The whole market is overvalued and due for a correction.
Top that with overseas uncertainty (political and economic). Throw in the worst drought in California history. Have you noticed what beef prices have climbed to? Stagflation is imminent. Consumer confidence is starting to drop from it's not so lofty perch.
The US economy is like the bamboo scaffolding on a hastily constructed Malay sky rise. Smart money bailed out a while ago. Don't be drinking your Champaign in the unfinished penthouse when this sucker comes crashing down.
The phony Obama economy is about to come crashing down......
We have a 40% unemployment rate (see Labor Force Participation Rate) and nobody has any disposable income left after paying for ObowelMovement Care.....
No one knows what's going to happen for sure, but the fact is that the Fed has thrown trillions of dollars at the markets for one reason, and one reason only, and that was to keep stock prices going up so that people would feel better about their accounts. It was, and is, all based on the simple premise that if people think their investments are doing well, then they will think the economy is doing well, or, at the very least, believe that it is starting to turn in the right direction. The problem, of course, is that you can only maintain that illusion for so long. There will come a point where the illusion of Wall Street and the reality of Main Street becomes so disconnected that the illusion becomes apparent for what it is. That is starting to happen now.
Many people thought that when the markets went up because the Fed finally announced the long anticipated cut back, that it was a sign the markets could stand on their own. I'll never claim to be a market guru, but unfortunately, the average investor doesn't follow the markets closely enough to recognize trends and signs, which those of us who do follow the markets on a daily basis, have been seeing for quite a while now. That is not to imply that it takes a rocket scientist to be able to see such things, but that one does have to make a conscious effort to pay attention to what is happening in the markets and educate yourself about what to look for. Unless you have a keen interest in the markets, I would submit that most people don't do that.
As I said, no one knows what will happen for sure, but history shows that in many cases, things often do not end well when the magician runs out of tricks.
