    -   The housing market and its impact on consumer spending
    -   Debt, deleveraging and inflation
    -   Future monetary policy actions
    

Mr. Hoogendoorn will discuss fixed income sector performances and analyze what markets could look like through the November elections and beyond. In the search for relative value, he will also address:

    
    -   Relative Q1 2010 fixed income performances

The Fed understands this infant world is stable, yet incredibly fragile, and will do whatever it takes to successfully navigate into 2011," said Mr. Hoogendoorn.
