On today’s episode, NLW turns back to the macro, where some amount of optimism had seeped into risk assets since a better-than-expected inflation report a few weeks ago. On Monday, a group of Federal Reserve officials were trotted out to make the point to markets they might once again be getting ahead of themselves with expectations of any sort of soon-to-be Fed pivot.
