Take Five: Fed in a hole

On Wednesday, the US Federal Reserve releases the minutes of its last meeting, revealing what policymakers said about the flattening Treasury yield curve and the strength of support for July's quarter-point rate cut.But given what has transpired in bond and stock markets since that meeting, the more relevant headlines should spring from the Fed's annual Jackson Hole Symposium later in the week, with Chairman Jerome Powell to address the forum on Friday.Now that the long-awaited inversion of the two-year/10-year yield curve has actually happened, there is some question whether the Fed will lean harder on the easing side to re-steepen the curve and quash recessionary interpretations.The Fed looks boxed in.
