The Cost Of Food In 2022

According to the Department of Agriculture food at home prices will be up ten to eleven percent in throughout 2022 year on year and food away from home will be a slightly less painful at six and a half to seven and a half percent year on year higher than 2021. Consumers are making ends meet by buying cheaper cuts of meat, etc. Drought throughout agricultural areas of the West and especially areas affected by rationing of irrigation water from the Colorado River will likely drive prices even higher for affected items.

Personal Finances And The Economy

Many, many Americans are like mice running on an exercise wheel, going faster and faster and getting nowhere. Employment numbers are wonderful with unemployment at the lowest in decades and more Americans working that ever before. Wages have gone up a bit and things should be just fine. But more work and higher pay for so many Americans is getting sucked away by higher costs. For the average family food makes up ten percent of their budget. Transportation and utilities which are driven by energy costs make up a quarter. Add housing (rental crisis and mortgage lender crisis) and you have half of the American family budget.

Inflation And Options Trading

As Options Traders we can potentially make money no matter how the economy is doing and no matter which way the market is headed. However, this does not happen by chance. We routinely talk about what is happening with the DRINC crowd, or acronym for Democrats, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China. We always hedge our trades. And we pay close attention to the details of issues such as how inflation drives the economy and markets.
