New Year: New Economic Boom? Why 2010 Should Be One to Remember

By Nico Isaac

Close-up of a stack of gifts

In the realm of market psychology, there’s a big difference between optimism and extreme optimism. The first is seeing the glass half full. The second is seeing the glass half full deep in the heart of a bone-dry desert. In finance, it’s what we call "Buying the Dip" mentality — when all outcomes, even losses, are cause for celebration.

We are there now.

To wit: With a new year upon us, the mainstream has already come up with a fresh tagline to define the next 360-or so days. It even rhymes: The Bull Runs Again In 2010. This projection is in no way "in spite of" the fact that the U.S. stock market just finished its first decade of negative returns since the Great Depression; it’s because of that fact. 

See, according to the mainstream experts, this "Lost Decade" of abysmal stock performance (in which the Dow ended 9% in the red, the S&P 500 – 24%, and the NASDAQ Composite – 44%) is the very foundation on which a new bull market will apparently be born. One economic scholar recently coined the phenomenon the "Slingshot Effect" — the more severe the downturn, the faster the recovery. (Associated Press)

Adding to the upbeat chorus are these recent news items:

"The horrible decade has wiped out all the excesses of the previous two decades and put us back on track for more normal returns." (USA Today) — AND — "It may be the best of all possible worlds." (Business News)

Back in the late 1990s, when the "unstoppable" NASDAQ began to experience regular days of double-digit drops, it was "Buy-the-Dip." Now, it’s "buy the entire lost decade." And, as the Dec.31, 2009 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast Short Term Update reveals — current sentiment readings "continue to show that stock market bears have packed up and moved to Florida for the winter."

The Dec. 31 Short Term Update also reveals two mind-blowing charts of the S&P 500 versus Investor Intelligence Advisors Survey Percentage of Bears — AND, the S&P 500 versus the percentage of "Fully Committed" bullish advisors since 2000. The current reading

Robert Prechter’s Report: 2010

Elliott Wave International is offering a free report on Robert Prechter’s outlook for 2010.  Here’s what they have to say--essentially, permabear Prechter did not turn into a bull last March; he’s a still a bear, and now the hibernation is over. – Ilene

Robert Prechter’s Report: 2010

NYSE Columns

Recall the prevailing investor sentiment from this time last year …

U.S. stocks had been in strong decline for more than a year. Some of the most celebrated bulls had turned into bears, and the few bears that did exist before the downturn had become even more bearish. The Daily Sentiment Index for the S&P registered an astonishing 3 percent bulls — virtually no one was betting on the upside — and the bleakest of forecasts for 2009 called for nothing short of financial apocalypse.

But well-known contrarian analyst Robert Prechter took the opposite side of the trade. Prechter, a long-time bear, emerged as a bullish voice among overwhelming bearishness:

"The market is compressed, and when it finds a bottom and rallies, it will be sharp and scary for anyone who is short."

In the following days, the mainstream media reported that "perma-bear" Robert Prechter had turned bullish — the reports were only half true. Prechter had, in fact, turned intermediate-term bullish, but he stopped short of recommending average investors to jump back in. Why?

Prechter saw something on the horizon that the shortsighted mainstream market watchers did not, which brings me to the untold portion of this story …

In Prechter’s eyes, the bear market is far from over, and what he expects to happen after the current rally ends is significantly important to how you position your portfolio now.

Download "The Most Important Investment Report You’ll Read in 2010." Inside, Prechter reveals his big-picture outlook for U.S. stocks and the U.S. economy. He examines the government’s unprecedented involvement in the financial markets and private enterprise.

Trump's $50 Billion Farm Deal Is Fantasy After Trade War Market Shifts

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Industry insiders have told South China Morning Post (SCMP) that President Trump's alleged $50 billion agriculture deal with China is merely a fantasy, used to stimulate his Farm Belt supporters ahead of an election year, and even used as a communication tool to drive the stock market to new highs. Still, the likelihood of it actually happening is very low.

SCMP notes that China has never confirmed the $50 to ...

Dow Jones cycle update and are we there yet?

Courtesy of Read the Ticker

Today the Dow and the SP500 are making new all time highs. However all long and strong bull markets end on a new all time high. Today no one knows how many new all time highs are to go, maybe 1 or 100+ more to go, who knows! So are we there yet?

readtheticker.com combine market tools from Richard Wyckoff, Jim Hurst and William Gann to understand and forecast price action. In concept terms (in order), demand and supply, market cycles, and time to price analysis. 

Cycle are excellent to understand the wider picture, after all markets do not move in a straight line and bear markets do follow bull markets.

Is Bitcoin a Macro Asset?

As part of Coindesk’s popup podcast series centered around today’s Invest conference, I answered a few questions for Nolan Bauerly about Bitcoin from a wealth management perspective. I decided in December of 2017 that investing directly into crypto currencies was unnecessary and not a good use of a portfolio’s allocation slots. I remain in this posture today but I am openminded about how this may change in the future.

Silver Testing This Support For The First Time In 8-Years!

Its been a good while since Silver bulls could say that it is testing support. Well, this week that can be said! Will this support test hold? Silver Bulls sure hope so!

This chart looks at Silver Futures over the past 10-years. Silver has spent the majority of the past 8-years inside of the pink shaded falling channel, as it has created lower highs and lower lows.

Silver broke above the top of this falling channel around 90-days ago at (1). It quickly rallied over 15%, before creating a large bearish reversal pattern, around 5-weeks after the bre...

Today's Fed POMO TOMO FOMC Alphabet Soup Unspin

Courtesy of Lee Adler

But make no mistake, if the Fed wants money rates to stay down by another quarter, it will need to imagineer even more money.

That’s on top of the $281 billion it has already imagineered into existence since addressing its “one-off” repo market emergency on September 17. This came via  “Temporary” Repo Man Operations money, and $70.6 billion in Permanent Open Market Operations (POMO) money.

By my calculations that averages out to $7.4 billion per business day. That works out to a monthly pace of $155 billion or so.

If they keep this up, it will be more than enough to absorb every penny of new Treasury supply. That supply had caused the system to run out of money in mid September.  This flood of paper had been inundati...

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.

Still, the stock market has been better over the last 10 (7%) an...
