- Fed raising rates with low bond yields and low inflation - is the Fed trying to slow the economy? - why?


Inflation is creeping up.  Paring that down is in their charter.  While Trump would be very happy to overheat the economy, the Fed takes a longer view.

It's far better to deflate these bubbles well in advance of their popping.

Low bond yields? The 10 year just popped over 3%. We're seeing higher yields than what the market prefers.

Nothing about a prior artificial credit expansion?

I agree fully.

Though I'd rather the Fed not be involved in the generation of these bubbles to begin with.

Post of the Day!

Maybe they're not popping the bubble -- maybe they're just inflating it more slowly, which is still enough to freak the trade-bots...

So when and if the dow goes up 600 points next week you will be on here congratulating Trump for it correct?

The Dow was down today and that was Trump's fault...until it surged 547 points. That is obviously because of Obama.
