Ted Bauman has recently posted his views about some potential challenges that could face the American economic system in the near future. He has not given his personal belief of whether or not the stock market will go up or down and has stated that he is divided on his. This would make Ted Bauman one of the many individuals who are uncertain of the future performance of the American stock market.
Ted Bauman has stated however that there are a few trends that you can typically see in the performance of stock markets. He believes that selling stocks based off of stock selling strategies can potentially lead to an unexpected crash in the stock market. Similar to the one that occurred in 1987 on Black Monday. In October 1987 the American stock market experienced a huge drop that was directly the result of rules-based selling strategies. Later that same year investors who were able to hold onto their stocks instead of selling saw an overall increase in their value of stocks by 10%.
Ted Bauman also believes that it is important for individuals to keep a balanced view on the performance of the American stock market. As of right now, he believes that looking at the earnings reports of the various companies seem to indicate that a large number of stocks are overvalued currently. He has also said that it is a strong possibility that the federal reserve bank will increase the interest rates from the U.S. Treasury several times over the next few sessions of Congress. This could lead to a trigger in the American economy which could potentially indicate a new recession.
