December FOMC: Connecting the Dots 

Jim Caron
After three rate cuts in 2019, the Fed indicated that it would not touch rates in 2020, instead forecasting that its next action would be a rate increase in 2021. The market, however, has a different view, pricing in a rate cut at the end of 2020.

Top 10 for ‘20 

Jim Caron
In our view, 2019 was a mid-cycle reset where the Fed cut rates three times, capital expenditure bottomed out and global GDP slowed. The bad news is that yields are low and investors are long on duration, a big risk given that the Fed will likely stay on the sidelines and not lower rates in 2020.

Jim Caron
