Treasury yields remain lower as Fed cuts rate by quarter point
Treasury yields remained lower after the Federal Reserve cut its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point to a range between 1.75% to 2.00%, as expected. The 10-year Treasury note yield slipped 5.3 basis points to 1.761%, while the 2-year note yield was down 4.9 basis points to 1.688%. Bond prices move in the opposite direction of yields. But three voters on the Federal Open Market Committee dissented against the rate cut. The majority of Fed officials anticipated no further rate cuts this year, with the minority forecasting another reduction.

FOMC cuts fed funds rate, 7 officials project one more by year end
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday trimmed its benchmark interest rate to 1.75% to 2%, with a sizable minority projecting one more rate reduction in 2019. The central bank has cut rates twice in the past two months as an insurance policy against damage from the U.S. trade war with China. The vote was 7-3. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard preferred a half-point cut. Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Kansas City Fed President Esther George dissented for the second meeting in a row, preferring no rate cut. Looking ahead, 10 senior Fed officials projected no more rate cuts this year, but seven viewed one more reduction as likely. Meanwhile, the Fed left its forecast for the economy little changed over the next several years. Notably, the central bank projected no rate cuts in 2020 and just one in both 2021 and 2022.

"From on-again, off-again tariffs, to a growing chorus concerned about a recession, a looming election and geopolitical uncertainty, this season is unlike any in recent memory." Bines said AlixPartners is telling clients to "be nimble." The ProShares Decline of the Retail Store ETF has inched up 0.1% for the year to date. The Amplify Online Retail ETF [S: ibuy] is up 26.1%. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF has gained 4.2% for the period. And the S&P 500 index is up 19.6% for the year to date.
