Before we get to the main article we would like to present you with a small video and a brief excerpt of an article that we think makes for a compelling read:
The masses do not believe this market can trend higher; sentiment is decidedly negative and has been confirmed time and time again. The majority of the players are not bullish, and no bull market has ever ended on a note of anxiety. Moreover, our proprietary “anxiety index” also reveals that the crowd is in the circle of the fear zone and has not moved into the calm zone once in the past six months.
The masses (and this includes the so-called experts) believe the stock market will not rise because the (real) economic outlook is far from positive but that is precisely why it will rise. The Fed and the corporate world will do whatever it takes to maintain the illusion that all is well. That includes creating and throwing as much money into the markets as is necessary to propel them higher; they are even willing to sacrifice and an untold number of the masses to maintain this illusion.
