Well Greenspan set rates based on inflation, unemployment and investment and believed in keeping the markets guessing.

Bernanke is in favour of inflation targeting where he sets an acceptable inflation range and tries to fly within it. It makes inflation much more prominent in rate setting and because the market will soon know his target they are trying to react before the announcement comes, whenever that may be. Any news that affects inflation will move the markets more than it would have pre-Monday.

Lower productivity means more expensive relative labour and higher inflation

Thanks. Makes sense.

Didn't they say that the market reacts to a new FED chairman anyway.

The NASDAQ is already 1.2% down. Could be quite a session.

the problem is that the inflation figures are "cooked". the true inflation rate in the US is higher than the official figures

The guys moving all the volume on the Wall Street floor are well aware of that fact.

They will also be worried that a reported fall in productivity will make foreign investors more likely to invest in China/India rather than US firms, this reduces the value of US stock through loss of attracted investment.

The same fear also weakens the dollar, makes oil more expensive and further boosts inflation, the DOW is a very nervous place to be trading, for now.

If Iran receives a pre-emptive strike will this drive the $ down or will it be seen as a safe haven?

http://freeserve.advfn.com/news_Iran-presi...k_14046489.html

Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed his
country will "under no condition" abandon its disputed nuclear drive
, including
ultra-sensitive uranium enrichment work.
"Who are you to threaten the independent people of Iran? The Iranian people
will follow their own path and will under no condition renounce their legitimate
right," he was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.
