The next Fed move may be an interest rate cut. Interesting.

Yeah there are a lot of people betting on a cut right now, which is why yields have fallen so sharply over the last few weeks. We will see. Powell was against being so aggressive on both quantitative easing and low interest rates a few years back, it would be very surprising to see him be the one to continue back down that path. But anything could happen. Personally, I have enjoyed getting some actual noticeable interest off of money markets.
