You know why the market is green for the year....well of course it has nothing to do with the FED.
It's no coincidence that inflated stocks are the dierct correlation of monetary policy and fast financing.
In order to keep earnings elevated and compensate for increased taxes, prices for everything will rise faster than most expect and destroy the earning power of all Americans.
Welcome back to the 70's.
Short bonds buy commodities.
More than $8 trillion has been added to U.S. stock values since the rally began 2009 with very little inflation. I don't care about the price of broccoli. Home prices have just started to move back up. If inflation is so bad why are 10yr T-bonds 1.76% today

Massive inflation during that time. About 100% in gasoline, 60% in corn and wheat. Especially notable because it's happening during a time of very weak employment, which is supposed to crush commodity prices. Critical because it means the average American's ability to buy vital stuff keeps dropping. Edging closer to a Mubarak moment.
