Another day, another bit of madness. Jerry Maguire said “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” and the Fed delivered. We’re in 2020 and instead of the Repo Crisis being resolved, it’s worse. The trade deal won’t even be revealed to the public…what?! But don’t worry because stocks go up every single day, boosted up right in the morning thanks to those Fed easy money Repos. Doesn’t anyone see an issue with all of this? Or is this simply just head in the sand time?
We’ve been watching the Repo Crisis unfold. Months into it, we’re still seeing the struggle of this frail and fragile financial system. They still haven’t been able to actually fix the underlying issues but have mentioned on several occasions that they are considering options. Now, there is a rising possibility that the Fed will change its process to extend money directly to hedge funds. You know, the high risk, leveraged institutions that could pop or drop at any minute? Yea, those ones. This is going to be wild.
