Is the stock market heading towards a downfall? In all the big 3 US Indices it seems that the peak happened a few months ago and now it's all coming down. The US is also faring better than the world too now, so the rest of the world may go to shit as well.
Is it worth putting into stocks right now or are we looking at a big crash?
If the rest of the world suffers, it could go either way. Investors might see it as a signal to get out while they still can (thus crashing the market), or they may see it as a sign that the US is their last "safe haven" (thus helping, or at least not hurting, the US stock market).
It's imperative that the Fed raises rates throughout this year in order to build up confidence in our economy. But even then, you can always count on people being skittish.
So here's my advice:
If at any point this year, the Fed raises rates IN SPITE OF poor employment data, go ahead and invest. The Fed doing that will be a sign that they are extremely serious about raising rates, improving faith in the US market, and buffering for a recession.
If the Fed doesn't raise rates or they only timidly raise rates when employment data is good (which is likely what they'll do), DO NOT buy.
No ya dunce.
Markets ALWAYS recover. Everything will fix itself soon.
Daily reminder that people shit their pants over a 1% drop and go crazy buying bunkers and stockpiling food. It's ridiculous.
SnP is going to test 1900 most likely
Crude is getting BTFO and US dollar will continue the strengthen along with Gold - the inverse relationship between USD and Gold is non-existent under these new market conditions.
to add to this, I wouldn't suggest buying stock thats connected to major indexes or ETFs. ETFs and major indexes could very well bring good companys down with them. So wait a few months before buying.
i wonder who is behind this post?
gold has never had inverse correlation to anything really, just some occasional random seasons. silver is actually much better than gold as it has some real value.
