Aggressive rate hikes ahead; Employment Situation report to be released Friday
Fed chief Powell spoke briefly last Friday on his determination to fight inflation. He said that the central bank will further increase rates, and there will very likely be some softening of labor market conditions. Other Fed officials saw interest rates rising further and the need to keep rates at a high level for some time.
•New York Fed chief John Williams said interest rates probably need to advance above 3.5% at some point to achieve their goal. It’s going to take time before downward adjustments are expected to be seen.
•Atlanta Fed chief Raphael Bostic called the duty to curb inflations “unshakable,” but said he’s open to dialing back the pace of increases if prices cool.
The Fed has targeted a 2% PCE rate as their target for cooling inflation. The index fell by 0.1% to 6.3% in July as gas prices decreased. However, it is still at a 40-year high. And with geopolitical conflicts putting pressure on crude oil prices and high mortgage rates pushing more potential home buyers into the rental market, oil and rent prices will continue to be highly volatile in the near future, making it difficult to mark the peak of inflation.
Investors are now turning their eyes to the health of the labor market for a read on the future path of Fed’s policy. Companies sharply slowed the pace of recruitment in August amid growing fears of an economic slowdown, according to payroll processing company ADP. Private payrolls grew by just 132,000 for the month, a deceleration from the 268,000 gains in July, and the Dow Jones estimate for the ADP count was 300,000. The Bureau of Labor will release its Employment Situation report on Friday, and the Dow Jones estimate for non-farm payrolls in August is 318,000.
How do you think the market will react after employment statistics are released on Friday?
