Stock Market Ready for Liquidation?

I advise you to look at buying stocks—but not quite yet; the time for buying hasn’t arrived. Just like a fire or liquidation sale at a retailer, the best buying opportunity in the stock market is when the discounts are at their heaviest. We’re not at that point yet.

As I have noted in my commentaries following the Federal Reserve Chairman’s recently proposed exit plan for the Fed’s bond buying and its effect on interest rates, the stage is set for the stock market to readjust to the norm. By this, I mean the rapid gains we have seen in the stock market over the past few years—specifically this year—are soon to be a thing of the past.

With the Fed planning to scale back on its monetary stimulus and, in turn, drive up bond yields, I do not envision a massive and sustained period of selling in the stock market, but instead a brief opportunity to buy some discounted stocks sometime on the near horizon.

Some are calling for a bear market to surface, but I don’t agree. While the Fed’s money printing may soon be over, as long as interest rates remain low and the economic renewal is actually in place, we could see an upward move in corporate America and the stock market—but it won’t come easily.
