Inflation Surges and The Markets Are Still Bi-Polar…

Posted On April 14, 2022 4:35 pm

Dear Reader, 

Short email today, the market is keeping me hopping and I have to stay on top of things for subscribers to my Options360 concierge trading service.  

Yesterday and today the markets seem to have had a turn around from the beginning of the week. 

Monday the Dow lost more than 400 points, and Tuesday it dropped about 100 points.  

On top of that, the CPI report released on Tuesday shows that inflation is at 8.5%.  

I mentioned last week that, although my data was anecdotal, I couldn’t imagine the CPI going down.  I was right.  

If you check with John Williams at ShadowStats he suggests that inflation may be much higher than reported.  I’ll leave that to you to check out and make your own assessment…

However between yesterday and today (as I write this email) the Dow is up almost 475 pts since close on Tuesday. 

Record inflation is now good for the markets?

We’re almost back to even with Friday’s close, and over the last month we are up more than 5%.

Franky this market is exhausting.  The only reason I can keep up with it is because I have 40 years of experience trading full time.  

I can’t imagine what a retail trader who trades in his part time must feel like watching this drama play out on a day to day basis.  

I invite you to let me help you navigate this clown world

And help you build the wealth you want and deserve.  

To Your Success


PS. You can get started for just $19.  After a month, if you don’t see the value – you can drop out and never be charged another penny. 

You won’t drop out though. You’ll quickly realize that this was the best $19 you ever spent!
