After careful study, I've come to the conclusion that nobody knows anything, or at least, nobody talking about anything knows anything - it is either that or people like to drop LSD and play with their Magic 8-Ball and broadcast their interpretations as stock market wisdom, oblivious, or uncaring, about appearing foolish.
I predict that in 2020 the market will go up, and down, and end somewhere random on a multi-decade steady climb. I also predict that the greed/fear index will go up and down and end up somewhere between 0 and 100 on 12/31/2020. You're welcome.
I also predict that a bunch of losers who can't hold down a real job will pontificate on TV about their stock market insights loudly and with great confidence, and that the desperation for certainty in an uncertain World will net them a lot of money for doing so from people who should really know better than to listen to them, but are so deeply scared their emotions overcome their common sense.
I anticipate that one flavor of this behavior will involve gold and there will be a lot of anticipation and excitement about the price of gold, the calamities that face us that only gold will be able to protect our nest eggs from, and that the loudest proponents of this flavor of fortune telling will display disdain on the naivety of everybody who isn't as smart and cynical as they are about the current state of the markets, the key players, especially the Fed, and, of course, the need to buy gold, and yet more gold.
Note: This is not time dated - it does not only apply to 12/29/19, you can use these predictions any day of any year into the foreseeable future.
