The Week Ahead: Inflation and the Fed

February 20, 2021
The reflation and inflation meme tightened their grip on the markets.  Interest rates have risen, and curves have steepened.  Two events occurred around the same time in early November that sent a similar signal: the US election with prospects for significantly more stimulus and a vaccine's availability.  Since the US election and the announce…

PBOC Sends Signal as Market Looks Past Impeachment Vote

January 13, 2021
Overview: The US dollar is regaining ground lost in yesterday's setback against the major currencies.  Sterling is the notable exception.  It was toying with the $1.37 area, perhaps helped by the Governor of the Bank of England signal that there still are hurdles to adopting negative interest rates, which the futures market is still discountin…

Will PMIs Show Economies Hit Bottom? Are US-China Tensions Rising Again?

May 16, 2020
March was when the markets froze up. Many, including myself, thought closing the markets was possible as has been done during other big shocks and without jeopardizing the reputation of exchanges or officials.
