I am often asked how I was able to predict the first market drop that started at the beginning of the year 2000 a year in advance, and the second drop in 2007. There are a couple of different answers here. In my educational video series, I recently covered this very topic. By using my extensive studies of stock market history, and of these predictable and repeatable secular market cycles I was able to predict market downturns.
Now, how long, if you remember from our last video, does it take for the markets to go full cycle? In other words, if you took an average 20-year bear market and combined it with an adjacent, slightly shorter bull market, how many years is that?
