If the CPI Report Don't Fit, You Must Submit

After yesterday morning's red-hot CPI report, bulls are now latching onto a cool headline PPI print this morning with (oddly) "seasonally adjusted" lower gas prices, even though gasoline has clearly been rising.  At any rate (no pun intended), the Nasdaq is leading today's bounce even as both rates and the VIX are higher as I write this. Energy...

Inflation Whiplash

Another hot CPI report this morning, with emphasis on gasoline and shelter prices, has doves running for cover as rates on the 10-Year push above 4.5%. An earlier dip-buy attempt in equities seemed initially convincing but has since sputtered.  Overall, inflation looks to be staging another leg higher for a kind of whiplash effect off what many...

Here's the Thing About Rip Van Winkle

...even he woke up, eventually.  You may notice that the monthly chart for the premier copper miner, Freeport McMoran, below, looks an awful lot like the monthly chart of the silver metal. Both charts are threatening to emerge from multi-year symmetrical triangles within the context of decade-plus sideways/dead money periods.  And just as Rip...

Looking for a 5x4 By Memorial Day

Powell gave remarks at Stanford University earlier today where he is still sticking to his guns that we are merely seeing a "bumpy" path down to 2% target inflation. In other words, the recent data are not swaying him off his rate cut plan for later this year, just yet.  Powell and his cohorts at The Fed have been awfully stubborn on this...

It's How Civilizations Fall

The SOFR is an acronym which stands for, "Secured Overnight Financing Rate," and is the replacement to LIBOR (which stood for "London Interbank Offer Rate"). LIBOR was deemed too prone to manipulation (try to hold your laughter) and thus the SOFR calculation was tweaked a bit from the LIBOR. But, essentially, SOFR acts like LIBOR did, as...

April Bond Fool in the Rain

I almost never headline a blog post with a chart. Typically, I use a photo relevant to the title or body of the post.  However, and this certainly is no April Fools' Day joke, TBT (ultra-SHORT ETF for Treasuries, essentially a bet on higher rates by being long TBT) has been the mainstay in my portfolio for over fifteen months now with Members....
