(1/19/23) The Fed Whisperer says there are more rate hikes coming, despite the weight of inflation on markets & the economy. Retail Sales in December were off more than 1% (and 70% of the economy is consumer-driven). Stil to come will be the recessionary effect on earnings, as well as the lag effect of rate hikes. Debt Ceiling Deadline: There will be no default; the Crypto crunch; meanwhile, the same Fed rhetoric: More Rate Hikes to come. When will the Fed stall, and for how long, before the "pivot?" Where to invest as the Fed continues? The Value of the US Dollar: A weaker dollar is better for Commodity purchases; bonds and stocks are pricing-in a Goldilocks environment; stocks vs ETF's? The issue of volatility is what hampers Crypto-currency; the Yen and Yuan swing +/- 2% in one day! Gold vs Dollar theories.

Welcome to the 9Innings Podcast where we Educate, Empower and Engage. ON THIS WEEKS PODCAST: Kevin talks rising rates and how they may impact the overall economy in 2023. The Federal Reserve has stated it will keep rates higher for longer to attack and mitigate inflation. CPI projections have been coming down very slowly and the Fed has maintained a hawkish stance. The expectations on markets lands solely, in our opinion, on how the USD reacts to slowing economics and rates. The dollar has been the outperformer across all currencies in 2022, and has sold off recently over the past few months. The BOJ, Bank Of Japan, has increased their rate outlook which has pushed the Yen higher off the back of historic lows. Our outlook is currency based and we believe markets will move the way of the USD. We remain positive for stocks overall but do believe the first half of 2023 will be rough. We do believe the market will begin to factor in lower rates for 2024 in the latter half of 2023, and you may see a rebound in the equity markets. We do not believe markets in 2023 will be much higher than the 2022, and do not feel markets will approach new highs.#financialliteracy #stockmarket #certifiedfinancialplanner #interestrates2022 #stockmarket2023

"Market celebrations are premature with the Fed nearing the end of its hiking cycle," says Michael Gentile, co-founder of Bastion Asset Management. He reflects on the past year saying, "certain parts of the market got crushed, and that better day is not here today." He warns Daniela Cambone to be prepared for choppiness in 2023, "where significant pain will be the extent of an economic downturn, triggered by the Fed." "Higher structural inflation for longer is my view," Gentile continues. He forecasts a choppy and difficult year in 2023 for investors. "Rather than stomaching a difficult recession, we will see more government intervention through stimulus which is inflationary," Gentile says. He concludes by saying, "the Yen and euro are the cannery in the coal mine and silver is outperforming gold which we have not seen in years."

JGB yields have been little changed as of late, while in contrast, spot Dollar/Yen has fallen sharply, and Yen cross-currency basis has tightened off the wides. Japanese investors have been unloading their foreign bond holdings, while demand for JPY bond asset swaps has been strong among foreigners, which has caused price action into the end of the year to be a little unusual. In today's episode, MUFG Chief Japan Strategist Takahiro Sekido reviews 2022 and gives his outlook for 2023, including changes in JGB issuance.

Dollar/Yen has started to trend downward, trading on either side of the 140-mark. JGB yields have been stable thanks to the Bank of Japan's yield control operations, while cross-currency basis has tightened amidst foreigners' asset swap buying and Japanese investors' foreign bond selling. It is unusual for Dollar/Yen basis to tighten significantly ahead of year end, but 2022 has been an unusual year in many respects and basis is no exception.

Tom welcomes back Dale Pinkert to the show. Dale is an experienced commodity and FX trader. He is also head of trader development at Trade Gate Hub. Markets are getting massacred due to the Fed hike. Lately, you can judge how everything else will perform based on dollar strength. Dale questions where the labor force has gone as a result of the great resignation, and if those workers will ever return. We're in a new paradigm but the Fed may be in the Twilight Zone. We're going to need a weaker dollar to see the metals move higher. Dale believes the British Pound has reached the bottom, but the outlook for the Yen may not be that good. He believes US Bond yields could drop from here. If dollar strength continues, the U.S. may be forced to bail out much of the world's financial systems. If rates stay high, we're going to see solvency issues with corporations and governments. Dale discusses the food supply problems and why they are likely to persist for some time. The issues include droughts, war, and a lack of fertilizer. Lastly, he discusses what is needed for the Australian and Canadian dollars to perform better. Australia really needs to see China reopen to the world. Talking Points From This Episode The consequences and lagging effects of Fed rate hikes.Outlook for currencies and why the dollar may be topping.Grains and soybeans may be entering a bull market, which is concerning.Targets for precious metals and the outlook for resource backed currencies (CAD & AUD).

There is so much power in our voice and if we band together and demand our elected officials support reproductive rights, support menopause, and support research in women's health they have no choice but to pay attention. Women have to stand together. This week, episode 85 of The Jen Marples Show is about marrying passion with purpose to create the first doctor-led, women-founded online birth control delivery company. In this episode of The Jen Marples Show, my guest Dr. Sophia Yen, CEO & Co-Founder of Pandia Health, shares how Pandia Health is changing access to birth control in America and how we as women can destigmatize the menopause discussion and stand up for our healthcare rights. Some of the talking points Dr. Sophia and I go over in this episode include:Pandia Health was created to combat access to birth control and remains the only academic doctor-led birth control delivery service in the country. How remaining in academia keeps Dr. Yen on her toes and up to date with the latest science to better serve her customers. The importance of advocacy and our call to action as we enter into midterms. How hormonal birth control can be used to manage perimenopause symptoms. The unfair advantage men have gaining access to funding even in a female-dominated industry. Choosing female-founded and female-led companies.   It is no surprise that there is a lack of education on what to expect when perimenopause and menopause come our way. Luckily, we don't have to suffer through it and can use hormonal birth control options to #StopSuckingItUp and #MakePeriodsOptional.Make sure to listen to the entire episode to receive inspiration, tips, and  advice that will help you change your life and improve your business.Unedited AI Transcript HereCONNECT WITH DR.

Tom welcomes back Larry McDonald to the show. Larry is a New York Times bestselling author, CNBC contributor, and Political Risk Expert. Larry discusses the reach of his recent book, "A Colossal Failure of Common Sense: The Inside Story of the Collapse of Lehman Brothers." Larry is concerned about the impacts of rate hikes in Japan and around the world. Central banks are very nervous because they can't assess the damage inflicted by their policies for many months. The Fed doesn't want to admit that financial conditions can overpower them. We're going to see a 500 billion dollar swing in debt servicing. They are trying to scare investors with rhetoric, but the math is stacked against the Fed. The yield curve is showing that a recession is certain. They are trying to regulate the energy markets by drawing from the strategic reserves. However, prices are still continuing to rise. Japan is entering a doom loop between yield differentials and the value of the Yen. This could be a very dangerous scenario, and the only way out is to get help from the Fed. There are of globally players very concerned about the speed of Yen weakening. When markets see the end of a rate hike cycle, we see gold buyers do very well. Gold suffers at the beginning of these cycles. There is a crisis in metals, and we're going to be needing a lot more of them to roll out green energy. Silver is starting to now outperform gold, which likely means speculative money will come into the space.
