Thank you for trading with us and we hope you enjoy reading the November edition of our newsletter!
The US Fed delivered another jumbo rate hike of 75 bps in November and hinted to a moderation of the pace at some point, but ruled any pause and pointed to a potentially higher terminal rate than previously expected.
US Inflation slowed in October, as headline CPI came in at 7.7% y/y and the first sub-8% reading since February, while Core CPI eased to 6.3%. Market expectations around the Fed’s rate path eased in the aftermath of the CPI report, but policy makers will have the chance to look at more inflation data until their next meeting in mid-December.
The Bank of England raised rates by a historically large 75 bps to 3% - a week after the UK got its third Prime Minister of the year. However, it pushed back against market expectations for the terminal rate and laid out a very challenging outlook for the economy. It projected a prolonged recession and inflation to peak at around 11% this quarter.
In the Spotlight
The pair rebounds from the twenty-year lows, as it snapped its four month-losing streak, with a strong start to the fourth quarter. During the current month, it reclaims parity, but has recently failed to hold this level, so it will be interesting to see how it fares this time.
The tech-heavy index is sensitive to the current high interest rates environment, having erased more than 30% of its value during the first nine months of the year. The fourth quarter started with two-year lows, but the index has staged a recovery since then.
The stark policy differential between the Fed and the Bank of Japan, has fueled a massive rally in 2022, which led to 32-year highs in October. The pair however retreats from this level, with the second week of November being the worst of the year, due to soft US CPI report. It has breached significant technical levels as result, but policy differential is still unfavorable.
