    "Powell likely going to have to raise interest rates."

    Yes. As inflation increases, the way to curb it is through raising interest rates. The fed originally stated that rates weren't going to rise until at least 2022. However, it seems that we may see a rate increase sooner than expected.

    No more stimulus, everyone has to go back to work, it will cost $70 to fill your tank, prices for all goods are going up but markets are at all time highs! Hmmm, strange times. If it seems too good to be true...

    Here’s a tidbit about inflation. If, in 1970, you invested $100 in the S & P in 1970 by 2021 you would have a nominal value of $17,811.95. But if you account for inflation, the value of your money in your pocket in 2021 would be only $2,502.41. During those fifty years the CPI went from $38.80 to $267.05. That’s why many still squirm when inflation is mentioned. From 1970 to 1985, nobody but Warren Buffett made money in the stock market. That’s the last war many still fight because it was brutal. Of course, it’s been a fiscal paradise lately and new eyes see no chance of revisiting the seventies.

    Anybody else notice that the bid/ask spread is widening for stocks? Does that mean liquidity is starting to dry up? I don’t need to tell you that would be an ominous signal. Of course the cost of carry has risen slightly which would influence market makers and that might be the reason. Anyway, it’s just another note of caution.

    Good morning from Japan.
    The daily chart is a bearish divergence of RSI-7 and Stochastic Oscillator.
    This is also a chart that I want to sell strongly.

    I hope that everyone has read Chapter 1 & 2 from the book "The Intelligent Investor" on Investment vs. Speculation & Inflation. You will understand where the market currently is and what will happen in the near future with increasing inflation and eventual increase in interest rates.

    Jerry said it and it’s true: it’s OK when stocks don’t go up every day. But, the intrusion of inflation is another matter. The TIPS bond is now bumping into its all-time high. This is a Treasury issue that monitors the CPI. Please watch that metric. And make adjustments as you see fit. Food and energy are really not in the CPI and we know they are running at 8%. Stocks are generally not hurt by rising inflation as long as the companies have pricing flexibility. Bonds are creamed. And the discount factor for future earnings rises which means a lower entry point for companies called growth stocks. The pattern for oil stocks is highly cyclical but as the price rises the oil in the ground also rises. Commodities have the eventual delivery action but silver is interesting. Any funds that require liquidity to trade like ARKK, will suffer should the Fed be stirred to act to sop up liquidity.

Just think what will happen when New York drops make restrictions!! And Europe fully re-opens!! If anyone thinks now is a good time to short the market, then you need to ask for a refund on the options trading course you bought off YouTube.

    Hi Guys, I’m pretty new to investing and reading through different articles to gain knowledge. I’ve invested small amount in VOO which is Vanguard S&P 500. Can someone please lead me to understand the difference between this particular stock?

    Drops 3-5 % are normal and healthy- not the end of your financial life. Watch the signs, adjust your portfolio according to your age, and CALM DOWN everyone. So if there’s a 15% pullback which a lot of money on the sides has been waiting for, they will get in at that point and the market will increase. Bonds - do inflation protected or short term for now or cash.Inflation bump is supposedly temporary and expected. Economy really opening this summer. Still first year of presidency. Historically + for markets. Forecast for end 2021 is S&P 4400. Turndown forecasted from what I’ve read by Schwab I believe 2023.
