No Twisting by the Pool for Canadian Insiders or Investors

In the wake of the prolonged 1980-82 UK recession, pop band Dire Straits released a tongue and cheek swing record Twisting by the Pool romanticizing the good life on Europe's Mediterranean coast. The song popped into my mind after reading the Federal Reserve's monetary policy statement today. For some reason, the US Federal Reserve has deemed it fit to try and flatten the yield curve by selling short-term bonds and buying bonds with maturities of over six years. While I know this was rumoured in the market for some time, based on today's late day action in the bond and equity markets I would suggest that there was some skepticism that the Fed would actually do this.
