Fed Fever and Crashing Crude in the Ides of March — MM #137

  1. Fed fever: The NFP cemented the rate hike but the US dollar dropped. What happened? Moving forward, can we expect a hawkish hike or a dovish one? How many hikes will we see in 2017? We tackle these questions and try to provide some answers.
  2. Crude Crash: Oil prices tumbled down quite rapidly. It seems that barrels of oil were sitting on a barrel of explosives and the match finally came to burn them. We analyze the supply/demand balance as well as expectations and prices moving forward.
  3. Preview: Apart from the big Fed meeting, we have three more rate decisions, elections in the Netherlands and more.
