Saxo Market Call

Powell shrugs off yield rise, triggering fresh market tantrum

March 5, 2021

Today's slide deck: https://bit.ly/3bjKuuN  -

Today we unpack what unfolded yesterday, as Fed Chair Powell failed to provide the reassurance that the market was looking for on the recent sharp rise in Treasury yields, and ponder what happens next. The equity market lurched into a broad decline, led once again by the most speculative and yield-sensitive stocks, the USD spiked and treasuries closed at their highest yield levels for the cycle. Elsewhere, we look at why oil spiked higher on the same day, as markets provided a heady mix of developments, with another nervous day for markets likely ahead. On today's call were Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
