Cash is a position and patience is in order as we navigate the worst months of the year and the weak spot of the four-year cycle. But 2022 is setting up for a prototypical midterm bottom hitting its low point in late Q3 or early Q4 in the August-October period, just ahead of the midterm elections. Jeff will show you how to navigate this volatility and be ready for the next bull market rally. Inflation is stubbornly remaining at multi-decade highs, the Fed is tightening, sentiment is bearish, support levels are not holding, supply chain disruptions persist, there is conflict in Europe and energy prices are at record highs for consumers. Continue to be patient as the weak spot of the four-year-cycle will eventually give way to the sweet spot, likely sometime later in Q3 or in early Q4. Even with inflation at multi-decade highs, cash is likely the least risky place to wait.

With the volatility and market drops we have seen in 2022, it has been a rough year for lots of investors. If you are invested in stocks, bonds, or even cash, you have probably seen a drop in purchasing power. Learn how we think you should be helping to protect yourself from market drops and volatile times like this.
