The market’s ability to overreact to news is nothing short of incredible.
You see, Wall Street tends to take predictions as truth. We saw that again after the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting this week.
On Wednesday, the FOMC announced that it’s moving up its timeline for raising interest rates. Rather than waiting until 2024, it will now look to raise rates at least twice by the end of 2023. Some in the committee anticipate rate hikes as early as 2022.
After the meeting, some analysts projected that the Federal Reserve may also taper its bondbuying program — lessening the amount of money it dumps into the financial markets every month — earlier than expected.
Even though the Fed doesn’t plan to hike rates or trim its bondbuying for at least six months, the market took the news as immediate, falling to session lows after the mid-week announcement.
If you’ve been in the markets for a while, you’re probably sick of Wall Street’s inability to separate the present from predictions. And all of the hedge funds, analysts, banks and money management firms in the U.S. are making their own forecasts about the market’s next move.

Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), like the name suggests, would give the world’s central banks the power to create and track their own digital currencies. Right now, retail banks impact the growth of money within a given country’s financial system — but the rise of CBDCs could eliminate retail banks altogether. And that could greatly increase demand for one growing asset class…
Right now, most cryptocurrencies operate on a proof-of-work basis. But there’s another option: proof-of-stake. Proof-of-stake increases the potential profitability of cryptocurrency investments more than proof-of-work. And, it’s even becoming more profitable than holding stocks and bonds. With certain large cryptocurrencies transitioning to staking, now is a great time to invest in the space.
Despite what some talking heads will tell you, bitcoin is a good investment.
