Ray Dalio says watch for rates hitting this level as Wall Street stocks set to take a 20% plunge – MarketWatch | Jewelry Dukan

After that CPI shock earlier in the week, Wall Street is gearing up for a fresh set of data Thursday, including retail sales, with a deepening yield curve inversion between 2- and 10-year bonds sending increasingly gloomy economic signals. There is good news, however, as a catastrophic rail strike could be averted.

There is no billionaire investor and hedge fund manager Ray Dalio in our call of the day claims that the Fed has no choice but to keep raising interest rates at a high price for stocks.

And he’s making pretty precise guesses. “My guess is that if interest rates go from where they are to about 4.5%, it will have about a 20% negative impact on stock prices,” Dalio said in a LinkedIn post Tuesday.

Some are predicting that the Fed could hike rates by 100 basis points next week, a move not seen since the also inflationary 1980s. The central bank’s short-term interest rate has fluctuated between 2.25% and 2.5%, but Nomura, for example, sees that rate rising to 4.75% by 2023.

But Dalio believes interest rates could even reach the top end of a 4.5% to 6% range. “This will reduce private sector credit growth, which will bring down private sector spending and thus the economy,” he says.

Behind this forecast is the Bridgewater Associates founder’s belief that the market is grossly underestimating where inflation will end up over the next 10 years — at 2.6% over the next 10 years versus 4.5% to 5% over the medium term, excluding from shocks.

What happens when people lose money in the markets – the so-called “wealth effect” – he expects less spending as they and their lenders become more cautious.

“The upshot is that I think it’s likely that the inflation rate will stay well above what the people and the Fed want (while the inflation rate will fall year-on-year), that interest rates will rise, the other that the markets will collapse and the economy will be weaker than expected, without taking into account the worsening trends in internal and external conflicts and their impact.”
