Zuckerberg faces new risks as scandal-hit Facebook nears a saturation point   After all the controversy Facebook Inc. has generated in recent months, it seemed almost inevitable that at some point, the social media giant would get what it had coming. A reckoning. Wednesday’s disappointing earnings report and Thursday’s historic 19 per cent stock drop appeared to be a fitting conclusion to an easy narrative.   But the story isn’t that simple. Yes, the privacy protections the company put in place after a series of scandals played a role in the dismal earnings. But the company’s bigger problem is that the main social network— the invention that made it a corporate behemoth—simply can’t grow much more. READ MORE

In such a scenario, the MPC could afford to do a  'wait and watch’ at this juncture and consider more data points before a rate action. There might not be much urgency in delivering back to back rate hikes when the policy stance is still neutral. From a market perspective, bond yields already seem to have discounted another rate hike and hence yields are already at elevated levels
