This past weekend, I went over the most indicative recession macroeconomic signals. I wanted to get the pulse on how professionals are positioning right now.
I’ve shown you many times that while the Federal Reserve is the leader of the global Quantitative Tightening cycle, in 2019, both Europe and Japan will, most likely, will join the U.S. central bank in this endeavor.
Following October’s volatile month in the stock market, cryptocurrencies have proved themselves to not only be stable, but relatively immune to major stock market declines. And compared to the U.S. dollar, which has consistently lost value over time, multi-year crypto ownership has been highly successful. But given its brief history, can we really say that crypto is better money?
To the surprise of many, the U.S. dollar has been the best-performing asset of 2018 – something that hasn’t happened in many years. It’s a remarkable and unexpected phenomenon… or at least, it was unexpected to investors who took the wrong side of the trade. But how can we explain the dollar’s strength, and why is it happening now? And, should you be moving all into cash now?
History is clear on this. We’re entering the best, 9-month period for the stock market.
