Hello Everyone,

Here's a link to Tonight's Newsletter.

The Fed raised overnight rates by 0.25% as widely expected, Tomorrow's movement is more important than today's reaction

The Fed raised rates 25 basis points. They remains committed to getting inflation down to 2%. This was expected, but Wall Street was mostly looking for hints the Fed would put everything on pause and take a "wait-and-see" approach. If they stopped raising and inflation ticked up, they could always raise again. But some are starting to fear they've already gone too far. The problem is that the Fed seems noncommittal. They don't want to keep raising rates, but they might have to. They say our banking industry is sound, but after 3 giant failures in two months, can they say that with a straight face? Powell did say they are closer to the end than the beginning, but that doesn't bring clarity that the market wants.

another possible casualty after hours with  PacWest bank falling more than 50% on concerns
