The Fed’s new inflation regime – why real rates and the USD are the center of the financial universe.

With the Fed embarking on a new regime of pro-actively driving inflation expectations higher we naturally question their commitment and credibility – however, if the Fed is truly going to drive inflation significantly higher it will hold incredible implications for the USD, commodities and equity markets. It also suggests that other global central banks like the ECB or RBA must keep in step or risk policy divergence, which would be a huge signal for FX traders. In this webinar, Chris breaks this developing global macro theme, what markets you should really be looking at, and how to trade it.
