Did Fed act too late?

You know my thoughts. The Fed had a great chance last summer to apply the brakes, they chose not to. Now they will have to tighten and raise ffr into a slowing global economy and rising inflationary pressures - no fun

So the Fed didn't raise rates when they needed to and they're not going to in the future either?

Market expectations for a 75bps hike were eased, is pretty much it. Instead of 50 then 75 then 50 -- looks like 50 - 50 - 50 - etc. We likely still end up in the same place. FFR pf 2.25-2.5% by year end? The real kicker is they start selling assets soon, first slowly then gradually increasing, including MBS - so it will be interesting to see how markets react to this - equities and bonds
