Regardless of what others might say, there is no quick fix for the economy.
To illustrate this point, a friend of mine recently sent me a chart which I would like to share with you. This charts shows that we may be going into a prolonged period of no growth overall in the stock market. The NASDAQ peaked at 5,132.52 on March 10th, 2000. The NASDAQ market is in many ways more important than the DOW, and should be considered more of a leading indicator. If that is truly the case, then we have been in a bear market for the last eight years.
I expect to see a prolonged economic climate that is not conducive for stocks to move higher. However, there will be pockets of opportunity where certain markets and sectors will move higher.
All in all, this is not a rosy picture for either the US or world economy. As I have said many times on this blog, these are trading markets and not markets to hold long-term.
Trading throughout the balance of this decade and into the early part of the next decade is going to be the key to survival and for recovering the profits in your portfolio. We strongly recommend that you approach these markets with some level of expertise and knowledge of technical trading.
The future is going to be the future and we need to take advantage of every moment and prepare ourselves to be the very best we can be in whatever business or endeavor we are pursuing.
Every success in the future,
