even in the best of economic times, markets have experienced more pullbacks and more significant longer lasting pullbacks than we've had over the past 12 to 18 months.
It's all Federal money. Not real people investing.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
i've bet heavily on more upside. I've come to the conclusion that its too obvious a short. Its going to keep going up.
The answer should be obvious. What are the alternatives? Bonds, Precious Metals, or Real Estate? None can outperform the leverage of equities helped along by the Feds ultra low rates.
Other than a few sectors to be shorted for two or three weeks at a time. Equities are the place to be.
No - Real estate has far more leverage if rates remain super low. Ex. Buy a $200K house with $20K down - in 6 months if rates continue low and even go lower, house could easily be $300K. Sell for $100K profit - 5 times the risk in just 6 months.
