RBC Doubles Down: “The Slightest Fed Disappointment Could Rock Us”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Just in case RBC’s earlier warning that even a trace of hawkishness from the Fed after today’s disappointing CPI report was a major risk, moments ago RBC’s Charlie McElligott doubled down on his warning, and in a note to client said that the entire investing world now feels completely justified in coming into today with ‘dovish hike’ expectations. However, as he adds, “the issue there is that it sets a VERY fine-line on messaging, where you have such consensual expection of ‘dovish hike’ that the slightest disappointment in this view could rock us.

His thoughts:

IF the Fed were to somehow ‘screw-up’ this very simply ‘soft-ball’ messaging task and come off as anything resembling ‘hawkish’--perhaps by again attempting to use the term ‘transitory’ to describe what are ‘outright collapsing’ inflation expectations—the market murmur of ‘Fed policy error’ grows exponentially.   And believe me, I get it that we still have a lot of economic positives going for us.  But the market is focused on inflation.

And as per this morning’s note, this would be the ‘2nd scenario’ I talked about towards the bottom of the piece--a broader de-risking interpretation largely based upon a view that the Fed has truly painted itself into corner here.  

If they continue to push ‘tightening’ under ‘transitory inflation weakness’--when now we are confirmed as GETTING SOFTER, period--we could get that ‘de-risk’ where folks actually ‘gross-down’ (GASP, LOL).  In that case, it won’t just be ‘cyclicals’ being sold further….but outright ‘longs’ too….especially when looking at cycle-high gross- and net- exposures.

That’s the ‘policy error’ interpretation, and it’s entirely dependent upon today’s Fed guidance.  The market will NEED to hear them state plainly / upgrade the tone of the concern / clearly message that they are ‘watching inflation closely’ to assuage these fears.
