  • The Federal Reserve’s liquidity-boosting measures place the economy on track for a 2009-style upswing, Canaccord Genuity analysts said in a Thursday note.
  • Policymakers signaled on Wednesday that the central bank would hold rates near zero through 2023 and maintained asset purchases of at least $120 billion in Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities per month.
  • The purchases spiked excess cash in the financial system, but liquidity has since fallen from its peak.
  • The excess-liquidity trend is “just like” the post-peak reversal seen “as the economy emerged from the 2009 recession,” the analysts said.
  • The Fed’s policy “reinforces our view that we are in the early stages of a new economic and market cycle,” they added.
