The setting sun reflects off the European Central Bank (ECB) headquarters on the bank of the River Main in this aerial photograph in Frankfurt, Germany, on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The ECB’s response to the coronavirus has calmed markets while setting it on a path that could test its commitment to the mission to keep prices stable.

Germany and France will update issuance plans on Monday — and it remains to be seen if they will stick to targets set earlier in the year. The market will be watching European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde’s address at Wednesday’s ECB and its Watchers conference for clues on a possible extension of the institution’s pandemic bond-buying program.

Food Insecurity On The Rise; Governor Relaxes Restaurant Restrictions | Coronavirus

The ongoing pandemic will leave many children in Massachusetts wanting for food. The need will be keenly felt in Barnstable County.

During a news conference Thursday, September 24, Senator Julian A. Cyr (D-Truro) said the Greater Boston Food Bank has projected that one in eight people in Eastern Massachusetts will experience food insecurity—not knowing where their next meal is coming from—before the end of the year because of COVID-19. This is an increase of 59 percent over last year.

Barnstable, Nantucket, Norfolk and Plymouth counties were identified as being the hardest hit with projected food insecurity rates increasing by more than 70 percent.

As a result of the pandemic, people in the state have been faced with job loss and might be facing food insecurity for the first time. Help is available for families in need, including at the Family Pantry of Cape Cod in Harwich, the Falmouth Service Center

ETFs at Risk as U.S. Consumer Confidence Slips to Six-Year Low

Worries about job prospects and business conditions have deeply impacted U.S. consumer confidence in August, slipping to the lowest level since 2014. The Conference Board’s measure of consumer confidence index stands at 84.8, comparing unfavorably with July’s revised reading of 91.7. Moreover, July’s reading lagged the consensus estimate of 93, per a Bloomberg’s poll.

The Present Situation Index, which gauges consumer views on current business and labor market conditions, declined 11.7 points from July to 84.2 in August. Meanwhile, the Expectations Index, which is a measure of consumers’ short-term (for the next six months) outlook for income, business and labor market conditions, dropped 3.7 points from the previous month to 85.2 in August. It is being believed that given the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic after the rise in the number of new cases in June and July, consumer spending might not rise in the near term at least. Also,

Will Volatility Spread to the FX Market?

Article Summary: Geopolitical tensions boiled to the surface this past week and created significant market swells. Is this just another one-off jump in fear or a turning point in sentiment? What lies in store for the currency market should volatility return?

US Dollar Awaits Heavier Volatility, Rate Speculation Returns

There was a considerable commotion in the financial markets this past week with sharp declines in global equities and sizable swells in volatility measures (the short-term equity-based measure increased nearly 60 percent on Thursday).

Euro Starts to Slip Under Weight of Falling Inflation Expectations

Now that inflation expectations are falling, additional evidence of slowed growth can compound the issues facing the Euro in the near-term. While we anticipate exogenous influences maintaining their clout with respect to the Euro, we shouldn’t be dazed by the low volatility state persisting in spot FX markets, as more local influences are starting to exert themselves

Govt names new accounting officer

Government has appointed a new accounting officer at the Uganda Embassy in Denmark following the cash scam by mission officials last month. Mr Michael Karugaba has been appointed to replace Ms Alex Hope Mukubwa as the new accounting officer. The decision follows a story published by Daily Monitor on August 24, which was based on an audio clip where Ugandan diplomats at the embassy in Denmark held a zoom meeting and discussed a fraudulent scheme to share the embassy money they were not able to spend during the 2019/2020 financial year that ended in June. Starting work Mr Patrick Mugoya, the permanent secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told this newspaper that Mr Karugaba is expected to start work next week. “I want to assure the public that we will get to the bottom of this issue [of planned plunder of government money]. The investigation has already started and

Contrarians Should Search Out Yield

Going against the socially accepted macro forecast is so fundamental it has its own name – contrarian investing. I prefer the French expression à rebours, against the grain. Contrarians always assume the consensus is wrong.

What isn’t widely understood is how shabbily the consensus forecast is constructed and its telling short-term impact on financial markets. Consider, after Black Monday, interest rates collapsed based on the consensus view of impending recession. The Fed changed horses in midstream, from tightening to easing credit.

But, by springtime (six months after Black Monday) it reversed course and interest rates rose from 8 1/2% to 9 1/2%. Prevailing conclusions shifted from recession around the corner and a feeble dollar to an overheating scenario of galloping inflation and a strong currency. Both points of view proved erroneous.

Social media deal earns advertisers’ ‘likes’, but not yet all their dollars

By Martinne Geller

LONDON (Reuters) – Advertisers who boycotted social media are not all rushing back, despite an agreement by Facebook, YouTube and Twitter on how to curb harmful content online.

Unilever, one of the world’s biggest advertisers, told Reuters the move this week was “a good step in the right direction,” but would not say whether it would resume paid advertising on Facebook in the United States next year after stopping over the summer.

Coca-Cola also remains paused on Facebook and Instagram and declined to say if this changed its view. Beam Suntory, maker of Jim Beam bourbon and Courvoisier Cognac, plans to stay away from paid advertising for the rest of 2020 and reassess in 2021 based on how Facebook adjusts its approach.

Over 1,000 advertisers joined a Facebook boycott over concerns it wasn’t doing enough to combat hate speech. U.S. civil rights groups enlisted multinationals to help
