Comment: More professional traders and investors have recently warned that the market is way overbought, the valuations are obscenely high, and that a number of indicators such as the Schiller P/E CAPE ratio are the highest (30) since 1929 and 1997. Schiller wrote that it doesn’t mean a crash or bear market is imminent, but it is a “red flag” (my words). And yet, the market crawls to all time highs on low volume and institutional participation. What is a trader to do?
In my opinion, sit and wait because the day of reckoning will eventually come. I’ll have a lot more to say later this week when I publish my next column.
