without commenting on 'why today' we can simply look at markets that are more directly affected, like Europe and see core sovereign debt rallying much more sharply

What else, Sung? It's the only news line, frankly the data says we should be in the red.

You have to take a percentage of the IRA balance, no? You can't use 100% due to value movement.

Is the IRA subject to market movement? If so, then isn't 70% of the balance/monthly distributions?

could be Ukraine-related as well. Some earlier wires and one story suggest impending civil war. Another more recent wire says Ukrainian government has identified Russian military in Slovyansk

yeah, interesting times, in that it seems that some more attention might be paid to inflation in the coming months, but much like the prospect of rising yields, the question is one of sustainability. Maybe I'm missing something about the recovery, but how can higher prices or yields be sustained in any meaningful way? 3% 10yr and 1.8 CPI? sure, but around 3.5% and 2.0 CPI, seems like things would get dicey.

Anyone know how a vet can get a copy of his DD214? VA is requiring it for a COE and he has no clue where it is.

most want the Dr, to move their deposit accounts over, but in exchange for low to no down payment with NO MI is usually a pretty good deal

Food, energy, and health care---three things that are essential to life as we know it. And food and energy are excluded from their calculations? Why bother to do the calculations at all if this is the case.

I'm sure health care providers, Medicare oriented doctors, and alert personal injury lawyers will now consider it their patriotic duty to singlehandedly raise health care spending whenever possible. Next up, oil company executives will strive to raise energy costs to help the Fed raise inflation to its desired levels.

if he said it was getting worse, their stock would be down even more. He gave an answer that basically says that residential lending sucks.
