Monday’s Factors and Events

The reality of these two patterns setting up in the yield curve charts suggests that the U.S. and global markets are going to experience a surge in volatility and a very real potential that the U.S. and global markets will contract over the next 6 to 24 months. Within about 3 to 6+ months of these patterns setting up, one of two separate outcomes typically takes place.

A. A continued U.S. stock market price advance takes place pushing the yield curves lower and ultimately setting up a massive stock market top formation.

B. A moderate price peak sets up where the yield curve levels begin to rise from these current levels while the U.S. and global stock markets begin a moderate correction phase – eventually leading into the possibility of a massive price collapse.
