Top Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

The Federal Reserve needs to cut rates immediately, says White House advisor Larry Kudlow.

He has a point, according to James Bianco, president of Bianco Research.

Ever since the 10-year/3-month spread inverted late last month, the bond market has been flashing a neon sign at the Fed to act, Bianco told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Friday.

“It’s a signal that the Fed should consider cutting rates. It’s a signal that they’re too tight with policy,” he said.

The situation might grow more troubling by the end of the second quarter because the rest of the yield curve will likely invert within those three months, he said.

“For the last 10 years, all the yield curves have been flattening and moving one after another into inversion. I don’t think that trend is going to stop, so let’s fast forward 60 or 90 days, they’re all inverted now,” said Bianco.
