Goldman now expects four Fed hikes, sees faster runoff in 2022

Goldman now expects four Fed hikes, sees faster runoff in 2022

“We are therefore pulling forward our runoff forecast from December to July, with risks tilted to the even earlier side,” Hatzius said. “With inflation probably still far above target at that point, we no longer think that the start to runoff will substitute for a quarterly rate hike. We continue to see hikes in March, June, and September, and have now added a hike in December.”

The Federal Reserve will probably raise interest costs four times this year and will begin its balance sheet overflow process in July, if not prior, as indicated by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Fast progress in the U.S. labor market and hawkish signs in minutes from the Dec. 14-15 Federal Open Market Committee recommend quicker normalization, Goldman’s Jan Hatzius said in a research note. Goldman’s gauge for the terminal funds rate in unaltered at 2.5%-2.75%.

In its December meeting minutes, Fed officials signaled they are preparing to move quicker than the last time they tightened monetary policy in a bid to keep the U.S. economy from overheating amid high inflation and near-full employment. These conditions — along with a larger balance sheet that’s suppressing longer-term borrowing costs — “could warrant a potentially faster pace of policy rate normalization,” the minutes said.

Officials also saw the timing of reducing the $8.8 trillion balance sheet as likely “closer to that of policy-rate liftoff than in the committee’s previous experience,” according to the minutes.

The U.S. unemployment rate fell below 4% and wages jumped last month, adding to evidence of a tight labor market.

“Even with four hikes, our path for the funds rate is only modestly above market pricing for 2022, but the gap grows significantly in subsequent years,” Hatzius wrote.
