The current American economy looks fairly bearish; medium-term growth and inflation and short-term growth are all negative. We believe the Fed will likely intervene soon by lowering rates, which is why we favor a steepening yield curve. Medium-term growth has been very steadily negative as of late, with negative reads every day of the last month.
Short-term growth has been fairly steady as of late, with negative reads on most days of the last month.
