The day is finally upon us – p rominent central bankers, finance ministers, econ omists and market participants have all made their way to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the Fed’s annual symposium that kicked off yesterday. On occasions, former US Fed C hairman, Ben Bernanke, used this pl atform to indicate major changes in monetary policy. Back in 2012, Bernanke staunchly defend ed the Federal Reserve’s two previous rounds of large asset purchases and further signalled that the central bank may be gearing up to launch a third round of quantitative easing to stimulate the economy. Two years later the president of the European Central Bank (ECB) , Mario Draghi, stole the show at Jackson Hole by raising market expectations and alluding to the possibility that the ECB may follow in the foot steps of Bernanke. Fast forward four years later and it’s no wonder that today’s speech by Fed Chair, Janet Yellen , has been touted to be the highlight of the symposium.
