Yesterday we had an afternoon market sell-off on hawkish comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.

The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield on Friday neared 3% as the short end of the yield curve saw the 5-year top that level as Powell confirmed what many other Fed officials have said lately that interest rates may need to be increased at a stronger pace to fight inflation. During an International Monetary Fund panel discussion Thursday, the Fed chief said that “50 basis points will be on the table for the May meeting.” The central bank raised rates by 25 basis points at its March meeting, the first hike in more than three years. The market expects rate increases at each of the remaining six meetings in 2022.

U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are lower and Asian markets ended mostly lower.
