When Economists get news they don’t want to hear

The problem with predictions and ego

Pickup and economists research note from the past month and it’s likely to say the same thing — the Fed is going to hike in June.

Everyone is singing from the same hymnbook. The problem is that the Fed is the piano player and yesterday changed its tune. This is the line in the FOMC Minutes:

“Members generally judged that it would be prudent to await additional evidence indicating that the recent slowing in the pace of economic activity had been transitory before taking another step in removing accommodation.”

That can’t be misunderstood.

What it says is that if economic data continues to be soft, they’re not hiking in June.

That doesn’t mean that a hike is off the table but it certainly means that it’s not a sure thing.

Here are a few data points since the May 3 meeting:

  • Q1 nonfarm productivity -0.6% vs -0.1% exp
  • Factory orders +0.2% vs +0.4% exp
  • Nonfarm payrolls 211K vs 190K exp
  • Avg hourly earnings 2.5% vs 2.7% y/y exp
  • JOLTS 5743K vs 5725K exp
  • Core PPI +0.7% vs +0.2% exp
  • CPI +2.2% y/y vs +2.3% exp
  • Retail sales control group +0.2% vs +0.4%
  • Empire Fed -1.0 vs +7.5 exp
  • NAHB housing market index 70 vs 68 exp
  • Housing starts 1172K vs 1260K exp
  • Building permits 1229K vs 1270K exp
  • Industrial production +1.0% vs +0.4%

Algerian oil minister loses his job during the OPEC meeting

Algeria cabinet shuffle takes place during meeting

Algerian oil minister Noureddine Boutarfa was informed that he will be replaced midway through today’s OPEC meeting.

As part of broader cabinet changes, Boutarfa was replaced by Sonelgaz CEO Mustapha Guitouni as energy minister. The moves follow a May 4 election.

The change is a loss for OPEC as Boutarfa was seen as a mediator and dealmaker. He was pivotal in brokering the initial OPEC/non-OPEC deal.
