"Sell in May &
Sell in May and Go Away ... an old
adage that got proved right once again.
IBD changed its call to "Market in Confirmed Uptrend" on Thursday...
well, I am not so sure about that.
Supply chain problems and rising interest rates will cause turmoil in
the U.S. and world economies.
The U.S. housing market is in free fall thanks to the FED and rising
interest rates. Take a look at lumber prices ... down 50% from its
highs. Inflation continues in the U.S. at record rates.
The FED is unable to see the harm rising interest rates have on the
economy. Politicians also fail to understand that rising deficits are
simply added quicksand for the U.S. dollar which is losing respect
throughout the world of high finance.
Attempts to keep the price of gold and silver from exploding will
finally fail and then the U.S. dollar's role as the world's reserve
currency will fail.
Rising interest rates leave the FED will huge losses on its portfolio of
U.S. debt instruments.
Remember -- "Only purchasing power counts!"
Setting definitive action points for held positions will be key to
retaining profits in this market.
It is difficult to find long-term trading opportunities with the
future so uncertain.
Be careful ....We live in interesting times but safety in your investments
should be a major concern going forward.
Remember to ... "Keep It Safe, Simple and Stay Focused!" going
