October 2021 – Bond Market Review
Oct 13, 2021 | Monthly Review
The ongoing health crisis and related supply chain bottlenecks continue to have a meaningful impact on economic data, but we believe the underlying momentum of the economy remains strong. Economic growth is expected to continue at an above-trend pace, fueled in part by ongoing tailwinds from fiscal support, accommodative monetary policy, and continued progress on vaccinations. Covid infection rates in the US and on a global basis are now declining, but supply chains remain dislocated and inflation readings continue to run hot. We expect supply chain bottlenecks will continue to put upward pressure on prices over the near- to intermediate-term but should improve next year.
