March 2021

Eyes and ears have been on the Fed as the bond market still is unsure of the future of inflation, but it
was a different Fed announcement that had the market moving on Thursday. The Fed announced that
pending stress tests, the restrictions put on dividends and share buybacks will be lifted this summer. The
measures were put on banks to ensure financial security through the crisis. If banks fail to meet the capital requirements imposed by the Fed, then the restrictions will continue. Banking stocks ticked up
on the news as S&P Bank ETF KBE rose 2.8% on the announcement.
