Bearish … rating of 2 (0 - 4 is bearish, 5 is neutral, 6 - 10 is bullish).
I am more bearish because I believe this downtrend may last a while longer. Today begins the third week since HWM began reducing portfolio risk, first about 40% out, then 100% out. This is one way our strategies protect your principal and allow for profitable growth when the selloff concludes.
If we buy stocks as the downtrend ends, we will have a chance to make real profits as the market and economy recovers. Compare this with other strategies that hold onto stocks as they go down, and as they go back up, with no real profits during the swings.
