Vote for me!Good morning.
The Federal Reserve raised interest rates 0.5 percent on Wednesday, as expected.  That was already priced into the market.  What’s caused the drop in stocks over the past two days has come from beyond the headline data.
Investors are now confronted with interest rates being higher for longer.  The Fed now sees a higher terminal rate than during its November meeting.  And by slowing the rate of interest rate hikes from here, it will take longer for that story to play out.
For traders, that’s a sign that markets will remain volatile – and that the current downtrend is likely intact.  We may get a modest year-end rally, but could still see the market trend lower in the first quarter of 2023.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Pension Funds Almost Collapse — Leaders Demand Urgent Global Action
The Bank of England on Tuesday called for “urgent international action” from regulators on non-bank financial institutions after it was forced to rescue U.K. pension funds in September.  A number of pension funds were hours from collapse when… [Read Here]

As You Can SeeGood morning.
It’s official.  With markets sliding all week, the Federal Reserve was able to thread the needle and reverse the loss on Wednesday – at least for now.  The central bank has increased the pace at which it’s reducing its bond-buying program, quantitative easing.  And the bank sees potentially three interest rate hikes in 2022.
If inflation numbers start to slow down in coming months, we could get a huge market rally thanks to this news.  Historically, the stock market has had a good 6-month and 12-month return following the start of a tightening cycle.  Add in inflation expectations dropping from 30-year highs, and 2022 could see a big rally, even on top of the massive returns seen since the start of the pandemic.  For now, stick with industry-leading companies when making new trades.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

New Dot-Com Collapse Threatens To Disfigure Portfolios Nationwide
The stock market’s recovery rally over the past week represents an opportunity for investors to sell ahead of an upcoming Fed interest rate “shock,” Bank of America’s Michael Hartnett said in a Friday note.  Hartnett recommends investors not “buy the dip” but instead… [Read Here]

Washington Writes A New Trillion Dollar Check – Guess Who It’s Going To
The effort will begin in the Senate, where Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is expected to advance a new resolution.  That procedural green light will mark the start of 10 hours of Senate debate allowed for under the resolution, split between the two parties.  Schumer said that Democrats will likely… [Read Here]

Money Can't Buy HappinessGood morning.
This may come as a shock, but some see the stock market getting ahead of itself.  The S&P 500 Index is now up over 12 percent in the past year.  That’s above the historical average.  It’s even more impressive when March’s rapid near-30 percent decline occurred.
In order get to today’s prices, valuations have exploded.  The S&P has a PE ratio of 37, a level last seen when earnings collapsed faster than prices in 2008, and before that at the peak of the tech bubble in 2000.  But it’s not just stocks.  Housing prices are up 16 percent this year, an impressive feat.  For years, some economists warned of an “everything bubble.”  They may have been ahead of the curve.  For now, stocks will either grow fast enough to justify today’s valuations, or we may be in for some underperformance in 2021.  Markets are betting on the former.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Handout Economics: Bizarre New Game Governor & Mayors Play Nationwide
Governors who shut down their state’s economies are lining up Congress for taxpayer funds to bail themselves out — at taxpayer expense.  How can you protect yourself from handout economics? [Read Here]

Leadership QualitiesGood morning.
Markets hate uncertainty, but that’s exactly what they got with the latest trade wars news.  The bottom line is that the tariffs set to kick in December 15th (yesterday) won’t.  And the September tariff rate will be cut in half, as long as China agrees to buy more U.S. agricultural goods.
But that’s just Phase I!  Now there’s a Phase II, with negotiations starting “immediately.”  The long and short of it is, neither the U.S. nor China wants to escalate things right now, but neither is there a fully done trade deal signed on the books.  Traders can expect more uncertainty, but on the plus side, they can expect more profitable trading opportunities from the trade war cycle ahead.

FWD_Thinking by AWeberI was asked recently, “Are you a ‘Megaphone’ email marketer?” 

You can use email like a megaphone — where you’re just loudly speaking and not actually listening — or you can use it to create a conver-sation.  Not only do conversations help you create deeper connections with your audience, they can give you ideas for blog posts, new products, and more.

One of the easiest ways to create conversation in your emails is to ask your audience a question.

To my left is a great Interactive Quiz.

I love a great chase…
