The Taylor Market Report (3/7/23)
Inflation is going higher. Interest rates are going higher. I've sat through this movie before (1970's and 1980-81), and it does not end well.

The definition of artificial is used figuratively to describe something as being faked, phony, or contrived The definition of intelligence is....smart. So, if the quant financial programs are using AI, are they "fake smart"?

Morgan Stanley announced stocks could decline 25%, real estate sales are beginning to plunge, inflation didn't go "poof" away. The bright spot is in the bitcoin/ethereum corner
The Taylor Market Report (2/14/23)
Remember the rock song "I fought the law and the law won?" How about........"I fought the Fed and the Fed won." Don't fight the Fed. They are taking money out of the system.
The Taylor Market Report (2/7/23)
Not many people in the financial markets today have experienced a true bear market (1970's type). These markets are not going to be kind to those who choose to ignore the Fed.
The Taylor Report (1/31/23)
It seems celebrating a 5% inflation rate (if you don't eat, drive, live or leave the house) is really cool. IT'S NOT! I know I've mentioned this before but, RECESSIONS ARE NOT BULLISH!
The Taylor Report (1/24/23)
Inflation is still high. Commodities are ticking up again. As far as I know, the Fed is still raising rates and employment layoffs are gaining momentum. And that pesky recession looms larger.
The Taylor Report (1/17/23)
Sorry bulls. Recessions are NOT bullish. Higher rates are NOT bullish. Uncertainty is NOT bullish. Real estate weakening is NOT bullish. Wake up and smell the reality. S&P 500 (equities) drop anther 20%.
The Taylor Report (1/10/23)
Inflation is like a New Year's resolution. You put on 50 lbs. eating too much. You resolve to lose weight, you drop 25 lbs, but you are still 25 lbs. heavier. Inflation eases to 6.5% from almost 8%. It's not bullish.....and you're still overweight.
The Taylor Report (1/3/23)
Like the disclaimers say, "the past is not indicative of future results." That is certainly true in a bear market. Markets can, and do, go down longer then people believe.
