Global equities have been on my radar for a shorting opportunity. Despite the FED comments this week, inflation has hit another record high, levels that have not been seen for 40 years. Despite the DXY dumping, we still feel the market is yet to price in a March interest rate hike followed by another couple later in the year. Fed Governor Lael Brainard said officials could boost rates as early as March to ensure that generation-high price pressures are brought under control. Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia President Patrick Harker and Chicago bank leader Charles Evans joined the calls by their policy-making colleagues for higher interest rates this year. This is bearish for equities, especially in the short term.
