Following this morning's economic reports the widely expected 50 bps cut from the Fed became a little less widely expected, with the futures showing a drop from 86% to 72%. An internal poll at Morgan Stanley, however, showed the opposite, with 73% of respondents predicting only a 25 bps cut, according to an email sent to clients this afternoon.
