Window Dressing for the First Half of 2019

Now that we’ve completed six months into 2019, The Political Year from Hell, certain things should be obvious to you.

  • The circus clowns are coming out of the woodwork (as evidenced by the recent Democrat debates).
  • Morality is plumbing lower depths (as evidenced by the mind-boggling acceptance and disgusting promotion of pedophilia/child drag queen kids).
  • It’s now legal to kill new-born babies.
  • The markets just keep on rollin’.


For now, let’s focus on point #4.

Most of Wall Street’s high-rollers finished the first half of 2019 with high-fives and pats on the back.

Afterall, indexes chalking up double digit returns in a 12-month period is worthy of bragging rights, let alone doing it in six months.

But did we just witness, what Wall Street calls, Window Dressing?

No doubt we had some bumps in the road in the first half of 2019, but closing near all time highs can be deceiving.

Let me explain.

Window dressing refers to how retailers use visual displays (mannequins, clothes, props, etc. in their windows) to draw you in to their store.

Wall Street is no different.

In fact, they’re masters when it comes to window dressing.

It’s also similar to when you dine at a fancy expensive restaurant and the chef personally visits your table giving you an over-the-top description of his daily specials.

Translation: The shelf-life of his “Specials” has ended and he needs to get rid of them.  And he jacks the price up to convince you how “Special” they are.

Don’t get me wrong.

We’re still in The Most Hated Bull Market in History and you shouldn’t fall for the traps set by the boyz in the “Club.”

They have no morals (like points 1, 2, and 3 above).

When you learn how to beat the “gurus” at their own game, (HERE) you won’t be a victim of window dressing tactics.

Share this with a friend…they’ll thank YOU later.
