Bear Market Rally. We're likely in the sixth inning. July earnings guidance and CPI will be critical. If I had to guess, we're already in a recession, hopefully a shallow, brief one. But....
I guess I knew already but I’m anxious to move forward. We’ll have our answer in a month.

Inflation nowcasting out of the Chicago Fed showing a tick up in inflation over last months reading. It's sort of like a real time inflation reading, but underestimated inflation so far this year (if I read the graphs correctly). Producer Price Index also at 10% and that's inflation in the pipeline. Real GDP from the Atlanta Fed (GDPNow) show 0% growth this quarter ... so, probably bear market rally during a few weeks where there's little financial news. But who knows, stranger things have happened, lots of money on the sidelines.

Down from a March high reading of 11.5% but its been over 10% since last November.
As long as it's moving in the right direction! :)

I held off buying today, most due to a busy work day. Will buy more on Monday with any dip. I get more and more excited about my leveraged ETFs!

This maybe time to consider buying puts in YANG or call options in YINN. The catalyst could be coming in early July with some of the china tariffs up for renewal. Semiconductors are possibly affected by the tariff decision in July as well. Buy something close to the money. These are relatively thinly traded options.

Puts in YANG? So you are shorting a leveraged short ETF? #bossin

In my limited experience with VR is that it's really cool, really interesting.

But I can't help but wonder what it would mean for society if we were all investing a significant amount of time to VR.

Never mind the Matrix like implications.
If they can get the porn perfected on there they might have something lol
