The positive “bull” market moved into never before seen territory in the third quarter, reaching its longest duration and one of its strongest up-cycle performances on record. Investors continue to believe this is good news. The U.S. economy is booming and Wall Street is reporting increased earnings and rising stock prices. While completely ignoring danger signs such as high stock prices, rising interest rates, inflation, crazy amounts of debt and trade wars. Right now, there appears to be little regard for safety and downside protection.
