MDM has switched to a BUY signal.Schumer just said they are getting closer to an agreement on a stimulus package. Major averages in the U.S. have been bouncing. With inflation on the rise, the yield on the 10-year Treasury continues to climb. The U.S. dollar also continues to rise in anticipation of tapering to come sooner than expected with two rate hikes priced in for 2022, but this may be the illusory Potemkin village. Key economic indicators have disappointed in recent months. Economic momentum is languishing. The Fed knows it must buy time to postpone tapering or the markets will have a taper tantrum as they have many times before. Since March 2020, major averages have not had a correction beyond the low-teen percentages. While major averages are due for a 15-20% correction, another major multi-trillion dollar stimulus package will force the Fed's hand to continue to print. Vive la QE!
