    Holding Pattern to FOMC

    14 Sep 2018

    I have to again say, out of frustration, that I don’t understand how the people can ignore the real wage components to the current narrative in light of recent CPI and AHE figures. I don’t have any doubt that this will NOT discourage the Fed from hiking, but I don’t understand how so many people and the press are willing to ignore the real component to income gains. I suppose the news is simply so good everywhere else that this particular aspect seems the anomaly, but not enough for me to avoid bringing it up again and again. In any event, with the release of August CPI at least the real Average Hourly Earnings YoY gain is in positive territory albeit a pretty lame gain of 0.2%.

    Ader’s Musings, 2.9% - 2.9% = 0

    07 Sep 2018

    We’re about to hit the 10th anniversary of Lehman’s demise which I suspect will be the subject of some dubious nostalgia. Bear in mind, that the economy and markets were well under pressure long before this benchmark event -- the S&P 500 had peaked a year earlier. (For context, I rebased the S&P 500 to 100 at the peak and the day before Lehman’s demise it was just under 80 on its way to 43.6 in March. Today it stands at 185.) Let me go over my perspective of what’s changed with an eye to new, or renewed risks, suggesting that history can repeat itself. Read more from David Ader's latest musings...

    Countervailing Forces Keeping Rates in Range

    31 Aug 2018

    I’m not sure what one really can make of the last week of summer, though I’m inclined to put emphasis on the calendar more than the surrounding inputs I think. We have, for instance, the aftershocks of a Jackson Hole meeting and set of FOMC Minutes that while largely touted as dovish, wasn’t so dovish for the market as to stop Dec Fed Funds from hitting a new, albeit marginal, high at 2.23+% putting odds of a hike that month at near 65%.

    Much Ado About FOMC Minutes

    24 Aug 2018

    One should hardly be surprised by Trump’s admonitions of the Fed, specifically his pick for Chairman, given his tendencies towards people who don’t do exactly what he wants. I’m not sure what Trump’s issue is given the generic state of the stock market and economy overall. If he were a thinking man on the topic, surely, he’d be satisfied with the tax and spending plans he has at his back and wouldn’t quibble about the Fed hiking.

    A lot of Noise, not so Much Action

    17 Aug 2018

    It is rare, I admit, for me to find the silver lining in a given cloud, but I managed to in the recent week.  Perhaps I was inspired in this search by the approaching 10th anniversary of the Lehman bankruptcy and the differences and similarities between now and then but I’ll save those thoughts for now.  In any event, the silver lining I refer to comes in the form of household debt.  The Quarterly Report on Household Debt & Credit from the New York Fed showed a relatively modest rise in overall debt to $13.3 trillion, a gain of $82 billion.  I suppose that is the ‘bad’ news if you consider debt a bad thing for households.

    It's all Good… in Nominal Terms

    10 Aug 2018

    In a recent speech, NY Fed President Williams spoke about “The Future Fortunes of R-star; Are they really rising?” I took a look at the graph of the estimate for the Natural Rate of Interest to see what’s going on with this particular measure. In a 2015 paper, Williams wrote that IF the estimated rate stayed low, “future episodes of hitting zero lower bound are likely to be frequent and long lasting.” In 2017, he looked at the details to conclude that a low R-star was 1) not a US story alone, but a global one, 2) it was likely to be long lasting and) it was not confined merely to low risk assets. As such, unusual monetary policies were likely to be the norm and that with globally low interest rates risks to financial stability are greater than they were.
