What I am looking at May 3, 2022
- Fed worries: 10-year Treasury touches 3% on Monday, the 3-year gets almost 3%, which is a competitive piece of paper and presumes four rate hikes of 50 basis points.
- The Federal Open Market Committee starts its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday, with a statement on its decision on interest rates slated for release at 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday. Fed chairman Jerome Powell speaks at 2:30 p.m. that afternoon.
