Came across a great post today which I thought I'd share as it helps to explain why we are seeing such a sluggish recovery. It also touches on momentum and trend following strategies which is also relevant given what the timing indicators and the US recession indicator have been doing. The image (click to enlarge) below comes from the post as does
the one below. If you want to read Debt, here there and everywhere at Value Walk then click here. It also touches on the outlook for returns in the medium to long term - 5 to 10 years - given where valuations are, but acknowledges that these may not be good predictors of returns in the short term. You can also read the authors thoughts on this here.
Any way enjoy - if that's the right word, don't get carried away out there while the trend is your friend for now & keep your tin hat close to hand as I think you might need it soon.
