1/4 point, or . . . ?

Wednesday, June 28, 2006 | 10:00 PM

I simply don't know how all this 50 basis point chatter got started and pinged around Wal Street like its a likely option.

Hell, why only 50 ? Why not 100, if the economy is so damn strong?

Let's open up a thread on this: 

Does anyone think that much besides a 1/4 point is in the cards tomorrow? Major language change? And what might Mr. Market have to say about all this.

I've been "calling for" 50bp increases for 6 months (ie, that's what I'd like to see) but I certainly don't exped the fed to think as boldly as me... I think they're confused as to whether fighting apparent inflation now will require fighting deflation later. Go ahead, and flame me, but the impending real estate hard-landing in CA has serious enough implications that I think all markets (equity, interest rate and commodities) are confused as to the outcome 1 yr out. What to be long, what to be short, if your horizon extends more than 6-9 months?
