Fighting The Fed

S&P 500 couldn‘t convincingly break below 4,015 and reach the first 3,980s and then towards 3,965. Fed minutes merely reinforced the tightening ideas amid decreasing voices of „no landing“ and „disinflation“ narratives as amply described in Tuesday‘s key analysis.

Copper keeps showing the way, boding well for other real assets – more in the months rather than in the weeks ahead.
