  • Progress was remarkable in the last few days as airlines, consumer goods companies and banks announced earnings that exceeded expectations.

  • The Wall Street Journal published last week an article about the Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) slowing the pace of raising interest rates.

    • The above does not indicate the end of the bear market as that would require three important factors.
      - A definite decline in inflation that would decrease interest rates and tightening by the Fed.
      - Easing Covid lockdowns in China.
      - Easing geopolitical tensions in Asia and Ukraine.

  • Investors should be prepared for recession. We can only discuss market improvement when inflation recedes.
