Daily Brief - The importance of dry powder


Today we will get a rake hike from the Fed. The chance of a super-sized 0.75% rate hike is being debated after the WSJ first floated the idea.

The response from the market to a super-hike is hard to predict. It could drop fearing a recession, or rally in relief as it sees a Fed that is “in control”.

‘What do I do with my cash’ remains the most common topic of discussion amongst Toggle users and our investors.

With 4 more hikes and quantitative tightening on the horizon, staying in cash is a legit alternative.


The power of dry powder

Are you investing for the long run? Then staying in cash for a quarter or two might not be such a bad idea.

Make no mistake, doing so means you believe markets will reach lower. You are exchanging a few quarters of return for the chance to buy value down the line.

However considering the joint effect of QT and 3-4 additional super hikes*, it is a fair bet to assume markets will heave and pitch, and offer us further downside entry points.

But how can I stay in cash with high inflation?

Inflation bites all assets, so forget about it.

The question you need to ask yourself is whether cash will outperform equities, treasuries, commodities, crypto or whatever is your favoured asset class.

As we wind down the “everything bubble”, markets will have a lot of retracement to do.

But how will I know when to buy?

Look for some anchors like 2.5% on US corporate bonds or 14x P/E for S&P 500. You will have skipped pain and market swings, and will have a clear path ahead of you.

* by “super hike” we mean rate hikes of 0.5%, which are double the usual steady 0.25% pace used by the Fed in the last decades.


Staying in cash is a legitimate investment decision. As markets will continue to swing, cash-holders will be the ones to pick the best deals once the dust settles.
