Face masks!Good morning.
Inflation fears are starting to subside.  One key reason?  A push to curb commodity prices.  China has already cracked down on commodity buying and trading, akin to the moves made to keep retail investors from buying GameStop (GME) shares back in February.  (Spoiler: That’s not working out so well.)
But all the stops are being pulled out.  News that Iran’s oil supply could return to world markets (or at least off the black market), has helped keep oil prices from surging even higher.  Even news that housing prices could start coming down in the next few quarters was greeted as a sign of declining inflation, rather than with the fear that would normally accompany such news.  While most commodities are getting crushed, gold prices continue to tick higher, indicating that this story isn’t over yet.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Confusion ... What ConfusionGood morning.
I hope you all had a great long weekend and had an opportunity to visit family and become connected with loved ones that have passed on.  The open on Tuesday looked so promising going into the cash open, but immediately started wilting and never regained its overnight footing.
It was a unique session in that tech behemoths were lower, and financials shined.  As a result, it was a mixed picture on the S&P 500 as it finished 1.23% higher with the VIX also rising on the session.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

#1.  In the race for a COVID-19 cure…  Maybe this bit of news has been the most unexpected.  Scientists believe they’ve uncovered strains of cannabis that could combat the coronavirus.  Yes!  True.  Researchers at Canada’s University of Lethbridge, who have been studying cannabis for about 4-years to determine its possible therapeutic uses, recently decided to test its effects on the potential human body’s response to COVID-19.
Based on what appears to be a very preliminary study, Olga and Igor Kovalchuk – the married pair of scientists who hatched this idea – recently told a few Canadian media outlets that they were “totally stunned” …then “really happy” with the outcome.

#2.  Nobody’s talkin’ about it yet.  So most Americans still have absolutely no clue what’s actually going on.  But what’s happening in D.C., right now will result in the most dramatic Presidential election of our generation…
See, I think the panic we’re seeing, along with the economic turmoil that’s growing, creates an ideal scenario for a Socialist to eventually win the White House.
That’s because when the rich – a very small percentage of the population – get in trouble with debt, it’s an economic problem.  But when the poor and middle class – a HUGE percentage of the population – get in trouble with debt, it’s a political problem.
THIS is what the 2020 Election and every election for the foreseeable future will be all about…
So please – pay close attention to what I’m telling you today.  (If you’re an American), you have to take action personally to protect yourself from what’s right around the corner.  And you have to do it now – today – while the method of saving yourself are still cheap, easy, and legal.

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.
