DOES THE MARKET SIGNAL A MAJOR SELL-OFF OF 20% to 40% OR A SHORT -TERM CORRECTION? TRUMP SAYS THE FED IS "CRAZY"!
Our FEATURE today focuses on the major stock market sell-off that occurred last week. The "soothsayers" on Wall St were quick to respond as they always do: "You're in the market for the long term ; Don't try to time the market; Don't sell!; It's a buying opportunity ", etc. This mantra may be appropriate for those under age 60 who may live long enough for their assets to recover but what about those of us who in all probability may not live to see the market recover and will need to withdraw funds from our account to live on and for emergencies? We have suggested over the past several weeks that it was time "to take some money off the table in event the sell-off would continue". We hope that you did so. We discuss what could lie ahead and the factors that would support the continuation of the bull market and what could cause a bear market. Other topics include: The sudden increase in the gold price could signal the end of the cycle in financial assets and the beginning of hard assets, The US dollar correlates, Employees borrowing from their 401 (k)s and defaulting is impacting a secure retirement, Why China is growing more belligerent, Oil to $100/bbl?, GOOG's Good Server condemns free speech and Hillary says "You can not be civil" .
