High inflation also happens in European countries. UK, Germany and France are just keep quiet and raise the interest rate higher quietly.
No issue and the European stock markets are breaking new highs.

The US made a lot of noise on inflation especially this Powell, the stock markets are down.
Can't he raise the interest rate higher quietly and avoid any speech that can affect the stock market in the US.
High inflation also happened in 2008, the inflation rate went down quickly in less than a year.

I believe Powell is not doing a good job to control the inflation in the US.

JP Morgan CEO already said interest rates will have to move above 6% if Fed aims at inflation of 2%. Now Fed is changing the definition of inflation to exclude energy bills and house rentals. Sure Fed can achieve its 2% by moving its goal post.

Many issues face the investors in the stock market. Interest rates, inflation, recession, geopolitical events, energy prices, commodity prices, trade competitions, etc, etc.

As an investor, I buy a business. Just stay focus on the business. Bottom up approach is my way to go.
