The Beginning is Near!
When water turns to ice, or vapor turns to water, we have what is referred to as a Phase Equilibria change. It can be slow or it can be instantaneous. Whichever occurs, a new and completely different state of reality then exists.
The markets are about to transition through such a Phase Equilibria. We have reached the End of the Beginning and a New Beginning is Near! Unfortunately the new beginning is the Beginning of the End of the Secular Bear Market Counter Rally. It isn’t imminent, but it is near!
Once complete, the Bear Market that started in 2000 in real terms, will resume even in nominal terms. The End of the Beginning of the Secular Bear Market has arrived and now the truly ugly part of the bear market emerges.
OLD PHASE: Recovery & Hope
Since the financial crisis of 2008 the US and world have been in the “Recovery and Hope” phase. This phase normally starts with Triage to “stop the bleeding”, then moves to Operations “to fix the problem”, then finally to the Recovery or ” convalescence ” stage. All perfectly normal, if the diagnosis of the problem was correct, the operation successful and there are no complications during the recovery.
Unfortunately, through monetary malpractice the doctors screwed things up!!
