WOW place2Good morning.
The past few months have been bullish for investors, thanks in part to the declining rate of rate hike increases by the Fed.  The most recent meeting was for a 25-basis point hike, or 0.25 percent.  That’s two-thirds lower than the 0.75 percent hikes that were the most common feature of 2022.
However, one Fed governor suggested a 0.5 percent rate hike.  That was enough to send stocks lower yesterday, especially as the latest producer price inflation came in higher than expected.
That’s yet another sign that stocks may have gotten overextended in the short-term, and that they may have a notable pullback in the coming weeks.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Is Never Good For YouGood morning.
Commodities are an unusual asset.  They either perform poorly, or are one of the top investments in a given year.  This year, they stand to continue building on their performance of the past few years.
While it’s easy to give inflation the credit for rising commodity prices, a combination of supply and demand is pointing to potential moves higher in everything from agricultural commodities, precious metals, and, of course, energy.  Reports of low supplies in silver on exchanges, Brent Cushing oil reserves, and other commodities point to a potential squeeze higher.
While we’ve highlighted some trades in this area already, traders may want to consider having a more permanent exposure to commodities until inflation comes under control and supply and demand dynamics for these commodities starts to improve.

Main GigGood morning.
A decade ago, companies that took advantage of low interest rates to sell corporate bonds would then use the money to buy back shares of their company.  The rising debt levels eventually became an issue, and some rallied against the “financial engineering” of increasing debt to raise a stock price.Today, interest rates are once again at record lows.  But some companies are going into debt to buy assets, specifically bitcoin.  That’s been the move behind MicroStrategy (MSTR), who announced another $600 million in bonds.  Issuing debt at 5 percent to buy an asset that, while volatile, tends to have triple-digit returns on average may explain why the stock market and bitcoin rallies can continue even higher.  It may also allow MicroStrategy to become poorly named as it could become far larger than its current $10 billion market cap.
