Back from the Thanksgiving week holidays. Running on “turkey fumes?” Bleary-eyed from watching football/soccer? Worried the financial markets have had their “year-end rallies” a little too early? YOU SHOULD BE. My calendar shows the year ends in December…….not November. Bear markets can (and will) end the year badly.
To be clear (and I have been for months), interest rates are going higher, inflation is not going to ease significantly and there will be (already is) a recession. The Fed is serious (FINALLY) and is out to crush inflation. Good luck. Wage inflation has not run its course yet (railroads unions?) and the coming recession will be a “doozy.” THAT’S not expected (except here) by the investing world.
The equities markets are going to have the “bottom drop out” (my words). The S&P will not only test the previous lows, but break them. Gold has picked up investors that fled the crypto sector (bitcoin, eth) as a safe haven. The longer lasting high interest rates will bode ill for gold investors. And crypto? Every day there is another “shoe” falling from the massive selloff AND the resulting FTX debacle. What looked like a solid bottom of bitcoin $18K-$20K now looks like a solid bottom at $16K.
If/when the equity markets “tank”, will bitcoin drop to $10K? Will $16K be the “final” bottom? Long term, bitcoin and ETH is where you want to be. In the interim, sit it out and see where things land.
DEAR SANTA, I HAVE BEEN GOOD (AND BULLISH) ALL YEAR. WILL YOU BRING ME A NEW BULL MARKET? CAN YOU MAKE INFLATION GO AWAY? WILL YOU MAKE THE FED STOP RAISING INTEREST RATES? CAN YOU MAKE GOLD BE VIABLE AGAIN?
DEAR BULLISH PERSON. AH NO, HERE’S A LUMP OF COAL.
GO TCU HORNED FROGS……..MY WISH LIST.
