The Clock is Ticking on U.S. Budget Deal and Fed Tapering

What does it Mean for Your Credit Portfolio?

In this webinar, Ryan Sweet, Moody’s Analytics Senior Director of Economic Research and co-presenter on the “Inside Economics” podcast, will provide actionable insights to help you better manage your credit portfolio during this uncertain time.

The U.S. bond market is showing angst about the debt ceiling. While the debt ceiling will likely be raised, there is a history of waiting until the last minute.


Getting to that deal may be a nasty battle that couldn’t come at a worst time now that the U.S. economy is beginning to moderate, there is another wave of COVID-19 cases, and the Federal Reserve is telegraphing that it will likely begin tapering its monthly asset purchases later this year.


It’s all about timing. When will Congress get to a deal? When and how fast will the Fed begin its taper? And how does the Delta variant play a role in all of this?


In this webinar, Ryan Sweet, Moody’s Analytics Senior Director of Economic Research and co-presenter on the “Inside Economics” podcast, will provide actionable insights to help you better manage your credit portfolio during this uncertain time:

  • U.S. bond market risks given different scenarios of a budget deal
  • Impact of timing and pace of Fed tapering on inflation and interest rates
