Jackson Hole Conference Schedule And List Of Attendees Released

The Kansas City Fed has released the schedule of its two day Jackson Hole symposium which, officially kicked off with dinner on Thursday night, hosted by dissident regional Fed president, and dissenter, Esther George (she voted against Yellen’s decision to keep rates unchanged in March, April and July). The highlight is tomorrow’s 10am ET Janet Yellen speech titled “The Federal Reserve’s Monetary Policy Toolkit.”

The speech is important because no matter what Yellen says, the market is virtually assured to surge as Citadel’s momentum ignition algos are greenlighted by the NY Fed trading desk.

Note the symbolic bear in the glass cage on the photo below.

Key highlights: Chair Yellen to give speech Friday morning; panel discussion Saturday with Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, European Central Bank Executive Board Member Benoit Coeure and Bank of Mexico Governor Agustin Carstens
