The Big Picture for 2019
Wow! Markets just rallied 18% in 7 weeks from the Dec Lows. That is more than 7 of the last 10 years of this Bull Market. While Earnings improved considerably during the last 10 year Bull, much of the rally was from the FED printing historical amounts of Money. The Fed printing is over, and we now have $22 Trillion on Debt (US DEBT Clock).
So if you plan to Buy & Hold and continue to make good money like over the last 10 years, you will probably become very frustrated. There is not an UNLIMITED amount of Money to go into Stocks Markets. and the FED is no longer Buying, and Insiders are mostly Selling. So if the Markets are now at Equilibrium (same amount of Buyers & Sellers) then Market Timing might be your answer. The Solution for many and the 401K type Investor might be to only Buy in the Green Zone of this Chart, and take profits in the Red Zone.
02/17/2019: Markets were up big for the week as Good News poured in. So Tammy panic Sold in Dec. on Bad News, and is now hopping back in on Good News? Remember, Smart Money Buys on Bad News, and Sells on Good News.
