Billionaire investor Ray Dalio predicts the Fed will hike interest rates to at least 4.5% - and warns a major recession is likely (2 min read)

Ray Dalio predicts that the Fed will continue increasing rates to at least 4.5% in order to tame inflation and the stock market will plunge about 20% as a result. The Fed is trying to pull money out of the economy and that means rates will need to rise to a point where demand for private credit decreases. This will bring the private sector down which in turn will also bring the economy down. The continuous rate hike will cause a major recession but it’s delayed until people exhaust their wealth and are forced to cut back on spending.

The Oil Market Isn’t Broken, It’s Just Responding To A Supply Surplus (1 min read)

As oil prices continue to fall, commodity analysts at Standard Chartered said the fundamentals of the oil market are not broken and are just responding to a surplus. The commodities market update from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve shows that the global oil market is in excess surplus and estimates a surplus of 1.82 million barrels a day in Q3. While some forecasters are blaming market mechanism failure and volatility for the drop in oil prices, Standard Chartered analysts said the market is still functioning well and the simple answer is because of sharp increase in supplies and weak demands.

Listen up Gen Z: How to invest as young person (7 min read)

This article compares the type of investment services and the deciding factors for each. Using a robo adviser is the best all-around choice for young investors because the fees are low and do not require much financial knowledge. The downside is that they only give you a number of model portfolios to choose from and not much customization. If you have some experience with investing then self-directing is a better choice. It's the lowest in fees as you are just paying for the trades but you need to make every financial decision yourself. If you are dealing with a huge sum of money like inheritance, then hiring a financial advisor is more suitable. They offer a full holistic approach but come with much higher fees and typically need investable assets of at least $250,000. The information is provided for Canadians but most of it still applies to the US market as well.
