Q3 2022 Market Review

October 11, 2022

Investors continued to experience market declines in the third quarter of 2022. The last time both stocks and bonds declined for three consecutive quarters was in 19761.


The quarter had progressed nicely until mid-August when inflation data did not show enough improvement and additional interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve became a fast reality with two 75bps increases (July and September) within the quarter. Furthermore, the Fed has signaled plans to lift rates again in November. This means that the odds of a harder landing in the economy have gone up and the future earnings picture has become even more cloudy.


KAR CIO Doug Foreman reviews market performance for the quarter and provides his views on where we go from here.
