Outlook for Week 31/2023
"The Bank of Japan's artistry lies in orchestrating market surprises with masterful finesse."
Welcome to issue #66 of fx:macro!
There's a lot of material in this newsletter, so I included a Summary table with the most important info in one place. Everything you find there is derived from data and news in the accompanying PDFs. It's not necessary to go through them all but they provide a lot of depth and background. Skip them if you're short on time or just read the ones that are relevant for you.
The cover image was AI-generated via Midjourney, the quote was made up by ChatGPT.
If you like this newsletter please consider sharing or forwarding it to others who might be interested in it. I'm also on Twitter @fxmacroguy if you want to reach out.
I've been reading Lykeion for a while and highly recommend you check it out! It's a new type of financial media – a free bi-weekly newsletter, monthly research, and podcasts navigating the intersection of business, finance, and geopolitics.
Lykeion was founded by a team of former analysts, researchers, and portfolio strategists, and they’re delivering investment-grade insights, communicated simply and without hyperbole.
