"Interest rates fall from here" ..... What is this guy smokin' ???
Interest rates are already at 0%. what does this guy expect? Negative interest rates?
This author offers high risk options to hedge teh risk of the market with the exception of going to cash.
Cash? Can you say duh? What a worthless article. Not to mention most investor are not sophistcated enough to do most of what is offered.
Article FORGETS/OVERLOOKS that So much money is being added/dumped blindly in to the market via 401k. The 401k is most Employees only option to save for retirement, save on taxes and get free company match money.
From my perspective , the stock market is a way for investment companies, to steal money legally. They charge Fees and trade for their own interests to increase there profits.
So my point is they (investment firms) are learning that you can kill a sheep only once but shear it many times.
I believe the market will continue to have volatility but rise slowly until the government starts regulating.
The most important thing Wall Street must do is get you to constantly be doing something... anything, as long as it generates fees, commissions, and trading margins for them. They don’t have to be right on their calls, they just have to be convincing.
In my years of investing, I’ve discovered the most difficult and often most profitable thing to do is…do nothing.
LOL....this author seems to always be doom and gloom! I read people saying that in comments a month or two ago so I've been watching and it's funny that the market keeps hitting new highs while we are being told to sell.

"It has to go down...eventually I'll be right...." comes to mind....
Didn't think so...

But it requires patience and steadiness, above all it requires you ignore types like Tony
Wall Street has purchased our government - mostly the Republicans because they love the system and are in agreement with Wall Streets values - but they own both parties - yes even the tea party Republicans - the system has been set up so that candidates can't get elected without Wall Street.
Wall Street is never satisfied, they want your Medicare dollars, Social Security dollars, your 401K until there is
nothing left - it is all consuming.
They are counting on the stupidity of Americans to keep choosing R's of D's to bicker against each other and name call while they steal the rug out from underneath you but until we wake up
Due to so much manipulation by shrewd multi-millionairs in the market...the average investor should probably just do the opposite of what they think would be the right move.
