Financial markets are holding their breath ahead of Wednesday’s Federal Reserve meeting.
Many are calling it Jerome Powell’s most challenging meeting yet, and I tend to agree.
The Fed is walking a fine line between supporting markets enough to avoid panic, overheating the economy, and triggering rampant inflation.
Despite the significance of Wednesday’s meeting, most in the crypto space aren’t talking about it. Perhaps they assume it doesn’t affect cryptos.
I can assure you that cryptos are not immune to the Fed’s actions, nor are they insulated from US stocks.
As I mentioned the other day, Bitcoin may be king of cryptos, but US stocks are the king of risk assets.
Any volatility from stocks will spill over into cryptos.
In today’s issue, we’re going to deep dive into the world of the Federal Reserve to see how their actions since March 2020 have impacted financial markets.
We’ll then discuss how the charts line up with a couple of scenarios I’m eyeing.
Welcome to the Everything Bubble
We’re in another asset bubble. Central banks have inflated financial markets just like they did in 2008, only this time it’s worse.
Stocks wouldn’t be trading at the levels they are if it weren’t for the Federal Reserve.
How do I know?
Just look at the Fed’s balance sheet since March 2020.
