Real Vision editor Jack Farley and Maggie Lake welcomes Harry Melandri of MI2 Partners to discuss the day’s price action as well as address dipping consumer sentiment and the possibility of the U.S. economy slowing. Lake analyzes the contributing factors to explain why consumer sentiment may be falling, and Farley examines whether that is reflective of a slowing economy. The trio also dive into eurodollar futures, debt monetization, the trajectory of inflation, and the Fed’s response function to provide a clearer picture of future growth and the overall macro environment.
