JPMorgan Chase & Co. strategist Marko Kolanovic reiterated Monday that investors should fade last week’s Federal Reserve-induced stock-market rally, arguing that the US economy’s disinflationary process could just be “transitory.” 

Kolanovic sees the first three months of the year likely marking an “inflection point in the market,” with an air pocket during the second and third quarters, he wrote in a note to clients. That will be followed by renewed deterioration in fundamentals through the end of the year since the central bank will likely keep interest rates high for some time, he added.
