The release of the FOMC’S December meeting minutes has allowed the OIS strip to steepen, with just under ~20bp of tightening now priced for central bank’s March meeting. Further out the strip, ~80bp of tightening is now priced come the end of the Fed’s December meeting, 8bp more than was priced as of Tuesday’s close, with ~17bp of extra tightening priced over that horizon when compared to the 24 December close.

  • Outside of the potential for a brisker pace of rate hikes, the potential for swifter, more aggressive balance sheet normalisation has also become more apparent.
