HARD FACTS, HARD CHOICES ARE ALL PART OF A BEAR MARKET. LETS TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS WEEK. MARKETS GO DOWN, MARKETS GO UP, VOLATILITY IS HIGH (FEWER FOLKS IN THE MARKETS-LESS LIQUIDITY), BUT GENERALLY MOVE LOWER. BITCOIN IS LODGED AROUND $19,500, ETH STUCK JUST ABOVE $1,300, GOLD CONTINUES DOWN AND THE S&P 500 (EQUITIES) ARE IN A TRUE BEAR MARKET.
SO, HAVING BEEN THROUGH SEVERAL BEAR MARKETS INCLUDING ONE THAT LASTED YEARS (1970’S), LETS DISCUSS. AND IF YOU THINK THE MARKET WILL RESUME ITS CONSTANT UPWARD MOMENTUM………YOU ARE WRONG. GET USED TO THIS TYPE OF “NON-ACTION.” THE VERY WORST THING A BEAR MARKET DOES IS WEAR YOU DOWN. VOLUME DRYS UP, LACK OF INTEREST IN MARKETS BECOMES PREVALENT UNTIL YOU CAN’T TAKE ANY MORE. NOT MANY PEOPLE HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE. BUT, HERE YOU ARE.
THIS WILL BE WHAT STAGFLATION LOOKS LIKE, INFLATION STAYS HIGH. INTEREST RATES STAY HIGH. THE WEIGHT OF THOSE DEPRESS REAL ESTATE (HOMES), PRECIOUS METALS AND FINANCIAL RETURNS DWINDLE (OR DECLINE CONSISTENTLY). YOU DON’T FEEL WEALTHY, YOU DON’T SPEND MONEY. GET READY AND USED TO IT. FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.
NOW, I KNOW ITS GLOOMY BUT I HAVE ACTIVELY WARNED OF THIS (ok, I missed the crypto decline by just being in cash) FOR ALMOST A YEAR. CHECK OUT EVERY PAST TAYLOR REPORT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. AGAIN, I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS.
A BRIGHT SPOT? DIGITAL ASSETS. BITCOIN. THOSE WILL SHINE AND BE THE BRIGHT SPOT FOR INVESTING. THAT’S WHERE THE “HUGE” MONEY IS FLOWING.
