With the Fed recently re-affirming its commitment to cutting rates to keep the expansion going ‘for as long as possible’, stocks have continued rising to all-time highs. Despite these record prices, though, the low-volume tepid action we’re seeing suggests the vigor underlying today’s financial markets is waning.
Why? Because there’s nothing left to boost asset prices higher from here except *maybe* a trade deal with China. Beyond that, all the other macro drivers out there are pointed to the downside.
But the Trump administration keeps promising “we’re almost there!” nearly every day. So much of the benefit of any trade deal is already priced into today’s markets. And the reality of a deal could easily underwhelm vs expectations.
So, there’s little left to prop up stocks, bonds and real estate prices. But there’s a mounting Rogue’s Gallery of risks threatening to drop them lower. A lot lower.
Given the vast and fast multiplying signs of the unfolding global recession, the huge disconnect between asset prices and underlying fundamentals, the swelling population who’s priced out of stocks/housing/life above the poverty level, the retirement crisis, rising oil prices, the rejection of globalism in favor of nationalism breaking out in many countries, growing political and social/generational animosity — our entire system is about to hit the brick wall of “Reality” at full speed. And have you noticed we haven’t even mentioned the brewing debt crisis yet?
Which fallout implications we should we most likely expect from here? And what prudent steps should you consider taking now, to prepare before crisis arrives?
