Get Ready for the Future - Exponential Machine Intelligence Mega-trend towards SingularityStock-Markets / Technology Oct 10, 2016 - 02:56 AM GMT
Whilst most readership interest is in my regular stock market in-depth analysis that tend to conclude in detailed trend forecast usually covering at least the next 2-3 months and where possible much longer. However, whilst it is useful to know the probable short-term direction of the stock market for trading, accumulation (investing) and distribution (banking profits) purposes, but frankly, I think most people get overly carried away if not obsessed with seeking out short-term market direction.
For instance if you have followed my articles for the past decade or so, then you should see a pattern in that trends PERSIST, i.e. stocks have been in a bull market since March 2009 and ever since then EVERY article I have written and video I have produced has concluded that as a consequence of the exponential inflation mega-trend that humanity has been on that this bull market could run for far longer and higher than anyone, including I can imagine. So what does one do when faced with a market correction, flash crash, even technical bear markets (20%+) drops ? We'll one accumulates, one BUYs!
I can understand that many reading this will be skeptical, despite my market analysis track record which speaks for itself. So in this video, the first of a series I will explain WHY, Why I am persistently so bullish on stocks when a whole host of analysts repeatedly come out with x,y,z reason for why the end is always nigh, stock market armageddon is always said to be just around the corner i.e. the Top is in mantra etc..
Well the answer is as I have voiced several times over the years that human's are LINEAR THINKING MACHINES, that's how we have evolved, we perceive everything in terms of linear trends,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 ... linear growth, linear inflation, whereas instead for the past 200 years or so humanity has been immersed in an EXPONENTIAL INFLATION MEGA-TREND,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024... and I don't just mean PRICE INFLATION! So the only real thing that I can see that differentiates me from most other analysts is that my life-experiences have conditioned me to think in EXPONENTIAL TERMS, which is why I was so sure that stocks in March 2009 were entering a bull market that would run for many years. Since whenever someone has asked me when will the bull market end, on pondering the question my reply has virtually always been that we are probably not even at the half way mark yet! IN 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 - 'probably not at the half way mark yet!' 2014, 2015, 2016, still the same response, and I will explain WHY in this video, the first of a series that will be focused on INVESTING in the Exponential Mega-trend that humanity is on, which should prove far more profitable then even usually accurate short-term trend forecasts, and perhaps may change the way some of you think i.e. in exponential terms.
