Tackle Today: Fed Meeting Hangover

June 16, 2022

By | No Comments

«Stocks Swoon…again.»


Yesterday’s Fed meeting saw the monetary magicians roll up their sleeves and get at least a little more serious about wrangling the inflation monster. They boosted rates by 75 basis points, the most aggressive hike since 1994. And another three-quarters of a percentage hike is on the table for July’s meeting.

Stocks initially rallied, bringing hopes of relief to a beaten-down market. Traders departed their terminals yesterday in high spirits that a bounce could be upon us. Then they awoke to a bleep show. Equities are back to puking, and buyers have fled the premises.

The Russell 2000 is down 4%, the S&P 500 is down 3%, and energy, the one area holding up, is down 5%. Keep your wits about you. There be vicious bears on the loose.
