Tackle Today: It’s Fed Day!

December 14, 2022

«More Volatility Inbound.»


The final Fed meeting of the year has arrived. A warning of increased volatility is usually warranted but not this time because volatility is already here! It doesn’t get much crazier than Tuesday’s monster-up gap and whack, so if you handled that okay, you’re probably fine heading into today’s event.

Inflation pressures have eased, so there’s little reason to expect the Fed not to reduce the pace of their rate hikes. Indeed, the odds heavily favor only a 50 basis point hike. Looking out to the next meeting in February shows the market now pricing in a 56% chance of a 25 basis point hike. It will be interesting to see how this changes after Jerome Powell’s press conference.

With the S&P 500 in an uptrend and above all major moving averages heading into the event, the easiest outcome to play is bullish. Thus, that’s the one I’m positioned for.
