The Three Forces That Could (and Probably Will) Kill Stocks

There’s no question the bulls have the upper hand in this market. Granted, since the February 2018 “warning shot” and the volatility that’s come after, we’re not seeing the same kind of wild abandon that drove the Dow 25% higher in 2017. Until then, it made good sense to be long and buy into the dips.

That’s not the case anymore. And in fact, if you’ve adhered to my recommendations, you’re sitting on a nice, safe, headache-free 60% or 70% cash position by now.

Liquidity moves markets!

Follow the money. Find the profits! 

Largely, we’ve been in “meat grinder” mode. The markets get locked into a trading range, chopping and churning… and “chewing” traders up.

Still, there is a maddeningly (for me) persistent bid under stocks that defies gravity and reality.

There’s no way the Fed could come to the rescue this time, either.

Lee Adler

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
