Video Podcast: Is the Fed Done?

Summary:
Today is January 1, 2019. I wish you all a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year! In this video, I discuss why the new year is likely to start with some downbeat economic data that should cause the Fed to pause hiking interest rates. Regional business surveys conducted by five of the Fed district banks were very weak during December. That explains the recent drop in the 10-year Treasury bond yield below 2.70%. The 2-year Treasury yield tends to be a good one-year leading indicator of the federal funds rate, and is currently predicting no change this year. Are the implications bearish or bullish for the stock market? VIDEO
