Quarterly Market Recap & What You Need to Know About Inflation

Aug 16, 2022 Market & Economic Updates

Is inflation slowing down? Can I expect future fed rate hikes? Does it even matter if we’re in a recession or not?

Get the answers in this episode of Off The Wall with hosts David Armstrong and Jessica Gibbs, featuring Monument’s portfolio managers Erin Hay, CFA and Nate Tonsager, CIPM.

Listen in to this quarterly market update (Q3 of 2022) as they address the booming inflation debate, take an insightful look ahead to earnings season, and dive deep into the future of federal rate hikes. Plus, you’ll hear about what’s on their minds right now as we approach the middle of Q3.

“Just because you’re getting a lower inflation number, it doesn’t mean that prices are coming down, necessarily, it just means that they’re going up at a slower rate. Disinflation is not deflation.” – Erin Hay
