Good morning.
Get Well June 23European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde has hinted that the bank may change its inflation target.  Just like the Federal Reserve, the ECB has a 2 percent inflation target for the Eurozone economy.
Moving that rate higher could give the bank more flexibility to deal with a crisis in the future.  But changing the goal now could also be a sign that the central bank isn’t confident it can meet its inflation target without harming the economy or sparking a bigger selloff in banks.
Overall, it’s likely that changing inflation targets may lead to a belief that bankers are in control and there’s reason to be confident.  But in the longer term, it may make markets more volatile and chaotic.  Investors should continue to focus on the fundamentals, and traders should continue to take advantage of market volatility.

IRS April '22Good morning.
Tracking economic growth (or decline) in real-time is tricky.  By the time statistics are collected, they’re weeks out of date.  And after being adjusted, they’re often months out of date.  That’s why economists and traders look for leading indicators that can give an advance warning of what’s going on in real time.
One potential indicator for consumer health might be found in the world of streaming subscriptions.  Data out of the UK indicates a massive wave of cancellations there, as the country faces its highest inflation rates in decades.  Looking at individual streaming companies and their customer retention rate may give as good an indication – if not better – than looking at the big-picture economic statistics that take months to compile.

Dreaming SleepGood morning.
Ford Motors (F) was founded in 1903.  In its 118 years as a company, it’s been built up as a giant in the automotive sector with a $48 billion valuation.  But thanks to a rise in electric vehicles, the company saw Tesla Motors (TSLA) surge past it in value last year.
Now, another player is moving past.  But it’s not an automotive firm.  Started in 2013 as a joke based off a meme, the new $50 billion player on the market is Dogecoin.  The digital currency does have some use as a currency, and there’s no saying when its explosive move may go higher.  But just as Ford started seeing its shares move higher on news that it was developing electric vehicles, it may be time for the company to start embracing cryptos as well.

Toy with YouGood morning.
All the talk of reopening the economy sounds great in theory, but how does it work in practice?  I know people are buying on the headline and the actual details can be sold later, but this seems like the biggest disconnect I’ve seen since 2008’s “soft landing.”
The reality is that “reopening” means different things to different people.  Unfortunately for those making policy decisions, it doesn’t mean that restrictions stay away, and life goes back to normal.  At some point, the market may awaken to that.
