I just read that President Biden has never been more optimistic about the US economy than he is now.
Well, today’s closing bell is not optimistic and is downright bearish.
The US Treasury 10-year yield rose … ANOTHER … 11.3 basis points as rumors circulate that The Fed might actually raise their target rate by 75 basis points.
And the venerable Dow (DJIA) is down -152 points today.
Markets are anticipating an increase of The Fed Funds target rate from 1% to 1.568%, less than the rumored 75 basis point increase being bandied about.
If Biden is wildly optimistic about the economy, then he needs to get out of The White House and talk to average Americans and not people like Robert De Niro.
