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.

By Ryan Nauman 05 Jun 2017

Read the market review for Q1 2017, showing resiliency in U.S. markets through uncertain times. U.S. equity markets continued to hit record highs during the quarter (S&P 500 +6.07%) as investors pin their hopes on reduced taxes and regulation and an increase in infrastructure spending. The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates based on an improved outlook for the economy and inflation, while soft data continues to paint a rosy picture.

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 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.

Inflation - Risks and Opportunities

By Ryan Nauman 21 Apr 2017

The consensus among economists is that inflation will increase to north of two percent in 2017, which would mark the first time since prior to the Credit Crisis that we’ve experienced consecutive years of inflation above two percent. We examine how financial professionals can use different asset classes to help position client portfolios to guard against inflation as well as contribute to total returns. We also list some of the top performing strategies from the PSN Global Manager Neighborhood database for each asset class during years of inflation over two percent.

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.
