As was widely expected, the @federalreserve’s Federal Open Market Committee raised the target range for the Federal Funds #policy rate by 50 basis points (bps), to between 0.75% and 1.0%, and announced the start of #runoff of the central bank’s balance sheet.
As previously suggested by the #Fed’s March minutes, the pace of runoff was confirmed today as $95 billion/month ($60 billion in U.S. #Treasuries and $35 billion in Agency #MBS, with a three-month phase-in period.
Also as expected, the statement reiterated that the #FOMC “anticipates that ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate,” underscoring the seriousness of #Fed policymakers in getting #inflation and inflation expectations under control.

1/ The #PhysicalVersusPaper discussion and the effect on silver’s price can be a heated topic. Part of the last “#spaces” event we touched on various #derivative products constructed by BofA and JP Morgan.
2/ Expanding on this topic where #Silver (the actual metal) is used as a ploy to create publicly traded #investments, let’s look at 2 more traded #securities.
3/ Just like buying processed food, what is on the front of the box may not necessarily have anything to do with the actual ingredients listed on the back label. Remember to read the #nutritional facts in the prospectus before consuming.

Positive Real Interest Rates are required to reduce inflation.
Negative Real IR's do not help rein prices.
This little much cannot be understood by the central bankers in high-inflation economies?
That works if the source of inflation is the money supply growth due to the deficit
However, if the source of #inflation is supply-side shocks, then raising policy interest rates might hurt more.
For e.g. the Exchange rate shock which brings in imported inflation into the economy needs forex supply to counter the import/outflow demand.
IR is the painful lever
yes, a higher CB Rate should technically curb aggregate demand and expenditures in the economy.
It can reduce the domestic money supply as bank borrowing declines and thereby reduces the monetary base.
Which should taper the imports & adjust the Current a/c.

Time for a look at tomorrow's 5Y TIPS new-issue auction. $TIP #Treasuries 1/
The last couple of October 5Y TIPS auctions (in 2020 and 2019) went off at yields significantly lower than the yields on the previous issue, from April, despite maturing six months later. 2/
That's mostly because Oct-maturing issues accrue inflation for six months after the April-maturing issues stop accruing & those months (March-Aug) historically have been better months for inflation than Sept-Feb, when discounting is rampant & gasoline demand is lower. 3/

Are we in a bubble❓

“Yes, but it's somewhat nuanced. There's unquestionably single assets that are bubbles."

"There's groups of assets which are arguably excessively valued."
Specifically which names are bubbles❓

“There is absolutely no question that if I look at a chart of $TSLA, this is a classic bubble.”

Our expectation is that the #Fed will purchase roughly equivalent to at least $1.5 trillion in #Treasuries over the remainder of the year (~$200 billion per month).
With asset purchasing in roughly these amounts, as well as everything the #Fed has already done, the magnitude of the #policy response to this #economic crisis is simply stunning.
In fact, by year end, we anticipate the #Fed’s balance sheet will have grown by a staggering $7 trillion in an effort to deal with the fallout of the #CoronavirusCrisis, or a pace of nearly $26 billion per day over a 270-day window.
