Inflation, as measured by the PCE, has ticked down in April.
Trimmed Mean PCE can not even hold 2 percent.
The price action in Oil will likely drag inflation down further.
This will probably create a flattening yield curve. However, I see this another way. The yield curve will be flattening as short-term rates rise to long-term rates as the Fed continues to jack rates higher. My expectation is that the long-end of the curve will likely remain in the current “range” due to falling inflation figures from the Oil run-off. The Fed’s continuation of raising rates is a positive and shows continued improvement in the US economy.
