United States consumer inflation up at 7% in Dec 2021, highest level since 1982. Interest rates still down at 0.25%, offering no incentive to save. US Federal Reserve expected to start to increase interest rates in Mar 2022 and continue to move rates higher over next 2 to 3 years
Around 40% of Nasdaq listed stocks are at 52 week lows. Yet the overall index is only 7% off all time highs. The blue chips are standing strong while the high beta stocks have been crushed. School fees for the Robinhood heroes of 2021.

Wrapping up everyone’s choices, with only 3 or 4 outstanding, these are the most popular stocks:

SA Reserve Bank increased rates by 25bps flagging the clear upside risks to inflation, despite the Reserve Bank flagging the downside risks to SA growth. This is an appropriate and forward looking decision given how damaging higher inflation can be for most households

Some business models are more enduring than others. #LSEG #JSE2
Pretty decent inflation hedge. Johnson & Johnson dividends going back 40 years.
Real wars, trade wars, crashes, bubbles, lockdowns, Trump, recessions, expansions etc. steady as she goes.
Yield in the US 2 year has gone from 0.15% (last year), 2.59% (last month) to 3.25% today. Very big moves indeed! Equity market getting all the attention, but the action in bond market is worth a mention.
What's happened in the last two days had never happened in my 37 year career. The bigger move in 2 year rates only happened during the volcker years. Back then the fed just called the primary dealers and told them the fed funds rate. No presser, no guidance. Just a surprise
