Post-Fed we’ve Oil as the sole BEGOS Market at present below today’s Neutral Zone; the balance of the bunch are within same, and volatility is light-to-moderate. The FOMC’s Policy Statement was fairly as expected: a key Fed metric for which to watch is the 29 September release of August’s Core PCE Index. Oil’s “Baby Blues” have (in real-time) kinked lower for the first time since 29 August: once below their +80% axis we can make a guesstimate as to near-term downside price distance; even by Market Values, Oil still is better than +6 points above tis smooth valuation line. The Econ Baro wraps its week today with metrics including September’s Philly Fed Index, August’s Leading (i.e. “lagging”) Indicators and Existing Home Sales, plus Q2’s Current Account Deficit.
