Draghi Beat Powell Yet Again!

Yields are falling on June 18, and the dollar is rising this morning after Draghi made very dovish comments. Once again, Draghi is out in front of Powell and controlling the course of Monetary policy. The 10-year German Bund is now at -0.30. That is, of course, dragging the US 10-year lower as well. What will the Fed do now? Perhaps Powell can beat Draghi tomorrow and cut rates.
