Corporate Credit Spreads And Some Other Geeky Data Points
Coming into COVID-19, a chunk of client bond money was in higher yielding money markets since credit spreads (in my opinion) offered little value prior to March 2020.After the 35% correction in the S&P 500, and upon the announcement of the Fed liquidity programs, all that money was moved into corporate credit risk (a tactical bet) given the spread widening that happened.Can't recall the source, but Value is on track to outperform Growth for the month, for the first time in years. The question is, "is this sustainable or is it the proverbial dead-cat bounce?"

In Check
The great part about the election is, it's a known unknown. Markets are preparing for volatility around the event, even if the event takes months to reconcile.Wall Street is actively hedging risk in that time frame. That itself is bringing down risk surrounding the event.If you can keep your fear and greed under control, you can profit.The CNN Fear and Greed Index is back down to a reasonable 52, which is considered Neutral.

The Pre-Election Correction Continues, Is It Over?
On Friday, due to the "quad-witching options expiration" (when all options contracts for the current strike month expire and rollover), the market gave up support at the 50-dma.The markets are very oversold short term, so a tradeable "bounce" remains very likely in the next few days.While you may feel strongly about one party or the other when it comes to politics, it doesn't matter much when it comes to your money.Holding a little extra cash, increasing positioning in Treasury bonds, and adding some "value" to your portfolio will help reduce the risk of a sharp decline in the months ahead.

Weekly Commentary: Revisiting 'Coin In The Fuse Box'
Powell is struggling to reinforce flagging Federal Reserve credibility.In the 1960s, Alan Greenspan was said to have commented the Great Depression was a consequence of the Fed having repeatedly placed "Coins in the Fuse Box".Is all the hullabaloo really about consumer inflation fractionally below target? And will this be viewed as reasonable by the average American?

Dollar And Treasuries Call Federal Reserve Bluff
The US Fed offered its latest iteration of low policy rates for longer, and longer, and longer with a promise that it would not hike for (at least) another three years in its effort to manufacture price inflation above 2%.As we've already seen in places like Japan and Europe, keeping policy interest rates near zero does not manufacture inflation when, after 40 years of slashing rates and increasing debt, the masses are already cash-strapped, debt-choked and aging.As the Fed talked its inflation-targeting talk on Wednesday, currency markets didn't buy the pitch. The US dollar continued to strengthen, with risk markets predictably falling once more.

September Fed Meeting: The (Long) Wait For 2% Inflation Begins
The Fed has pinned liftoff to an economic outcome, namely that inflation must hit its 2% objective and be expected to exceed it for some time.13 out of the 17 Federal Open Market Committee participants penciled the Federal Funds rate to remain at the zero bound through the end of 2023 under their baseline outlook.In our most bullish scenario for the economy, we see rate hikes as being possible in late 2022. However, our central tendency is similar to the Fed's, with it being much more likely that the central bank remains on hold through 2023 before inflationary pressures start showing an overshoot.
