Wrong For All The Right Reasons (by Mark St.Cyr)

By -

One can’t help but look at the financial markets close as of Friday
and not shake their head in bewilderment. For anyone (including myself)
that has expressed caution since the beginning of this historic rise we
are left scratching our heads. The mantra of “Don’t fight the Fed” has
just been spot on. However, that saying was used far before, and for
other reasons than to explain what we are currently witnessing today.

Some only read the headlines trying to extrapolate any discernible
information for what we see taking place. Others just use a “going with
the flow” type strategy because they don’t know what else to do. It can
work for a time however, it can set oneself up to do exactly the wrong
things at the wrong times.
