Well, that first of the new year burst of bullish enthusiasm didn’t last long. Except in bitcoin and ethereum. That’s the problem for being so bullish in January/February. There are 10-11 more months to go. Like football or basketball games, they are never won in the first quarter (just ask the Philadelphia Eagles). Oh well.
Things are beginning to crumble. Morgan Stanley announced this morning that they feel stocks could decline 25% in the next few months (guess they have been reading recent Taylor Market reports). Real estate (housing) sales are beginning to plunge, inflation didn’t go “poof” away and the realization that the Fed means business is sinking in. Recession? Yes! Bleak? Yes, for equities. But, I have been warning of this for “quite some time.”
The bright spot is in the bitcoin/ethereum corner. With deficits sure to climb as a recession unfolds, the dollar becomes even more “worthless.” Around the globe there are riots in Lebanon and Nigeria as their currencies collapse. China and Russia are working on a way to replace the dollar. Hello BITCOIN. Even the SEC won’t crush it.
So what to do, what to do? I mean, if the financial markets experience a “trap door” plunge of 25%+ in the next few months, you need a plan. First, out of equities. Second, reduce any gold holdings you may have. Third, get some Bitcoin. That’s it. Simple.
BITCOIN & ETH. That was the bottom at $16K-$17K for BITCOIN and $1,200 for ETH. If (when) markets collapse, BTC may back off to $20K or so. I don’t expect it, but would not be surprised. ETH $1,450-$1,500, too. The new bull move has begun, but be patient.
GOLD. Dead money. If it makes you feel good to hold it……then hold it. If the Fed keeps up the inflation fight and interest rates continue to rise, GOLD could easily see $1,700-$1,725.
S&P 500. Down…..and quickly. Sticking to my 3,250 target. It’s a bear market. An ugly bear market.
THE NEXT STAGE OF THE BEAR MARKET IS BEGINNING.
HAS WORLD WAR III BEGUN? YES. END OF STORY.
