November 14, 2022 Headlines

Treasuries are giving back some of Thursday’s historic rally (biggest one-day yield decline since March 2009) following more hawkish Fedspeak. Front-end yields are up 5-7 basis points after Fed Governor Waller reiterated their commitment to get inflation down. “We’ve still got a ways to go,” said Waller. “This isn’t ending in the next meeting or two.” Still, speculation that inflation is poised to fall in 2023 continues to grow. Goldman Sachs is the first major bank to call for a significant easing of inflation risks next year due to reduced price pressures from factors such as easing supply-side constraints, shelter costs, and wage inflation. Separately, a Wall Street Journal article notes that the largest retailers, including Walmart, Target, and Amazon, are now pushing back on price increases by suppliers and, in some cases, cancelling orders or asking for discounts. This week’s economic calendar includes multiple housing market metrics, October producer prices, and October retail sales. Several Fed leaders are scheduled to speak this week, including Vice Chair Brainard and New York Fed President John Williams later today.
