The Other 80%: Why No One Cares About The Stock Market
6 months ago by SA Editor's Picks

The evident disconnect between consumers and the market is obvious. There are people who are obsessing over cannabis and crypto, looking for a get-rich-quick technique, and forgetting to pay attention to the fundamentals of investing. And then there are the people who can’t afford to think about the stock market, and are working 3 jobs to make ends meet. Why on earth would they associate with anything that 1) takes their money and 2) reminds them of the Great Financial Crisis?

6 months ago by Fallible @ Fallible YouTube Channel

This video is the beginning of our China series where we’ll explain what’s going on in China and why it doesn’t look good for Chinese stocks like JD.com & Alibaba. On November 18, 1956, during a reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow. Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev declared to his audience of Western diplomats that “We [the Soviet Union] will bury you.” This was not a military threat but rather an economic boast. And it was a remark taken very seriously by the West.The Soviet economy delivered exceptionally high growth rates in the decades following WWII, far outpacing developed Western nations.

The Soviet Union was hailed as an “economic miracle” and many became convinced that the Soviet’s Command and Control economy was far superior to the West’s capitalist system… and that it was only a matter of time before the Soviets became the largest economic power in the world.

There are lots of indicators out there, but one metric stands head and shoulders above the rest. No, it is not a head-and-shoulders pattern. There are hundreds, if not zillions, of ways to measure the trend and identify trend reversals. Over the years, I have found trend reversals to be more the exception rather than the norm. Trends show a tendency to persist and this means we are better off...
