Markets continue to be volatile as inflation, the Fed pivot, and global conflict all create headwinds for investors to deal with. Consumers were confronted with spiking inflation as we entered 2022, and the situation in Ukraine has only exacerbated the situation. The Fed has embarked on a mission to fight this inflation as they pivot from easy monetary policy to tightening. The challenge for investors will be to determine how markets will respond to an environment of inflation and a hawkish Federal Reserve, an environment we have not seen in decades. If you would like to hear more of our thoughts on the markets and the economy be sure to follow our daily email and periodic webcasts. All are invited.
