What A Difference a Week Makes

What A Difference a Week Makes

Last week I wrote that Eurodollar spreads were indicating only one hike a year, a glacial pace.  For example the spread between the September 2016 contract and September 2017 contract had settled on Tuesday June 21, at 23.5.  Yesterday, June 28, this spread closed at just 14 bps.  The surprise Brexit vote took Fed tightening out of the equation.  Where this is most apparent is in the Fed...
