Traders, investors and other bond market participants have now weighed in on a series of economic reports that signaled continued inflationary pressures and a tight labor market, further fueling concerns that the so-called Federal Reserve’s (FED) hiking cycle may not be completely over yet. These economic reports notably included indicators such as fewer jobless claims than expected and a higher-than-expected increase in wage costs in the second quarter of this year 2023. “Today’s jobless claims and wage bill report raise concerns about higher rates ,” said David Russell, global head of market strategy at TradeStation. “They may not put the September FOMC Fed meeting back in play for a hike, but they do increase the likelihood of a hawkish dot,” this expert added. Traders and investors will continue to watch the 10-year Treasury yield in particular, Mr. Russell said, adding that a break above the October peak could weigh heavily on stocks in particular. According to economic correspondents linked to investment strategists, the financial markets still value a 93% probability that the FOMC FED will leave interest rates unchanged at its meeting at the end of this month, i.e. September 2023.
