  1. Fed will likely monetize more again in the event of any US economic slowdown from “trade wars”.

    That’s bad for bondholders and interest rates (which rise during QE – See today’s piece on H by Kevin Muir entitled “Trader: Here’s My Beef With Jamie Dimon”).

    And rising rates could get really ugly given the US debt monster, right? Tired of winning, lol.
