Was the Fed’s Big Rate Hike Too Little Too Late?

As the Fed was preparing to make its statement, the markets were rallying based on the expectation for a 75-basis-point rate hike.

Was the Federal Reserve’s 75-basis-point rate hike too little too late? Perhaps…

As the central bank was preparing to make its interest rate statement on June 15, the markets were rallying in a down market based on the expectation for a 75-basis-point rate hike.

Well, that’s exactly what the market got. However, perhaps it should have come a long time ago?

The reality always was that if we weren’t headed towards negative interest rates like Europe has experienced, we were eventually going to have to at least move up from zero.

Let Capitalism Work

Free markets and capitalism work. That is what our country is founded on.

But in recent decades, the government has stepped in every time there’s been uncertainty.

Government manipulation is the last thing free markets and capitalism need. In fact, it’s basically like poison.

The government is there to serve its citizens, not to manipulate the economy.

But the government these days appears to want to control everything. Some would say the reach has gone too far, while others desire to be dependents.

Markets and the broad economy move in cycles, and those cycles represent the natural path of growth required for sustainability.

But when the markets and the economy are heavily manipulated, those cycles are disrupted.

And that causes new and greater issues than there would have been if the cycles just played out on their own.

Follow the Money

Unfortunately, when there’s money involved, there’s greed involved too.

As I like to say, “follow the money,” and you’ll find the root of every problem in the world.

Too much money was pumped into the markets on the back of the great recession.

Companies that would’ve folded if they were privately held were bailed out.

And they did it again during the pandemic, simply pumping money into companies that should’ve been prepared.

Be Prepared

In my view, you should have at least three years of “cost of living” money liquid and available to you.

If you’re running a business, you should have at least one year of “cost of operation” money liquid and available for your company to survive on.

The government is not there to save you. It’s  there to serve you… And the more we allow it to “save” us, the more it gains control over us and the worse it is for the health of the overall economy.

Get Josh’s Take

My good friend and professional trader Josh Martinez uses a similar technical approach to the markets inside of his entry level futures trading service, Futures War Room.

Josh is one of the greatest futures traders I know. We often bounce ideas off of each other as we analyze the market.

He describes his futures trading strategy as possibly “the world’s most profitable side job”…

This strategy helped Josh turn an initial deposit investment of $500 into $39,282 in less than two years.

All you have to do is access a little-known portal in your brokerage account and start copying Josh’s strategy — step by step, and trade by trade.

It really is that simple.
