Posted on August 24, 2020
June 2002 In the stock market “These are the times that try men’s (& women’s) souls.” As we head toward the lows made in the Dow last September, investor discouragement rises commensurately. A couple of things come to mind that I would like to pass along. Important low points are rarely made without being tested […]

Economic Forecasting

Economic Forecasting Exists to Make Astrology Look Respectable  We are sometimes queried by clients regarding where we think the market will be in six months or next year.

Fright Mode

Posted on March 01, 2020
Thoughts While Viewing the Market in Fright Mode As we write this, the stock market appears to be in a free-fall. The Dow is down around 1,800 points having fallen 2,100 already this morning.

Sudden Stock Market Corrections

Posted on February 15, 2018
Sudden Stock Market Corrections  (Or as Yogi would say… “It’s Deja vu all over again”)   Market corrections happen frequently. History tells us a correction of 5-10% occurs nearly each year, and every three years or so a 10-20% correction comes along. In bull markets, the drops tend to be sharp and fast and they […]

Extended bull markets have always been interrupted by episodic declines, better known as correct ions.
