It’s not a good time to bet against the stock markets.
They have a long track record of losing money, and this year has been no exception.
Here are five reasons why.1.
The U.S. economy is a messThe economy has been in a state of severe disarray for years.
The government is struggling to meet the challenges of the new Trump administration, the Federal Reserve is preparing to raise interest rates again, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has warned the financial system could collapse.2.
The Federal Reserve and the Fed itself have lost control3.
The Fed’s quantitative easing programs have backfired4.
There is no end in sight to the Federal Debt5.
The market is still betting on the futureWhile the stock exchanges have done an excellent job of predicting the coming year’s volatility, the stock indexes have lost about 80% of their value since December 2020.
That makes stocks appear a lot less valuable this year than they were a year ago.
Investors are likely to focus their buying on the U.s. economy, which is struggling, and have made a huge bet on the markets, which have also shown signs of trouble.
Investors are betting on stocks that have been underperforming for years, and they are making big profits on those stocks.
That has driven the stock price of the S&P 500 index to an all-time high, and stocks that are underperforming have been the hottest stocks on the market in recent weeks.
Investor enthusiasm is strong, and it appears that investors will be buying stocks until the stock bubble pops.
It is hard to see how investors can sell their stocks before that happens.
In other words, stocks should be worth what they were last year.
If they do not have a strong rebound, investors should not be buying them, and if they do have a weak rebound, they should sell them.
