I have been largely of out of commission in the last several weeks, but there was plenty of good honest blogging done elsewhere aimed at the events in the pictures above, on the FOMC minutes (at the Big Picture -- here and here, from Mark Thoma, in the Nattering Naybob Chronicles, at The Prudent Investor, from William Polley), on the CPI report (by Mike Bryan here at macroblog, by Barry Ritholtz, from The Capital Spectator, at Economist's View, from The Nattering Naybob, at The Skeptical Speculator), on Fedspeaking from Fed speakers (from Mark Thoma), on the bad-but-probably-not-bad January durable goods report (at Econbrowser, from Mr. Naybob again, from The Skeptical Speculator).
Meanwhile the yield-curve-inversion watch goes on. (Ten-year yield at close today: 4.59%.)
