A massive move higher in interest rates futures (lower in yield) and abnormal call option skews has created a trading opportunity.
It's a risk-off trade, but it's also a view that the political drama between President Trump and Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is ultimately going to fade.
Why we like trade?
We believe the FOMC committee will make changes to the Fed Funds Rate at a slower pace than the market anticipates. The interest rate market is pricing a 71 basis point rate cut between June 2019 and June 20. We anticipate the FED will not lower interest rates 75 basis points in the next year.
