Stocks Tumbled! Fed Rate Hike Concerns?


Stocks tumbled. The U.S key benchmark indexes tumbled over 5% as a weekly loss. The most market-moving economic data this week come on Friday, with the announcement of the May consumer price index (CPI) inflation figure. The inflation statistics came in worse than expected, with the headline rate coming in at 8.6 percent year on year, up from 8.2 percent.

The Fed has most likely already approved 0.50 % rate rises for the June and July meetings, and Friday’s strong inflation data raises the likelihood of a 0.50 % rate hike in September. Markets are now pricing in a 62 % possibility of a 0.50 % rate rise and a 33 % chance of the Fed acting even more forcefully, with a 0.75 % rate hike.

Following the release of the CPI, Treasury rates in the United States jumped sharply, with yields on short- and intermediate-term maturities climbing significantly.


The European Central Bank (ECB) signalled that it may raise interest rates sooner than expected in July when it intends to terminate its ultra-easy monetary policy.

European stocks sank dramatically from about, -2% to -6% as the ECB hinted that interest rates might rise quicker than expected after July. Core eurozone government bond rates rose, owing mostly to the ECB policy meeting, which markets saw as more hawkish. Government bond yields in the eurozone and the United Kingdom generally mirrored those in the main markets.


The APAC benchmark indices moved in a range of directions. The Nikkei-225, Hang Seng, and Shanghai indices all finished the week higher. The HSI-50 index from Hong Kong outperformed.

 The Chinese stock market soared in expectation of a looser monetary policy and signs that Beijing was loosening its years-long stranglehold on the technology industry. The indices, Nifty-50, Kospi-100, and ASX-200, on the other hand, fell by 2% to 5% on a weekly basis.
