The Bear Market is Back, Will it Hibernate Soon?
After a summer rally, volatility is back in full swing. 2022 has challenged investors’ patience as almost every investment
has had negative returns, with the exception of commodities, the US dollar, and cash.
It appears investors and markets have run out of
patience and just want to be done with this bear
market and the recession talk. Instead, they are
hoping that inflation has peaked and the Federal
Reserve (Fed) will soon start cutting rates just as it
began raising them. This disconnect is one of the
reasons why the markets have floundered this year.
