Global stock markets are mostly higher today after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said the U.S. central bank isn’t in any rush to adjust its monetary policy.
It’s likely that the Fed will continue with its strategy of holding short-term interest rates steady and buying as many government-backed bonds as it takes to keep the markets running without a hitch.
But in case you haven’t already noticed, long-term bond values are going down while long-term interest rates are increasing. And it could lead to a big problem called inflation.
That’s just the reality of it, folks…
In today’s video, I have more on the biggest factors impacting the stock market right now… whether bond prices will rally or fall… which stocks investors and traders are accumulating right now… and how you could potentially outperform large-cap stocks by a factor of six to one.
P.S. Small-cap stocks have the potential to rally faster than their bigger, blue-chip cousins. And yet many people ignore this sector in favor of companies they’re more familiar with.
