What Will the Stock Market Look Like Without Bernake? Oh No!!

Is Ben Bernanke responsible for record market levels? Forbes magazine says “YES”! Well, at the very least yes for any gains since 2009.

Surprisingly, research says that 100% of the market’s gains since 2009 have come when the Fed has decided to buy bonds (also known as quantitative easing). And evidently in the few periods where they were not printing money, the markets went down.

Basically what is happening is the economy is unable to support market prices. The only thing that can is continually printing money and flooding the economy with cash. As soon as the Government stops doing that, the markets will drop to a value that is more reasonable according to what the economy is doing.

What does this suggest for you? This would mean you ought to pay very close attention to what the Fed is doing and when they plan on “tapering” off their easing. As soon as the tapering begins, you need to look out for a fast falling market.

Of course, the market may decide that it will not wait for the Fed to taper. It may decide to nose dive anyway.

This brings up the same question I ask you continuously. Are you wishing for the best, but planning for the worst? Or, like most individuals, are you hoping for the best, and preparing for the ideal?

Now is a great time to review your planning to make sure that you don’t get caught without warning when the markets take a dive. Why not call our office to get a 2nd opinion? It’s free, and it may turn out to be really worth your time. 916-509-7227 (Pacific time)
