    Ader's Musings - A Time for Every Purpose

    By David Ader 13 Apr 2017

    In the week just passed, longer-end Treasury yields fell to lows not seen since November 18 while short-end yields meandered providing a flatter yield curve.

    Why is this Hiking Cycle Different from all Other Hiking Cycles?

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 07 Apr 2017

    Let me start with the reality that the FOMC minutes for the March meeting didn’t do much to stir the markets. Based on the various economic reviews of those minutes, that was the appropriate response: we didn’t learn a lot that we hadn’t heard before in various forms of Fedspeak.

    Monthly Interest Rate Outlook April 2017

    By David Ader and Cameron Brandt 31 Mar 2017

    The global interest rate tide is clearly turning. Of the major developed and emerging markets that IGM tracks, only one developed (Norway) and four emerging (Russia, Brazil, Chile and Korea) are currently projected to cut rates even further. The question now occupying investors, our analysts and the market is the timing and degree of tightening cycles.

    If We're All Downsizing, Who is Upsizing?

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 31 Mar 2017

    Before I go into my more macro thinking, I’ll start with a simple 10-yr U.S. Treasury yield bar chart with, highlighted in rose, a very defined sideways channel whose broad parameters are 2.31+ to 2.63+%. Having been bullishly biased, the near-term charts look a bit more bearish with momentum shifting to higher yields. I’m not that bearish, but it’s a range and we got near the upper reaches.

    DC Stumbles Hint That Markets’ Election Euphoria has run its Course

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 24 Mar 2017

    In the week just passed, the drama of economic data had its intermission with the data frontage subdued and most of that decidedly second tier in nature. The focus of the interest-rate community shifted to somewhat softer (though potentially far more critical) inputs on the political front and as a result found new impetus to sustain technical gains that were otherwise underway.

    The Clouds to the Fed’s Silver Lining

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 16 Mar 2017

    Let me skip over the most obvious event of the week just passed which is the ‘dovish’ Fed rate hike. I say dovish not because it’s news but because the analytical emphasis is on the subdued nature of the statement and various forms of projections (which were little changed).

    A Bond Guy Takes Another Look at Stocks

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 03 Mar 2017

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a column “A Bond Guy Looks At Stocks” with a decidedly bearish spin. That was about 60-odd Dow points ago. In the spirit of doubling down I offer a bit more to the very macro concerns expressed in that missive with higher-frequency inputs.

    Fed Ups The Ante: Have Things Really Improved This Much?

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 03 Mar 2017

    Driven by data and the latest runes from the U.S. Fed, opinions are changing regarding the timing of the next U.S. interest rate move (sooner rather than later is now the thing, with March as forerunner). Yesterday’s more statesman-like address to Congress by President Trump further engendered the positive narrative as evidenced by market reaction.
