Stock Market: CAC 40, LVMH, Hermès, M6, TotalEnergies, Airbus, Air Liquide… in Momentum this week

CAC 40, DAX, Dow Jones, Nasdaq… The past week should be forgotten by the stock markets as the world’s largest central banks “continue their fantastic road to tackling inflation,” notes La Banque Postale Asset Management (LBPAM). , who believes that “the race to tighten monetary policy can be called historic in its scope and speed.” In September, the central banks of the US (Fed), Eurozone (ECB), Great Britain (Bank of England), Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand really significantly increased their rates.

First of all, the Fed’s rate hike “must continue,” LBPAM stresses.

Beware of a continuation of the uptrend in long-term rates

Upward pressure should remain on interest rates. According to LBPAM, “there is no ambiguity about the direction of monetary policy in the coming months: the (rate) hike will not only continue, but will happen at a rapid pace,” while the Fed “wants to move on.” move quickly to a monetary policy that is clearly restrictive” (therefore positive real rates, which is what the central bank is aiming for by 2023).

Recession Risk and Earnings Warnings for Listed Companies

And stocks continue to worry. For LBPAM, the riskiest assets (including equities) remain “at risk in this very unfavorable environment.” Given the scale of monetary tightening and the economic slowdown already underway, “the risk is indeed in a much worse economic environment,” warns the asset manager, for whom a recession is the most likely scenario and a reversal is expected in the coming months or in 2023.

Will it strengthen Russia in this war or weaken Vladimir Putin?” asks LBPAM.
