As rate hikes continue, Bloomberg Intelligence predicts “a severe global economic reset,” with gold hitting record highs in 2023. “The inevitable Fed pivot will push gold prices above their $1,700-$2,000 trading range that has dominated since 2019,” said BI’s senior macro strategist Mike McGlone. At the Fed’s most recent meeting, Chairman Jerome Powell gave no indication of when rate hikes would end. “The reality is we’re going to react to the data… So if we continue to get, for example, strong labor market reports or higher inflation reports, it may well be the case that we have do more and raise rates more than is priced in,” he said. In other news, Missouri senator Eric Schmitt called Biden’s State of the Union speech “the epitome of tone deaf,” explaining that the president said nothing to change the trajectory of our current inflation crisis.

“The disinflationary process, the process of getting inflation down, has begun and it’s begun in the goods sector, which is about a quarter of our economy,” the central bank chief said during an event in Washington, D.C. “But it has a long way to go. These are the very early stages.”

Missouri senator gives Biden’s speech last night a reality check: ‘Disconnected’

Following President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, Missouri Republican Sen. Eric Schmitt wasted no time giving the speech a reality check, calling it “completely out of touch” and “disconnected” from the truth.

“It’s disconnected from reality. There’s just no other way to put it,” Sen. Schmitt told Fox News Digital Tuesday moments after the address. “It’s like Groundhog Day. It’s the same speech from last year, and nothing’s gotten any better. Things have gotten worse for people. That’s because this president is beholden to the radical left and their agenda that makes life more difficult for average Americans.”

During his speech, the president touted various spending bills passed by Democrats over the last two years and even touted incorrect jobs numbers. Biden additionally claimed that Republicans want to take the economy “hostage.”
