FOMC: An Early Trick? Or a Treat for Traders?

By Direxion

The U.S. Treasury yield curve, as measured by the difference between the 2-year and 10-year bonds inverted at the end of August only to steepen sharply at the beginning of September before collapsing post the FOMC meeting and is re-steepening again as economic data has shown signs of weakness across both manufacturing and services. Just as trick-or-treaters seek out the house offering full size candy bars and avoid the one offering raisins, traders may want to consider the possibility for the October meeting to be either a trick or a treat as the potential for both positive and negative outcomes has increased.
