Will the Fed Have To Do More for Longer?
Stocks drifted mostly lower Thursday, as investors look to Friday’s nonfarm payroll data for signs the U.S. labor market is finally beginning to break. New applications for unemployment benefits did tick up to 219,000 from a revised 190,000 the prior week. That’s not going to move a Federal Reserve that only gets more hawkish with each stock-market rally – and that seems hell-bent on driving up unemployment as a means of bringing down inflation. “We believe central banks have finally realized that negative nominal yields have been a very big mistake,” notes Diego Parilla. Parrilla, portfolio manager at Quadriga Asset Managers and the author of "The Anti-Bubbles,” joins Maggie Lake to talk about central banks and the policy divergences among them that could make for historic volatility. We also hear from James Davolos about how to pick stocks in a new, higher-for-longer inflationary regime.
