The Best Kept Secret in the Financial World

The best kept secret in the investing world is that almost nothing turns out as expected. I would agree. However, with some good old-fashioned American common-sense, it’s not difficult to observe the stock market pattern to this point has been bubble, crash, bubble, crash, bubble, crash…One look at a stock market chart confirms this. We get a new high in the Dow, and then we get a new low in the next crash. That’s been the pattern.
