Covid is fading away. The economy is improving. Thus, the only story worthy of debate is inflation. So let that be our focus today, says Steve Reitmeister, editor of Reitmeister Total Return.

In this talk, Harry Dent shows how the massive Baby Boom spending trends peaked in late 2007 and we have been in a naturally slowing economic environment ever since with unprecedented debt levels weighing. Hence, central banks decided to just print money nonstop to counter this trend. The problem is we now have a global financial asset bubble at $525 trillion that is near twice the debt bubble it was designed to cure. Mr. Dent forecasts this bubble will burst this year and shows that history says the first crash alone will be around 50% in 2-3 months, as occurred in 1929. That first crash could start as soon as early June. The good news is that a crash into 2022/23 will clear the economy of these financial asset bubbles, including real estate, and shed a lot of debt and zombie companies that we should have back in 2008-09. Then the Millennial generation will drive the next long-term boom from 2024 into 2036/37. Strategy: Get out of risk assets now, into long term Treasuries, not gold-and back into stocks and risk assets between late 2022 and late 2023.

The markets have had an incredible run in the past year, but things are changing. The S&P 500 and DJIA were just recently at new highs, but the market has begun selling off. Inflation is in the headlines and the professional investment community is showing signs of worry. Even the easy money in Bitcoin has dried up with the huge selloffs in the cryptocurrencies.

We all know this bull market cannot continue indefinitely and a small correction can turn into a bear market at any time.

There are no sure-shot techniques for market forecasting and analysis. If one were developed, it wouldn’t work for long, since as everyone applied it, its foundation would change significantly. There’s an excess of data in the world today, so the trick is to spot the one or two key variables in a specific time. They could be Fed policy, consumer behavior, foreign trade wars, etc. Any these factors could change, sometimes several times, throughout the year. That’s why it’s important to keep up with market news and the ever-changing conditions. For a framework to add value, it must entail market-moving events that have a good chance of occurring, but are not yet within the consensus.
