The index he surged over 9% (I’m talking about Bitcoin) and the only thing that fell was oil, which is definitely good news. According to Powell, things are going well, apparently. It’s hard to believe that it works so quickly and for the first time.
Finally, it’s especially me who finds it hard to believe…
However, the past week has not been easy for the market. Thinking back on the events of the last few days, it makes me wonder how they managed to get 4% on the Nasdaq, 2.6% on the DAX, and almost 2% on the CAC.
There are clearly two reasons for this.
first one : The fact that the index held and investors suddenly thought ‘raising interest rates to fight inflation was a good thing’ – better than the last time we spoke at the Jackson Hole Symposium. Same words, same situation, but different interpretations. In addition to that, the market has goldfish memories and explanations.
Second : The fact that the dollar crashed last week and the great investment world suddenly realized that a weak dollar was too cool for American exporters.

With a European recession looking inevitable, the ECB will likely continue to raise interest rates and a debt crisis is unlikely. Some of this bad news is widely believed not to have been priced into stocks in the region. So there is an opportunity for patient investors.
