El-Erian warns of premature optimism for Fed rate cuts

NEW YORK - Mohamed El-Erian, a prominent economist, expressed concern during a CNBC interview today about the recent behavior of financial markets, which have seen an easing of conditions due to expectations of Federal Reserve policy changes.

El-Erian highlighted the significant fall in the 10-year Treasury yield , which dropped from a peak of 5% in late October to just below 4.3%, fueling a rally in stock indices such as the S&P 500 , which jumped nearly 9% through November.

Despite this market optimism, El-Erian cautioned against the assumption that the Fed will implement rate reductions starting in March and continue with multiple subsequent cuts. He emphasized that unless there is clear evidence pointing towards an economic downturn, such expectations may be misguided.

El-Erian advised vigilance ahead of upcoming inflation data releases. He warned that these figures might not support the optimistic projections currently priced into markets and could potentially disappoint investors who are expecting a continuation of positive trends.
