A look at the day ahead in European and global markets from Ankur Banerjee

After the central bank triple-header (that's the Fed, ECB and BoE) buoyed risk appetite and emboldened investor hopes of the end of the massive global tightening cycle came the Big Tech triple-header to revive worries over global economic conditions.

The Fed hiked 25bps as fully expected and the statement had 3 key highlights:

Hawkish - keeps "ongoing increases" (plural) language signaling no pause in March.

Small Dovish - adds inflation "has eased somewhat" but notes "remains elevated."

Dovish - Changes "pace" of future increases with "extent", as it transitions from the rate of hikes to the duration of higher rates before any pivot.

As Inflation Insights suggests:

"The one word change from the ‘pace’ of future rate hikes to the ‘extent’ of future hikes tells you that when the Minutes come out, we’ll likely read that officials have begun to debate when to pause."

We have not seen these three major central bank decisions (Fed, BoE, ECB); and key data releases (US ISM, payrolls, and the employment cost index, as well as Euro Area inflation, GDP, and confidence data) in the same week before. Not to mention in combination with month-end flow, which given the incidence of supply in Europe should be sizeable in both EUR and GBP."

The AP Interview: Yellen says debt standoff risks ‘calamity’

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in an Associated Press interview Saturday she expects Congress will ultimately vote to raise America's debt limit, but demands by House Republicans for spending cuts in return for backing an increase are “a very irresponsible thing to do” and risk creating a “self-imposed calamity” for the global economy.

“It is possible for markets to become quite concerned about whether or not the U.S. will pay its bills,” she said, pointing to the negative economic impacts of a debt showdown in 2011.

Fed’s Bowman says there’s ‘a lot more work to do’ to bring down inflation - jeff cox 12:00am

Federal Reserve Governor Michelle Bowman said Tuesday she expects more interest rate increases ahead, with higher rates to prevail for a while until inflation is subdued.
“I expect that once we achieve a sufficiently restrictive federal funds rate, it will need to remain at that level for some time,” she said.

Powell says Fed might have to make unpopular decisions to stabilize prices - jeff cox 09:00am

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell noted that stabilizing prices requires making tough decisions that can be unpopular politically.
In other remarks, the central bank leader said the Fed is “not, and will not be, a ‘climate policymaker.’”

boj the game is between a cat (the FED) and mice (market players)

The mice know jumbo hikes are now done. Which is what currently is helping stocks.

The cat knows that IF rates were to drop sharply, its inflation fighting effort would be anulled seeing player eagerness.

So the cat is currently playing a delicate game with the mice' expectations about the size of the next interest rate setting.

The game has little to do with inflation itself (that is FED's material) and mostly everything with managing (and pricing) market player expectation.

Lots of opinions and plans from central bankers on deck today

The overall drift likely will be a pushback against cut expectations. The overlords are not yet ready to their tightening "work" be crushed up by too much "mami it is over" unbridled easing enthusiasm.

markets are just itching and biting the bridle and I will not be surprised to see the CBankers try - jerome's record is rather iffy in this - to discourage dovish perceptions.
