  2. After the announcement, equity futures down, volatility up, market expects rate rise.
    But: Everything from Fed Funds to T-bonds is up, meaning fixed income is expecting a rate cut.

    I have said for years on here that the fed should have been raising rates and that inflation was coming. So how the fuxk didn't anyone see this coming is beyond my comprehension!!!!!!

    This was completely obvious. But all they cared about was the free trillions they kept printing and printing a d printing and with historical low rates for years, well of course you are going to fall behind the curve.
