The article discusses the recent data on M2 Money Supply released by the Federal Reserve. The author notes a year-on-year decline in the M2 Money Supply, but also a slight upward re-acceleration. The M1 money supply, which only includes money in circulation, is trending lower each month. However, M2, which includes deposits, has seen a slight reversal in the downtrend since April.
