The One Big Thing

Back on October 2nd I suggested to clients markets would run up into Oct. 31 – and target SPX $3060 and NYSE $13,333 – with lower prices starting in mid-November through the end of the year. I consider current price action around this level to be ‘cruising altitude’ before it gets a little bumpy again.

In my article for MarketWatch, I predicted higher yields: Despite the Fed’s support, this stock market is headed lower

Then, just last week we had a historic move lower in bonds for which I was positioned for clients (short bonds and gold, long value and commodities).
