  1. US Dollar and 10 Year Interest Rate:

    The US Dollar rise is pausing after breaching the Pandemic High of 103. Perhaps there will be pausing in rising rates too. While the US Dollar is losing buying Power, it still is the strongest FIAT currency. For now, the US Dollar is a flight to safety as the US and Europe slip into recession. As a result, the 10Y Note Interest hti a high of 3% on Monday. 30 year fixed rate mortgages are at a 4 year high between 5-6%. This is not good for Tech Stocks and Real Estate. Commodities prices on Oil and Wheat remain elevated. Long Term the US Dollar decline is still intact with Fiscal and Monetary stimulus flooding the world with US Dollars.
