CPI Print Sends Equities & Crypto into a Selloff

  • CPI is up 0.4% for September 2022
  • Crypto Altcoins nuked last night ahead of the CPI print this morning
  • This is a signal that the Fed will continue to raise rates at the next FOMC Meeting in November
    • Anticipate 75 to 100 basis point increase which will increase volatility in the markets

S&P 500 / $SPY

  • Pre-market dropped from $360 to $350 marking a lower low going into market open this morning
  • This could be the beginning of a waterfall selloff going into the next FOMC Meeting

  • There’s more pain ahead if the Fed is expected to raise rates again

  • Note 2 things:

    2. The RSI is heavily oversold – I’m expecting a bounce here
