In this week’s market review we explore the fragile upswing in the second half of the week, which can best be understood as a positioning by speculators, betting on a falling market, typically seen as part of a bear market rally sequence, then anything substantive. I believe the markets are still not fully factoring the evaporation of a FED pivot at least for now, despite the intense and heightened rhetoric. Indeed, as I discussed yesterday, the current bout of inflation has predominately been caused by over stimulation thanks to ultra-low-rate settings, quantitative easing and loose fiscal measures (i.e., Government stimulus). The truth is this is now coming undone. Thus, I do not regard the slight end of week upswing as a significant turn. As normal, we will start in the US, such a globally dominate market, then cover Europe, Asia and end in Australia.
