Put & Call Implied Volatility Mismatch? | US Dollar vs S&P 500 Correlation | Sticky Inflation | Japan Recession | Explaining Why Stocks Go Up (or down)

Derek Moore and Jay Pestrichelli, CEO of ZEGA Financial, follow up on last week’s PE ratio (useless?) discussion explaining how stocks go up or down based on earnings, multiples, and other factors. Then they delve into correlations between the US Dollar Index and the S&P 500 Index. Later, the surprising fact that as Japan’s Nikkei Index makes 35-year all-time highs they are in a technical recession. Finally, more evidence shows that inflation may be stickier and some that it may not. As always, they’ll have some recommendations!
