The Federal Reserve is finally declaring war on inflation.
On Wednesday Dec 15, Fed Chair Jerome Powell announced that -- the fight the inflation it has played a central role in creating -- the Federal Reserve will accelerate its tapering program and likely hike interest rates 3x in 2022.
That's a 180-degree reversal of the Fed’s rampant bubble-blowing policies to date.
While markets are reacting favorably so far, can they continue to do so?
The key drivers of asset prices over the past decade - $trillions in stimulus, buybacks funded by dirt-cheap debt & low inflation -- are all coming to an end.
Which is why Steen Jakobsen, manager of $billions in client assets at Saxo Bank, predicts 2022 will be a much more volatile year than investors are used to.
And we should listen to him, as one year ago on this program he boldly predicted we'd see a surge in both inflation and commodity prices in 2021 -- and boy, was he ever right.
In this new interview, Steen shares his macro outlook and top predictions for 2022 (spoiler alert: he expects inflation to run even hotter next year...)
