Experts Analyze the Market
According to Thomas Taw, head of APAC iShares Investment Strategy at BlackRock Inc (NYSE: BLK), the Fed will flip policy at some point and that should be helpful for risk markets, but in the meanwhile, they’re so set on quelling inflation that we prefer not to purchase the drop here. TD Securities analysts Priya Misra and Gennadiy Goldberg said in a note that as long as inflation stays too high despite a solid labor market and pay trends, market pricing is excessive, and the terminal rate should go closer to 3.5 percent to 3.75 percent.
On the statistics front, the second quarter’s U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) decline was 0.9 percent annually, according to figures released on Thursday. In a separate development, US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping want to meet in person. This will be the first face-to-face encounter between the two leaders since Biden took office.
