As U.S. regulators are trying to clinch a sale of First Republic Bank over the weekend, the prevailing expectation is that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates by 0.25% on Wednesday, adding to an already elevated 5%. A steeper hike might stifle the markets, but a lack of action could also be construed as the Fed’s concern over potential banking issues. In either scenario, the persistently inverted Treasury yield curve may signal an eventual market correction.
