Podcast: Volatility Creates OpportunityJul. 27, 2022
This week, the Fed raised its key interest rate by another 75 basis points in an effort to tame inflation. As we teeter between a soft and hard landing, could this aggressive move tip the scales? In today’s episode, portfolio managers Alfred Lee, Matt Montemurro, and your host, Mark Raes, discuss how the market seems to be striking off bad news. They also look at mid-year tax-loss selling, a big week for Nasdaq companies, and a potential commodity supercycle.
Mark Raes is the Head of Product at BMO Global Asset Management. He is joined on the podcast by Alfred Lee and Matt Montemurro, Portfolio Managers and ETF Specialists at BMO Global Asset Management. The episode was recorded live on July 27, 2022.
