The ECB . . . .stumbling through the dark since 1998. The most slow, slow-motion disaster of all time!!!!

Can the US keep chugging (also slowly, but at least we're moving)???

There will likely be an increase in the Fed rate tomorrow.

Apparently mortgage rates have already increased half a percentage point since October, due to flight from U.S. treasury bonds.

Does anyone know what would have initiated this flight, since it appears to have begun prior to the election?

My guess is the Peter Schiff/ZeroHedge/[insert flavor of the week inflationista here] acolytes saw an upward trend in CPI and PCE and proceeded to shit their pants, because hyperinflation and a debt meltdown are always right around the corner!!!

There's speculation that President Trump's fiscal stimulus could trigger inflation and stoke a rise in interest rates.

Any thoughts on how much inflation to expect and how high interest rates could increase in the near future?

Highly dependent on what his stimulus end up looking like, I'd say. If it's 75% tax breaks I wouldn't expect much unless it's just absolutely huge and cuts well beyond infrastructure.

If it's direct payment infrastructure spending, then yea, I'd say inflation picking up is absolutely a possibility, although I have no real way of speculating by how much.

Obviously there is also the real possibility of Trump policy affecting energy prices or prices on imported goods, which is kinda an unpredictable variable.
