Abstract：As a result, Chinese markets aren't as upbeat as they were after the epidemic ended on Tuesday. This could be because people are becoming more aware of how long it will take to significantly increase immunization rates in the country.
As a result, Chinese markets aren't as upbeat as they were on Tuesday after the end of the epidemic. This might be because people are realizing how long it will take to significantly increase immunization rates there.
Even if limitations are lifted, additional infections and illnesses will occur, potentially hampering development in the first half of next year. Disappointing Chinese PMI readings for November only highlight the harm that has already been done.
However, markets have not reversed yesterday's gains, signaling that Beijing is now committed to opening up, which must benefit the global economy and supply chains in the long run.
As a result, investors are now again waiting for Powell. According to the expert, he will have to play the Grinch to prevent US markets from further relaxing financial conditions. Since the Fed raised interest rates by 75 basis points on November 2, 10-year yields have plummeted 38 basis points, undoing most of the Fed's good work.
As a consequence, the message will almost certainly be, “People, hold off on rate cuts.” The job market is tense, and inflation is 7.7%, not 2%. To be sufficiently restricted and remain there for a longer period of time, the terminal rate will have to be higher than first assumed.
Another concern is whether he can be hawkish enough, given the rising indicators of an inflationary tipping point. In Australia, a new monthly gauge of inflation gained just 0.2% in October, while some economists expected a 1.0% increase. The yearly rate has decreased to 6.9% from 7.3%, indicating that a peak is imminent.
This is consistent with inflation statistics from Germany and Spain, both of which surprised on the negative and prompted markets to cut ECB rates by 10 basis points at the December policy meeting. This indicates that today's EU-wide inflation figure will be lower than the expectation of 10.4%, even if core measures are more steady than predicted.
Important happenings that might have an impact on markets on Wednesday include:
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will speak on the economy and the labor market before a question-and-answer session at the Brookings Institution at 18:30 GMT.
A slew of statistics from the United States, including JOLTS job vacancies, ADP employment, the Chicago PMI, and the second estimate of Q3 GDP and PCE prices.
