Inflation in the US has surged to the highest level in nearly 40 years, reaching 8.5% in March 2022. This, coupled with the US Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates, has alarmed many investors.
The first quarter 2022 market downturn squeezed equity and fixed-income asset classes alike. As investors, we've all grown accustomed to pull-backs in stocks, but not like the simultaneous stock and bond drawdowns of the magnitude we just witnessed.
There has been a fair amount of talk about a possible recession coming to us in the near future. I want to discuss what that means and also give a bit of historical context so that we understand the recession when a recession actually shows up.
