Inflation. What else?

The inflationary threat continues to take center stage, particularly in the US and probably for some time to come. Bond yields edged up and equities lost some ground yesterday, although European markets are up this morning. The USD weakened further, the EUR/USD pair now nearing 1.22, but overall the market moves should remain rather moderate ahead of the release of the Fed minutes tomorrow. The Japanese Q1 GDP figures were a bit worse than expected, as activity posted a 1.3% qoq contraction in Q1.
