Have we Hit a Low in Inflation & Interest Rates?

One of the biggest items impacting the stock market the past several years has been all-time or near all-time low interest rates and by definition, low actual and expected inflation rates.  Eventually this long, long trend will end and we will begin on a new leg of rising inflation.  What will cause that is any one’s guess.

Soybean ETF (SOYB) – Weekly Chart

The long-term trend in Soybeans has been lower … eventually, supply and demand forces will reverse that trend.  The weekly chart has been in the condition of contraction in terms of trend strength, the past 7 weeks.  Any squeeze higher will possibly break a multi-year downtrend and possibly be a coincident sign of a generational low in inflation/interest rates being made.
