 Monday Morning for Markets  

Thursday, March 17, 2022

11:00 AM to 12:40 PM PDT


The Presentation

With COVID (hopefully) fading into the background, the economy and markets are facing their own version of “the Monday Morning Blues” – that brief period that lies between the absolute freedom of the weekend and the drudgery of the workweek, those few precious minutes where you look at your alarm clock and think “ugh. Back to reality.” Thanks to trillions and trillions of dollars worth of stimulus and monetary accommodation, the global economy and capital markets sailed through the most dramatic period in modern economic history with hardly a scratch. But with the pandemic on the wane, enough progress has now been made for the Federal Reserve and its central banker pals around the globe to begin removing all that accommodation, meaning that it’s time for the economy to get back to work, standing on its own two feet without the support of the bankers. And markets have taken note: stock prices are down and interest rates are up and volatility is on the rise. We’ll explore those relationships and discuss a few of the disconnects (inflation, labor market woes and supply chain issues) that still need to be solved before we can consider ourselves fully healed from our bout with the virus.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand what’s meant by “accommodative policy”: how it’s implemented, why it contributed to relative calm for markets during the COVID-19 pandemic, and why it’s now important to remove it.
  2. Discuss the relationships between various asset classes like stocks and bonds and why we’ve ironically seen an increase in volatility as the pandemic fades.
  3. Analyze some of the lingering impacts of COVID and the policies put in place to mitigate the economic damage (i.e. inflation, tight labor markets and supply chain issues,) with the goal of identifying some of the conditions under which they might relent.
