The term he uses to describe the industry's mindset is Bullshift - a cheeky portmanteau that combines the unbridled optimism of bullishness with the industry's unwavering ability to shift attention toward good news - no matter what the circumstances tell us.

Among other topics, the session will discuss the nature and sustainability of economic recovery and identify winners and losers.

What does a new constitution mean for Chile and social turmoil mean for Colombia? Would they succeed in stopping the spread of the Venezuelan disease of consistently doing more wrongs to correct prior wrongs? Is there an escape for Brazil? What would these mean for their economic growths and the safety of supplies of commodities? And should one, in the future, trust commodity supply chains in the US or China's areas of influence? How would this change the perception about other commodity supplier nations?

Investing is a game of risk control. 44-year market veteran and crash expert, Michael Markowski, shows you everything about secular markets, why the timing is right for secular bear to begin, and the defensive strategies that can be deployed to grow a portfolio during a secular bear. To quote Mr. Markowski, "The Dow Jones Industrials composite has experienced an even number of secular bull (8) and bear (8) markets, each having minimum durations of eight years since 1802. Due to Dow's current secular bull having a duration of 12 years, the index is ripe and ready to enter its ninth secular bear which could result in a minimum decline of 45% by 2030."
Year-to-date, through April 30, 2021, the S&P Equal Weight 500 jumped 16.2%, recording the third-strongest four-month start to any year since 1990 (when the index was first introduced).

History says (but does not guarantee), that such early strength is typically followed by a volatile performance through September, before resuming its above-average advance during the remaining three months of the year. Will the same hold true for 2021? Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA, will discuss this and other favorable indicators and share his market and sector outlooks the rest of this year.
