    U.S. Equities' Momentum Carries Into Fed Week: Markets Wrap

    U.S. equity benchmarks rose at the start of a week filled with potentially significant catalysts -- from central bank meetings, geopolitical developments and economic data. Financials and consumer stocks also advanced, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fought to stay positive even as Boeing declined on reports that the U.S. Transportation Department was examining the 737 Max’s design certification. Equities have been trending upward, and volatility declining, on expectations the Fed will point the way to just one rate hike in 2019 when it meets this week.

    The Fed may soon let inflation run a little hotter than usual, Goldman says

    The Fed has begun a monthslong review of its policy framework to consider alternative approaches to targeting inflation, and Goldman Sachs believes the central bank will decide to allow overshoots of its inflation goal next year. "If implemented ... this change would decrease the likelihood of further near-term policy tightening and lead to a small and gradual increase in both expected and realized price inflation," says Goldman's equity strategist Ben Snider. Since 2012, the Fed has always been attempting to hit a 2 percent target, but inflation has fallen short through much of the recovery.

    S&P 500 ETFs See Biggest Inflows Since Index Hit Record High

    “The flows show confidence in an accommodative Fed is starting to outweigh concerns over the lateness of the cycle for many investors, although some are still choosing to play this a bit more safely with quality and low-volatility ETFs,’’ said Eric Balchunas, senior ETF analyst for Bloomberg Intelligence. This appetite for a broad basket of U.S. equities would stand in stark contrast to many of 2019’s early trends. Quadruple witching -- the expiration of futures and options on indexes and individual stocks that typically spurs a lot of trading activity -- may have contributed to these flows.

    Worst-Ever Drought for Bank ETF Breaks Ahead of Fed Meeting

    The $2.3 billion SPDR S&P Bank ETF, ticker KBE, hadn’t seen a single day of inflows since January, but that changed Friday when investors deposited $38 million into the fund. State Street’s broader sector fund, the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund, ticker XLF, also caught a bid with its second largest weekly inflow this year. The sudden investor interest comes ahead of this week’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting, in which the Federal Reserve’s so-called dot plot, plans for its balance sheet and economic projections will be in the spotlight.

    The chief U.S. equity strategist at Credit Suisse boosted his year-end forecast for the S&P 500 by 100 points to 3,025, a level that represents a 7 percent increase from Friday’s close. Growth in corporate profits is slowing more than expected, but improving sentiment means investors will be willing to pay a higher multiple for stocks, Golub says.

    Wall Street looks to leave behind the half-year bear scare

    Wednesday will mark six months since the S&P 500 reached its last record high at 2,930. Last week's resilient showing nosed the S&P 500 up to a zone that has capped four rallies since October and three between February and June 2018. Wall Street has been helped by the absence of imminent U.S. recession signals, an overt move toward policy patience by the Federal Reserve and sticky-low Treasury yields bolstering equity valuations.

    A Recession Is Coming, And Maybe a Bear Market, Too

    Tighter monetary policy by the Federal Reserve that the central bank now worries it may have overdone. At that time, the Fed ended its interest-rate hiking cycle and cut the federal funds rate with no ensuing recession. Policy makers want higher rates in order to have significant room to cut in the next recession, and the current 2.25 percent to 2.50 percent range doesn’t give them much leeway.
