The Fed has to taper some time in the near future, meaning they have to gradually reduce their bond buying to zero. QE has to be completely cut to zero before they can raise rates.

Market went into a tailspin in the 2013 “Taper Tantrum” when Bernanke started tapping the brakes on bond buying. Same thing can happen when Powell starts tapering. That’s a risk maybe in September or October? Next year is midterms so timing maybe too sensitive.

For buy n hold (and never sell), I do personnel analysis :wink: because


For trading, obviously don’t trade screwed up companies, is so obvious that talking about fundamental analysis is a big f… no time for detailed analysis… by the time, you finished analyzing, time for actions is over. A cursory look at a few metrics will do… if you want to refer those as financial analysis, then ok I use financial analysis :wink:

Of course, whatever you do…


So don’t spend too much time on analysis.


So… all your analysis, education, and whatever really don’t mean much.

Good question: What if 2020 was 1987?
