Swedish rate hike jolts stocks as Wall Street turns to Fed

09/20/2022 | 08:15am EST

* Swedish central bank hikes by 1 percentage point

* Dollar steady near two-decade highs

* Fed, BoE and Swiss central banks eyed

* German bond yields highest since 2011

* Demand for Porsche listing strong

* U.S. 2-year bond yield highest since 2007

LONDON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Stocks fell on Tuesday ahead of more interest rate increases from central banks to cool decades-high inflation, with Sweden leading a round of anticipated hefty hikes from its U.S., Swiss and British counterparts later in the week.

Shares in Europe turned lower by mid-session after U.S. stock futures eased, with the Federal Reserve kicking off a two-day meeting.

The dollar was near a two-decade high versus major peers, underpinned by expectations that the Fed will unveil another large rate increase when its meeting ends on Wednesday.

Crude oil prices were steady, but euro zone bond yields hit new multi-year highs as German producer prices rose in August at their strongest rate since records began, stoking worries about even higher inflation.

U.S. stock futures were down about 0.35%.

The STOXX index of 600 European companies gave up initial gains to ease 0.5%, compounding a 16% slide for the year as fallout from war in Ukraine and rising inflation and borrowing costs fuel recession fears.

Sweden's central bank hiked rates by a greater than expected full percentage point on Tuesday and warned of more to come, a stark reminder for investors that tackling inflation remains a work in progress for many central banks.

Hikes from the Bank of England and Swiss central bank are expected on Thursday, piling more pressure on stock markets.

"Tighter monetary policy around the world will increase the headwinds for risk assets - after all, central bankers are deliberately trying to slow aggregate demand," ING bank said.

Markets are priced for U.S. rates to climb as high as 4.5% by early 2023, compared with the Fed's current 2.25%-2.5% policy rate range.

Luca Paolini, chief strategist at Pictet Asset Management, said the U.S. central bank would likely ease the pace of hikes going into next year.

"The market, in a way, is probably expecting a peak in rates," Paolini said, adding that market focus would then switch to how higher rates were affecting economies and company earnings.

"We haven't seen it yet fully, I believe, as significant downgrade in earnings which I think will come. The downside for bonds is limited," Paolini said.

Inverted yield curves or long-term interest rates below short-term rates, were also a red flag historically to buying shares, he added.

On a more positive note for stocks, the books for Volkswagen's hotly anticipated initial public offering of Porsche AG on Sept. 29 are covered multiple times over.


China's central bank kept its benchmark lending rates unchanged at a monthly fixing on Tuesday, as expected.

The other exception is the Bank of Japan, also due to meet this week and which has shown no sign of abandoning its ultra-easy yield curve policy despite a drastic slide in the yen and inflation hitting its fastest pace in eight years.

"Just because nobody expects anything coming from Japan, the central bank there could be the more interesting one this week because any hint they are going to change anything could have massive implications for the yen," Paolini said.

Share trading resumed in Japan on Tuesday after a national holiday. The Nikkei advanced 0.4%, with technology stocks largely driving the climb.

China's blue-chip CSI300 index was 0.12% higher while Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rose 1.2%.

Sentiment in Hong Kong was also boosted after the government flagged that change to its COVID-19 hotel quarantine policy for all arrivals was coming soon, saying it wanted an "orderly opening-up".

Higher interest rates and continued high inflation have caused a sell-off in government bonds.

The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes was at 3.5493%.

The two-year U.S. yield, a barometer of future inflation expectations, traded at 3.9664% after climbing to its highest since November 2007.

Higher U.S. Treasury yields have helped strengthen the dollar and made gold less attractive.

The dollar index, which measures the currency against six counterparts, was 0.31% stronger at 109.890.

Spot gold was traded at $1,667 per ounce, down 0.5%

U.S. crude was flat at $85.80 a barrel. Brent crude was also little changed at $92.09 per barrel.
