Yield Curve to Bring Back the Fed

US yield curve chatter should return soon. Both popular measures of the US yield curve (10 year yield minus 2 year yields and 5y-3y) are nearest their zero level in over a month.  As US diffusion indices revert above the 50 level and stabilizing US-China rhetoric helps push Fed cut expectations to the 2nd half of 2020, this is the time to watch the yield curve. Why?

First, the reason the yield curve steepened (re-entered positive territory) from late August til now is the three rate cuts from the Fed -- Fed Funds rate graph (yellow) shows atop both yield curves measures.

As Fed pauses from easing, short-term yields begin to edge higher, while longer-term yields run out of steam (on renewed macro doubts) to the extent that the gap between long and short term rates shrinks gradually back towards zero. See the latest graphs of the 10-year yield and oil in today's IMT.

The rest of the chart suggests diminishing Fed easing stimulus combined with continued lack of tangible progress on the US-China trade front (if China has not agreed to any deal over the past 18 months, it will not do so anytime soon), surging uncertainty from the impeachment hearings and inevitable signs of tensions within Republicans towards their president, will all bring back Fed easing expectations as early as February-March 2020. The Fed may have succeeded in diverting attention away from rate cuts, but it will not stop a renewed return of yield curve inversion (or flattening) from market's attention.

For traders of SPY, SPX, DOW and other major indices attempt a retest of the recent highs after a rare 2-day decline. Yet the overlay between indices and that mysterious ratio remains in play.

The Surprising Power of Small Habits
Category: Growth, Habits, and Peak Performance
Description: We live in a world of competition. The margin between good and great is slimmer than ever before. Small habits can unlock the improvements you need to get the results you want.

Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits. What you repeatedly do ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the results you enjoy. It is so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making better decisions on a daily basis. The daily choices we make shape our teams, our societies, and ourselves. Change your habits and you’ll change your life.

?????? ?????? ?????????

In this popular talk, James Clear explains a simple and powerful strategy for how to stick to good habits and break bad ones. His practical framework will break down the proven science of how habits work and explain how every person can build high performance habits. After delivering this talk for the closing keynote at Stanford University for the Habit Summit, conference founder Nir Eyal declared, “His talk on building better habits, driving behavior change, and improving performance wowed the crowd of startup founders, consultants, and venture capitalists. I couldn’t be happier with my choice to bring in James to speak to our audience.”

The Surprising Power of Small Habits
?????? ???????

Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. Are you in the physical shape that you want to be in? Are you optimizing your talents at work? Is your team achieving its targets? All are a result of habits. What we repeatedly do, each and every day, ultimately forms the results we enjoy and the goals we achieve. Change your habits, change your systems, and you’ll transform your life, team and organization.
?????? ?????

James Clear explains this breakthrough approach to creating transformational change. He breaks down the science to show how change works at the most granular level and how the accumulation of just one percent improvements each day leads to massive change over time. Using inspiring examples of individuals and teams that have achieved extraordinary goals like winning the Tour de France or reinventing manufacturing processes, James shows how any goal can be achieved by adopting the right habits and systems, the right way. A transformative talk that leaves you seeing any challenge through the lens of positive and negative habits and equipped with proven strategies to achieve any goal. https://www.gold-pattern.com/en
