It's September, but it's not the calendar that's the concern!
Well, here we are...September...traditionally the worst month of the year. HOWEVER, the real concerns for investors should derive from the developments of the past few months, not the calendar. These developments are why we're looking for a correction of 10%-15% over the coming weeks and months. To read more about why we're so cautious right now, click here to subscribe to The Maley Report.
Will the Fed change expectations of future rate cuts this week?
Even though the trade war should be the main issue affecting markets going forward, "Fed speak" should have an important impact this week. Based on what I heard from the Fed in Jackson Hole, I believe that the Fed Funds Futures are not accurately depicting what the Fed is likely to do (or not do) over the coming months. If I'm correct on this, we should know this week...and it should be important for the markets either way.
