The major U.S. banks are bracing for a wave of defaults as they increase their loan loss reserves. A slowing economy led by tighter monetary policy suggests that stock prices will head lower and take retail sales down with them.

  1. One major factor was left out is that we are seeing global inflation . I saw it in the news that most countries are all competing for parts , products , food etc. Even nations that managed their rates better are seeing major issues . The glut of money was an issue sure, but the surging demand from nation that re-opened from covid lockdowns played a larger role . Add to this pandemic-related staffing issues and the intentional global oil supply problems and its a nightmare . I known the intention was to explain inflation but that doesn’t do justice to the current inflation on a global scale.

  2. Wow, I love bank defaults! My favorite thing is when the whole system crashes. If it gets bad enough armed mobs will start hunting the rich people who ruined everything. It could get medieval.

  4. Thank you for your commentary. And to everyone who says he’s yelling FIRE in a theater…..not true but he is saying that he smells smoke and recommending we all be vigilant with our investments.

    They’re not just talking about weathering the storm, they’re talking about surviving the storm. Haven’t heard conversations like this in my lifetime but being too prepared has never been an excuse for failure only the lack thereof.

    Be well everyone.

  5. I'm 58 and my wife and I are VERY worried about our future, gas and food prices rising daily. We have had our savings dwindle with the cost of living into the stratosphere, we are finding it impossible to replace it. We can get by, but cant seem to get ahead. My condolences to anyone retiring in this crisis, 40years nonstop just for a crooked system to take all you worked for,

  6. Defaults are largely bank accumulations of real estate, not always ideal investments for them, but given inflation, possibly better than holding cash. In the end, the banks always win and always will. Dont worry about banks, the better will eat the less well positioned and life goes on for them, its the broader population and small to medium businesses that will have tough times.

  7. Trading crypto has been favourable, crypto market has brought me great success!!! Irrespective of the economic downturn I can boast of over $85,000 every month on my investment. Thank you Mr Robert Williams for your focus on quality management🙏🏻

  8. The problem with inflation this time around is that the central banks don't have the tools to tackle it. If they were to raise interest rates to the level required to check inflation, that would provoke a financial crash – bank failures. So they are letting inflation rise as the lesser of two evils from their viewpoint.

  9. Great context.everyone needs more than there salary to be financially stable.the best thing to do with your money is to invest it rightly.because money left for saving always end up used with no returns.i started investing in bitcoin mid November 2020 with the help of a well-known -professionalMr Jesse Powell and the profit entirely funded my recent duplex.

  10. Soft Landing? that's the ultimate Oxymoron. I'm 74 and I've never seen a Finanancial Soft Landing. It's apparently as rare as Bigfoot sightings. That' s a Bankster's Fever Dream that never seems to happen. Like the Tooth Fairy, it's fun to imagine, but never occurs. It's kind of like Thoughts and Prayers, good to say, but that's about the sum of it. Oh Well.

  11. Economy still good here in KCMO, sales are robust, housing has not fallen. Area by area things are very different. If you are selling your home Boise Idaho you will be getting 30% leas than 1 year ago.

  12. I am new to the stock market. Every stock
    that I bought so far, I was out of luck
    because I bought them when they were
    expensive. I feel I missed on all the stock
    opportunities so far for the tech stocks.I
    believe having 100k yearly income would be a good investment so I want to plug all my savings into the stock market. I know this sounds a bit dull but I would like to know if I should learn investing or let somebody else (more capable like a Financial coach) do it for me? Please share your thoughts. I am kind of tired of searching for a good stock to buy and loosing all the good opportunities.
