2022 is off to a very poor start for both stocks and bonds, but it isn’t all bad. In our latest LPL Street View video, LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick discusses some good news and some bad news.

Higher inflation, a slowing economy, geopolitical concerns, and a hawkish Fed are all well-known worries and could continue to hinder any stock bounces. Additionally, midterm years don’t see stocks usually bottom until the second half of the year. But it isn’t all bad news, as the U.S. consumer is still very healthy, corporate America is in good shape, earnings are strong, and overall sentiment is quite pessimistic, which can be bullish from a contrarian point of view.
