August proved to be a negative month for many risk assets as investors weighed evidence of slowing economic activity and hawkishness of central banks. With inflation remaining high, albeit amid some suggestions it may be peaking, sovereign yields continued to rise. Although the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank did not meet in August, 31 other central banks raised interest rates, including the Bank of England. Fed Chair Jerome Powell was clear about its intentions in stating that it “must keep at it until the job is done”.
Short-term rates also rose in this environment. Reflecting the likelihood of further hikes in the near term, cash rates advanced through the month. The ECB faces a challenging situation of very high gas prices due to Russia supply cuts, which are feeding inflation and threatening growth.
