Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's Jackson Hole speech on Friday was a let down.
There was no mention of monetary policy or issues the Fed is currently grappling with like soft inflation and wage growth.
Instead, the speech centered on financial regulation since the 2008 financial crisis.
"I don't think it's a surprise that this event happens during the last two weeks in August when so many people are away because the Fed doesn't want to shock the markets or make news," said Timothy Anderson, managing director of TJM Investments."
