After a good run in late October, the last day of October AND now the first day of November, the stock market is off to a thud. What’s happening?
There is a significant difference between the stock market action in late July – early August and now. The drop in August was enough to break support lines. But at the present time, we are operating in a positive trend… a big difference. While the market carries a long-term negative (bearish) outlook, there will be times where the short and intermediate term is positive.

For example, in 2008, we had similar long term bearish market tones, but yet we had a sustained three month rally starting in late spring that made (guys like me) scratch our heads. I would also add the following:
Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels.
All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions, or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for an investor’s portfolio.
