"The record-high inflation of 5% in the Eurozone, following the inflation patterns in the US, is emerging as a big challenge to central banks internationally," VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, said. With the ECB and other top central banks, especially those in emerging countries, turning to tighten mode, there is now a clear probability of three rate hikes by the Fed in 2022." He noted that the rise in the US 10-year yield to 1.76 percent and the strengthening of the US dollar are indicators of equities market headwinds.
