      pNEW YORK Reuters – A selloff in U.S. stocks and bonds will likely dry up during the summer months as the Federal Reserve whittles down its nearly 9 trillion balance sheet, said Rick Rieder, chief investment officer of global fixed income at Blackrock, the worlds largest asset manager.pdivdivdiv classBodysc17zpet90 cdBBJodiv

      pRieder believes the Fed‘s balance sheet reduction, which is expected to begin in June, will prove a “catalyzing moment” for asset prices and after that confidence may return to markets. Markets have been shaken by the central bank’s hawkish pivot, which is targeting the worst U.S. inflation in decades.p

      p“I do think well see better markets starting sometime in around the summer. … A lot will happen between now and then,” Rieder told Reuters in an interview.p

      pLongerterm, however, Rieder believes the decadeslong bull market in bonds is likely over.p

      p“We‘ve seen the end of the bond bull market: There’s a structurally higher inflation because of deglobalization, supply chain evolutions, stickier infrastructure costs,” he said.p

      pThe S&P 500 index last week came within striking distance of confirming a bear market after dropping from its alltime closing high on Jan. 3, while bonds have marked the worst start to the year in history.p

      pThe Fed is expected to hike interest rates by 50 basis points in both June and July after having already increased its benchmark overnight interest rate by 75 basis points this year, and has said it will start culling assets from its balance sheet in June at nearly twice the pace it did in its previous “quantitative tightening” exercise. p

      pReider believes that a rise in Treasury yields, which move inversely to bond pieces and saw yields on the benchmark 10year Treasury hit a 312year high of 3.2 last week, is nearly over.p

      pTenyear yields could hit an upper limit of possibly 3.25 to 3.5, Reider said, though he expects them to decline from those levels in the coming few months.p

      p“I think weve seen at least 90 of the move in rates this year”, Rieder said.p
