Powell Q&A: Noted that officials talked about path for cuts today

  • Far too early to declare a soft landing
  • I have always felt there was a possibility economy would avoid recession
  • There’s always a possibility of recession next year
  • Little basis for thinking there’s a recession now
  • There was a general expectation that rate cuts will be a topic of conversation going forward

The moves in the market has been huge. USD/JPY is down 225 pips on the day now and 2-year yields down 25 bps. This might be the last chance to get 4% 10-years, which is wild given that they were above 5% just six weeks ago.
