Yeah, no shit.

Anybody who’s actually listened to Powell speak would know rates aren’t coming down til late 2024 and yet the fed futures market keeps pricing in cuts in 2023…

So, is the Fed allowed to bring employment down as collateral to their decisions ?


Coolzx t1_je92fkx wrote

Yes, to a point if it means bring inflation down. Since inflation is their main concern.


Decent-Berry4681 t1_je8grtc wrote

Your 100% right and whats scary is the only way rate cuts will happen is due to a recession/economic slowdown. Therefore the market is pricing in a recession because they expect rate cuts….markets make great sense!


recession_is_coming t1_je8m03v wrote

> Therefore the market is pricing in a recession because they expect rate cuts

And the markets are not going down because a recession is being priced in?

Have we finally achieved a bullish recession?



Wander21 t1_je9157z wrote

Better yet market will down significantly before recession so basically we are rallying for a crash yohooooooooo

bond market's pricing in a recession. Stock market doesn't care until CEOs start saying recessions are coming in their earnings call. Bond market and stock market don't always agree.

DerpyMcOptions t1_jefjqzs wrote

Big $ has ways to make markets pump in order to offload before the unwind begins.

Remember BLK is one of the biggest dealers in UST's, they're trying to sell T bills for cash so they can use their discount to buy the call options off of ppl they sell the T bills to.

BLK has a vested interest in yelling that rates should go higher until the fed has to capitulate on rate caused problems. At which time they're holding all those calls... BLK was shorting T bills through puts, don't think they won't also buy calls on them as well.

If the market crashes and unemployment jumps, the fed will drop rates.

Whats funny is that institutions are signalling this, the bond market is signalling this, but the stock market is still going "lol nah, we good"


PrettyDislikeMachine t1_je9xj2m wrote

Inflation adjusted, the market is down 20% YoY. I'd say that's pricing-in a mild recession.


DontWantToUseYourApp t1_je8c9g1 wrote

Because the recession is going to force them to cut sooner. Either way, both outcomes are bearish.


RedditsFullofShit t1_jearrlg wrote

No see this is a buy the rumor sell the news situation.

You buy now until they cut. When they do, you sell cuz it means the crash is on its way or they wouldn’t be cutting

But stocks go down prior to a recession and we aren't going down. So no recession.


Themailhag t1_je8ej19 wrote

Thats because the fed isnt usually stupid enough to turn the printers back on for a weekend, only to continue tightening. Basically they wanted to break the middle class and they broke the banks instead. Or more likely found another way to steal from us along the way. End result, were green right now only because of the cash injection

Powell also said that inflation is transitory and that the fed wouldn't hike rates until 2023, but he broke that promise and caused SVB to fail as a result. He has said he will make decisions based on the data that comes in, but right not they're targeting maintaining rates until 2024.

If there are more signs of inflation declining and/or unemployment increasing, rates can absolutely come down


Christianman01 t1_je9jay5 wrote

Maybe he's lying to the benefit of himself and his rich friends, and people are pricing that in. I mean he knew QE would cause inflation but lied through his teeth about that.

You've reversed cause and effect, like many others on this sub. Interest rates drop because of monetary policies enacted to counter a recession. Not that a recession happens because interest rates drop.

not the same. One means stocks will drop before they cut rate, the other means it will drop after they cut rate.

Low interest rates only helps people and corporations spend money that they don’t have.

Growth should come organically and not be fuelled by debt.

Interest rates should remain high even if inflation subsides.

The Fed will cut rates only when they realize they have done too much. How will this be good for the stock market?


H0lland0ats t1_je8gyfh wrote

This will come as a big surprise to you but the Feds mandate isn't "pump the stock market with cheap debt so WSB user TedMerTed can get free money".

The Feds only real job is manage inflation and employment from a macroeconomic level. Everything else should be coming from congress.

The vast majority of the "growth" the past decade has been finacialization. Companies have borrowed like never before in history to buy back shares, and take advantage of QE to its max. Very few companies are truly innovating and the ones that are, are doing it so incredibly inefficiently.

Bring back the evolutionary pressure of high rates. Last time they actually started making decent American cars again!

I don't know for a fact, but i suspect this is why IPOs often take a massive shit shortly after. Seed/angels are like the shoddy house flippers of the so called innovation world. This is why the GameStop thing got the police baton so quickly. They don't want it a lot of visibility on the extent to which human civilization is a pump and dump scheme

I once had the opportunity to meet a bunch of actual angel investors. They obviously weren't unintelligent, but they seemed like dunces. They barely, barely cared about the actual pitches. They cared about "we are a blabla bullshit buzzword company, here is an financial modeling excel template up & right." It was fucking eye opening.

Isn't a terminal rate of 5.5% peanuts compared to what it's been historically the last 50 years? I see this as a stabalizing rate, no more free money circulating and should weed out non-robust businesses.


SteveG199 t1_je8x8ya wrote

Furthermore, Interest rates should just be negotiated by markets. But now humans are back on the wheel. And you can't complain they turn that weel to steer away from the saw that would saw off their own branch. The things take the turn any fiat system in history took and you can't blame anybody in charge for not doing the right thing, because that would mean a ruined career. Anybody who does that on stages like this is just instantly replaced by somebody pretending again that they did nothing wrong and people return to standing ovations. The US constitution basically had it right but the system found it's way around it and now you pay. Inb4 murica im from europe

This also would be admitting that we're hitting recession scenarios while at the same time inflation is mooning. This would be close to a worst possible scenario.


SpaceTabs t1_je8fi05 wrote

Why on earth would anyone think rates are going down? This has been a freebie for the fed. Normally it would have taken five years to inch back up to normal rates.

If the speed limit is lowered on a road in your area, it usually doesn't go back up again.

Also worth nothing the bond market was previously pricing in aggressive hikes well before the fed woke up to their idiocy.

The market will be correct again….

Recession is imminent, most inflation is moderating quickly and rate cuts are coming….

Absolutely everyone had spent like drunken sailors during the low interest rate years. We're beginning to see the initial problems forming from interest rate changes. Since the Fed has no clue with what's going on, they'll follow the growing panic by dropping rates. The market has this correct.
