Markets continue their march higher, week after week. June turned out to be another month with the market hitting all time highs. Nothing seems to worry the investors these days. Why would it, especially when you have the Fed chair saying that we will not see another financial crisis in our lifetime. No need to worry right? 😉 If there was any doubt of hubris in the market, this should be it, imo.
Outlook for July 2017
The summer months bring complacency, but I continue to stay wary of the overall broad market. With most broad returns coming from buybacks and supported by the big 5 tech companies, I dont see any confidence in putting money into stocks other than some small moves here and there to either swing trade or collect premiums via options. However, I also putting some of my funds at work in the index funds month after month, but as regular readers may have noticed, there are not too many Buys and Sells these days. Nothing really stands out as a great opportunity right now, so I also keep accumulating more cash in my brokerage accounts waiting for better opportunities.
