There’s a widespread perception that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell doesn’t give a damn about corporate news. It is solely a creature of comprehensive government economic reports – consumer price index, producer price index, industrial production, retail sales and, of course, non-farm payrolls. He also cares what his Fed peers say. But for the most part, a win blast is like a tree falling in the forest: it’s nowhere near to hear it make a sound.
