Fed Cuts Rates For 3rd Time This Year. Why So Quickly?

Currency wars and Beggar Thy Neighbor as the US tries to prevent the Dollar from continuing to rally relative to other fiat currencies as evidenced on the Dollar Index and the Trade Weighted Dollar Index. The Fed’s official balance sheet has now increased by $259.877 billion dollars in only 2 months since the end of August 2019! Repo Madness must be causing this as the Fed’s “Not QE” program is only supposed to buy $60 billion dollars per month in US Treasuries.

The Fed’s official balance sheet increased by $51.877 billion dollars in only 1 week!

If that pace continues, the Fed’s balance sheet would increase by another $2.698 trillion dollars in only 12 months from now!
