The Fed whisperer


BY L I S A A B RA MOWI C Z

THERE’S nothing quite like a juicy


bond-market conspiracy theory.
The latest one making the rounds, cour-
tesy of conspiratorially minded traders, is
that a small clutch of investors is trying to
signal to the US Federal Reserve (Fed) that
it’s just fine to raise benchmark US interest
rates at its March meeting.
This hypothesis was ginned up to explain
some sudden hard-to-understand activity
in interest-rate derivatives on Monday that
stemmed from little news. In the span of
a few hours, futures traders substantially
boosted the market-implied probability of
a March rate hike, from a 40% likelihood to
50%. As Edward Bolingbroke of Bloomberg
News pointed out, trading in the contracts
was chunky and elevated.
Some attributed the move to remarks
by Dallas Fed president Robert Kaplan,
who reiterated his view that policymak-
ers should raise rates “sooner rather than
later,” but that explanation struck many as
relatively weak.
Enter the conspiracy theory. There’s a
growing feeling that the Fed will only raise
rates if debt traders are fully pricing it in. History seems to support this impres- would have to guide the market toward a tighten monetary policies but doesn’t want

just outside Kyoto, and you will find the
blooms to be a few days behind those in
the lower-altitude city centre.
Luckily, there is a website that tracks
each destination’s progress, based on
crowdsourced-daily reports through the
spring. And once you are on the ground
in Japan, nightly news broadcasts will cite
local spots at which viewing is starting
to peak. The only issue: You will have to
plan your trip well before those updates 01 02
are made available.
Avoiding the crowds
“These days, cherry blossom season is a
zoo in Kyoto,” said Trimble. “There are
tour buses everywhere, traffic jams and
crowds everywhere. In my mind, it de-
tracts from the experience of being in
Kyoto.” But sometimes Kyoto is unavoid-
able. Trimble and Clarkson both consid-
er it a must-see for first-timers to Japan.
If you find yourself among the crowds,
pick only two or (maybe) three of the
main temples to visit: a combination of
Kinkaku-ji, Ginkaku-ji, Ryoan-ji, Sanju-
sangendo and Kiyomizu-dera. “Those
will be beyond jammed,” Trimble ad-
vised, but they are iconic and well worth
seeing.
Then head to Kyoto’s lesser-visited
treasures. Just west of the city are the
bamboo-filled mountainsides of Ar-
ashiyama, where naturally occurring
cherry trees rather than meticulously
pruned, cultivated specimens — dot the
countryside. Then there is Nijo Castle,
where a type of cascading cherry blos-
som—think pink wisteria — can be seen
along the grounds of a sprawling, Edo-
era complex. And there are more than
1,000 temples in the city itself. “Pick
one at random,” suggested Trimble, and
you have 95% chance of seeing beauti-
ful cherry blossoms against a stunning 03
