Will the Fed Rain on the Stock Markets’ Parade?

(1/25/24) The first estimate of Fourth Quarter GDP is released today: It's only a guess, but expected to be slightly above 2%, which would be the slowest rate of growth since 2023, and coming off Q3 growth of 4.9% (NOTE: The actual number, released after this show aired, is 3.3%, still a significant slowdown from the previous quarter). The connection between GDP growth and earnings; valuations matter. The markets' rally continues; is correction coming? The Fed changes stance: will there be regrets? The Fed's #1 Goal is financial stability. The Fed is great at lighting fires, but not so good at putting them out. Is the Fed prepping for crisis? Fahrenheit 451 and The New Truth: cursive writing & The Constitution. Is 3% inflation the camel's nose under the tent? What inflation really means, and why the Fed needs it at 2% (why debt matters). What if the Fed knows inflation will be lower in 6-months? "Tru-flation." What rents are saying: The new tenant index = 2%. The Fed's big fear is deflation: declining prices delaying purchases. Markets are pricing-in three scenarios: Will the Fed or won't they? Time will resolve the differences. Will the Fed and Administration send more checks to households?
