    The S&P 500 futures are up 1 basis point and are trading roughly in line with fair value.
    The Nasdaq 100 futures are up 11 points and are trading 0.1% above fair value.
    The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are up 20 points and are trading 0.1% above fair value.


    The weekly MBA Mortgage Application Index rose 7.4% with refinancing applications increasing 9.0% and purchase applications rising 7.0%.

    Yesterday’s close marked the first time since 1981 that the 2s10s spread was more than 100 basis points, reflecting worries about the Fed possibly taking rates too high and forcing a recession.

    The 2-yr note yield is up three basis points this morning at 5.04% and the 10-yr note yield is unchanged at 3.97%.


    ADP Employment Change showed that private payrolls rose by 242,000 in February (consensus 195,000) following a revised 119,000 increase in January (from 106,000).


    The trade deficit for January widened to $68.3 billion (consensus -$69.0 billion) from an upwardly revised $67.2 billion (from -$67.4 billion), as imports were $9.6 billion more than December imports and exports were $8.5 billion more than December exports.

    The key takeaway from the report is that both imports and exports increased versus December, reflecting a pickup in global trade activity that is a reflection of increased demand.


    only DUCK TAPE (lol) will save us from market losses
    as FOMC chief notes interest rates will go higher


    the SOFT LANDING is difficult to achieve.
    Probably 4 more 25BPS or even a 50BPS is not out of range for March
    Still FOMC is not root cause of inflation
    A balanced budget & less “ad hoc” spending is a good start :)
