CHART OF THE DAY: Fed Forecast Versus #TheCycle

Editor's Note: Below is a brief excerpt and chart from today's Early Look written by Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough. Click here to learn more.


"... And now, markets are “gonna rip” based on a low-probability scenario that the Fed’s forecast for growth to magically re-accelerate (into peak of #TheCyclecompares in Q2) is accurate? #Cool. Good luck with that.


We’re sticking with our forecast of GDP sub 1% for Q2 and the worst profits of #TheCycle in Q2 and Q3. Alongside #EmploymentSlowing, we remain The Bears on #EarningsSlowing. We expect The Financials (XLF) to lead on the downside of earnings with the Yield Spread (10yr minus 2yr) not budging last week (still at YTD lows of 94 basis points wide)."

A Few Brief Thoughts On Janet Yellen's Speech Today

Takeaway: The probability is rising that Janet makes her 2nd policy mistake (raising into a slow-down) in 8 months.

A Few Brief Thoughts On Janet Yellen's Speech Today - rate hike cartoon 12.04.2015


I just spent the last 30 minutes in the car listening to maybe the most complacent recap of Fed forecasting risk yet. Today Janet sounded as hawkish as she's been (mainly because her assessment of the economy is as off as it's been). Here's what she said:


“It’s appropriate, and I’ve said this in the past I think, for the Fed to gradually and cautiously increase our overnight interest rate over time, and probably in the coming months such a move would be appropriate."


In other words, the probability is rising that Janet makes her 2nd policy mistake (raising into a slow-down) in 8 months. 


You go rate hike pro – you go.


A Few Brief Thoughts On Janet Yellen's Speech Today - Rate hike cartoon 11.30.2015


The biggest risk to both markets and the country remains the Fed's forecast. With a "0" in front of GDP and S&P earnings growth down -8.5% y/y, should the Federal Reserve raise rates in June? 


I'll let you be the judge of that but consider this: If the US Government used the Fed's prefered measure of inflation, US GDP would have been NEGATIVE in Q1.


If you didn't listen to Hedgeye and sold on the last policy (hike) mistake in December, you're being advised to listen now.
