Something of a return to the good old days in the last 24 hours, when an infolding economic calendar and rhetoric from Fed officials counted for more than what the leader of the free world had to say. So it was that New York Fed president Bill Dudley – considered to be one three most important Fed officials after Janet Yellen and Stanley Fisher – electrified markets first thing yesterday with his comments that the case for Fed tightening had become “a lot more compelling in recent months” and that “…the risks to the outlook are now starting to tilt to the upside”. These came hot on the heels of remarks from San Francisco Fed president John Williams that he saw a March hike getting “serious consideration”. The net effect was to see market-implied probabilities for a March rate hike shift from near 50% at the start of the week to more like 80% now.
