TOMORROW IS A QUADRUPLE WITCHING DAY!!: Don’t forget
TODAY’s OBSERVATIONS: Well my prediction yesterday was mixed. I predicted that Powell was too reactive to launch anything higher than a 50-bps rate hike. I predicted that Powell is not the type to deviate from the stated plan. Well, we got a 75-bps rate hike … a deviation from his stated plan. I also predicted the market would dump if he announced a 50-bps rate hike, & rally if he announced a 75-bps rate hike. That part came true!
SO WHAT?: Well now we undergo rate hike remorse! The big institutions essentially told Powell through their rate hike forecasts that the Fed had their blessing to increase by 75-bps. Now we need to deal with the consequences. A 75-bps rate hike is a truly massive jump! It demonstrates the Fed is now serious on tackling inflation. Particularly when we take into account the fact that they’re offloading junk from their balance sheet. Indeed I would argue that they will be lucky to get it down by $1T (of the $9T on the books) before they have to stop before wiping out the US economy & sending the markets down an additional 25-30% from current levels.
Remember that the pain of inflation doesn’t truly hit hard until either prices are so high the consumer is priced out … or … inflation tops off & begins to decline. If you think inflation topping off, whenever that happens, is a bullish indicator … you couldn’t be more wrong. Remember, for inflation to slow down it means the economy is cooling off. If the economy is cooling off, it means growth slows … people stop hiring, companies make economies, there’s less money exchanging hands … & the downward spiral continues until a probable recession.
It will be interesting to see how the market reacts to these rate hikes. It will be even more interesting to see how other central banks react. The Swiss National Bank just increased their rates by 50-bps when no rate hike was expected. We now await the Bank of England for their decision. (Update: increased interest rates by 25-bps & expects economic contraction for the current quarter). The last thing any country wants is for their currency to devalue against the dollar, so there is very strong incentive to raise rates more aggressively if the US Federal Reserve is doing the same.
RECESSION BOUND: Speaking of recessions the Atlanta Feds Q2 GDP tracker went from an expected 1.8% GDP growth rate to 0% in less than a month. Remember that Q1 GDP growth contracted -1.5% … meaning one more subsequent quarter of contraction puts us in a technical recession. The markets will not be happy. Everyone assessed a recession in 2023 … we may be in one now! The initial Q2 GDP print comes in on Thursday July 28th. Expect some volatility around that time!
HOUSING DATA TODAY: Today, God save us, we have housing data. Housing Starts & Building Permits for May. Analyst Consensus is 1.701m on the Starts & 1.885m on the Permits. What housing stocks will be affected? BZH MTH MHO TPH LL DHI LSEA PHM TOL LEN are ones that I can name off the top of my head.

BUY LIST UPDATE: It’s always tough after a market dump to add either long or short plays. Be patient folks. All of the suggested short plays I posted earlier worked marvelously! But I’m hesitant to add more given the market lows. It seems to me that shorts are holding & when they cover the markets will rally.
