Score 9.9 (out of 10): SPDR S&P 500 ETF TRUST sets up for +3.3% rally in 1 month


What’s Going On Here?

Since the beginning of the year, equity markets have been driven by the expectations that the FOMC will raise rates twice in Q1 – previously expectations were for just one rate hike. In addition, Fed Chair Powell has indicated that the FOMC sees also the balance sheet as too large. Both rate hikes and a smaller balance sheet indicate tightening of liquidity. The question for investors is: has the market now priced in too much tightening?
