Janet Yellen has a BIG problem on her hands.
The Fed has been tapering its QE programs to the tune of $10 billion per month or so. The problem with this is that the Fed is once again behind the curve and the markets are already smelling inflation.
Indeed, the US Dollar just took out key support yesterday.
This is a HUGE problem for the Yellen Fed. They are already tapering QE but the markets continue to display inflationary tendencies. What is the Fed to do? Raise rates? It’s already said that won’t happen for another year. And tapering QE more aggressively could tank stocks.
Meanwhile, food prices are roaring higher. Wholesale beef prices are up 21% from this period last year. Pork prices are up 56%. Agricultural commodities in general have moved sharply since the beginning of the year.
The problem with inflation is that it is a lot easier to create than contain. The Fed continues with its dubious claims that inflation is too low, but the markets and prices are saying otherwise.
Buckle up, much higher prices are coming. The Fed is behind the curve again, just as it was in 2007. We all know what happened next.
Be aware, there are warning signs flashing throughout the financial system…
With that in mind, We’ve already urged Private Wealth Advisory clients to start prepping. We’ve opened three targeted trades to profit from the stock bubble bursting. As we write this, all of them are roaring higher.
We’ve helped thousands of investors manage their risk and profit from market collapses. During the EU Crisis we locked in 72 straight winning trades and not one loser, including gains of 18%, 28% and more.
All for the the small price of $179: the annual cost of a Private Wealth Advisory subscription.
To take action to prepare for what’s coming… and start taking steps to insure that when inflation rips through the system you don’t lose your shirt.
