The recent rise in treasury yields provides the rare sight of a projected hike in the Federal Funds rate. The Jan 2012 contract prices in a Fed Funds rate of 0.50%, 32 basis points higher than today's effective funds rate of 0.18%. As recently as the start of November, no hike had been expected deep into 2012.

    "Efficient Markets" LOL

     

    I bet Wall Street economists also show 0.50% in 2012 and maybe "normal" 3% rates in 2013.

     

    In January (2010), they had 2-2.5% for December 2010. Too bad nobody checks their previous predictions.
