Scoreboard: Fed dove cry?

Concern about Syria and jitters over Fed tapering will dominate this week, and interplay between the two could get interesting.

The latest I’ve heard on Syria, is that President Barack Obama wants to run any possible attack by Congress before going in with guns blazing (the Brits ruled out a second parliamentary vote). The thing is, Congress doesn’t reconvene until September 9, so on that basis, it doesn’t look like there will be any military action till after then. It could of course be called back sooner, but I haven’t seen anything on that as yet and with Obama taken up with Group of 20 meetings this week that seems unlikely.
