Where I was right, and where I was wrong in 2015

Anyone who trades, invests and/or writes about the markets is only as good as their last call - or so they say. That's one way to look at it but seriously, when one reads material from others, there are factors other than their last call that are important. In particular the interest is in the frequency that they write/make calls (do they forced themselves to write for personal or editorial reasons or do they write something when there is something worth writing about?) and to the cumulative accuracy of their writings both in direction; the identification of the target audience; whether there is a call to action, and, if so, whether timing if provided and proves reasonably accurate. These are good measures to critically evaluate what is written and read.

Are you ready for a 20%-50% decline?

One of the repeating themes of neoclassical technical analysis is that there really is a structure to the market. It was almost two years ago when I underscored that fact with an article titled "Quit worrying about a 1987-style crash." That article was written in response to a fellow contributor's musing which was calling for a market crash (and still is). As I said back then, when prices were some 20% lower than they are now, you shouldn't worry about a crash until it's time.

US Markets no longer masters of their own destiny

For oh so long, US markets were masters of the universe. They went where they wanted to go independent of all other markets. That's been true for decades now. Other than occasional blip here or there where some world event would upset that relationship for a short period of time, the U.S. was king of the hill. That equation is changing though.
