  • The importance of breaking the “Fed Put” mindset for the sake of the Federal Reserve’s credibility and the integrity of the institution
  • The Fed holding the line on QT after reality begins to set in with Thursday’s release of data on the Fed’s balance sheet showing a doubling in balance sheet reduction.
