Dawn of a New Bull Market

- November 4, 2022
This week, I spoke with longtime friend Jared Dillian, former Wall Street trader, financial writer, and proponent of sentiment investing. His contrarian letter, The Daily Dirtnap, is read by thousands of market participants and high-net-worth investors.
In this week’s Global Macro Update, we discuss the Fed’s mixed-message press conference and what Powell’s comments really mean… why he feels we could be on the cusp of a new bull market… the sector Jared believes will lead a market rally... how sentiment trading works in practice... and much more. His take is out-of-consensus, which is why you should listen.

The Midterm Election Boost
Since 1962, the S&P 500 has had a 16.3% average return the year after a midterm election. Compare that to a -1% average for the year leading up to a midterm election.
History suggests that the specific outcomes of midterm elections—whether seats are flipped or the opposing party is taking the House or Senate—are less important than the mere fact that elections are held.

So, will we soon be in a bull market again? Will the Fed continue to raise rates? What opportunities should investors look for in fixed income? Jared and I cover these and many more questions.
