In case you missed the 60 Minutes interview with Fed Chair Powell Sunday night. Here is a brief synopsis:
Noting that US growth is “solid” and the labor market “strong”, Jerome Powell said in a 60 Minutes TV interview on Sunday that the Federal Reserve “can approach the question of when to begin to reduce interest rates carefully.” Powell repeated comments from last week’s FOMC press conference that the Fed wants to see more progress on inflation before cutting rates. Powell downplayed chances that the Fed would begin cutting rates at its next meeting in March, saying policymakers want to be as confident as they can that inflation is on the path to the Fed’s two percent target. Yet he said “almost every single person” on the FOMC believes it would be appropriate to begin cutting rates sometime this year.
Tuesday we have 4 Fed Speakers , Mester, Kashkari, Collins, and Harker, Wednesday we have 4 again,

And on Thursday the USDA Supply and Demand numbers will be released for the country and the world.
Make it a solid week and always, “plan the trade and trade the plan”
