Have US Treasury yields finally peaked? 🧵 1/x

They may have, but there are still significant risks. The market has been driving yields lower by pricing in a Fed pivot, NOT recession. First, why is the market pricing in a Fed pivot? 2/x
Last week there was a miss in the CPI inflation reading. Headline CPI fell from 8.2% to 7.7% and Core CPI fell from 6.6% to 6.3%. The market interpreted this as further evidence that Dec will be the Fed's last rate hike and a pause/pivot is near, allowing for a soft landing 3/x ImageImage

Updated Inflation, rates outlook & prospects for #bonds and #stocks:

We're moving into a new phase of disinflation from here. This is what I expect to see unfold: Update 🧵:

#macro $SPY $QQQ #inflation
Back in early August I wrote that we were about to experience a surge in core inflation into end Q3.

At the time #stocks had rallied strongly and this presaged another pullback given it meant the #Fed had to be more hawkish.

I was a touch early w/ mths:
This played out and I've posted my multi-factor inflation model for US CPI previously. It shows #inflation moderating quickly in mid 2023:

Fair to say this generates skepticism. The narrative is once CPI >5% it stays there for > 2 years. Well where to now? Image

THREAD: A picture is worth a thousand words. Let's look at a few of the globe's largest #ETF's & their graphs & see if we can make some sense of the current market environment.

What a year it's been for #Oil & #Energy! Only positive YTD #MSCI #Sector.


#Global #CleanEnergy #ETF relative to Global #Energy shows an interesting picture.


#EmergingMarkets #ETF seriously lagging #DevelopedMarkets ETF, mostly due to disinvestment from #China.

#SouthAfrica might be down over 1YR, but $EZA performance in USD (-15.9%) is still way ahead of both $URTH (DM -22.2%) & $EEM (EM -28.9%) over the same period.

FT opinion article: “The energy crisis gives the US a chance to woo big European companies”. If cheap natural gas can’t come to Europe, Europe will have to go the cheap natural gas. Thread #markets #equities #bonds #energy #ESG…
1/According to the author European heavy industry has endured a grim few months. Although the fuel crisis appears to be easing and companies invest in green energy/efficiency some are also rethinking their geographic footprint.
2/The US now has an opportunity to woo European multinationals, with energy costs clearly playing a role in new investments. US has an advantage over Europe because natural gas supplies are local, reliable and consistently cheaper.

🧵 Is the American Dream dead? - a tweetstorm

This is a brain dump of .@RaoulGMI's 30+ years of knowledge, how the world works, and how his macro framework fits into it all ⤵️
1/ There's no denying that we're in a mess!

By the Law of Unintended Consequences, every time we try to fix A, we create problems B, C, D, E, etc.

We hardly understand these new problems unless there's hindsight to connect the dots...

So, how the hell did we get here?

Let's start by looking at the peak of the #British Empire:

It was the world's largest realm. But as with every empire, trying to control so many people across the globe has its price & #debt weakened its structure...

Kto liczy na poważniejszy rajd na rynkach akcji, powinien z uwagą obserwować rentowności obligacji #bonds #yield rządowych, zwłaszcza amerykańskich. Przy czym najczulsze na zmiany powinny być te o dłuższej zapadalności (10 i więcej lat) /1 ImageImageImage
Od paru miesięcy rentowność obligacji jest w centrum zainteresowania Dużych. Z tego obszaru płyną kiepskie sygnały: oprócz słynnych już problemów GB z "małym budżetem" w którym dziurę miała wypełnić emisja obligacji, także Niemcy mieli niedawno problem: próbowali /2
wrócić na rynek z 7 letnimi Bundami. Okazało się, że znaleźli nabywców na zaledwie ok. połowę emisji. W USA Sekretarz Skarbu, Jannet Yellen zaapelowała do banków, by "dostarczyły trochę płynności" rynkowi Treasuries (czytaj: kupowały więcej obligacji). Czyli sprawa zaczyna /3

PART 2 of 2 - Bond crash implications for stocks:

Why does the #bonds crash signal further pressure for #stocks?
(& why do rate hikes take so long to show in earnings?)

Here I deal with general corporates, consumer & the banks:
$SPY $QQQ #macro

As cost of capital rises, the direct impact on corporate earnings starts small then builds. The direct impact of higher rates on corporate borrowings can be estimated to be only approx -2-3% on EPS extra each year due to termed out debt at past low rates. But
about 20% of debt gets refi’d each yr so this builds to a more material headwind over 12-24 mths.


Working capital terms start to get tightened by companies as rates rise. Due to WC debt costs (mainly floating rates), companies are forced to offer

Why does the #bonds crash signal further pressure for #stocks?
(& why do rate hikes take so long to show in earnings?)

High inflation & rate hikes transmit through the economy with a range of 1st to 3rd order effects with varying lags. Lets map those out:

PART 1 of 2 threads:
This is complicated to map given various dynamics, sectors & lags, particularly with 280 char limits! But lets give it a go anyway. This is descriptive to help you think through aspects & trades you may not have yet considered

Theres 2 PARTS to this thread due to length
Direct impacts:

When rates are hiked in response to #CPI, theres 2 1st order effects that are fairly contemporaneous. First #bond prices fall as they are the direct inverse of their rate. Higher Fed Funds, higher rates across the curve, lower bond prices

#Duration works both ways!
#Austria's '100-year' bond, maturing in 2120, with a duration of 46 years, is down a whopping 72% since late 2020 when global yields bottomed.
short thread 1/9
This also answers the many questions about why the value of (UK) #liability-driven investment funds, used by pension funds to match the #duration of their #liabilities, has plummeted. 2/9
Theoretically, since pension fund #liabilities and #assets both drop when #yields rise - it is not called liability matching for nothing - there shouldn't be a problem, right? 3/9

#PCE #Core #Inflation keeps rising.

Main indicator for the #FederalReserve when judging whether or not to continue raising #interestrates.

#Powell was quite clear in his speeches that they will continue raising "into pain" as long as price stability is not achieved.

By "into pain", they are primarily referring to their dual mandate of price stability (#inflation) and maximum #Employment.

But there is not much pain showing up in the job market.

Last weekly jobless claims hit a 5-month low.…
So to summarize, #TheFed has 2 jobs:
1. Reduce #inflation (not done)
2. Maximize #employment (done)

And they've been adamant about raising #rates until 1. is done, even at temporary setbacks to 2.

Unless they plan on pulling a #BoE, anything short of #75bps/#100bps is hopium.

Thanks to @GeoffCutmore & @cnbcKaren for this morning's chat on #SquawkBox.

I did TRY to find something positive to say - honest, folks!

Following are the notes I sent the team before the show:-
Ok. So here goes...

Something I've mentioned on here: the enormous scale of Europe's energy problem runs into the €trillions. The #AmpelDesGrauens "Doppel-Wums" -'bazooka' - relief package is €200bln & doubts are *already* being voiced whether will suffice.

Did someone warn you of the current #inflation, #recession, and #bearmarket in equities? Did you get out or reallocate in time? Breaking even? Maybe even profit?
Did you pay a subscription for those warnings late last year?
I started warning friends about it in 2016.

Read on🧵
When I said that I was warning my friends about it in 2016, I did so because it was clear that #Trump would not be a good president for the US & world #economy long-term, and would increase the odds of #inflation and rising #interestrates.

Late 2016 DMs in Norwegian to a friend: Image
But why am I not linking Twitter screenshots? Well, I haven't been on here for even two years yet, so my oldest conversations are in private FB chats with friends and family, as those were the only people I tried to warn.

#YouAskedUs if we printed cash to finance the federal gov’t.

We didn't.

👇 Keep reading to learn how we supported the economy from the shock of the pandemic. #CdnEcon #AskTheBoC

The pandemic has been a crisis like no other.

As a result, we took various measures, like buying bonds, to support and ensure a strong and stable #economy.

We bought existing gov't bonds from banks on the open market.


This helped unblock frozen markets at the start of the #pandemic.

It let households, companies and governments access funding when they really needed it.

In this little story I summarize how Covid, Supply Chain, Debt, Wages, Inflation, a Eecession, Insolvency and an aging population come together to form a common solution: Crypto Assets

1) ...
So much is happening in the world. War, High #inflation, Covid, #recession, insolvancy, a debt bubble and Supply Chain problems.

All of these causes have a large impact on the world economy and therefore on your portfolio, which makes it important to understand what is going on. Image
The main consequence:

An nation on the verge of collapse and a debt bubble around the world.

As Ray Dalio said

'A nation in its last effort of strength is hugely in debt, there are internal wealth disparities and printing money seems to many to be the solution, but it is not'. Image

The United States Treasury Bonds were considered the safest bonds in the whole world all these years. Investors and governments always preferred to park their money buying these bonds. Why?
The Fed was able to keep the real interest rates of these bonds (inflation-adjusted) above zero.

Now, The world finally lost trust in these bonds. The Fed lost control over its economy. On 15th March 2021, the real interest rates dropped well below zero and are now at -5.4 %. It means whoever bought US treasury bonds will carry a negative real interest rate.
