Leading up to the Fed Statement release, Neil Azous, a highly regarded macro strategist, Founder of Rareview Macro, and Author of the Sight Beyond Sight newsletter, gives a rare, behind-the-scenes look at preparing for an FOMC event. Neil shares:
- the results of his proprietary FOMC interest rate model;
- how the Fed’s forecasts will influence the Eurodollar curve; and
- the three most important parts of the FOMC statement traders should be focused on.
Neil also provides a “connect-the-dots” macro explanation of how asset classes like the dollar, fixed income, and equities are expected to move in the minutes and days that follow the release..
