Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading near yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
This past week, the market was all over the place with rising interest rates battling it out with strong earnings reports. The QoQ GDP data, which will be announced next Thursday at 8:30am, is the headline event that the market is awaiting to determine its next course. Today, European markets decline as the political uncertainty in the UK continues. We advise everyone to size down, and trade with caution as the market could go either direction very quickly; especially as political, geo-political, and inflation uncertainty is on the rise.
In the news, Federal Reserve President Patrick Harker said additional interest rate increases will be required given the lack of success in reducing inflation. “We are going to keep raising rates for a while,” Harker said, “Given our frankly disappointing lack of progress on curtailing inflation, I expect we will be well above 4% by the end of the year.” adding a stop to rate hikes will most likely be next year while the current monetary policy makes its way through the economy, “Sometime next year, we are going to stop hiking rates. At that point, I think we should hold at a restrictive rate for a while to let monetary policy do its work,” he said. “It will take a while for the higher cost of capital to work its way through the economy. After that, if we have to, we can tighten further, based on the data.”
