  • The drone attack on Saudi oil facilities has resulted in Brent jumping 8%. The longer-term impact depends on how long the Saudi outage (50% of production has been halted) will last.
  • Last week saw the bond sell-off continue. The ECB reintroduced quantitative easing, and indicated that fiscal policy should lead from now.
  • The Fed meets this week with markets anticipating a 25 basis points cut. Indications of future rate movements will be closely watched.
  • In terms of Brexit, Boris Johnson meets with EU leaders today. Tuesday brings the Supreme Court ruling on Parliament’s prorogation, which the Government expects to win.
