No 75 BPS Hike

Please click here for a chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY) which represents the benchmark stock market index S&P 500 (SPX).

Note the following:

  • The chart shows when the Fed statement was released.
  • The chart shows when Powell’s press conference began.
  • The most important news from the press conference is that Powell has ruled out a 75 basis point increase.
  • In response, stocks have aggressively rallied.
  • In the Morning Capsule we wrote,

The technical set up is for a 5% rally.

  • Now the S&P 500 has rallied 2.81% as of this writing.
  • The market has rallied over 5% from lows only two days ago.
  • Powell said that he admires Volcker.  Powell also said that Volcker had the courage to do the right thing.
    • Our inference is that Powell is leaning towards doing the right thing even if it means tightening the monetary policy to the point of a recession.
      • This is very encouraging for the prudent long term investors.
      • This should be discouraging for the momo crowd.
  • Powell said that it is very difficult to project even 90 days ahead and the plan is to stay nimble.
  • Powell said that he cannot predict the neutral funds rate, but his estimate is that it is 2 – 3%.
  • The VUD indicator is the most sensitive measure of net supply demand in real-time. The orange represents net supply and the green represents net demand.
  • The VUD indicator is solid green since the Fed statement.  This indicates net demand.
