2 Question Tuesday – 01/30/2024 – Inflation Is Down, Will the Fed Cut Interest Rates Soon & How Do You Approach Investing In China?

Welcome to 2 Question Tuesday. This week’s client submitted questions were:

  1. Inflation is down, will the Fed cut interest rates soon?
  2. How do you approach investing in China?

Phil, Mike, and Larry discuss the Fed’s favorite inflation gauge, the personal consumption expenditures price index, increasing only 0.2% in December, and 2.9% on a yearly basis, a three-year low. They examine if the Fed could start lowering interest rates soon or if we’ll see another jump in inflation as shipping rates rise due to the Houthis continuing to fire on cargo ships in the Red Sea. They then look at the crash in the Chinese Stock Market, down 40% over three years, and how they approach investing in China.
