2 Question Tuesday – 08/01/2023 – After Strong GDP Report, Is This A Risk-On Environment & Do You Anticipate Another Rate Hike This Year?

Welcome to 2 Question Tuesday. This week’s client submitted questions were:

  1. After the strong GDP report, is this a risk-on environment?
  2. Do you anticipate the Fed raising interest rates again this year?

Phil, Mike, and Larry discuss how last week’s strong GDP report caused economists to re-evaluate their projections for a recession and it looks like the U.S. is returning a Goldilocks economy that is neither too hot nor too cold. Does this mean this is a risk-on environment and that investors should put all their money to work? They then address how the strong GDP and lowered expectations for a recession may be working against the Fed’s efforts to reduce inflation, leaving open the possibility of another rate hike this year.
