More about time than money: Greece and the ECB

In this week’s episode:

  • Why Greece’s loan extension request from the ECB is really more about time than money, and what investors should expect going forward
  • What’s the focal point for the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank as it ponders raising interest rates?
  • Why a weak Yen is good news for Japan and the global economy

On this week’s Market Week in Review video webcast, Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben contrasts the reactions of the media and the markets to the European Central Bank’s (ECB) rebuttal of the loan extension request made by Greece this week.

Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s episode, in which Erik also zeros in the primary factor he believes the FOMC (Federal Reserve Open Market Committee) will watch as it considers raising interest rates. Ristuben also looks at what a weak Yen and Japan’s export number means for global economies.
