🎯 T.RowePrice – Japan Monetary Policy Must Update and ECB higher as never in 22 years 👇

INTEREST RATES HIGH AS NEVER IN 22 YEARS 🚨

– “The ECB monetary policy raised its key deposit rate by a quarter-point to 3.5% – the highest level in 22 years.”

– “ECB President Christine Lagarde said after the meeting that policymakers “still have ground to cover” and that they would probably tighten borrowing costs again in July, unless there was a “material change in the baseline outlook.”

– “The ECB also raised its forecasts for headline and core inflation across the three-year time horizon, strengthening the case for continued monetary tightening.”

– “The central bank also pared its estimates for economic growth about monetary policy.”

– “As part of an effort to shrink its balance sheet, the ECB confirmed that it would stop reinvesting the proceeds of its asset purchase program from July.”

🇯🇵 JAPAN MONETARY POLICY

– “The markets’ rally to their highest levels in over three decades was supported by the BOJ decision to leave its ultra-loose monetary policy unchanged, which had been widely anticipated.”

– “Stronger-than-expected Japanese export and machinery order data also boosted sentiment.”

– “Investors exercised some caution, however, after the U.S. Federal Reserve refrained from raising rates but hinted at more hikes to come.”

BOJ LEAVES ULTRA-LOOSE MONETARY POLICY UNCHANGED 🔎

– “At its June meeting, the Bank of Japan left its ultra-loose monetary policy settings unchanged, meeting investor expectations.”

– “BOJ Governor Kazuo Ueda hinted that when it comes to its YCC program, a certain degree of surprise may be unavoidable, in order to deal with the changing economic environment.”

Monetary Policy

– “Building inflationary pressure has heaped pressure on the BoJ to pivot from its easing stance.”

– “BOJ stuck to its projection that the year-on-year rate of increase in the CPI is likely to decelerate toward the middle of fiscal 2023.”

– “Ueda said that, while there is very high uncertainty on the economic and price outlook, the central bank expects consumer inflation to slow as cost-push factors dissipate, although inflation is still in the early stages of moderating.”

🎯 BlackRock – Are Central Banks underappreciating the existing damage from hikes? 👇

– “Sticky inflation looks to compel developed market (DM) central banks to crank policy rates higher – and keep policy tight for longer. The FED paused last week but pointed to more hikes on the way.”

– “The ECB raised rates and made clear it wasn’t done. Others hiked after earlier pauses.”

CENTRAL BANKS ARE UNDERAPPRECIATING THE CURRENT SITUATION? 👇

– “We think the Fed and ECB appear to be underappreciating the existing damage from hikes.”

– “The FED revised its growth forecast up based on historically low unemployment. The FED may be relying on a job and growth relationship that has broken, in our view.”

Monetary Policy

MONETARY POLICY – MARKET PRICING 🔎

– “The market pricing of hikes by the ECB and the BOE have become more extreme than our view: Pricing shows rates for both staying higher for much longer than the Fed while inflation stays elevated.”

Monetary Policy

SHORT-TERM BOND YIELDS JUMPED 🔔

– “Short-term bond yields jumped in the euro area and UK on market expectations for further rate hikes after the ECB’s signal and UK data showed surprisingly strong wages.”

– “Two-year Treasury yields also rose as the Fed signaled more rate hikes even after a pause.”

– “These events confirm the ongoing tightening bias of central banks facing sticky inflation. DM stocks hit new 14-month highs, with gains broadening beyond the mega cap tech shares that have been the big winners this year.”

🚨 BLACKROCK VIEW – MONETARY POLICY

– “The ultimate economic damage depends on how far central banks go to get inflation down.”

– “The fed paused rates in June but signaled further hikes ahead.” The ECB hiked again in June.”

– “We see the ECB going full steam ahead with rate hikes to get inflation to target – regardless of the damage that entails.”

– “High inflation has sparked cost-of-living crises, putting pressure on central banks to tame inflation with whatever it takes.”

– “Yet there has been little debate about the damage to growth and jobs. We think the “politics of inflation” narrative is on the cusp of changing.”

– “The Fed’s rapid rate hikes will stop without inflation being back on track to return fully to 2% targets, in our view. We think we are going to be living with inflation. We do see inflation cooling as spending patterns normalize and energy prices relent – but we see it persisting above policy targets in coming years.”
