UFOGood morning.
Inflation fears have risen over the past few weeks.  With the amount of new money in circulation up by 25-30 percent over the past year due to the pandemic chasing about the same amount of goods and services, it’s a classic recipe for inflation.
But the lockdowns also created big shifts in consumer trends, which in turn have created a number of supply chain issues.  From toilet paper last year to gasoline this year, shortages can drive up prices faster than money creation can either.
One big jump in prices amidst these supply chain issues?  Container shipping fees.  It’s gone from beyond $4,000 per forty-food equivalent unit to $8,000 to $10,000.  Rising transportation costs threaten to raise the prices of any goods that haven’t risen yet.  That could lead to stagflation, where we see inflation continue to wreak havoc on a slowly-growing economy.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

More Confusion Than Ever
More Confusion Than Ever…

Good morning.
In the Fed minutes on Wednesday, nothing really new was divined about the Fed or the economy.   They stand prepared to buy anything and the economy is a shell of its former self.  Got it.  Investors are goal-seeking to find a way to buy.
For example, rates are going to remain low for a long time because of a weak economy, and so it makes today’s price look more attractive.  Sometimes the irrationality of the market continues much longer than bears can stand, but the trillions at the Fed’s disposal has to go somewhere.

Six Things You Need To Focus On!

I wanted to share 6 areas that I think are key to focus on to make you feel healthier.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  Shockingly, it’s estimated that 3 out of 4 Americans are walking around chronically dehydrated.  This is bad, bad news considering that water makes up 60 – 70% of your body and affects every corner of health and well-being — including metabolism, detoxification, digestion, inflammation, appearance, and cognitive function to name a few.  The solution?  Drink at least 8 – 12 eight-ounce glasses of water per day.

Fill nutritional gaps with a multivitamin.  Like we’ve talked about before, a high-quality multivitamin is like a nutrition insurance policy to make sure that you are getting all the valuable micronutrients you need on a daily basis.  After all, experts agree that there is a nutritional gap between today’s diet and what is required for optimal health, and researchers concur that everyone should be taking a daily multivitamin because it offers safe, simple micronutrient insurance.

Stock your kitchen with all the best tools.  This isn’t as sexy as other fat-burning and metabolism-boosting tips, but if you truly want to eat healthy consistently, you need to make sure you have all the tools you’ll need to prepare meats at home.  For cutting boards, choose wood over plastic.  For pots, pans, and other storage containers, using glass, ceramic, and stainless steel are the best options with the least toxicants.  Other essentials include a pressure cooker and/or slow cooker, blender, and good knives — although we could make a case for about a dozen other kitchen gadgets.

Choose a workout routine and find an accountability partner.  Surely you’ve heard the saying if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Well, that holds true for your fitness regimen as well.  Make sure you have a progressive exercise program that’s appropriate for your fitness level and experience and conducive to your goals.  Also, find an accountability partner — a trainer, friend, spouse, or fellow gym goer — to help keep you on track and to help push yourself.

Know your temptations and aiternatives to satisfy them.  Despite the best-laid plans and good intentions, temptations will strike.  Identify any triggers that you can — time of day, emotions, stress, people, places, etc. — and prepare contingency plans.  One of the biggest keys to overcoming tempta-tion is mindfulness.  Don’t rely on will power alone.  Come up with solutions.  Have healthy snacks handy.  Practice meditation and deep breathing.  Work on distraction techniques (call a friend, write a thank you note, read a book, take a walk).

Commit to a consistent self-care routine.  No matter what you do, make time and space for yourself and a self-care routine.  It’s not selfish.  Investing in yourself means you can serve others more effec-tively and genuinely.  There’s no one-size-fits-all self-care routine.  Consider a gratitude journal, medi-tation, yoga, booking a message, taking a walk, sitting in the sauna, or sunbathing.  Whatever floats your boat and fills up your tank is what’s best!

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
