Like a mirage in the desert sand, inflation is still missing in action (MIA).

Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) growth YoY remains at 1.5% for January. The PCE deflator YoY remained the same at 1.7%.


But the number of options betting on a rise in short-volatility ETF is surging.


Yes, inflation is still a mirage (at least to The Fed). That should put a lid on further rate hike/unwinding activity. Or not!
