  • Should Retirees Worry About Bear Markets?

    Authored by Lance Roberts via, Mark Hulbert recently wrote a piece suggesting “Retirees Should Not Fear A Bear Market.” To Wit: “Don’t give up hope. I’m referring to what many retirees are most afraid of: Running out of money before they die.

  • Bear Markets & Fed Mistakes

    Authored by John Mauldin via, Powell Was Right but the Fed Is Wrong Last week. I argued Jerome Powell did the right thing by raising rates a mere 25 basis points. He forcefully declared the Fed’s independence from the market and politicians for the first time since Volcker. Greenspan, Bernanke, and, in particular, Yellen all gave the markets a “put” option—basically a third unofficial mandate to make sure that asset prices keep rising. Now, of course, that’s not the way...

  • Bear Market Bounce Or Beginning Abother Bull?

    Authored by Lance Roberts via, Bull Rallies & Market Tops Last week, we discussed the fulfillment of our expectations for a bull rally. While the rally was attributed to the rather “dovish” stance taken by Jerome Powell and commentary from the White House on potential progress on resolving the “trade war” with China.
