Macroeconomic pressures characterized the market during the third quarter of 2022, as investors and issuers continue to grapple with a rising rate environment. Treasury and MMD yields continue to rise from the pandemic-era lows and the Federal Reserve Board has indicated it will maintain its aggressive monetary policy tightening until inflationary pressures are in check. Consensus estimates expect eight rate hikes during the remainder of 2022 and through 2023 to an implied rate of 4.97 percent by year end 2023.
