The Week Ahead:
By John Thorpe, Senior broker
There are few reports with market-moving potential in the March 27 week for the financials, However, for the grain markets and impact on livestock prices, Friday will mark the once a year prospective plantings report.
The third and final estimate of GDP for the fourth quarter 2022 will be reported at 7:30 CDT on Thursday. With the first quarter 2023 already nearing its end, there is far more interest in economic conditions in the January-March period.
Meanwhile, Fed policymakers will be back in public after the end of the communications blackout period from the March 21-22 FOMC meeting. No comments will be more closely attended to than Vice Chair of Supervision Michael Barr’s appearance before the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday at 9:00 CDT. Aside from the committee’s posturing, Barr’s written testimony and responses to questioning will be a warning to other banks to clean up their risk management and any overreliance on narrow business sectors.
