A selloff that saw US stocks sink into a bear market last week amid red-hot inflation data and a sharp Federal Reserve rate hike will likely ease in the second half, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.

“The call of peak Fed hawkishness got delayed, but it is not broken, for the second half,” strategists led by Mislav Matejka wrote in a note. “The continued adverse repricing of the Fed has understandably hurt markets, but that doesn’t need to be the template.” They also expect inflation pressures to ease in the second half.

US and European stock markets have been roiled since April, with stubbornly high inflation and hawkish central banks raising the spectre of recession. The selloff has prompted Wall Street strategists to cut year-end targets for the S&P 500 -- they expect the index to mostly bounce back, ending just 3% lower for the year, according to the latest Bloomberg survey.
