    Brexit and the Long Way Down For Markets

    in Finance

    From The Desk of David Gurwitz
    For new clients, we mentioned on CNBC in late 2014 that we would not see more than 5% upside in Equities until the big crash starting in 2017
    At the time, the S&P Futures was trading around 2120 
    Although it reached that level a few times afterwards, we felt being long stocks was risky, and many stocks lost a big portion of their market capitalization
     We sent the study below as #2016 - 013 Charles Nenner Research Center - Summary of 5 Economic Indicator Forecasts and Some Thoughts on "Fundamentals" - Jan 24, 2016 Sunday
    It explains how cycles work
    We quote in part from that study:
     Late in 2014, based on our cycle work, we noticed instability in the markets 
    For our new subscribers, we review our philosophy: 
    Cycles predict the ways investors will react to the news and events - based on rigorous analysis and calculations of past patterns. We do not know these events, but they do not have to happen for the effect to occur - at cycle tops or bottoms
    For example, if the Fed only thinks about raising rates, it already has an effect At cycle tops, the media will bring up every negative detail they can come up with. At cycle bottoms, the opposite is true  - the media will bring up every positive detail they can come up with. When President Reagan began serving in 1981, it seemed that he could do no wrong - and longer term equity market cycles were up from that point,. Therefore, we consider these cyclical and target patterns to be more fundamental than so-called "fundamentals"., The problem arises when long term investors decide - based on cycles - to leave the markets and short term investors take over

    Challenge your Mortgage Servicer and Successors: Overcoming Legal Presumptions

    in Finance

    Tonight Neil Garfield and southern California attorney Charles Marshall will discuss the recent Massachussetts case US Bank v. Bolling.  For years legal presumptions attached to "facially valid" documents and the banks and servicers were able to argue through their sham surrogates ("successors") that any inquiry beyond the paper trail was irrelevant because the the issue had already been decided in the early motions of the case wherein those legal presumptions were used to sustain the implied perspective of the banks, servicers, and their surrogate successors. The tide has changed.
    Charles Marshall, Esq. attorney in Northern California joins us again as the featured attorney. Charles has been a long time supporter of the livinglies blog and has contributed to the analysis and strategies that are reported on the blog.
