More and more, the markets are looking for a sign – any sign at all – that the Federal Reserve is ready to back off of its aggressive course of interest rate hikes. Investors are so desperate that they’ll interpret just about anything the Fed says, or even what they didn’t say, as a green light to start buying equities again.

No matter what silver lining analysts mention to lessen the blow to semiconductor sentiment, I wouldn’t recommend bottom-picking at this time.
It was supposed to be a new era of wind farms and solar panels replacing fossil fuels in the U.S. and globally, a time when “green and clean” power sources would eliminate the need for oil and natural gas. That was a fantasy from two years ago that is now crashing headfirst into a cold, harsh reality.

In the event of an attack on Crimea, Medvedev was quoted by TASS that Judgment Day will come very fast and hard. It will be very difficult to hide.
It’s a grim market metaphor: even a dead cat will bounce if it falls out of a tree. Applied to the financial markets, this means that a seemingly “alive” rally might just be a temporary one or a head-fake within the context of a larger bear market.
OPEC delivered insult to injury when whining and weaponization narratives were truncated with the demonstrative slash of a verbal scimitar.
Stairs up, elevator down – that’s how the markets are supposed to function, right?

Are you able to change with the times, and take advantage of frustrating, unpredictable stock and commodity price moves?
So, it looks like the Federal Reserve is finally achieving what it set out to do: raise interest rates and shrink its balance sheet until something breaks. Perhaps they didn’t count on multiple things breaking at once, however, and a systemic collapse far beyond what the Fed had intended.
Western leadership is marching into war “with willful ignorance, naivety, and sticking their collective heads in the sand, unwilling to see the threats.”
Is bad news good news now, or is it just bad? It’s harder than ever to navigate today’s markets as the Federal Reserve engineers an economic slowdown and vulnerable businesses capitulate – yet, the career politicians refuse to acknowledge that we’re actually in a recession.
There’s a good chance they landed into a bottoming zone due to geopolitical and monetary policy actions that surfaced over the last week.
As the stock market tests and breaks below the June lows, staggering financial losses feel sudden and painful. Yet, this event was years in the making, the final shoe dropping as one central bank policy error has led to another all to come crashing down at the worst possible time.
