Even though both the stocks and bonds have had a dismal start to the year, most investors aren’t panicking yet.
Instead, there’s a lot of talk about the bottom being near. And hope that much of the recent losses can be regained.
That kind of optimism isn’t seen in a real bear market, cautions seasoned financial advisor Ted Oakley, Managing Partner & founder of Oxbow Advisors.
In a true bear market – which he sees as likely to arrive as the year progresses – pessimism rules. It gets to the point where no one thinks stocks can ever go up again. We’re far from that kind of capitulation in sentiment right now.
Ted joins us today to share his outlook on how he sees the investing landscape playing out from here.
