RE: Down goes the Dow
Ghost, I appreciate your sometimes contrarian views, but why are you so in love with Hussman? It's as if you think he's a financial god or something. He's just one guy, and no single guy has it all figured out. It's way more complex than that. I'm not saying you shouldn't consider what he says, but it would probably be worthwhile to follow some other people too and consider what they're saying.
I've been holding off further investing for a couple months now... I figure trade talks will continue to be unproductive through Trump's 1st (and hopefully only) term, and higher tariffs will go through in October, which will cause the market to dip a little. I might start passive investing again around then... Overall, regardless of economic data, growth, yield curves, etc, I think the market is harder to predict now than most other times because Trump is such a wild card. Recent studies have shown his tweets significantly impact the market, and I expect it to only get worse over the next year as we approach election day. His behavior and tweets are likely to get more and more erratic.
Gold and silver have both been going up substantially this year suggesting many are preparing for a downturn or at least hedging their bets against uncertainty in the market...
