The Daily Shot Brief – November 4th, 2021



United States: The Federal Reserve will start tapering securities purchases this month. The initial reductions will be $10 billion in Treasuries and $5 billion in MBS per month, targeting completion for next June. The central bank left itself the option to adjust the pace of tapering.

The central bank still sees inflation as transitory. However, there was a subtle change in the language from “largely reflecting transitory factors” to “reflecting factors that are  expected to be transitory.”

Will we see liftoff right after tapering is complete?
