FOMC minutes, Fed president speeches, IMF guidance, ECB chatter, BoJ banter and now the "Bernanke blog" … oh my!

This incessant chatter continues to produce daily noise, which convinces the traders on the Chicago CME Group floor that the so-called leadership is as perplexed as anyone.

Two people who are seemingly aligned with this Chicago sentiment of uncertainty are Larry Summers and J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon. They both are vocal about how the recent volatility in the currency and Treasury markets is a "warning shot across the bow."
