Counting down to the US recession: is the US debt being inverted more frightening than the inversion itself?
The deepening of the inversion itself after the inversion of the US bond yield curve has occurred is not the most frightening thing. When the inversion of the US bond yield curve peaks and is rapidly reversed, it is possible to truly indicate that the pace of economic recession is getting closer to people. As shown in the chart below, before or during the actual recessions in the US economy, the direction in which the US bond yield curve operated without exception quickly came out of reverse.
After traders drastically cut their bets on the Fed's further interest rate hike this year and raised interest rate cut expectations sharply, the US bond yield curve is expected to record the fastest steep pace since 2008/10 this month — the inversion between 2-year US Treasury yields and 10-year US Treasury yields, which has now narrowed sharply to about 40 basis points.
Is the market betting that the Federal Reserve will stop raising interest rates in May? But this data may shatter the illusions of the outside world
Under the pressure of the US banking crisis, the market is increasingly speculating that the Federal Reserve may suspend interest rate hikes in May. However, the personal consumption expenditure (PCE) price index to be released this Friday may shatter the market's illusions. According to market expectations, the US PCE price index may still be high in February. This may suggest that the inflationary pressure faced by the Federal Reserve will still be difficult to reduce in the short term, and I'm afraid hopes of suspending interest rate hikes may still be dashed.
Is the banking crisis unstoppable central bank's austerity? Daimo: Fighting inflation still comes first, even if it's costly
Morgan Stanley's chief global economist Seth Carpenter said in an article on Monday local time that the idea of stabilizing financial markets at the expense of price stability is a “false dichotomy” and that fighting inflation remains a priority for central banks. Carpenter believes that although the central bank's austerity policies have interfered with the banking industry to a certain extent, in an ideal situation, central banks will discuss matters and use different tools to deal with macroeconomic issues and financial stability issues.
Wall Street is intensively warning: US commercial real estate is the next thunderbolt
Commercial real estate in the US may be the next industry to storm after the banking crisis. Nearly trillion dollars of debt due in the next two years, and the possibility that small banks will follow the larger banks in tightening their loan exposure, have all increased the pressure on commercial real estate. Currently, more and more major Wall Street banks are warning of this disastrous outlook, including investment banks such as Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Credit Suisse.
Legendary investor: “All bubbles” are bursting, and the S&P 500 index is likely to plummet 50%

Daimo's “big short”: Listed companies' excessive profit expectations are a big disadvantage for US stocks
Michael Wilson, a famous Wall Street bearish and Morgan Stanley strategist, said on Monday that the turmoil in the banking industry has caused the profit guidelines of listed companies to seem too high, which may put US stocks at risk of a sharp decline. Wilson wrote in a report on Monday, “Given the events of the past few weeks, we think profit guidance seems increasingly unrealistic. Prices in the stock market are likely to be drastically lowered before the hard data changes.”
Another risk of the US banking crisis: the government debt crisis may accelerate
In addition to the sharp increase in liquidity risk in the banking sector itself, Brian Gardner, chief Washington policy strategist at Stifel, a well-known US investment firm, warned that banking turmoil may also accelerate the advent of the US debt ceiling problem. He pointed out that due to the crisis in the banking sector, the scale of credit will shrink, and the entire US economy will cool down, which will limit the government's revenue. Gardener expects that the critical point of the debt ceiling will come a little earlier, but there will be no extreme situations several months ahead of schedule.
