Fed steps up tightening amid worsening inflation

The Fed’s larger 75bp rate hike came as little surprise to the markets following the worse than expected May CPI data and Monday’s tip-off in the Wall Street Journal. Our view that inflation will remain uncomfortably high and that the economy will avoid a recession means we expect the Fed to follow through on plans to continue tightening rapidly, with rates peaking at the upper end of the 3.5%-4.0% range officials now expect early next year.

Global Markets Outlook

We think the latest asset price rallies will prove short-lived

We doubt the recent rallies in global bond and equity markets will be sustained over the remainder of the year. While we no longer think the 10-year US Treasury yield will exceed its June peak, we still expect it to rise as the Fed delivers a bit more tightening than investors now seem to anticipate. And we think government bond yields elsewhere will increase for similar reasons. We expect that, combined with a deteriorating economic backdrop, to place renewed pressure on “risky” assets; we forecast major benchmark equity indices – in both developed and emerging markets – to fall further this year, and expect corporate bond spreads to widen. But next year we think both “safe” and risky assets will fare a bit better, as central banks transition to easing mode and the economic backdrop starts to improve.

A brighter outlook for EM local currency bonds

We continue to expect the yields of 10-year emerging market (EM) local currency (LC) sovereign bonds to rise over the rest of 2022. But we anticipate smaller rises than we did previously, given our downward revisions to our Treasury yield forecast, and expect most EM LC yields to decline, on net, by end-2024.

How changes to yield curve control might affect JGBs

We think the Bank of Japan will widen the tolerance band around its 10-year Japanese Government Bond yield target, and that the yield will consequently rise by around 25bp. But there is a clear risk of a larger and more disorderly sell-off than that.
