​Is The Market Signaling Another Massive Selloff?

Remember, just a few months ago in February, ​the markets ​had a severe and sudden plunge. Investors and money managers were too surprised to take any action.

They just sat there looking at their screens in amazement while the indices made severe intraday moves, up and down, as investors tried to determine what was causing the volatility.

On February 2, the computers of the algo-trading firms had taken over, causing moves that made no real sense. The following Monday, February 5, the DJI plunged from a loss of 900 points to a loss of 1600 points in virtually minutes, closing

Another Market Selloff, A Bigger Warning Sign?

Once again this week the markets plunged on a Friday, this time seeing the Dow plummet 767 points intraday.

Amid all the geopolitical risk and tariff threats, the investment markets are experiencing volatility many experienced and seasoned investors have never seen.

When analyzing the price/volume trends, we see incredibly important signals in our technicals that suggest perhaps the bull market could be running out of steam and we may have already seen the highs of the year.

How You Can Know if a Crisis or a Continued Bull Market is Ahead!

The markets are now experiencing volatility that we haven’t seen in quite some time. Just last week the Dow lost over 1400 points! Then, this past Monday, it soared 669 points, the third biggest point gain on the Dow ever and its biggest point gain since 2008.

However, on Tuesday, the markets sold off once again as the Dow plummeted triple digits for the third time in four days.

I See Warning Signs Similar to 2008

The world’s financial markets are getting very challenging. Currently, there is a big debate whether the markets are destined for a 1929 type of crash or if the bull market will continue for several more years.

My firm and I have a very specific opinion, something no analyst in the media has mentioned. You see, I started my firm in January 1977. In 1978 I made the forecast that seemed ‘outlandish’ to Wall Street analysts. But they came true over the next 1-2 years.

Bulls and Bears: Beware of this Market Rally

Markets oscillate, they don’t go in a straight line. Novice investors often don’t realize that. When I speak at a conference, and for example I am bullish on the stock market, an investor will come up and say, “But you’re wrong because the stock market was down the past two days.”

Such an investor should buy US Treasuries and go golfing.

Oscillations and waves occur everywhere in the universe. Did you hear about the recent discovery of “gravity waves” the existence of which was predicted by Einstein? Finally they have instrument to prove their existence.

Is Gold Making A Triumphant Comeback?

Analyzing the long term economic and market cycles, the probability is very high that the stock market downturn may eventually be the worst since the Great Depression. Of course, there are many more safety nets now, and the central banks of the world will coordinate in order to soften a decline. But the Fed and other central bankers are not the solution. They are the problem.

All the ‘safety nets’ have to be paid for with money the governments don’t have. Therefore, it will have to be financed with ‘money creation’ by their central banks.

Is It Too Late For Investors To Panic?

In the first phase of a devastating bear market, such as early 2008, analysts always say, “Don’t panic. No one ever made money panicking.”

Our reply is that panicking is very productive at times. Panic is a protective response built into all life forms. It triggers the flow of adrenalin, which initiates a “fight or flight” response giving you either more speed when running away, or more energy to fight and make decisions.

Why The Next Two Years Could Be Worse Than 2008

On December 16, the Fed hiked interest rates by 0.25% as widely expected. The majority of analysts had predicted that because almost every Fed official coming into the media had made the case for a hike for several months.

In other words, the members of the FOMC had made up their minds, no matter what the facts were.

I wrote in our award-winning Wellington Letter that a hike would lead to a severe reduction of liquidity, and thus a strong market plunge in 2016.
