Comment: Bull market has further to go

RELATED TOPICS​

The current bull market that began in March 2009 has further to go, according to Stephen Sutherland, chief investment strategist at ISACO…

The market has been correcting since the 2nd May 2011 and from my daily analysis, it is pretty clear that since the correction bottomed out on the 16th June, institutional investors have been secretly buying, helping the market and stocks to recover off their recent lows. It’s also obvious from the bearish nature of the financial media that most people are missing out on what’s really going on; including many full-time traders. Due to the extent of the recent negative news headlines, most uneducated investors mistakenly think the market is going to head lower.

Trading volumes are always low at this time of the year due to investors taking their holidays over summer. This makes market reading more difficult and that’s why knowing if leading stocks are acting well or acting unwell is critical.

During a correction period, when I see the markets best stocks showing bottoming action, I know it’s only a matter of time before the general market follows.

When markets move sideways, stocks and investment funds move sideways too. The first two quarters of this year have been a period of rest and recuperation. After the robust gains made in 2009 and 2010, the market was due a rest and the recent correction has been perfect in helping to reset the market. With the market resting for the last six months, I expect solid returns for the final two quarters of the year. Now is a great time to be invested.
