I was quite taken aback by how strong the January Payrolls reading was. While I did not necessarily expect deceleration or a counter-cyclical reading (my view for the balance of 2023) of some kind, this was stunning and unexpected.

Although I did not expect it, I did expect what it could kick off in the interim to where we are going in 2023. Hello Uncle Buck? Hello Gold/Silver ratio? Hello 2 Horsemen of the Apocalypse? Are you still riding? The inflation stuff could be most vulnerable if these two ride again.
