“There is no group arguing that the Fed has gone too far. There is a broad consensus that if the data shows rising operating rates, further moves will be needed.”
“Thus far, the Fed seemingly has no bite. Normally, when the Fed has raised short-term rates, long-term yields have also risen. Not this time.”

“I think the market is in a dangerous position. It has gone a long way toward pricing out a [Fed] rate increase, and that does leave you vulnerable if data comes out pointing to inflation.”
