Don’t Be Fooled by the Market Rally on Fed News

(12/16/21) Markets loved the Fed's announcement that tapering will commence, and the rate of change in rates will be accelerate: Three interest rate hikes in 2022, and three more in 2023. If inflation continues to rage (now termed "non-transitory"), there is a likelihood those rate hikes will become even more fast and furious. This more-hawkish mood of the Fed did not deter markets, rising sharply on the announcement, and the S&P could hit 4700 over the next few days. Markets are, however, very over-bought, limiting the upside somewhat. The recent selling has been a function of mutual fund "window dressing" as year-end approaches. Of continuing concern lately has been the lack of volume--even in yesterday's strong rally. And, markets are now set-up for the classic, end-of-the-year rally. The first five days of January will see mutual funds resetting their positions in the New Year, and we're going to be a little more cautious in our outlooks, with significant headwinds coming our way: tighter monetary policy, weaker economic growth, shrinking profit margins, etc.
