Is a New Long Term Bull Market in Stocks Already in Progress?

As regular subscribers to the BullBearMarket Report know, I have been tracking the onset of a long term Secular Systemic Shift since the last bull market began in 2011.  In 2018 I began pointing towards 2020 as the year that "Shift happens".  I think it's hard to dispute that, indeed, 2020 has proven to be a watershed year. 

At this time we are less than a month away from the November 3 U.S. election and there is little doubt that the results will largely determine a tectonic shift in one direction or another.  In fact, shifts of a secular and systemic nature are always marked by major political and geopolitical upheaval, revolution and war.  The presence of such upheaval in the political and social superstructure is confirmation that a process of fundamental change is in progress in the economic foundation.

History never repeats but it often rhymes.  Each secular systemic shift has its own characteristics.  Since the last shift, which took place between 1929-1949, had the characteristics of the Great Depression, Fascism, Holocaust, World War and the Atomic Bomb, there is probably a bias towards expecting a similar outcome in the current historical time frame.  And it's certainly not impossible that we may be faced with transiting a similar epoch now.  But it's important to remain open-minded towards the possible outcomes.

In the context of Financial System analysis there has been a strong current which is philosophically married to expectations for an eventually disastrous outcome.  In 2012, at the start of the last bull market, I identified this trend as "Disasterism", of which there are two main varieties, Inflationism and Deflationism.  Both emerged from anti-Keynesian monetarist intellectual circles that placed the Federal Reserve, central banking and monetary policy at the center of a theory that, one way or another, had to inevitably result in a deep, dark disaster.  I think that we have seen periodic crises that have of course been linked significantly to money supply and monetary policy.  And while the 2007-2008 and 2020 period have certainly been ugly and scary, I don't think we can really say that they rise to the level of the historical events of 1929-1949.  And again, I'm not saying that our current circumstance won't devolve to a comparable level.  As I have said before, we are in a state of defacto war with China and a defacto Civil War in the U.S.  There is little doubt that epic sociological and economic changes are in progress.  But I do think it's important to realize that the dislocation and pain associated with the current process of transformation may end up being brief and less impactful than might otherwise be expected.

In the last report I touched on "Peak Financialism" and the rise of the Financialist economy as a necessary and inevitable stage of late Capitalism.  Financialism became necessary as the capacity of economic value generation via the productive processes of Industrial Capitalism began to fall off sharply.  The Financialist epoch can be logged as beginning with Nixon's termination of the US Dollar gold standard in 1972 and reaching its peak with the Coronacrisis Bailout of 2020. In many ways, that period was simultaneously the peak of Capitalism as well as the transition to the next epoch.  And the next epoch is marked by the economic and societal characteristics of Information.

The period we are now involved in is not a period of transition from one kind of Capitalism to another, but rather from Capitalism to an Information-theoretic paradigm.  The contending parties are largely unaware of the underlying forces that are describing the terrain of battle.  "Conservatives" think they are fighting for a return to past glorious conditions and principles.  "Liberals" (in many cases, really Marxists) think they are fighting for progress towards a utopian future that they can mold to their ideals.  Neither side really has a grounded idea about the fundamental technological economic reality that is emerging around them.  Nonetheless, aware or not, the pieces on the board have to make their moves and the drama has to be played out.  Historical forces will have their way.  It is the details of the outcome that are in doubt...

Contrary indicator

Posted by John on January 21, 2021 at 7:03am 1 Comment

Is it a concern when a long term super bear all of a sudden begins calling for new highs?  Even when those new highs are part of coming ‘Armageddon’?  Because EWT is now calling for that!

Hochberg is now calling for new highs (of course, the odds favor that outcome.  The market is in an historic bull advance).  

But for about 10 months straight, in the face…

Elliott Wave International: Short and simple

I am not sure they fully understand that for most people, the purpose of the markets is, quite simply, to make money. An indication they might not share your goal (or any trader/investor’s goal) is they never provide practical guidance for trades.

For them, it seems that the more arcane the analysis the better. That seems their purpose. Not making money.  In fact, they apparently are so disinterested in making money,…


Eleven hours

Robert Prechter/Steven Hochberg write a market update Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

The US stock market is open 6.5 hours per day, so they ‘update’ three times in a 33 stock market hours week, every week.  Or approximately every 11 hours.

From March 2020 to November 2020 occurred one of the strongest bull market advances in the US stock market in decades.  It was a highly persistent,…


GURU of the decade

Posted by John on November 11, 2020 at 6:51am 0 Comments

Robert Prechter was named guru of the decade by FNN (the CNBC forerunner) in about 1989.  Prechter made excellent market calls from the late 1970’s through 1987.  

Since then, he has been consistently wrong. Wrong for over 30 years (3 decades!).  Not just wrong on the stock market, passionately wrong.  Now, there have been 4 very significant bear markets from 1988 onward, and because Prechter = bearish, he was bearish in front of them.  But he has been bearish for over 30…
