The main story today will be Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s remarks at the Fed’s annual Jackson Hole retreat. He is expected to reiterate the Fed’s dedication to wringing excess inflation out of the economy and its plan to continue weighing progress month by month. There might also be clues as to what the Fed’s response might look like, broadly speaking, over the near term.
Rates were a little higher this morning ahead of Powell’s speech, although not as high as they were earlier this week. The Dow traded up this morning.

Yesterday’s $8 billion auction of 30-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) resulted in a yield of 1.97%, with demand higher than at the previous such auction. The difference between 30-year Treasury and 30-year TIPS yields indicates where the market expects to see the Consumer Price Index, on average, over the next 30 years. As of this morning, that difference trades at 2.32%.
