The other day I had an experience that reminded me of the expression “Perception is Reality.”
It happened as I entered a bank. I held the door open for an elderly gentleman (in his late 70s or 80s) who smiled at me and said, “Thank You, young man.”
I smiled back at him and said, “Who are you calling, young man?”
His response: “Compared to me, you’re a young man.”
This got me thinking: “He’s right…I don’t consider myself a young man but he sees me as one.”
That’s very similar to how most people see the market these days.
They SEE it as dangerous…and memories of the 2008 meltdown are still fresh in their minds.
It’s understandable when you consider how so many people were wiped out in 2008-2009.
However, their “perception” of danger has caused them to miss out on The Most Hated Bull Market in History. And this perception’s going to keep them thinking “…Ain’t no way I’m gonna go back in the market now.”
This fear/perception that freezes people in their tracks is manufactured exploited by the Wall Street “Club” members.
They use their bought-and-paid-for media miscreants to keep you in a “constant state of agitation” enabling them to pull off the greatest transfer of wealth in history.
Think I’m making this up?
Just look at the staggering increase of wealth among the elite 1% in the last few years and you’ll see how this is no laughing matter.
What’s ironic is how so many people idolize worship the uber-wealthy.
Their misguided “perception” of wealth (and how wealth is accumulated) is what keeps them from making money. And that’s not going to change unless they change how they think.
This is at the heart of what we deal with in our newsletter “…In Plain English.”
We emphasize Listening to the Markets instead of the pundits on TV.

You’ll thank us later.
