    A June Hike is Well Priced in, Balance Sheet Redux Coming Soon

    By David Ader 26 May 2017

    In the week just passed the bond market gotten a respite from the ongoing tumult between the Trump Administration and, well, just about everyone else. It was a diplomatic trip for the President and a vacation for the rest of us. Call it a hiatus until his budget proposals are reworked, and in all likelihood dramatically so, and the investigations get underway. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    Fed Gets a bit Stubborn Plus a Teaser to Demographic Work

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 05 May 2017

    In the week just passed most Treasury yields rose a bit with the curve flattening in the process. It’s really a tale of two curves; the front part vs. the back end. The front end dealt with an FOMC statement that didn’t offer any serious surprises but did affirm that a June hike was on the proverbial table. The back end, specifically 30s, outperformed for different reasons.

    A Relief Rally Correction, Budget Handicaps Conviction

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 28 Apr 2017

    In the week just passed the bond market gave back some of the gains from its relief rally that essentially came with the French election results a week ago and relative easing of the mood over geopolitics. This is presumably a pause in the grand scheme of things on both accounts and not a definitive “phew” that shoots US interest rates on a particularly bearish schematic. At least not yet.

    Ader's Musings - A Time for Every Purpose

    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.

    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.
