    Has The Market Trend Shifted From Bull To Bear?

    Why the recent volatility may mark a secular shift
    by Brian Pretti

    Emotions are running high for the investment community in the wake of recent market volatility. Up until August, we had been in the third longest period in market history without a 10% correction. Since then, stock indices sold off hard, only to bounce once again over the past two weeks of trading.

    And certainly the truth is….No one knows. Especially in today’s world where global central banks can concoct further QE/monetary schemes at the drop of a hat.  Let’s face it, at this point the global central banks are all in. In fact, beyond all in. Without question, the US Fed knows that if equities fall, they lose the high end consumer. (Wal-Mart shoppers have already long been lost)

    Gravity Returns – The Market Drops Nearly 5% in 3 Days

    Years-long trends are finally breaking

    A month ago, in an analysis titled Defying Gravity, I wrote about the unsustainable state of the stock market's high prices.

    In it, I noted how the stock market had risen for an aberrantly-long time time without a correction, and that it hadn't even tested its 200-daily moving average price once since the beginning of 2012:

    How to Position Yourself for the Future: Step 1 – Financial Security

    by Chris Martenson

    What we care about most here is helping people adjust and adapt — happily, profitably, and safely — to what is likely to be a very different future.

    Our framework centers on the idea that humanity is facing a set of predicaments quite unlike anything else in the history books. Because this time there are no borders to cross in search of safety; the entire world is involved. On a global basis, we’ve never experienced collective debt loads of this magnitude. Never before has an entire set of intertwined currency systems — all debt-based money — collectively been backed by nothing more than the hope of a larger future, and never before have this many people had to figure out how to move from more-concentrated to less-concentrated energy sources (from fossil fuels to sun- and wind-based alternatives). 

    The convergence of exponential trends in population, energy depletion, debt accumulation, and an economic model that is hooked on growth will combine to produce quite an interesting, if not challenging and disruptive, future. The funny thing about complex systems is that they are unpredictable, and therefore preparing for what may come is a non-trivial (yet absolutely essential) task.

    Is Gold In A Bull Market?

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link ~ Is Gold In A Bull Market?

    Executive Summary

    • Asking whether gold is in a bubble or a bull/bear market misses the point.
    • Better questions to ask involve fiat money management, government responses, and financial market risk.
    • Gold is not in a bull market; rather, faith in our decision-makers is in a bear market.
    • Trust is hard to come by these days. 
    • As for whether or not to buy gold, there are a number of factors to consider.

    I’d like to clarify my views on gold, because I approach this topic from a unique perspective that I think has value.

    For most, the idea of investing, or even speculating, is a matter of placing one’s money somewhere with the anticipation of getting more money back out at a later date.  Naturally, the footnote to this expectation reads, “…assuming money is worth the same.”  In this idea of investing, ‘more money’ is assumed to be synonymous with ‘greater purchasing power,’ because devalued money may represent a significant loss.  The shifting target in this story since 1971 has been the untethered value of the currency itself.

    It’s Simple: Trust Yourself

    Note: The following is a Martenson Report from January that I am now making freely available. For full access to all Martenson Reports, become an enrolled member.

    I was recently asked how it was that I knew to sell my house prior to the bursting of the housing bubble, why I sold out all my stock holdings in favor of gold and silver long before that was an obviously sensible move, and why I am convinced now that the recent actions by the Fed and the Treasury Department are likely to fail.
