December 10, 2021 | If Markets Crash, the Fed Can’t Stop It

Bob Hoye has been in investment business for some 50 years, making him one of the more experienced researchers. His historical work has been thorough providing the first recognition of the fascinating transition from speculation in commodities to speculation in financial assets. It was controversial when Bob observed that “No matter how much the Fed prints, stocks will outperform commodities”. In January 2000, the research team concluded that the Dot-Com Bubble would peak in March 2000. In early 2007, the team outlined that the credit markets would reverse in May-June 2007. They did and the stock market followed. The latest was the call in early October for the Bitcoin Bubble to complete in December. Bob’s essays and speeches on political change and on actual climate change have been widely circulated.

    Hi Bob and Jim. Many financial pundits seem to be blaming Jerome Powell for being behind the inflation curve and how QE must stop now and interest rates must also start rising now, not sometime late next year. They point to 6 to 9% inflation while the Fed maintains real rates below zero. It does seem crazy. Bob, is Fed Chair Powell waiting until he is reappointed in February 2022 and wants to avoid a market crash until then? Or is he allowing the institutions time to dump their shares into the hands of retail investors, before raising rates? Or is there something else going on here?
