Finally Some Fed Hawk And Bubble Talk

See Full Report
*After two big jobs numbers there wasn't much hawk talk from the Fed.
*William Dudley, NY Federal Reserve president finally had some hawkish things to say.
*Not that we believe it will happen but he said a Fed hike in September is a possibility.
*Mr. Dudley also commented on the bubble.
*We think his comments could have implications for what Fed Chair Yellen ends up saying August 26th which is much more of a market event.

We've been scouring the globe for some hawkish rate hike commentary after two big non-farm payroll numbers. The Fed's two key measures are PCE and non-farm payrolls. Non-farm payrolls blew past expectations in its recent report but there was not much of a Fed peep of an imminent rate hike. NY Fed President and vice chairman of the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee William Dudley finally chimed in with some hikish (hawkish) things to say. We think that could have implications for Janet Yellen's speech Friday August 26th.
Here's what Fox Business News reported Mr. Dudley saying.
"We are edging closer towards the point in time when it will be appropriate to raise rates further." When asked whether a September rate hike was on the table Dudley said, "Yeah, I think it is possible".
He also said as reported by Bloomberg, Fed Funds Futures estimates are "too low" and that "the market is complacent about the need for gradually snugging up short-term interest rates over the next year or so."
Mr. Dudley is saying that the Fed Funds futures are not reflecting enough rate hikes.
First here's September's expectations for a rate hike.
