This round of US stock bear market will not end until October?

  In the face of the decline in US stocks, Sanctuary Wealth Chief Investment Officer Jeff Kilburg believes that this is a major asset re-pricing and a serious imbalance, which is stimulated and promoted by the Fed's policy.

“I think the only way for stocks to bottom out and the market to recover anytime soon is if the Fed has the ability to use the tools in its toolbox to stabilize rates. The 10-year yield needs to get back below 3%.”

  According to a new report from Michael Hartnett, chief investment strategist at Bank of America Global Research, U.S. stock investors will experience inflation, interest rates and recessions for most of 2022.

Drawing on the historical bear market data of U.S. stocks, this round of the U.S. stock market bear market will end on October 19, 2022, when the S&P 500 and Nasdaq will hit 3,000 and 10,000 points, respectively.

  "The volatility of U.S. stocks has intensified recently, which may be due to optimistic market interest rate hike expectations. Although a 75 basis point rate hike is currently ruled out, it does not rule out the possibility of continuous interest rate hikes in the future. Regarding the trend of U.S. stocks in the next year, due to liquidity ( Due to the dual pressures of raising interest rates, shrinking balance sheets) and declining corporate profits, a phased decline may occur in 2022." Guo Shengbei, vice president of Tianfeng Securities, believes.

  It is worth mentioning that the Federal Reserve warned in its semi-annual financial stability report released on Monday that liquidity conditions in major financial markets are deteriorating due to rising risks from the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, monetary policy tightening and high inflation.

"According to some indicators, liquidity in recently issued Treasury and stock index futures markets has declined since the end of 2021."

  "While the recent liquidity deterioration has not been as extreme as some past events, the risk of a sudden and significant deterioration appears to be higher than normal," the report said. "Furthermore, since the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, liquidity in the oil futures market has at times been tight, while A number of other affected commodity markets are clearly dysfunctional."

  "High inflation and rising interest rates in the U.S. could negatively impact U.S. domestic economic activity, asset prices, credit quality and broader financial conditions," the report said.
