U.S. Macroeconomic Forces in Play

2. You said you have two inputs to lift the confusion on our economy. What are they?

3. What are those inputs currently saying about this economy?

4. Are these inputs the deciding factor on how high the Fed hikes rates?

5. How does the latest CPI data factor in here?

6. Has any of this changed your outlook for GDP going forward?

7. Globally, other major central banks around the world are raising their interest rates also to address their inflation issues. This as the U.K. has a new leader. For Europe, energy costs are a big issue as well. Will the Eurozone and the U.K. topple into a recession, due to soaring energy costs?

8. How can individuals stay on top of macroeconomic trends?

9. A few Strong Buy stocks on your radar include Arista Networks ANET, Albemarle ALB and ST Microelectronics STM.
