Fear The Talking Fed! Fed Jacks Target Rate Up By 50 BPS, 9 More Rate Hikes A Comin’ (Yield Curve Rises)

Well, the Fed’s talking heads have been saying a 50 basis point hike was coming in May … and it appeared!

And it looks like 9 rate hikes are a comin’ by February 2023.

The Fed’s Dot Plots shows a cooling of Fed rate hikes by 2024 and beyond.

Here is the path of Balance Sheet peel-off.

The US Treasury actives curve is up by 14 bps at the 10-year tenor and up 17 bps at the 2-year tenor.

The plan will see $30 billion of Treasuries and $17.5 billion on mortgage-backed securities roll off. After three months, the cap for Treasuries will increase to $60 billion and $35 billion for mortgages.

I could read the Fed’s speech on their decision, but since The Fed has been so highly politicized, I don’t really care what they say. Only what they do.
