Summary:  50 BPS in March now likely

Good Morning,

“The latest economic data have come in stronger than expected, which suggests that the ultimate level of interest rates is likely to be higher than previously anticipated," was the phrase that shook markets yesterday.

The expectation of a 50 BPS hike on March 22 soared from 20% to 65% and the peak rate rises to 5.65%, 2 year yields rise to above 5%. The USD Index jumps from 104.10 to 105.75.

EURUSD is now at 1.0535, GBPUSD 1.1824 USDJPY 137.66 and Gold and Silver dropped to 1812 and 20.05. Gold is at support level, is we break lower, 1750 would be the next strong level, Silver 18.75.

Equities dropped with the Dow down 1.7% the S&P 500 1.5% and the Nasdaq 1.25%. The Ger40 receded from near 15700 to 15520.

Today’s agenda is thin again except for the Fed`s beige book being released at 20:00. One can assume that the data was known to Powell before yesterday’s speech so I would not expect any disinflationary content.,

Traders will digest the new levels and adjust positions today and focus on the Q&A session with Powell.
