“Inflation is at an ATH” and “the market is going to crash” don’t fucking go together

So listen up. Y’all gonna preach that inflation is super fucking high and money is devaluing quick af and also say it’s fucking unsustainable that market is up 120% in the last 2 years or so.

If it’s the currency losing value quick, isn’t it unsurprising that the market is going to perform good? I mean, it’s an alternative value holder to currency.

Let me show you a smooth brained example. Say you are a farmer like 1000 years ago, and you buy a cow for 10 gold coins. Now, let’s say your retarded kingdom faces an inflation so high it causes the price of the cow to go up 1 gold coin each year. Now, after 10 years, your cow is worth 20 gold coins! Did you make money? Fuck no, it’s just that gold coins lost value and cows did not.

You wouldn’t fucking talk about “the imminent crash of cow prices” if everything went up in price just because the cows did too.

And for those of you who think inflation isn’t real? Two years ago, I bought a cheeseburger at McDonald’s for 1€, now it’s worth like 1,40€. I would also buy a protein shake at my local gym for 1€, now it costs 1,40€. The kebab place I frequented would cost 2€ per kebab, now it’s like 2,90€ or some shit.

If you look past the March 2020 dip, we are only up some 42% at the SPY ATH. Going back to the previous cheeseburger / protein shake / kebab example, those prices are also up some 40%. This is irrefutable proof that it’s not actually market going up, but currency going down and market adjusting.

So saying “this growth is unsustainable” and “we are in for a correction” is fucking retarded if you think stocks only go up (which they do) since in theory, stocks have gone up 0% in the past 2 years (going back the the previous cheeseburger example). Unless the prices of cheeseburgers also correct down, I don’t see market correcting itself by a huge margin. If you think stocks only go up, that is. Which you do.

This is obviously not financial or investment advice. If you didn’t gather it from the cow example, I’m fucking retarded. This is a crazy man’s rambling
