    Zero Interest Rates (ZIR) Keeping Inflation Low

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 19 Jul 2017

    Oil, as evidenced by West Texas Intermediate (WTI), has been trading in range from about $40 to $50 per barrel for two years. Yet most investors, economists and pundits continue to predict a rebound in energy prices. Despite low oil, there have been consistently huge flows into energy-based ETFs. Indeed, so far this year Commodity Energy ETFs have received new money equal to 5% of assets – despite the fact that Commodity Energy ETF prices are down 22%. In other words, even though investors have consistently been losing money, they keep on believing in higher oil prices. Read more from Charles Biderman.

    Curve Flattening Implies Market at Odds With Fed Optimism

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

    In the week just passed, the bond market’s theme was of a flattening yield curve as the Fed delivered what glibly could be called a ‘hawkish’ hike while some key economic indicators like CPI and Retail Sales fell well short of expectations. For context, 2s reached new yield highs as the Fed adhered to its projections for more hikes, i.e. the dot plot, while 10s slipped to new yield lows last seen two days after the Presidential election and filling a gap left from that day.

    June Monthly Interest Rate Outlook

    By David Ader 05 Jun 2017

    When it comes to rate hikes, Chief Macro Strategist David Ader believes the Federal Reserve has made the switch from being data-dependent to forecast-dependent, and looks set to pull the trigger again this month. And market expectations, which are running close to 100% for another 0.25% increase, are supported by seasonal patterns. Read more from Informa Global Markets by clicking the button below.

    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.

    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.
