“From the start of WWII in 1939 until it ended in late 1945, the Dow was up a total of 50%, more than 7% per year. So, during two of the worst wars in modern history, the U.S. stock market was up a combined 115%.”

This coming week, we continue the publication of our 2021 Annual Wrap Up with the Equity Overview & Rambus Chartology.
The central banks’ largesse during the initial phase of the Going Direct Reset is slowing, with inflation on the rise—now officially acknowledged as more than a temporary phenomenon. Bankers are threatening higher interest rates to replace their rich pandemic profits as the medical masquerade dwindles into disbelief and growing anger. Meantime, frothy stock markets and crypto prices are making investors nervous as labor challenges cut into corporate profits, and government debt skyrockets to yet higher levels.
This Thursday, I will look at the financial markets performance for 2021 and the new Rambus Chartology. Next, I will review the insufficiency of traditional investment strategies as the global coup unfolds. Finally, I will share what I do and options for allocating your time and resources in 2022. Much of the material draws on the same topics addressed in the last four Equity Overviews. However, based on the questions I have been receiving for Ask Catherine, I need to keep bringing this back to the basis of “What do I do?”
Please join me for the 2021 Annual Wrap Up: Equity Overview with the quarterly blockbuster from Rambus Chartology. Go to the web presentation on Thursday here to access the quarterly financial charts and Rambus Chartology.
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend you check out this three-part documentary series, New Zealand: Skeletons in the Cupboard, from Plummtree Productions about the ancient history of New Zealand, which might go back much further than is commonly believed. As we watch oral history being targeted, censored, and suppressed, efforts like this to capture and circulate are very welcome. You can watch “Redheads, Part 1” below and the full series here.
In Money & Markets this week, John Titus and I will cover the latest events and continue to discuss the financial and geopolitical trends we are tracking in 2022. E-mail your questions for Ask Catherine or post at the Money & Markets commentary here.
Please join me this Thursday, January 20th for the 2021 Annual Wrap Up: Equity Overview.
Talk to you Thursday!
