This is the news I’ve been waiting for a long time. That is why I am very, very slowly adding Direxion Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull 3X Shares (TMF) to my portfolio.

Fed Vice Chairman Lael Brainard made a similar statement: to fight inflation, the regulator will not rush to ease policy. At the same time, Ms. Brainard admitted that the reduction in the Fed’s balance sheet reduces the level of liquidity in the market, and in the event of a panic, the markets may not do well.
All these thoughts are only my cautious assumptions. This is not an investment recommendation. Life today is extremely unpredictable, and any turns in it are possible.
