 The global Quad 4 recession extending through the first half of 2023

 The calculus behind peak inflation, how the Fed will handle it, and how that impacts investors

 The U.S. earnings recession resulting from the "Mother of All Bubbles" popping

Since we kicked off 2022, investors (who 'just kept buying') have been eviscerated. Here's a snapshot of markets this year:

  • The S&P 500 has fallen over -18%
  • Russell 2000 was walloped -20% 
  • The NASDAQ has been crushed over -28%
  • Bitcoin got eviscerated to nearly -50%

It's the worst start of the year for markets in decades; nearly $8,000,000,000,000 of the S&P 500's market cap has been wiped out. EIGHT. TRILLION.

Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough began signaling #Quad4 (i.e. a bear market crash caused by decelerating inflation and economic growth) back in September of 2021. Our Macro team has made critical pivots along the way, helping investors capitalize on many opportunities.

Watch the six minute video below to see just how we did it.

"The Russell 2000 in short order will be down -20% or more from its cycle peak. I think the NASDAQ's going to crash too, it won't take long."

-Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough on the January 27, 2022 edition of The Macro Show.

At the heart of Hedgeye's mission is to bring best in-class, institutional investment research to all investors... and COACHING investors on how to view markets like (and oftentimes, better than) the pros.

In the clip below from The Macro Show, Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough described how hedge fund leverage and exposures were influencing the #Quad4 market dynamics.

How did we position subscribers?

Here's a quick rundown of our ETF signals per our ETF Pro product since January (not to mention the daily calls and risk management coaching from our Risk-Manager-in-Chief):

March 21, 2022: We shorted the NASDAQ (QQQ) and the Russell 2000 (IWM). QQQ is down -17% and IWM is down -13%, since.
