High diesel and gasoline prices on the one hand, the achievement of climate targets with the conversion of fossil fuels to freedom energies on the other. The economy, and the transport sector in particular, is facing a mammoth task. One company may now have achieved a breakthrough. The patented technology combines two solutions to the problem: fuel saving while minimizing CO2 emissions. So far, this breakthrough has been little noticed by the broader market.Read

The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.Read

Due to the stricter monetary policy of the central banks and inflation concerns, the capital-intensive biotech sector is also suffering. The NASDAQ Biotechnology Index has lost almost a quarter of its value since the beginning of the stock market year. In addition, the number of companies trading even below their cash levels is higher than ever. At the same time, as can be seen with vaccine manufacturers, the industry is becoming increasingly important in everyday life. Especially in cancer research, some companies have the opportunity to multiply in the coming years based on their product pipeline.Read

Due to uncertainties in the global economy with fears of recession, blown supply chains coupled with rampant inflation, it is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to maintain their forecasts. The latest example is battery maker Varta, which withdrew its full-year estimates altogether due to increased production costs. Analysts reacted with downgrades. In contrast, despite recent corrections, most financial experts are optimistic for the long term, especially for the commodities sector.Read

The price of copper has lost around a third since March of the current stock market year. Investors are selling the metal, which is known as an economic barometer, due to global recession fears and concerns of a drop in demand. However, due to the great importance of copper with regard to the energy turnaround, the tide is likely to turn again soon. Mining companies and commodity traders are already warning of a massive shortage of the world's most important metal. Goldman Sachs expects the price of copper to reach USD 15,000 per ton by 2025, which would mean a doubling of the current level.Read

In the wake of the major interest rate hike, the US Federal Reserve increased by 75 basis points, and the stock markets again went into a dive. After the statement by Chairman Jerome Powell, the Dow Jones lost more than 1,000 points over the day, and the Nasdaq technology index also ended the day with significant losses. That threatens a further test of the lows for the year. In the course of this, established market leaders from various sectors corrected and now offer attractive long-term entry opportunities at a reduced level.Read

In an interview with the television station "CBS", the most powerful man in the world, US President Joe Biden, declared the pandemic over. While people in Germany have to wear face masks to the Oktoberfest in local and long-distance transport and then blare the latest hits from Mallorca in the marquee, without masks, of course, outside the former growth engine of Europe, relaxation seems to be setting in regarding COVID-19. A blow to the global vaccine industry! Meanwhile, a new market is growing unnoticed in the healthcare industry that could trigger a lasting trend in the near future.Read

Fears of a global recession continue to grow, with prices for commodities such as copper, lumber, cotton and even grains correcting sharply. In contrast, the lithium price continues to hold at a high level after the explosive rise at the beginning of the year. The reason for this is the continued strong demand from the electric car industry. In China alone, sales of electric cars amounted to 3.2 million units last year, and 5 million vehicles are expected to be delivered this year. In contrast, the existing supply of lithium resources is scarce. In addition to existing producers, the primary beneficiaries of this shortage are the exploration companies, which have already been able to secure attractive properties.Read

The all-dominant topic this week is the interest rate decision of the US Federal Reserve. On Wednesday, a further tightening of interest rates is considered a certainty. However, experts even assume the largest interest rate step for over 40 years with an increase of a whole percentage point. Of course, this would weigh on the precious metals and crypto sectors in addition to the stock markets. In the medium term, however, a change in strategy by the monetary guardians could be on the horizon.Read

The skies for growth stocks have clouded over considerably since the beginning of the year with the change in strategy by the central banks. With all their might, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation with several interest rate hikes. This week, the Fed is expected to make a third major interest rate hike, with experts predicting a rise of 100 basis points. However, whether further interest rate steps will follow is likely to be at least questioned. If the fight against inflation continues to be played as a trump card for the re-election of the current government until the midterm elections in the US, a change of strategy is likely to be made afterwards at the latest in order not to bring the economy to a complete standstill. The result would be a bullish stock market, with growth stocks in particular likely to benefit significantly.Read
