  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment
  • Fed's Kashkari: - I am opposed to rate hikes at least through 2023 - The labor market is still in a deep hole; it will take some time to get people reattached to the work force
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The benefits of reducing MBS purchases first would be modest - It may take longer than September to judge progress on labor supply
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Fed funds rate should remain unchanged through 2023 - When it is time to taper, the best case scenario is to stick to the same plan as before
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Inflationary indicators have been higher than predicted, but this is expected to be temporary - Although the success against COVID is inspiring, it is still too early to declare victory

Among Top Themes, Where is the Risk Most Potent: Fed Hike, China, EM?

Among Top Themes, Where is the Risk Most Potent: Fed Hike, China, EM?

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• A few months ago, the IMF and many market participants counted a Fed hike as one of the greatest market risks

• The potential a theme/event/data has on the market is significantly shaped by market pricing and anticipation

• Where the Fed hike may have seen its leverage curbed; themes like China, Emerging Markets and GDP are untapped

Over the past two weeks, we have seen a significant adjustment to the potential of a December Fed rate hike. While that doesn't fully deflate the impact potential of this event - nor speculation surrounding the policy path ahead - it certainly does take the edge off the percieved threat. Over the past few months, a range of major players (IMF, World Bank, ECB, etc) counted a Fed hike as one of the great uncertainties that the world's markets faced. As that outcome cut risk and lifted the Dollar, market pricing moved to more fundamentally appropriate levels. Greater ambiguity and complexity is now seen in other stated dominant threats such as China's financial/economic slowdown, Emerging Market capital flows and global growth trends. We discuss the shift in influence and trade potential across themes in today's Strategy Video.
