Every production phase or civilization or other human invention goes through a so called transformation process. Transitions are social transformation processes that cover at least one generation. In this article I will use one such transition to demonstrate the position of our present civilization and its possible effect on stock exchange rates.

"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me". It is remarkable how much insight that one simple phrase can provide for the stock market.
Nobody likes to play the fool, especially the financial fool. Unfortunately just about everyone will be a financial fool at some point; it's nearly unavoidable, no matter how much effort is exerted. But the motivation to avoid making the same mistake twice is one of the strongest motivators of human behavior.

In last week's newsletter, I wrote that the markets had issued a "confirmed sell" signal. Not surprisingly, such a statement sparked more than just a few emails given the fact I DID NOT change the portfolio allocation model. In this week's missive, I want to review what I wrote in the previous analysis and clarify what you should be doing with your portfolios now.

The summer of 2007 was a great moment. We were enjoying one of the strongest booms in both the debt and equity markets that any of us had experienced in our lifetimes. Just the sort of markets we've been enjoying for the past year or so. The leveraged lending markets have fully recovered from their low point following the market crash of 2008 and 2009 and volume reached a new high in 2013. While market activity declined slightly in the first half of 2014 from the prior year, current activity levels remain very high.
