Strayer Impact of Monetary Policy on the Bond Market Discussion

Watch the FOMC: Press Conference on December 14, 2016.

Please respond at least to two of the following:

  • Analyze how much monetary policy affects the bond market and determine if you are in agreement with this strategy.
  • How are monetary policy, the bond market, and inflation related?
  • Create an argument related to mortgage-backed securities (MBS) that either supports or does not support that the benefits outweigh the costs.
  • In what ways is the trading of MBS similar and different from the trading of corporate bonds?
