We Go Both Ways
Art Cashin is what’s known as an old hand. He’s experienced the entire second half of the 20th century, having lived and invested through inflation, deflation, booms, busts, frauds, embezzlements, lies, broken promises, unbalanced budgets and a dozen presidents. But we repeat ourselves.
And with 3/5ths of a trillion dollars under management, Cashin (what a great name) is worth paying attention to. Here’s what he says about the current stock market cycle.
“Art Cashin… Director of Floor Operations for UBS, which has $612 billion under management… said… In the stock market, traders think of something called the 17.6 year cycle… a ‘fat’ cycle, where you can pick almost any stock you want and it will go up… The other one [is the sideways cycle] in which the markets go up and down, but don’t make any real progress… An example of that is the period from 1966 to 1982, where you started at about 800 on the Dow, and ended at about 800 on the Dow, having gone to 1,000 several times, having gone to 500 several times… the current 17.6 year cycle says we’ve got, probably, another 6 years to go… We started this cycle in February of 2000… for these people to get back on their feet, we may not be looking at months, we may well be looking at years…”
Precisely. And here is the problem. Investors only participate in half of all stock market cycles: the up half.
Think of the AC current in your home. It alternates, right? Thomas Edison tried foisting direct current on the public and Tesla’s AC won out because it was superior by generating electricity in both directions.
Investors who trade stocks in both directions can make a fortune during sideways market cycles. Investors who only trade up are, like, so AC.
Plus, they may have to wait 17.6 years since 2000 for things to go higher, which would be… doing a little quick math here… sometime in 2017. Which means the next 5 years could produce bupkus.
Here at Prism Solutions we trade currencies like an AC generator. Our software is poised to dart in either direction to catch the natural, up and down price movements of the currencies. Which is one reason why we can not only generate so much profit but do so regularly, like sticking a lamp cord into a wall outlet. Turn the switch and the light comes on.
