Let us talk about the #FED #FOMC's 1st #MonetaryPolicy meeting of 2020. Specifically, let us talk about the puzzle that is a flatter #PhillipsCurve...
The #FederalOpenMarketCommittee (#FOMC) of the #FederalReserveBank (#FED) of the #US concluded its 1st meeting of 2020 on the 29th January 2020. As expected, the FED did not change rates but left the #KeyPolicyRate, the #FederalFundsRate (#FFR) in the 1.5%-1.75% range...
Indeed, if one considers the #FED #Dotplot of December 2019, the decision to keep rates unchanged would not come as a surprise. What I wanted to focus on today is some key passages in the statement, highlighted in yellow in the screenshot below...its all #PhillipsCurve...

Lets talk about the upcoming 1st meeting of the #FED #FOMC (28-29 January 2020). Specifically, lets talk about the #DOTS...
The #FED #FOMC developed the so called #DotPlot in 2011 as a chart to record each FED's official forecast for the FED's key short-term interest rate (federal funds rate - #FFR). Currently, the FFR, following the December 2019 meeting is in the target range between 1.5% and 1.75%
The most recent #DotPlot is attached below. Each dot represents one #FED official, from the Chairman to fellow Governors. It is anonymous & as such, no one knows which official is responsible for what dot...

#ES_F if you look price action, the herd is being over ruled by 1-2 players. The herd is ‘valuing it’ down, while 1-2 are trying to prop it up. That’s why your seeing high ZiG Zag patterns.
#ES_F 1-2 are stepping away letting herd get short and 1-2 is using low volume periods to prop it back up.
The ‘herd’ is valuing at 3280 and 1-2 valuing at 3290 or greater.. #ES_F that’s why your seeing fall down when most market participants have a say. The actual equities look quite fragile in terms of patterns being exhibited.

As expected, the #FOMC cut policy rates a quarter-point, Chair #Powell referenced the Committee’s reliance on data dependency and provided a nuanced view of #economic conditions. Still, just because all that was “expected,” doesn’t take away from the fact it was also good policy.
Indeed, today’s announcement represents an important moment for the #Fed, in which policy rates were moved to appropriate levels, alongside significant liquidity provision, which is precisely the right combination in our view: this is a big positive for #markets.
Specifically, we think the #Fed moved to the lower end of what we believe should be the equilibrium rate of interest in an #economy that’s facing aging demographic trends, and which benefits from still positive interest rates.

A much better performance from Powell. But his tone and body language clearly showed that he believed that the US economy is doing well and this is just an insurance cut against the Trump Trade War and global weakness

Powell was clear the US will not go to negative rates. He believes that asset purchases and forward guidance have worked in the past and that is the way forward as well.

On yield curve inversion Powell does not see it as a recession indicator but rather a contraction in term premia driven by global low interest rates.

A brief discussion of how we are prepared for today's #FOMC minutes and Friday's #JacksonHole conference. 1/
First, know that #FOMC minutes are dramatically edited versions of transcripts so there is meaning beyond the last meeting. In the intermeeting period FINANCIAL CONDITIONS HAVE WEAKENED. 2/
There are a number of ways to measure this in USD terms, but they all point the same direction as high yield credit spreads, noted below, which are wider +50bps since July 31. 3/

I did Powell this AM, so might as well do the mins now. Thread 1/x
There's this ongoing discussion among #FOMC about deterioration in conditions. I'm really not seeing it...but my opinion doesn't count for as much. "Many participants" means it's a majority opinion of voters. 2/x
The ongoing labor market slack argument, advanced most prominently by @neelkashkari and @Jamesbullard (prolly not his real handle) gets a little attention, but not much. Can't employ everybody. 3/x

This is the insanity & silly talk promoted by central bankers globally.

Nobody asks the question.
