Video Transcript

BRIAN SOZZI: Yahoo Finance’s Jared Blikre is standing by on the New York Inventory Trade for us. Jared, I might say an attention-grabbing response to these Powell feedback. It continues to play out within the markets.

JARED BLIKRE: Excuse us whereas we get located, however I am wanting on the S&P 500. I’ve stated this too many instances as a result of we’re again down at what appears to be like to be essential assist proper now. We acquired liftoff. We broke via a buying and selling vary. After which we acquired an enormous reversal on a few of these feedback yesterday, saying the employment– that is Powell. The employment market, the job market is just too scorching. All proper, simply take into consideration that. That is an unbelievable factor to say. So it is not simply 50 foundation factors for the subsequent three or 4 conferences. We’re additionally speaking about quantitative tightening. And all of that has to do with volatility and what that is going to do to the market.

I have been saying for a while now, and let’s check out the VIX, a little bit bit elevated right here. However one other factor that we discuss can also be the VVIX. That’s the volatility of the VIX. We additionally talked in regards to the MOVE index. That’s what occurs within the bond market. So the VVIX, for those who check out what’s occurred during the last 10 years, has been elevated because the Fed started– excuse me– increasing its stability sheet once more. It is nearly like a brand new regular that we have now by way of volatility right here.

What occurs when the Fed places belongings on its stability sheet? It would not hedge them. And in order that sucks volatility out of the market. These have been belongings that in any other case would have been hedged. So you set all of it collectively, my largest concern is not the 50 foundation factors going ahead and even 75. It’s that quantitative tightening.

And one closing be aware right here on the Japanese yen, that has been considered one of my go-to markets to trace, the Japanese yen versus the Chinese language yuan. All proper, the Chinese language yuan has been– excuse me– weakening, but in addition strengthening on a periodic foundation. So the Chinese language yuan has been strengthening for years. And now it appears to be like like it could be set for an easing cycle. I have been warning in regards to the Financial institution of China probably doing that. So, all the things coming collectively. We’ve central banks draining liquidity from the system. And I am afraid that the folks in cost right here simply do not perceive the implications of that.

JULIE HYMAN: Effectively, let’s discuss what’s taking place elsewhere as nicely by way of how all these progress issues are feeding via. In China, specifically, we have now been seeing fairly a sell-off this week.

JARED BLIKRE: Sure, we have now. The information is simply incrementally unhealthy on all fronts. I imply, we had Didi popping out earlier within the week, saying that they did not know in the event that they have been going to withstand in any explicit market after they delist in the USA. That is an enormous assertion of non-confidence, I assume I might say, within the capital markets. Here is a chart of Didi International down 63% yr so far.

We have had the Chinese language authorities popping out at varied instances and simply form of knocked the market down. They’ve propped it up, to an extent. We have seen them come by with liquidity injections, nevertheless it hasn’t been sufficient to just about stem the tide of cash out of those sectors. You check out what’s occurred yr so far right here. I will put an equal weighted foundation so we are able to see a few of the largest underperformers.

We’re seeing lots of these shares down 50%, 60% even, and that is solely yr so far. You check out what’s occurred on a one-year foundation, a few of these shares down over 90%. So this has simply been an absolute catastrophe for lots of those shares. And it is going to stick in buyers’ psyches for an extended time frame. And perhaps it ought to. Possibly this is not the rising market to be in.

BRIAN SOZZI: Jared, what is going on on down there on the flooring? You are getting run over.

JARED BLIKRE: I do know. Effectively, we have got a giant tour that has landed proper round station 8 right here, so I assume, what? We acquired to share the ground. That is in all probability the way it regarded again within the day, I acquired to say, besides the ground is much more clear now. There would have been much more ticker tapes all over the place. However however, you already know, it is good to have firm down right here. Some days, there’s not so many individuals.

BRIAN SOZZI: Effectively, as my mother has at all times stated, sharing is caring. Jared Blikre, thanks a lot. Keep secure down there.
