Daily Market Briefing

Stocks Headed Lower

October 13, 2019: (1:00 am U.S. Eastern Time): Although U.S. stock prices, in general, rebounded sharply on Friday, October 11 in response to President Trump's claims that substantial progress was made over the past two days on creating fairer trade between the United States and China, our research indicates that stocks around the world will trend lower over the next few months. Therefore, we're advising persons who subscribe to our financial market research and advisory journals to continue to allocate a large portion of their financial market assets to ETFs structured to move in the opposite direction of certain stock market indices.
