QUESTION: Marty, I could not help but notice that the array you posted on the Fed also has high volatility at the end of the month and another target the week of March 23. Is this also reflecting the repo crisis against at the end of the quarter?
Thank you for Socrates.
ANSWER: Yes. We will most likely come to another credit crunch at the end of the quarter. This time we have a confrontation between real interest rates, which are rising due to credit risks that is part of the Repo Crisis, and the artificial lowering of rates under Keynesian economics to stimulate demand irrespective of credit risk. We are facing a true clash of the free market v the fake market.
