Quick heads up. Recession is in the works. It will be here in the near future. It has nothing to do with the economic conditions within the US but the supply of dollars in the world economy. We have a liquidity problem. 1. Fed is selling the multitude of bonds it acquired in 2008 and beyond, so it's buying dollars. 2. The treasury is building a surplus of dollars so that it can have sufficient funds for 2019 tax cuts. Good in the long run, will create a shortage in dollars short term. Emerging markets are taking a beating because they lack dollars to settle transactions as they do not trust each other enough to settle in their own currencies. Global speculators are pulling out as we speak. Takeaway: Don't be holding stocks or bonds.... dollars are your huckleberry. If you are holding inventory at high prices, get rid of it and re-stock after Christmas. We could see a 50% correction in stocks. The top is in, fyi.
