Inflationary Impacts on the Treasury Market: A Historical Look With Blu Putnam

By NinjaTrader Team

As the discussion around a possible US recession appears to diminish, some economic factors show conflicting ideas about the US economy. How do core inflation, treasury yields, the labor market and other factors compare historically with respect to other recessions?

CME Chief Economist Blu Putnam joined us this week on “See the Futures” to discuss several key economic indicators and what they might mean for the US economy and for futures traders.

Additional topics discussed in this free livestream:

  • China’s economic and demographic challenges 

  • What not to expect from Chair Powell at Jackson Hole this week

  • The federal funds rate’s relationship to inflation

  • Chart analysis of US 10-Year Yield vs. US Nominal GDP Growth, US Treasury Yield Curve, Fed Funds Rate vs. US PCE Core Inflation
