Big Fed Hike and S&P 500 Rallies, Will It Persist After Another Through GDP’s Recession Risks?


Recommended Posts

As John Kicklightrer pointed out:

10-Yr yield reflects the economic outlook, as a growth measure tool.

The 2-Yr yield reflects the Interest rates moves.

WHEN THE SPREAD INVERTS A RECESSION CAN BE MORE LIKELY.

SO, HOW DID WE GET TO HIGHER INFLATION?

Most economists and financiers forget that IT IS THE MONEY SUPPLY THAT GOVERNS FUTURE INFLATION LEVELS. The FED knows this yet it does the opposite to its control, by having QE for a very long time. Maybe they think they are the gods of the economy..... yet they cannot foretell the effects of QE beforehand or they are trying out a desperate measure to create growth by more and more flooding the market with excess fiat money, WAY BEYOND THE GOODS AND SERVICES DELIVERED.

IT IS BACKWARD THINKING TO THINK GREATER GROWTH WILL OCCUR AND MAGICALLY MAKE THE ECONOMY DO WELL.  YOU CAN LIKEN IT TO GIVING A JUNKY **** MORE AND MORE, TO KEEP HIM HIGH IN AN ILLUSION, THUS KILLING HIM EVENTUALLY. OR, YOU STOP IT AND HE SUFFERS FROM THE WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS WHICH NO ONE SEEMS TO WANT TO CONFRONT AND DO, TO GET HIM OUT OF THAT ADDICTION.

EITHER WAY, IT WAS THE INCORRECT ACTION, OF FEEDING THAT **** IN THE FIRST PLACE. FOR US, THAT MEANS THE OVER-SUPPLY OF THE MONEY. THIS HAS INFLATED MOST THINGS TO EXTREME LEVELS, E.G., STOCKS, COMMODITIES, HOUSE PRICES, ETC.. MOST OF THIS MONEY WAS NOT USED FOR INVESTING BACK INTO DEVELOPING NEW GOODS, NEW DEVELOPMENTS OR BETTER CASH FLOWS AND CASH LEVELS WITH COMPANIES.

MARKETS BOOMING DO NOT REFLECT CORRECTLY A RISING ECONOMY. WE HAD AN ECONOMY GDP THAT HAS AVERAGED LESS  IN THIS BULL MARKET (WHICH HAD REACRED HIGHEST EVER VALUATONS) THAN IN PREVIOUS BULL PHASES AND ECONOMIC GROWTH CYCLES.

EXCESS MONEY HAS GONE INTO THE STOCKS, SHARE BUYBACKS, AND ULTRA LOW RATES HAVE ENCOURAGED HUGE DEBT BUILD-UP WITH COMPANIES, GOVERNMENTS, HIGHEST-EVER MARGIN-DEBTS, EXCESSIVE BETS IN THE MARKETS, WORSE ILLIQUIDITY-BUILD-UP WITH BANKS. WHY, THE FED WAS HAPPY TO CREATE ALL THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR.

LATER ON THE FED IS LIKELY TO SAY: 'Oh, we did not know this would happen', OR, 'this was an experiment', OR,  'this was too complex to see the outcome' OR, 'All central banks have done the same so we all are suffering the same -- not our fault, mate' (i.e., don't take responsibility and resign, and not change any theories we use) etc...

IF ANY SUCH EXCUSES APPEARS ( as similar ones have in past phases ), THEN WHY ARE THEY IN BUSINESS?

THEY CANNOT CONTROL THE ECONMY WELL, AS ALL BOOMS AND BURSTS HAVE SHOWN; AND HUGE LOSS OF PURCHASING POWER HAS SHOWN; AND AS THE TRILLIONS LOST ON EACH CYCLE BY BUSINESSES; AND EVEN THE GENERAL PUBLIC HAVE LOSSES HAVE SHOWN. RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, NOT TALK.

WHEN WILL PEOPLE, COMPANIES AND BANKERS WAKE UP FROM THEIR ILLUSIONS OF BEING EXPERTS WHO "KNOW", YET CANNOT HANDLE OR CONTROL IT?

IN ECOMONICS THEY ARE FINE LAWS WE DO KNOW BUT THEY ARE ABUSIVELY USED. ALSO THERE ARE CHANGING VARIABLES AND EVENTS THAT JUST CANNOT BE PREDICTED IN ANY MODELS. CURRENT FUTURE IS NOT GOOD.

TIME FOR A CHANGE? ARE YOU READY TO CHANGE YOUR PRACTICES AND THEORIES?

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
