Investors should be ready to fade a rally ahead of the federal government shutdown deadline, Newedge Senior Director and U.S. Credit, Equity and Policy Strategist Larry McDonald said Wednesday.
"I don't think we get a shutdown," he said.
Instead, McDonald said on CNBC's "Fast Money, " a funding deal will be reached on Capitol Hill on Monday.
"The market should rally Friday into that because the market always figures that out first," he added. Then, investors should fade the rally into the debt-ceiling battle that will likely see concessions from President Obama on the Affordable Care Act.

"The president's going to cave on the individual mandate," McDonald said, noting that Obama had conceded on the corporate mandate and adding that he would also give in on the Keystone XL pipeline.
"And that's the beginning of a grand bargain, which is very, very bullish," he added.

McDonald said that bonds would likely rally a bit more and then start to fade into mid-October.
The U.S. Treasury Department estimated that it would run out of cash Oct. 17.
McDonald also said that increased volatility was to be expected.
"We think we get a pump in vol between Monday and the 15th," he said. "You're not going to get this out of the president until you really squeeze him, and he's going to squeeze back. So, I don't think we get a deal until the 16th, 17th of October."
