Money is pouring into money market funds as investors seek safety: $286bn in March, the FT reports. While that is not a massive shift relative to the size of the US banking system (it is less than 2 per cent of the $17.5tn of bank deposits) it shows that nerves remain on edge. The two-year yield is the bond market’s most sensitive barometer of Federal Reserve rate policy, and since last Wednesday — the day of the Fed’s press conference — it has fallen by almost half a percentage point, to 3.77 per cent. That’s a lot, and it’s especially a lot given that what the Fed announced on Wednesday was a 25 basis point rate increase, and that the Open Market Committee’s “dot plot,” showing each member’s future policy expectations, shows there is at least one more hike to come this year.
