Fears that the Federal Reserve might increase interest rates too soon have diminished.
Recently, investors have been more pessimistic about interest rate rises by the Federal Reserve to combat inflation, which has resulted in a decline in the S&P 500 this year.
When Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell admitted the prospect of a harsh landing, the market viewed this as an indication to limit the likelihood of rapid rate rises. Moderating economic indicators also helped to boost this share rise.
US bond markets “continue to price in that the end of Fed rate rises is nearer than previously thought,” an analyst at broker Oanda said. “The economy is expected to decelerate considerably by H2 2022, which is when the Fed is expected to stop raising interest rates.”
Economic data and meetings are scheduled for the next week, including one between Powell and the chiefs of the European Union and United Kingdom central banks on Wednesday. Due to PCE being the primary inflation indicator of the Federal Reserve, Thursday’s personal consumption expenditures index will also be highly scrutinized.
Deutsche Bank strategist Jim Reid stated, “Without a major event this week there are enough things to keep us entertained in what are exceedingly unpredictable times.”
Even yet, investors may want to keep an eye out for signals that things aren’t quite as awful as they first seem. According to a translation from China Global Television Network, Governor of the People’s Bank of China Yi Gang was cited as stating that the central bank would assist China’s economy recover from the Covid-19 lockdowns. Both Beijing and Shanghai said on Saturday that they will reopen schools, according to Reuters.
The stock market seems to have ignored Russia’s default on foreign debt, which was triggered by an inability to transfer payments rather than a shortage of funds.
To Tom Essaye of the Sevens Report: “Geopolitically Russia defaulted on a loan payment, but this was well predicted thus it doesn’t affect markets.
When the market is motivated to rise, it will rise.
