A Trip to Financial Sense


I was recently interviewed on regarding the DecisionPoint outlook in the short, intermediate and long terms. What seemed to get the most notice was that I said that it wasn't out of the question that we could be preparing for a new bull market leg. Admittedly, intuition (built on experience of course) has been niggling me about a crash, not a new bull market. Yet, I'm seeing signs that we are lining up for a breakout and a move higher. Though the market is experiencing very overbought conditions, in a bull market they aren't necessarily a recipe for disaster. The overall bull market bias can overcome.

Carl talked about in his recent articles, "Wait! Was that a Bear Market" and "Bull Market: How Old is It?", that there is a strong bull market bias and the wild volatility with sideways "consolidation" starting in 2015 and continuing until the last breakout from all-time highs last month, could be all we're going to get as far as a bear market.

I recommend you check out the short podcast interview at this link. You can also look at the article written by Cris Sheridan that introduces the interview here.
