Not lose 21% YTD like the rest of us mother fuckers
If only it were 21%.

Nice rally after being down much of the day today. Good to see investors feeling comfortable about holding stocks over a long holiday weekend.

Going forward, what could help? Inflation numbers that are anything but awful (possible). China abandoning its zero-covid policy (probable). Signs of a break in hostilities in Ukraine (probably not before autumn at the earliest).

Does anyone think the end of the war in Ukraine will bring a global, if not rally, little bump/stop of the slide? I suspect much of the pessimism is linked to the war.

What about those of us who levered up 50% at a nice low 2% and are now paying 3.5% (and probably rising) to hold those now down positions?

Inflation (and consequent monetary tightening) is the nub of the issue — and the war is mostly a component of that rather than a global macro driver in itself, I think.

There are some good charts in there, but he doesn't convince me that inflation is going to slow down any time soon other than he brings up a valid point about consumer spending driving some of this which would indicate stagflation is unlikely because if we go into a recession, that will decline and reduce inflation some.
