The Late, Late, Late Fed Show

Taken at its word, the Fed will begin “rapid” Quantitative Tightening roughly two months after halting Quantitative Easing. Its projected short-term interest rate increases in the year ahead will roughly match the largest for any annual period in history. The Fed has positioned policy to be pro-cyclical rather than countercyclical, likely adding to financial market and economic volatility.

Lagging indicators such as employment and inventory restocking provide “inertia” for economic growth to continue this year. However, a demand slowdown is inevitable.

Therefore, Citi analysts have further shifted their asset allocation to better absorb greater market volatility and less robust economic growth following a strong recovery.

The expansion will endure: Seeking sustained returns

The hope that 8 billion vaccinations and widespread population exposure to the Delta variant would be sufficient to subdue COVID-19 turned out to be false when Omicron struck. At the same time, Citi analysts became convinced that, for 2022 and 2023, the global economic recovery that is now underway will endure and ultimately outlast the pandemic. In short, we believe the world economy and equity markets have not peaked and have room to grow.

Citi analysts do not believe there will be a rapid return to normal anytime soon. In fact, there is a new normal evolving now that is central to our positive economic outlook. This new normal consists of the establishments of a data-enabled, decentralized, flexible and highly efficient economic order. Within it, the accelerated adoption of technology across every industry and every business is a necessity.
