4/10/2022 Markets were lower for the week as longer term Interest Rates surged higher. Now Long Term Treasury Bonds are down 25% from the 2020 High. T-Bonds are 12 % Below the Green Line on emotional FEAR Selling by Tammy and unsophisticated followers of the Bad News Media. Falling T-Bond prices has caused higher Interest Rates, which could slow down the housing Market as many will no longer be able to qualify.
The Herd is worried about inflation and the FED raising the Fed Funds rate many times this year. But soon the T-Bond market should love this, because tightening by the FED should slow things down. T-Bonds like slow growth and low Inflation. Historically high Interest Rates and Commodity Prices will cause a slow down, and then FED will probably change directions again.
You were warned 2 years ago that all of the FED Printing would cause Inflation. But the FED kept Printing. Now they are going to put on the brakes and cause deflation? Forget the FED, and FOLLOW the MONEY.
Currently the tangible Commodities are Way Above the Green Lines, and Bonds are Way Below the Green Lines. Both will eventually return to the Green Lines, so maybe we will see a Stock Market rally when Interest Rates and Inflation fall.
If you continue to Follow the Green Line System, your Money should flow into the Strongest areas and your account value should be able to grow in both Bull and Bear Markets.
