Quite a few elites like Klaus Schwab of The World Financial Discussion board (and Davos fame) are calling for a “Nice Reset” in international economies. However maybe “The Nice Reset” in going down in asset markets … and never in a great way.
Contemplate what has occurred since President Biden was elected. The S&P 500 complete return index (inexperienced index) has risen because of The Federal Reserve’s steadiness sheet enlargement (orange line) with COVID. Till 2022 when the expectation of Fed charge hikes surged from 3 in late December 2021 to 9.4 anticipated charge hikes over the following 12 months (yellow line).
The US Treasury complete return index (white line) has gotten crushed with The Fed’s alerts of charge hikes and quantitative tightening (QT). Name it “White Line Fever.” The commodity complete return index (blue line) has surged as The Fed’s anticipated charge hikes have risen from 3 to 9.4 in 2022.
Is The Fed inflicting a Nice Reset in housing? In 2022, we see the surge in Fed charge hike expectations main the 30-year mortgage charge to be practically 5%. The final Case-Shiller house value index was for January and it was nonetheless raging at 19.17% YoY progress. Let’s see if The Fed’s QT will decelerate house value progress. However house costs are rising at 4x 30-year mortgage charges.
I hope that Klaus Schwab and the worldwide elites decide us up on our means down. However most likely not.
So let’s see if The Fed nonetheless goes to withdraw its “Snake Juice” from the market.
