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?
