The Fed raising rates as the inflation running hot?

The manufacturing sector has been highly pressured by the recent inflation created by the high commodities prices, when most industrial and grain commodities have moved vertically.

As the Chicago Business Barometer states, the factory gate prices just hit a 41-year high. In other words, the last time inflation was this high in 1980. That happened when the Federal Reserve (Fed) was forced to raise rates to over 15% and was one of the worst inflationary storms in history.

Slowing manufacturing, rising prices

So back in March 1983 the ISM Manufacturing was at its highest, but there was still hope for a small improvement for the April. Despite these hopeful expectations the ISM dropped from 64.7 to 60.7 – even as prices paid increased further. The prices paid subindex – i.e, the inflation component – rose for the eleventh month and now stands at June 2008 levels. Back then oil was way above 120 USD, nearing its peak, while the US 10-year yield stood at 4. 

As manufacturers and suppliers face significant price pressures 0%, we can expect the retail prices of the goods in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) basket to rise over the next few months. This may result in the inflation way above 3%. Based on this, the investors would assume that strong price pressures should lead the Fed to tighten monetary policy.

Will the Fed raise rates?

When the central bank raises rates usually it is a bad sign for small companies with weaker balance sheets. Basically, they will need to pay more to survive in business. However, the largest companies may also be affected in case the rate goes up again. As bond prices drop, bond yields will surge, destroying bond investors. This situation has been happening since the summer of 2020. The economic activity usually contracts or slows down notably in the high-yield environment. It is expected that higher rates may lead to disinflationary pressures, but like with everything, it will take some considerable time for the real impact to show up. 

With all the mentioned facts we can conclude that the Fed can’t raise rates and can’t taper its Quantitative Easing (QE) program. Otherwise, it could lead to a significant correction in the stock markets and the slowdown of an already fragile economy. And unfortunately, this might not end well, as the Fed simply doesn’t see a way around this situation and is trapped in it.

HotForex launches a new RevShare+ program

What do traders and footballers have in common?

Proper preparation and the right psychological mindset are some of the traits that online traders and footballers have in common! HotForex welcomes you to discover all their shared principles in this 8-step guide for improving your trading skills:  

Step 1: Education is a must

Both football players and traders can’t do their job properly without knowing all the rules, without understanding the process. The education gives them all the knowledge they need to be successful in what they do. 

Step 2: Practice your skills

Just as football team getting ready for the big game by training and playing non-stop to master their skills, same the traders should put their knowledge in work and refine their skills while trading. 

Step 3: Create a strategy

Without a proper strategy no team ever would win a game. Both football players and traders must be prepared with a strategy that will lead them to success. 

Step 4: Psychological control

Just as the football matches, financial markets are fast paced. With the right approach and right psychology players and traders know when to make a move and when to wait to get the best shot. 

Step 5: Persistence

Persistence is the one thing winners have in common. It helps them through the hard times, overcome all the obstacles no matter if it’s a sudden market move or a red card during the game.

Step 6: Good defence

Both traders and football players must be prepared for unpredictable. They are always ready to put what they have learned into practice, be ready to adapt and strike.

Step 7: Commitment to excellence

Just like football, trading requires a commitment to time and maximum effort on their way to success.

Step 8: Keep looking ahead

HotForex and PSG never stop at what they have reached and always aim for the bigger highs, because the next match or trade should always be the best.

Inflation is rising, commodities go vertical

The whole financial world is watching how the current inflation is rising at a fast pace. While some asset prices such as food, real estate and used cars are in upward trend, the commodities have gone vertical and expected to stay this way for a long period of time now. 

Causes of the Current Inflationary Environment

One of the causes is the amount of the printed money by the Fed in the US. The Federal Reserve (Fed) has printed more 3 trillion USD between March and June 2020. But the US Federal Government has printed upwards of 5 trillion USD via its stimulus programs. 

Also, President Administration has plans on spending another 2.25 trillion USD on infrastructure, 2 trillion USD on climate change, 1.8 trillion USD for American Families Plan and more. We can include other major central banks, and the amount of printed money would most likely double or triple.

Massive Rally in all Commodities

There are some crazy changes in the commodiries market too. On Monday, iron ore futures surged 10% to a record high, steel prices rose 6%, and copper prices touched record highs. Silver and gold are starting to pick up as well, with gold rising to 1,840 USD and silver attacking the 28 USD level. Oil went up rising from 0-10 USD to the current 65 USD, which is hundreds of percent over the last year.

Each month main equity benchmarks are rising to new highs that we haven’t seen before, and most of the cryptocurrencies are off the charts. Many market specialists are calling this the biggest bubble of all time. Every bubble has a speculative mania part and a leverage component: everyone thinks that gains are inevitable. It would be irrational not to borrow money and leverage to extremes to maximize the guaranteed profits.

Is this Going to Stop?

Doesn’t seem like it. With the current monetary policies that the Fed and other central banks would refise to quit, fueling the bubbles to even greater extremes. 

Commodities will continue to spiral higher, sending inflation further through the roof, effectively crushing the middle and low-income class. Ordinary people will be among the most significant losers during high inflation periods – all groceries, utilities, services, cars, products, day-to-day stuff will become more expensive, while wages won’t react as fast.
