The Bond Market Foreshadows

PART 01: After the Federal Reserve raised the return on one of its bank programs, a record $756 billion flowed into the central bank’s reverse repo facility. Jerome Powel said, "We're not concerned." He should be. Like the Fed should've been in 2017 when something similar happened. A warning. Again.

PART 02: How is it possible 14 years of data shows the Federal Reserve FLAILING ABOUT trying to raise or lower bond yields with MASSIVE purchases of securities via quantitative easing? Because they were 'massive'. The CENTRAL BANK IS NOT CENTRAL to money. The bond market is.

PART 03: The multi-year benchmark revisions to Retail Sales and Industrial Production reveal - Surprise! - the economy was much worse than initially reported. But guess who wasn't surprised? The bond market.
