In this video we look at the latest Fed loan officer survey results to see the key trends and insights on loan growth, the economy, and the outlook for stocks. The video walks through a couple of slides of a recent edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report. There are 3 sets of charts: 1. The improving outlook for loan growth as flagged by the US Federal Reserve SLOOS data, and the NACM CMI data which confirms. 2. Signs of a solid economic backdrop and very supportive credit conditions for small businesses. 3. A look at a bear market warning indicator from the Fed survey and also how it ties into US High Yield credit. Overall the conclusions are fairly optimistic, with the senior loan officer opinion survey results and confirming data sources pointing to a positive loan growth, economic growth, and favourable stock market outlook.
