Ray Dalio says to watch out for rates reaching this level, as Wall Street stocks will take a 20% hit.

After the CPI shock earlier in the week, Wall Street is gearing up for a new set of data, including retail sales, Thursday, with an ever-deeper yield curve reversal between 2 and 10 bonds. years that emit increasingly gloomy economic signals. However, there is good news, as a disastrous train strike could be avoided.

There is no billionaire investor and hedge fund manager Ray Dalio than in ours call of the day says the Fed has no choice but to keep raising interest rates, at a high price for the shares.

And he’s putting out some pretty accurate conjectures. “I estimate that a rate hike from where they are to around 4.5% will have a negative impact of around 20% on stock prices,” Dalio said in a LinkedIn post on Tuesday.

Some predict that the Fed could raise interest rates by 100 basis points next week, a move not seen since the 1980s as inflationary. The central bank’s short-term rate fluctuates between 2.25% and 2.5%, but Nomura, for example, sees that the rate has reached 4.75% by 2023.

But Dalio thinks interest rates could even reach the higher end of a 4.5% to 6% range. “This will reduce private sector credit growth, which will reduce private sector spending and therefore the economy along with it,” he says.

Behind this prediction is the belief of the founder of Bridgewater Associates that the market is grossly underestimating where inflation will end: at 2.6% over the next 10 years versus what he sees as 4.5% to 5% at medium term, except for shocks.

As for what happens when people start losing money in the markets – the so-called “wealth effect” – they expect less expense as they and their lenders become more cautious.

“The result is that it seems likely to me that the inflation rate will stay significantly above what the people and the Fed want it to be (while the year-on-year inflation rate will go down), that interest rates will go up, what else. the markets will go down and that the economy will be weaker than expected, regardless of the worsening trends of internal and external conflicts and their effects. “
