  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In a recent interview, DoubleLine's Jeffrey Gundlach discussed the possibility of the Federal Reserve having to backtrack on its plan for further interest rate hikes. Gundlach raised doubts about the Fed's confidence in the economy, suggesting that upcoming economic data could reveal weakening conditions. He compared the Fed's rate hikes to a man attempting to swim across the Niagara River. Just like the man who boasted about swimming across the English Channel but drowned in the strong currents of the Niagara River, Gundlach believes the Fed might find itself in a vulnerable position if economic conditions worsen. This article explores Gundlach's views on the Fed's potential capitulation and its implications for the stock market and economy.

  • You don't think, forgive me for interrupting you, but you don't think that, you know, if you get to 42 or 4,300 on the S&P, and as you said, the storm has passed, at least the first storm, you don't think the Fed's going to say,
  • You see, we can do it.
  • We can keep going.
  • The stock market is fine.
  • The economy is still OK. We put out a fire and we did it relatively quickly.
  • And if there's another flare up, we'll just do it again.
  • They may feel that way, but it's a ways till the next meeting.
  • And we have a couple of employment reports coming out.
  • I think the next meeting is May 3rd.
  • There probably isn't an employment report because that would be on a Wednesday.
  • So the employment report would be on the 5th.
  • But there's going to be some economic data.
  • And the way things are going, I expect the economic data to be weakening.
  • And so I'm not so sure the Fed's going to be able to feel like, you know, we've pulled this off because the economy has been deteriorating for quite some time.
  • And I don't think it's very logical to assume that that trend is going to continue.
  • So I just don't think the Fed, I think the Fed kind of halfheartedly raised rates.
  • It reminds me of the old story I tell about this guy, the guy that swam across the English Channel, the first guy to swim across the English Channel, went to western New York and saw these amazing rapids in Niagara Falls.
  • And he made a boast that he could swim across it.
  • And he actually, the reporters came and he actually did jump in down in the lower gorge of the Niagara River.
  • And he was seen flailing his arms and legs a little bit.
  • And then they found his dead body six miles down the river.
  • He had to do it because he bragged about it and just wanted to save face.
  • I sort of felt like, and I talked about this two weeks ago, that's kind of what it felt like to me, was where the Fed was at in the press conference last week.
  • So I don't think they're very braggadocious about or highly confident in what was not plot out there and still remain out in 2024.
  • I think they're going to have to capitulate.
  • Well, May 3rd, we're going to find out.
  • And the good news is we're going to be together again right after that Fed decision.
  • So I can't wait for that.
  • Keep your calendar open for me.
  • OK.
