  • Legendary fund manager Druckenmiller: The bear market will continue, looking for opportunities to short US stocks and the US dollar

Well-known fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller warned Wall Street that the sharp decline in the stock market after the Federal Reserve raised interest rates is not over, and he is looking for opportunities to short stocks and the dollar. The catalyst for this stock market crisis is that the Federal Reserve has become aggressive in tackling the highest inflation in decades. Druckenmiller believes this could lead to a recession sometime in 2023. Druckenmiller said he has been shorting fixed-income assets (government and corporate bonds, etc.) and the stock market for the past six to eight months, avoiding too much money market exposure and holding key commodities like oil, gold and copper.


  • Bridgewater CIO: If Fed cuts inflation to 2%, U.S. stocks will plummet 25%

Greg Jensen, co-chief investment officer at Bridgewater, the world’s largest hedge fund, said inflation would put more pressure on the Fed to raise rates more than many on Wall Street had expected. But he believes the Fed will still tolerate inflation above its 2% target because policymakers can’t stand a severe stock market sell-off. The latest consumer price index showed U.S. inflation remained above 8%. If the Fed is really committed to reducing inflation to its 2% target, stocks could plummet 25% from current levels, as tightening would have to become more aggressive, which “would overwhelm the economy, potentially overwhelming the economy,” Jensen said. It will also overwhelm the weaker companies in the economy.”

  • Goldman Sachs, the “commodity flag-bearer”, said again: The energy super cycle is still in the early stage, and the entire duration may exceed ten years!

Goldman Sachs chief commodities analyst Jeff Currie reiterated on Thursday that we are in the early stages of an energy supercycle. In his view, Wall Street’s rotation into natural resources has yet to begin, as share buybacks and the absence of sellers drive shares higher. Currie believes the process of rebalancing stock market valuations and development costs will take another three years, after which energy companies will begin allocating funds to new projects rather than buying back stock. And once the process begins, the project will take another three to four years to develop. Further down the line, supply and demand will begin to rebalance and the cycle will come to an end. The overall process will take 10 to 12 years.


  • Greenlight Capital Einhorn: The Fed’s rate hike is a bluff, gold prices may rise sharply

Einhorn has always considered gold to be an extremely important asset in a portfolio. His fund is up 20.9% this year, helped by investments in gold, macro trades and bets that stocks of some unnamed companies will fall.
