October 31, 2015: Danger, Will Robinson!

This is a tricky market…

For a long period, the market was moving up and to fight the Fed was to tilt at windmills. Then in May of this year the market started to rollover and was down for a couple of months. But, like a Phoenix, it is again rising from the ashes.

But, here is the problem. This is all Fed driven, once again. The fundamentals of the US and world economies are terrible and the external shock risks are huge. That said, the Fed (despite the notes released on 10/28) is unlikely to raise until 2017 (in my opinion). If the market comes to believe that the Fed will hold off on an increase, the market could well go higher. If it thinks it will raise, everything could unravel quickly. If it does raise, the markets could unravel.

So, what’s a boy to do? We are at an inflection point and you need to be prepared to react quickly, no matter which way the market goes. You need up market and down market strategies. In today’s show, we discuss all of these ideas. Because of the complexity of today’s situation, I am going to be teaching a special one day class on this topic a couple times in November. If you would like free tickets to the class, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about it on the Next Week In Stocks website. Hope to see you there!

October 17, 2017: No Free Lunch

Today we discussed the Democrats debate and the Walmart swoon and tied them together. The bottom line, is that there is no free lunch. Until wealth (not money) is created, there will be no real growth and no sustainable increase in wages. We talked a little about the Fed (still don’t see a rate increase before 2017), latest GDP Now forecast (.9%), drops in exports, rise in imports and inventories, and what it all means for the economy going forward. We also did a little political speculation. If Hillary is not indicted, the right will go nuts, ditto for the left if she does. There is no more trust in our institutions (outside of the military), people on both sides just cheer when their side “wins”. This is not healthy for the country.

After the debate on 10/13:   HRC cannot be beaten in the primaries. The others are simply too weak and there is now no opening for Biden or Warren. That said, if she is indicted, she will be taken out at the convention, if not before. If that happens, my money is still on Warren.

The market is in an interesting place. It has taken out 1960 and 1980 to the upside on the S&P. It is struggling with 2000. Watch for a move above 2020 for more upside, otherwise gravity will likely take over and we will probably see the 1800’s again.

Bad news is once again good news, but there is likely a lot of bad news to come, maybe too much to still be good news. I am going to be doing a special one day class on my Market Forecast for the rest of 2015 and the first half of 2016.

October 10, 2015: Recovery?

The market has been up for several days in a row, but it still (as of 9:40pm on 10/7/2015) has yet to break above key supply levels and volume has been weak. Is this what a recovery looks like?

This week we went beyond the macro and the markets and focused on recently announced layoffs. There have been dozens in just the last 30 days. This is after trillions of dollars in debt and spending, at a time when the Fed is supposed to raise rates as we hit “liftoff”. Again, is this what a recovery looks like?

Beyond this, we discussed alternatives to stocks for income, regardless of market conditions. As I pointed out, stocks are actually one of the worst ways to build wealth and grow income in times like these, but it is what most people are taught, because that is how Wall Street makes its money. If you want to learn about alternatives, like Options, Futures and Currency trading, I am going to be doing a special one day class on trading these asset classes.

October 3, 2015: Fasten Your Seatbelts, We Are Expecting Turbulence Ahead…

This show was recorded on Wednesday evening, September 30. Today, Russia started bombing Syria, at least 17 bombs went off in one city in China, all Fed regions reported negative growth for the first time since 2009 and ADP reported that we have lost manufacturing jobs year-to-date, also for the first time since 2009. There is an Emerging Market crisis on the horizon, the EU is at risk, China is slowing down precipitously, the world is likely headed to recession and everyone wonders when the Fed will raise rates… Again, I don’t see the Fed raising before 2017 at the earliest and easing/negative interest rates are more likely than an increase. That said, if they do raise, lookout. It could get ugly in a hurry in both the stock and housing markets.

Overall the market continues to weaken. Watch the response to this week’s jobs numbers. My guess is that even if you get an initial bounce, it won’t hold and the down move will start again next week. But you may not even get a bounce.

Knowing how to invest in this type of environment is key. If you would like to learn more about what to do now, I am going to be teaching a special one day class: “How to trade and invest in a volatile market”.
