The Capitalist Investor - Episode 157

The CPI read for 7.1% was a little below estimates, but the market still reacted positively. The Fed is expected to make a decision soon, and home sales will be a big topic for 2023. Sam Bankman-Fried was arrested before he was supposed to testify on Capital Hill.

The team discusses the current state of the stock market and how it has been affected by various data points recently. They discuss how the market is pricing in a pause in the Fed’s rate hikes, and how this could affect the market in the future.

The speakers discuss the recent actions of the Federal Reserve and how they may respond to a slowdown heading into the 2024 presidential election. They question whether or not the Fed will be able to lower interest rates enough to spur economic growth, and whether or not this will be used as political ammunition by the either party. They also speculate on whether or not Biden will be replaced as the Democratic candidate for president.

The team discusses the current state of the housing market and its expected future. They mention that home prices had been rising astronomically, but this is not sustainable. Home sales are expected to continue to decline into 2023 as a result. The cost of borrowing has also increased, which is not good for the long-term success of the housing market.
