To touch upon immediately’s job report, I bought requested on media if I believed that recession is staved for now, was I stunned?
My reply is, under no circumstances. In truth, we discover it affirming that the financial system is simply stagnating as that’s precisely what we’ve predicted and positioned for.
Plus, no matter the place the Fed goes from right here, we nonetheless very a lot consider that the mixture of labor points, provide chain issues, the climate patterns and geopolitics, buyers shouldn’t take their eyes off commodities for funding functions.
