The Bull vs. Bear Battle in 2019

By Rich Weiss - February 28, 2019

Let me make one thing clear: I’m not predicting a recession this year. But I am taking note of some signals I see in the market, and in the broader economy.

The brightest flashing red light I see is slowing economic growth. Experts are tempering their expectations for the U.S. economy for 2019, and also 2020. This makes me wonder where—and, in the short-term, if—the equity markets will find an updraft to lift stocks. 

But none of this has me in panic mode. In fact, I see some evidence that we could be in for a “soft landing” as opposed to a major market correction. Check out my latest video to find out why I think so, and what that means for investors.
