US data and European CPI & conf. indicators dominate
    • **US: **Expect a slight upward revision of 4Q GDP (final) to 2.0% from 1.9% previously. On Friday, we also look for personal spending growth of 0.2% m/m for February, unchanged from growth in January (just +0.1% in real terms). BofA looks for personal income growth of 0.4% mom, also unchanged from growth in the prior month.
      • EA: Markets We expect March inflation at 1.7% driven by developments in Spanish electricity prices and liquid fuel prices in the Euro area. On PMIs we continue to interpret them carefully given the disconnect between 'soft' survey data and 'hard' activity data. We have argued before that when this is the case, other soft data (like national sentiment indicators) and hard data are usually more reliable for economic forecasting.The week ahead in Emerging Markets
        • There will be monetary policy meetings in Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, Mexico and South Africa. We forecast Banxico hiking 25bp. Rating reviews in Russia and Bahrain.Image/photo

          A breakdown of daily key events in the coming week courtesy of Deutsche Bank:

          • We’re kicking off things this morning in Europe with Germany where the March IFO survey is due out. The latest M3 money supply reading for the Euro area is also due this morning. Over in the US this afternoon the sole release is the Dallas Fed’s manufacturing survey for March.
            • With little to highlight in Europe tomorrow, the focus will be on the US where we get the advance goods trade balance for February, wholesale inventories for February, consumer confidence for March, S&P/Case-Shiller house price index for January and Richmond Fed manufacturing survey for March are due.
              • Wednesday kicks off in Japan where retail sales and small business confidence data is due. Over in Europe the focus will be on the UK with the February money and credit aggregates data. In the US on Wednesday the only data due out is pending home sales.
                • Turning to Thursday, during the European session the most notable data is due out of Germany where the first estimate of CPI in March is due. Also due out are various March confidence indicators for the Euro area. In the US on Thursday the early data is the third estimate of Q4 GDP and Core PCE, while initial jobless claims data is also due.
                  • The busiest day looks set to be reserved for Friday. In Japan we will get February CPI, industrial production and employment data, while in China the official manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMI’s for March are due. In Europe we’ll get CPI reports for France and the Euro area along with Q4 GDP in the UK and unemployment in Germany. In the US data due includes February personal income and spending reports, PCE core and deflator readings, the Chicago PMI for March and the final University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading revision.
                    • Away from the data the Fedspeak diary this week is packed. Today we see Evans and Kaplan speak, tomorrow we have George, Kaplan and Powell speaking along with Fed Chair Yellen (albeit at a conference which doesn’t suggest a focus on the economy or monetary policy), Wednesday see’s Evans, Rosengren and Williams speak, Thursday has Mester, Williams and Kaplan scheduled and Friday finishes with Kashkari. Away from that other important events this week include the BoE bank stress test scenarios today, a Scottish Parliament debate* * *|

                      Monday, March 27

                      • 10:30 AM Dallas Fed manufacturing index, March (consensus +22.0, last +24.5)
                        • 01:15 PM Chicago Fed President Evans (FOMC voter) speaks: Chicago Fed President Charles Evans will participate in a panel discussion on “Monetary Policy in a New Economic Environment” at the Global Interdependence Center’s Central Banking conference in Madrid.
                          • 06:30 PM Dallas Fed President Kaplan (FOMC voter) speaks: Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan will participate in a panel on economic conditions and the role of monetary policy hosted by the Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics, and Public Policy at the Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Audience and media Q&A is expected. **Tuesday, March 28 **
                            • 08:30 AM U.S. Census Bureau Report on Advance Economic Indicators; Advance goods trade balance, February preliminary (GS -$64.5bn, consensus -$66.6bn, last -$68.8bn): We estimate the goods trade deficit narrowed $4.3bn to $64.5bn in February, following last month’s $4.4bn widening that we believe reflected a pronounced impact from the relatively early Chinese New Year, which likely shifted the timing of imports from February to January. Available port statistics in February suggest a sharp pullback in inbound container traffic, further evidence of the Chinese New Year shift; Wholesale inventories, February preliminary (consensus +0.2%, last -0.2%)
                              • 09:00 AM S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index, January (GS +0.7%, consensus +0.7%, last +0.9%): We expect the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index to rise 0.7% in the January report following a 0.9% increase in the prior month. The measure still appears to be influenced by seasonal adjustment challenges, and we place more weight on the year-over-year increase, which rose to 5.6% from 5.2% in December.
                                • 10:00 AM Conference Board consumer confidence, March (GS 115.0, consensus 114.0, last 114.8): We forecast that consumer confidence edged up to 115 following last month’s 3.2pt rise to a new cycle high. Our forecast reflects encouraging consumer sentiment data in February as well as recent stock market strength during most of the survey period.
                                  • 10:00 AM Richmond Fed manufacturing index, March (consensus +15, last +17)
                                    • **12:45 PM Kansas City Fed President George (FOMC non-voter) speaks: **Kansas City Fed President Esther George will give the keynote speech on the U.S. economy and monetary policy at a forum on “Banking and the Economy: A Forum for Women in Banking” in Midwest City, Oklahoma. Audience Q&A is expected.
                                      • 12:50 PM Fed Chair Yellen (FOMC voter) speaks: Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will give a speech titled “Addressing Workforce Development Challenges in Low-Income Communities” at the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s annual conference in Washington D.C. No Q&A is expected.
                                        • 01:00 PM Dallas Fed President Kaplan (FOMC voter) speaks: Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan will participate in a moderated discussion at an event hosted by the Dallas Committee on Foreign Relations in Dallas, Texas. Audience Q&A is expected.
                                          • 04:30 PM Fed Governor Powell (FOMC voter) speaks: Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell will give a speech on the history and structure of the Federal Reserve as a part of the West Virginia University College of Business Economics’ Distinguished Speaker Series. Audience Q&A is expected. **Wednesday, March 29 **
                                            • 09:20 AM Chicago Fed President Evans (FOMC voter) speaks: Chicago Fed President Charles Evans will give a lecture on current economic conditions and monetary policy as a part of the DZ Bank's International Capital Market’s Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. Audience and media Q&A is expected.
                                              • 10:00 AM Pending home sales, February (GS +4.0%, consensus +2.1%, last -2.8%): Regional housing data released so far suggest a fairly strong rebound in contract signings for existing homes in February, possibly reflecting the unseasonably warm temperatures and limited snowfall during the month. We expect a 4.0% increase in the pending homes sales index that would fully reverse January’s 2.8% pullback. An increase of that magnitude would be particularly encouraging in the context of higher mortgage rates. We have found pending home sales to be a useful leading indicator of existing home sales with a one- to two-month lag.
                                                • 11:30 AM Boston Fed President Rosengren (FOMC non-voter) speaks: Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren will discuss the economic outlook at a Boston Economic Club luncheon.
                                                  • 01:15 AM San Francisco Fed President Williams (FOMC non-voter) speaks: San Francisco Fed President John Williams will give a presentation titled “From Sustained Recovery to Sustainable Growth; What a Different Four Years Makes” to the Forecasters Club of New York. Audience and media Q&A is expected. **Thursday, March 30 **
                                                    • 08:30 AM GDP (third), Q4 (GS +1.9%, consensus +2.0%, last +1.9%); Personal consumption, Q4 (GS +3.0%, consensus +3.0%, last +3.0%): We do not expect a revision on an unrounded basis in the third estimate of Q4 GDP, where growth is currently reported at a 1.9% pace (qoq ar). While our base case entails an unchanged reading for headline GDP, we believe there is some risk of an upward revision to the personal consumption and business fixed investment components.
                                                      • 08:30 AM Initial jobless claims, week ended March 25 (GS 240k, consensus 247k, last 261k): Continuing jobless claims, week ended March 18 (consensus 2,037k, last 1,990k): We expect initial jobless claims to decline sharply to 240k, reversing last week’s sharp rise that we believe largely reflected the impact of Winter Storm Stella. State-level details suggest an impact from the storm on the order of 15k during the week. Continuing claims – the number of persons receiving benefits through standard programs – have continued to trend down in recent weeks, suggestive of additional labor market improvement that we expect to continue.
                                                        • 09:45 AM Cleveland Fed President Mester (FOMC non-voter) speaks: Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester will give a speech on payment system improvement at the 10th Annual Risk Conference, hosted jointly by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and DePaul University’s Center for Financial Services in Chicago.
                                                          • 11:15 AM San Francisco Fed President Williams (FOMC non-voter) speaks: San Francisco Fed President John Williams will give a speech at the launch and learning community event for the Strong, Prosperous and Resilient Communities Challenge in New York.
                                                            • 03:00 PM Dallas Fed President Kaplan (FOMC voter) speaks: Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan will take part in a moderated Q&A on economic conditions and the role of monetary policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Capital Markets Summit in Washington D.C.
                                                              • 04:30 PM New York Fed President Dudley (FOMC voter) speaks: New York Fed President William Dudley will give a speech on “The Importance of Financial Conditions in the Conduct of Monetary Policy” at a Financial Literacy Day & Laboratory Dedication event at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. Audience Q&A is expected. **Friday, March 31 **
                                                                • **8:30 AM Personal income, February (GS +0.5%, consensus +0.4%, last +0.4%); Personal spending, February (GS +0.3%, consensus +0.2%, last +0.2%); PCE price index, February (GS +0.12%, consensus +0.1%, last +0.4%); Core PCE price index, February (GS +0.17%, consensus +0.2%, last +0.3%); PCE price index (yoy), February (GS +2.1%, consensus +2.1%, last +1.9%); Core PCE price index (yoy), February (GS +1.7%, consensus +1.7%, last +1.7%): **Based on details in the PPI and CPI reports, we forecast that the core PCE price index rose 0.17% month-over-month in February, or 1.7% from a year ago. Additionally, we expect that the headline PCE price index increased 0.12% in February, or 2.1% from a year earlier. We expect a 0.5% increase in February personal income and a 0.3% rise in personal spending.
                                                                  • 09:45 AM Chicago PMI, March (GS 56.0, consensus 56.9, last 57.4): We expect the Chicago PMI to edge down to 56.0 in March, following a sharp 7.1pt increase in February. The index is likely to remain at a level consistent with solid manufacturing growth, in line with incoming reports from other regional manufacturing surveys.
                                                                    • 10:00 AM University of Michigan consumer sentiment, March preliminary (GS 97.8 consensus 97.6, last 97.6): We expect the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index to edge up an additional 0.2pt to 97.8 in the March final estimate, reflecting some further improvement among more timely measures of consumer confidence. The preliminary report’s measure of 5- to 10-year ahead inflation expectations declined three tenths to 2.2%, a new record low. However, median 5-year gas price expectations also dropped to a 12-year low, and in past research we’ve found a short-term relationship between these two measures that often results in a reversal in subsequent months. While we cannot rule out the possibility of a step-down in underlying views about the long-term inflation outlook, we see this as a tentative reason to expect a rebound over the next couple months.
                                                                      • 10:00 AM Minneapolis Fed President Kashkari (FOMC voter) speaks: Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari will take part in a moderated discussion on the economy and the Federal Reserve system at the Annual Banking Law Institute seminar in Minneapolis. Audience Q&A is expected.
                                                                        • 10:30 AM St. Louis Fed President Bullard (FOMC non-voter) speaks: St. Louis Fed President Bullard will participate in an interview on the U.S. economy and monetary policy at a Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education forum in New York. No media Q&A is expected. Source: Goldman, Bofa, DB

Massive 100 Kilogram Gold Coin Worth $4.5 Million Stolen From German Museum

Massive 100 Kilogram Gold Coin Worth $4.5 Million Stolen From German Museum

Perhaps even more brazen than the infamous theft of a bucket full of gold woth $1.6 million from an armored truck in broad daylight in Midtown Manhattan last September 29, moments ago local German press has reported that thieves broke into Berlin's Bode Museum and made off with a massive 100-kilogram (221-pound) gold coin worth millions.

Image/photo

According to German media, the stolen coin is the "Big Maple Leaf", a commemorative piece issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007. The three-centimeter (1.18-inch) thick coin, with a diameter of 53 centimeters (20.9 inches), has a face value of $1 million. **By weight alone, however, it would be worth almost $4.5 million at market prices. **

The Bode Museum, located on the German capital's UNESCO-listed Museum Island, houses one of the world's biggest coin collections. The holding includes 102,000 coins from ancient Greece and about 50,000 Roman coins.

Spokesman Stefen Petersen said thieves apparently entered through a window about 3:30 a.m. Monday, broke into a cabinet where the "Big Maple Leaf" coin was kept, and escaped with it before police arrived.

German police said on Twitter that the robbers likely used a ladder found at a nearby rail track to break into the museum at around 3:30 am. Suburban rail traffic was interrupted as investigators combed the area for clues. The police did not comment on how the theives managed to cart the extremely heavy "pet rock" out of the museum without being spotted or triggering any alarms.

The museum says the coin is in the Guinness Book of Records for its purity of 999.99/1000 gold. It has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on one side and maple leaves on the other.

It was unclear if the coin has already been "deposited" at one of the numerous central or commercial bank vaults who have experienced a dramatic drop in physical gold inventory as much of the yellow metal has moved to China and various private vaults in recent years, and duly replaced by mere paper claims on said metal.

Trump Creates New Office For Son-In-Law Kushner To Overhaul Government

Trump Creates New Office For Son-In-Law Kushner To Overhaul Government

President **Trump is reportedly creating a new position for his son-in-law **and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

The newly formed White House Office of American Innovation will leverage business ideas and potentially privatize some government functions, according to Reuters, as Kushner says**:**
> "The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens,"
Image/photo

In a statement to the Post, Trump said:
> "I promised the American people I would produce results, and apply my ‘ahead of schedule, under budget’ mentality to the government."
Some of the areas he will focus on are** veterans' care, opioid addiction, technology and data infrastructure, workforce training and infrastructure**, according to the report.

Kushner has been a regular presence at his father-in-law's side and was earlier cleared by the Justice Department to serve as a White House senior adviser even as Democrats raised concerns about his potential conflicts of interest.

Image/photo

Kushner's move comes one week after Ivanka Trump received her own office in the White House along with access to classified information and a government-issued phone after aides earlier said she would not take on a role in her father's White House.

Image/photo

While we are sure Mr Kushner is eminently qualified for this role, we can't help but feel a tinge of 'keep it in the family' angst as nepotism continues to rear its ugly head. However, what is more fascinating is that this new role was assigned just as** Kushner faces questions over his Russian dealings**... (as Axios summarizes)

The NYTimes has a story this morning on Jared Kushner being summoned before the Senate Intelligence Committee to answer questions on his meetings with Russian officials and Kremlin-linked businessmen. Key highlights:

  • The White House got a heads up earlier this month on potential questions about Kushner's meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
    • Kushner also apparently met with Sergey Gorkov, who heads up Obama-sanctioned Vnesheconombank.
      • WH spokeswoman Hope Hicks confirmed these meetings, but said Kusher "isn't trying to hide anything."
        • Questions for Kushner include **whether he discussed personal business deals **(included an over-leveraged Manhattan building), per the NYT. Image/photo

Diese E-Mail verrät, warum Google jemanden einstellt

<div>

Bei Google zu arbeiten ist für viele Webworker ein heiß begehrtes Ziel. Während ein normaler Bewerber sich eher weniger Chancen ausrechnet, gibt der Personaler jetzt Tipps – vorab in einer E-Mail. <span id="more-809033"></span>

Genau das ist einem Bewerber tatsächlich passiert: Vor dem Vorstellungsgespräch bekam dieser eine E-Mail vom Konzern, in der er auf die Inhalte des Bewerbungsgesprächs vorbereitet wurde. Die Personalabteilung listete auf, worauf sich der (vermutlich sehr aufgeregte) Kandidat gefasst machen muss. Ein Freund von ihm, Sujay Maheshwari, veröffentlichte auf seinem Blog jetzt einen Artikel mit dem Inhalt der besagten Nachricht.

Google will dich – doch das musst du drauf haben

Ein Recruiting-Prozess, in dem ein Angestellter dem Bewerber und nicht dem Unternehmen hilft – das hat Maheshwari  überrascht. Sein Freund hatte sich als Projektmanager beworben. Die Aufgaben bestehen laut der Stellenanzeige darin, neue Produkte umzusetzen, von denen User auch tatsächlich profitieren können – während die Features aber auch optimal für das Unternehmen funktionieren. Eine Art Manager für Produkte wird gesucht, ein Job, in dem für verschiedene Teams gearbeitet wird. Die nächste große App für Google bauen und sie ins Rennen zu schicken: absolut erwünscht. Neue Produktideen und Strategien sollen vom künftigen Angestellten entwickelt werden, der ein Generalist sein soll, allerdings auch Nischenerfahrung mitbringen soll. Google zerlegt die Anforderungen nochmal in fünf Punkte:

Unternehmenskultur

Führen und beeinflussen – das sind bei Google zwei wichtige Schlagworte. Warum du gerade bei Google die Stelle des Projektmanagers haben willst, solltest du aus dem Stehgreif beantworten können.

Produktdesign

Die Nutzer an erster Stelle sehen – das setzt Google voraus. Dem User soll das beste Nutzungserlebnis gewährt werden. Die Produkte müssen ins kleinste Detail abgestimmt werden – außerdem muss der Projektmanager den Designern seine Vorstellungen klar und deutlich vermitteln können.

Mögliche Fragen könnten sein, wie du Google Maps verbessern würdest oder was du an der Restaurantsuche verbessern würdest. Zusätzlich dazu könnte die Frage aufkommen, wie du Fake-Seiten beim Google-Search-Spam-Team aufspüren würdest. Außerdem kannst du dir noch Gedanken darüber machen, was dein liebstes Google-Produkt ist – und was dir daran gefällt und was du nicht so gut findest.

Streaming Video Competition Slowly Begins Killing The Bloated, Pricey Cable Bundle

Streaming Video Competition Slowly Begins Killing The Bloated, Pricey Cable Bundle

If you recall, the cable industry has spent the better part of the last decade arguing that a la carte television (offering users the ability to buy channels individually instead of in bloated bundles) would do two things: raise rates for all consumers, and kill off niche channels, which the industry argued simply couldn't survive outside of the bundle. The industry repeatedly used this logic to justify its decision to avoid delivering not only a la carte, but cheaper and more flexible channel bundles in general.

Some ten years later, and you'll be shocked to learn that higher cable TV rates and the death of niche channels... are happening anyway. The Wall Street Journal this week penned an interesting look at how cable companies are increasingly culling lesser-viewed channels from the cable lineup, largely to make way for more expensive programming (read: mostly sports). The report notes that while consumers have endlessly decried the high costs and limited flexibility in the channel bundle, the number of channels in the cable bundle has ballooned all the same:
> **
> "Since 2008, the average number of channels in U.S. cable bundles has grown from 129 to 199. But people typically watch only about 15 a week, according to Nielsen. Many networks get small audiences. Nearly 70 channels that collect an average of $13 of Americans’ monthly cable bills each accounted for about 0.5% or less of total TV viewing in January, according to a WSJ analysis of Nielsen and Kagan data."
> **
As broadcasters demand more and more money for the same content, cable providers have started either eliminating lesser watched channels from their cable lineup entirely, or shoveling these channels off into higher-priced bundles in a desperate attempt to stave off inevitable evolution.

But the die is already cast. Customers are tired of paying $130 per month for 200 (largey unwatched) channels, and are increasingly fleeing to streaming competitors -- resulting in 2016 seeing the highest cord cutting rates on record. Despite this, broadcasters continue to demand higher and higher rates, resulting in more and more annoying content blackouts and carriage fee disputes. Said disputes, which involve users losing access to content because cable and broadcasters can't agree on new rates, only act to further drive these annoyed customers to streaming alternatives.

And while cable companies have started ejecting lesser-watched niche channels from the lineup (not really as big of a deal as claimed as the PewDiePie era should make clear), consumers are expected to happily continue paying the same amount of money:
> **
> "Don’t expect cable-TV prices to fall as channels die: Cable executives say they can’t pass on savings since their programming costs are still rising faster than cable bill increases."
> **
That's of course why many smaller phone and cable companies are getting out of the cable TV game entirely, since their lack of size for leverage in content negotiations means their profit margins are untenable. It's also why giant companies like Comcast and AT&T are increasingly merging, consolidating, and buying content factories like NBC Universal or Time Warner, in the hopes that owning the cow helps them weather the evolutionary shitstorm to come.

The problem of course is that the cable and broadcast industry will eventually have to make less money in the face of streaming competition. It's not really a choice, but it's been marginally entertaining watching the sector try and avoid this reality.

Right now, some companies are offering so-called "skinny bundles" to appease frustrated customers, hoping these customers won't notice caveats, fees and hidden charges make these options as expensive as the traditional bundles they're supposed to supplant. But ultimately the cable and broadcast industry will have to lower traditional cable prices and begin offering more flexibility if they hope to truly compete with the original programming coming from the likes of Amazon, Netflix, YouTube, and eventually, Apple.

You'll know the entire sector has actually learned some sort of lesson when the cost of traditional cable drops. Until then, most of this shuffling around of channels is little more than a superficial, aesthetic attempt to avoid the stark reality that overlarge and overpriced cable TV bundles are doomed by the rise of streaming video competition.

Curl is C

Every once in a while someone suggests to me that curl and libcurl would do better if rewritten in a “safe language”. Rust is one such alternative language commonly suggested. This happens especially often when we publish new security vulnerabilities.
