  • Financial markets are forward-looking. At least that’s what business school professors teach us.They believe traders look at the future and decide how much a stock will be worth in 10 years. The current price is based on that future price.You might be shaking your head in disbelief. But that’s what Wall Street analysts do.They create spreadsheets to forecast the future. Then they make assumptions about interest rates, and the spreadsheets tell them what to pay for a stock.It sounds scientific, but it’s not. The whole process depends on the chart below.(Source: Federal Reserve)This is a chart of what investors believe inflation will average over the next 10 years. It’s based on what the current interest rates are.It’s always close to the current rate of inflation. In other words, investors believe inflation will stay about the same.That’s a surprisingly accurate assumption. Inflation generally does stay within a narrow range.But when it unexpectedly jumps, like it did in 1968, the stock and bond markets fall.The Federal Reserve calls this important metric “inflation expectations.” It understands that if expectations are stable, markets are fine.But if inflation jumps, expectations will jump. The Fed’s goal is to manage expectations.When inflation jumped in 1968, expectations stayed high for more than 20 years. Stocks suffered four distinct bear markets from the next 15 years. A bear market in this case is a decline of at least 20% in the S&P 500.If inflation and inflation expectations jump, that will happen again.Investors will see volatility and declines more often. Consumers will suffer as prices rise at stores. Overall, it will simply be terrible.And it’s likely to happen within the next few years.Regards,Michael Carr, CMTEditor, Peak Velocity Trader

  • Credit Agricole CIB FX Strategy Research discusses its outlook for the FX market next week, noticing that the thematic focus would be on the inflation data releases from the US, Canada, UK, and the Eurozone.  In the US, CACIB thinks that the USD may get little help from US inflation data given that CACIB doesn’t expect any acceleration in the core CPI reading.  In Canada, CACIB thinks that the CAD should be in a better position to benefit from any pick-up in inflation and maintains a short USD/CAD* position. In the UK, CACIB believes that the UK CPI could put the BoE’s view that inflation is close to peaking to test, arguing that it remains to be seen whether any evidence of a persistent inflation overshoot would help GBP on a re-pricing of the BoE’s rate outlook. Finally in the Eurozone, CACIB notes that the final HICP print may help investors to focus their attention on the likely positive impact from higher-than-expected oil prices and the weaker EUR TWI on the near-term inflation outlook. CACIB keep EUR longs against both USD* and CHF*.  Source: Credit Agricole CIB Research The article is published by one of the foremost sources of Forex trading information. Link to the original article above. from eFXNews

What is relation between inflation and interest rate? Interest rate is the rate that borrowers pay extra for using money from a lender. Inflation is a rise in price level for goods and services over a period of time. When the price level rices, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. As a general rule of thumb, loaners like inflation and lenders dislike inflation because inflation decreases the value of money. This causes lenders to increase the interest rate, so that they do not become poorer than when they started off lending out money. Inflation increases interest rate. When lenders loans out money, they want to make a profit. I
