Stock markets have been back on the offensive in recent action, and could be poised for a fresh leg higher into new all-time high territory. With the S&P500 trading just shy of the 2400 level and the Nasdaq trading over 6100, you have to wonder just how high markets could get before the bottom falls out.
Trading has been slow and quiet, and volatility has remained very elusive. In fact, stock market volatility as measured by the CBOE’s VIX is currently at the lowest level in decades.
Apparently there is nothing to worry about in this crazy world and stocks may simply keep going up indefinitely. The level of investor complacency seems astonishing given the current geopolitical landscape, the many unknowns surrounding the Trump administration and numerous other factors.
Now-there is nothing to say that stocks cannot keep marching higher for some time to come while volatility continues to contract. That being said, however, you must also consider the possibility of a rapid and significant expansion in market volatility.
It would appear that most investors are currently choosing to turn a blind eye to the many potential pitfalls global markets could face in the coming months and years.
It is precisely then that astute investors may seek out ways to diversify risk, book some profits and get ahead of the curve.
Now is your chance…
Gold has been seeing some profit taking and selling pressure in recent weeks as the euphoria surrounding stocks continues. The yellow metal remains significantly higher from its post-Trump election victory lows, however. Any further dips towards the $1200 per ounce level could potentially represent a significant buying opportunity for the long-term investor. The question is: Will you take advantage of this buying opportunity or will you ignore the writing on the wall?
As the great Warren Buffet once said: “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” This powerful statement rings especially true today in our opinion. Now is a time to be fearful and a time to be greedy.
