Inflation and the Fed, What’s The Outlook for The Yield Curve?
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM ET
Inflation is proving to be much higher and especially much more persistent that the Fed hoped for; this has led to a rapid progression towards a very hawkish policy stance. There is no doubt that the Fed can bring inflation down, but there is also no doubt that there is a cost to it: the risk of recession is going up a lot. The market knows it, and the yield curve is the most inverted since the year 2000. The current Fed’s policy stance argues for the curve to remain inverted for several more months. However, when a Fed pause will come into view, the curve should start to re-steepen as the market will price in rate cuts in the not-too-distant future.
