There is a massive divergence between the collapsing US Treasury 10Y-2Y yield curve and the near-term forward spread. The near-term forward spread is the difference between the implied
interest rate expected on a three-month Treasury bill six quarters ahead and the current yield on a three-month Treasury bill.
As we already know, the 10Y-5Y yield curve has inverted signaling a coming recession.
This divergence between the Treasury yield curves and the near-term forward spread is occurring as US inflation hits the highest rate in 40 years.
Now President Biden is considering “Releasing the Kraken!” That is, releasing a huge amount of crude oil from the nations Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) in order to combat inflation. If the purpose of Biden’s executive orders were to limit fossil fuel production and consumption, why doesn’t Biden simply rescind his executive orders and allow the construction of the Keystone Pipeline?
