BTIG’s Krinsky says the ‘tug-of-war continues’ in the market

Jonathan Krinsky, chief market technical officer at BTIG, said the market is “still in a tug of war between economic data and what the Fed might do.”

Kreinsky noted that recent economic data has been weaker than expected “causing an attempt to buy bonds and the perception that Powell might be ‘less hawkish’ at Jackson Hole.” “That may be enough to maintain stock supply…but it is not necessarily a ‘bullish’ medium-term scenario if environmental data continues to weaken.”

The Fed’s Kashkari says his biggest concern is that inflation will be more stable or higher than expected.

His biggest concern is that markets are underestimating how high or how long inflation will last, says Neil Kashkari, president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, adding that the Fed may need to be more aggressive than expected.

Commenting on the market, he said, commenting on the market: “The big fear I have in my mind is whether we are wrong and the markets are wrong, and that this inflation is much more implied at a much higher level than we or the markets appreciate.” Expectations of inflation returning to 2% over the next two years.

“Then we will have to be more aggressive than I expect, and possibly longer, to bring inflation down again,” he said, speaking at an event at the University of Pennsylvania.

Kashkari also cited supply-side shocks that have led to “half to two-thirds” of high inflation in the country.

“The more help we get from the supply side, the less the Fed has to do, the better we are to avoid a hard landing,” he said. But, he added, there is some evidence that supply chains are starting to normalize.

Kashkari is already the most hawkish of the US central bank’s 19 policymakers, and he expects the Fed to need to raise its policy rate – now at its target range of 2.25% to 2.5% – another full two percentage points by the end of next year.

The hawkish Fed?

Many are expecting a hawkish speech from Federal Reserve officials later this week, which could lead to a massive sell-off in risky assets. Some fear continued and violent central bank tightening could push a sluggish economy into recession.

“I fully expect Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell and other Fed officials to remain hawkish,” Kristina Huber, chief global market strategist at Invesco, said in an email. “Aggressive rhetoric is very likely to cause stocks to drop globally in the near term, as markets are on eggshells, so asset owners must be prepared for short-term volatility.”
