    MRB Partners global strategist Phillip Colmar spoke with Investing.com following the most recent Federal Reserve meeting.

    “The bond market is waking up to the fact that inflation is stickier than we thought,” said Phillip Colmar, managing partner at the research firm MRB Partners. “That is causing a lot of volatility in equities.” Whereas optimism for a so-called soft landing of the economy buoyed a broad array of stocks starting late last year, Colmar expects choppy waters ahead.  “It is not a buy-everything rally now,” he said.

    “The market is very attuned to inflation because Powell said the Fed doesn’t have enough evidence of inflation easing,” said Phillip Colmar of MRB Partners. “The components that drive inflation, were above trend in the GDP release, so he’s not going to have the confidence he needs to cut rates.”

    “We would not add gold exposure at current prices, and view it as vulnerable on a 6-12 month horizon as forward markets will further unwind Fed rate cut expectations and bond yields have more upside,” Strategists at MRB Partners said in a Friday note.

    “The prevailing consensus is that inflation’s recent pickup is an anomaly, and that inflation will return to its low pre-pandemic run-rate ahead,” says MRB Partners. “The last three CPI reports support MRB’s view that the consensus is mistaken.”

  • MRB on Kiplinger – April 10, 2024

    “U.S. CPI inflation was hotter than expected yet again in March, narrowing the window further for Federal Reserve rate cuts. The past few months are consistent with our view that inflation will bottom out closer to 4% than 2%, and well above what is expected by the central bank and bond market.” – Phillip Colmar, managing partner and global strategist at MRB Partners.

    The strength of the U.S. economy has continued to surprise even stock-market bulls, consistent with our view said Phillip Colmar, managing partner at MRB Partners. All the economic data has come in stronger than expected.

    “Our view is that as long as bond yields can consolidate around current levels, the equity market does have the green light to go higher, and we expect a broader participation in that rally, which we’ve already started to see,” Phillip Colmar global macro strategist at MRB Partners told Investing.com’s Yasin Ebrahim on Wednesday.

    Phillip Colmar, global strategist at MRB Partners, noted “U.S. employment continues to expand at a very healthy pace on a trend basis, driven by strong corporate profitability and signals an economic expansion that is still very robust and a labor market that is very tight. The Federal Reserve may have a desire to ease, but there is no indication that the economy requires rate cuts.”
