GM. This is Milk Road, we're like Costco for crypto, but without the hot dogs.

Here’s what’s in stock today:

  • Meme season is in full swing 😲

  • Inflation numbers are here 💯

  • How much bull market is left? 🐂

  • New stablecoin: set your own interest rate 🍪



All eyes are on one thing right now… memecoins. 

In case you haven’t been following, here are the top-performing ones over the last 7 days:

So why are memecoins pumping so much? 

There’s a big theory to why, and here are 4 things you should know:

1/ The Roaring Kitty thesis

Keith Gill, aka Roaring Kitty, an individual heavily linked to GameStop's parabolic rise in 2021, came back with a cryptic meme Sunday night:

And this has every internet sleuth asking… What IS Roaring Kitty’s goal?

The account posted almost a dozen cryptic videos yesterday. This included clips from well-known movies like Avengers to Ocean’s Eleven. 

Which had everyone wondering “is it really about GameStop?” or was the message about AMC – a major movie theater chain?

Regardless of Roaring Kitty's reasons, one fact's clear: Every meme on earth is pumping right now

2/ Cat memes soared

Our favorite cryptic video? 

“The dog days are over”– this sent cat related memes through the roof 😅 

$KITTY, which has been around prior to Roaring Kitty’s recent revival, was up 12,000%!

3/ Fed weighed in

Fed chair Clayton chimed in that this shouldn’t even be legal in the stock market…

But the meme degens are already ahead of him, making Solana memecoins for a handful of stocks:

4/ There’s a twist…

Could this all be part of the matrix and Keith Gill actually sold his account back in April?

Some think so…

A handful of accounts started circulating this DM screenshot from April 24th, 2024 with “time to come clean”…. suggesting Gill may have sold the account.

However, a big asterisk here as this account is known for trolling and this post even made it to Reddit.

Welp… that’s enough of meme degen rabbit hole for today 😂

🥛 Milk Road Take: When the GameStop saga first began it was a trad-fi revolution against the system and taking on “the man”. 

This is the core narrative and ethos for crypto too – don’t forget it…

But these are purely memecoins and don’t represent actual shares of a company!

We want to know, did you jump in on the Roaring Kitty hype?

A/ Yes

B/ No

Ladies & gents, the results are in.

The latest U.S. CPI (Consumer Price Index) numbers for April came out this morning.

Inflation eased slightly from last month. Right in line with expectations and the markets seem to like it!

Prices of goods are still rising, just not as fast as prior months. AKA the average price of goods & services is 3.4% more expensive than a year ago 🤬

PPI (producer price index) was released Tuesday. Both headline & core PPI accelerated in April from March numbers 🥵 

Core PPI now at 2.4% YoY, up from 2.1%.

We have a full inflation sandwich in our stomach to digest!

While the headline number was in line with estimates, some categories are still seeing big price hikes:

  • Shelter costs: +5.5%

  • Transportation services: +11.2%

  • Services (excluding energy): +5.3%

And remember, The Milk Road Daily Newsletter: still free

🥛 Milk Road Take: A small step in the right direction, but not yet at the 2% goal of the FED, which many believe will delay the FED from lowering rates.

We don’t see it that way. If inflation doesn’t continue to go higher (which we don’t think it will) then the FED has more important things on their mind (i.e. unemployment rising, bank failures, trillions in national debt).

The FED is sitting between a rock and a hard place – having to decide what is more important:

  • ~3% inflation

  • or defaulting on their debt payments (and those are HUGE)

The Milk Man believes the latter is more important and the FED will end up lowering rates sooner than later. They may have no choice 🤷

That said, it’s still anyone's guess. Buckle up, it could still be a Rocky Road ahead. (and we ain't talkin' Ben & Jerry’s ice cream)

Note: Remember the news swirling about coffee prices being removed from CPI calculation? Turns out it was just certain packaging sizes, not coffee entirely.



We believe that 50% of the bull market has passed.

We also believe that the remaining 50% can bring the biggest gains for smart investors.

This could be the biggest opportunity for you right now – and today, we tell you how we play our cards to properly capitalize.
