Two things that caught my attention this week, 10/28/18:

        * US economic data broadly weakening, especially leading indicator housing data, as consensus remains 4 more rate hikes by the end of 2019 along with continued USD strength. 

        * Dallas Fed Chair Kaplan made comments Friday about IOER which caught our attention as CS’ Zoltan Poszar put out a report in August arguing that US deficit crowding out of US money markets manifested in IOER/Fed Funds movements would force the Fed to stop QE Taper by year-end 2018. 

As discussed in this video, Registration is OPEN for the “FFTT 2018 Wrap up”, a 2 hour virtual event.  Seats are limited. $97 per person.

Two things that caught my attention this week, 10/21/18 from Luke Gromen on Vimeo.

  • Rules Based Global Order appears to be breaking down, this has far-ranging implications for FX, rates, & risk markets.
  • Housing is beginning to soften notably – makes me wonder if GS’ “5 more rate hikes by 2019” call is this cycle’s version of “$200 oil” call from 2008

 FFTT,LLC will be offering a two hour virtual event with in November.  Check out this link for more information:

- we are limiting this event to 100 people since I want to be able to answer as many questions live after my presentation as possible.

Two things that caught my attention this week, 10/14/18:

 * Seems as if news feed narratives are “All negative on China, all the time.”  Such unanimity always makes us pause & wonder “what else could happen?”

* Op-ed in Saudi’s state newspaper threatened to price oil in CNY, among other threats levied if the US sanctions Saudi over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 

 

Luke will be hosting a virtual 2-hour event in November for 100 people, to stay updated with details, please join our mailing list (since they will get the first choice to join!) at fftt-llc.com.
