- High Volatility: VIX > 23. SPX overall is bearish. Remember that you “can not fight the Fed.” Well you “can not fight the ECB” either. Last week, between the surprise 50 basis point ECB rate hike and new QE Unlimited ECB bond buying, all markets including all US Major indices enjoyed a one week bounce. The Dollar even experienced a corresponding 1 week selloff from its 20 year high. However, we do have a Fed Rate Hike of 100 or 75 basis points on Wednesday. Should temper this rally some, as the stagflation economic numbers and earnings are released this week. The new expected SPX range for this week: 4058 top and 3865 bottom.

US Dollar and 10 Year Interest Rate:
The US Dollar is pulled back to 107. Significant drop from the 109.294 a 20 year high. A weakening Dollar helps US Markets and Commodities this week. The 10Y Note Interest has stabilized around 2.8% while 30 year fixed rate mortgages are around 6%. The Yield curve has inverted with 2, 5 & 7 year yields higher than the 10 year. Fednow is forecasting a negative 2% GDP for 2Q/2022. This is a sign of the Stagflation (ie Recession plus Inflation). Long Term the US Dollar decline is still intact with Fiscal and Monetary stimulus flooding the world with US Dollars.
- Crypto Currency: Bitcoin range bound between $22,500 to $18,500. Bitcoin did a look “above and failed” outside of this range. Cryptos too are interest rate sensitive. Long Term and Institutional Investors are using this DIP to Dollar Cost Average into both Bitcoin and Ethereum. Corporations, Countries, and Institutional investors are accumulating large Bitcoin positions. Please continue to Dollar Cost Average into Bitcoin and Ethereum. Crypto winter will last for another 12 months, as we wait for the next Bitcoin Halvening in 24 months.
