Darius Dale: Progressing Through The Fed Tightening Cycle

On today's episode of "On the Margin", Darius Dale CEO of 42 Macro joins the show for a discussion on the Fed's tightening cycle.

By tracking the effects of liquidity on financial markets, Darius shares his framework for assessing the current tightening cycle the Fed is embarked on in their quest to fight inflation. While 2020 and 2021 saw markets soar to new highs in a liquidity cycle & growth upturn, 2022 has seen the opposite as the liquidity cycle downturns. In order to understand the market cycle, you must first understand the liquidity cycle, but to hear that, you'll have to tune in!
