More of a relief rally than a risk-on move as stocks continue to gain after the FI close. SPX well through first resistance of 4016.25 ( July 22 high), ESU2 currently 4028.75. Stocks gained momentum amid no definitive hawkish guidance for Sep as Fed remains data dependent, soft landing still a significant challenge. Chair Powell says he does not see the US currently in a recession with "too many areas of the economy that are performing too well and of course" namely the labor market.
