Meanwhile, Powell and the Fed: Inflation is transitory, we're not worried. 🧐
The Fed is apparently starting to sell some of its ETFs and corporate bonds accumulated during the stimulus ([https://www.wsj.com/articles/fed-plans-to-sell-13-7-billion-of-corporate-bonds-etfs-by-year-end-11622666400](https://www.wsj.com/articles/fed-plans-to-sell-13-7-billion-of-corporate-bonds-etfs-by-year-end-11622666400)), but when you look at the numbers you can tell that they are just trying to play the market. If I'm not mistaken, that's only about $14 Billion! At the same time, they've pumped at least $750 Billion in the markets over the last 12+ months AND they are continuing to do so!
This may be a classic case of me falling prey to confirmation bias, but literally everywhere I look, inflation is only just starting! What do you guys think?
