Nothing Goes Up Forever

With equities not just reaching but far exceeding stratospheric levels the question of how much longer this can be sustained obviously comes to mind. In fact it’s the prevailing sentiment in light of a face ripping rally that is unparalleled in financial history. I have repeatedly pointed out the obvious disconnect between the stock market and what has transpired across Main Street. Not just all over the United States but also in the rest of the Western hemisphere, which continues to be on the receiving end of various well intended policy decisions.

The Prospect Of Green Shoots

It’s been almost 30 years since I’ve lived in Northern Europe and among several personal reasons a major incentive to leave for warmer climates was that I don’t care much for six months of non-stop crappy weather.

Look Behind The Curtain

Given all the political drama drowning out any common sense at the current time I wouldn’t blame you for having missed the news. Turns out 140,000 jobs were lost in December alone and I fear things may only get worse from here. Unfortunately if 2020 reconfirmed anything then would be to never underestimate the market’s ability to fade structural economic problems of tectonic proportions. However as the old saying goes: you can run but you can’t hide (forever) as we are now starting to see the first emerging cracks.
