With very volatile stock market swings, is it really possible to have a long-term investing strategy where wealth is maximized in business cycle expansions and capital is preserved in business cycle contractions?
If a strategy of monitoring business cycles (currently used by economists) and long-term stock market trends can be successfully employed for the benefit of the individual investor, why doesn’t the Financial Industry (Securities versus Banking/Insurance) support utilizing it?
What is the future direction of personal investing? Should it continue to be the status Quo? Do investors have to accept the current investing conditions and strategies espoused by the Financial Industry? Will investors continue to tolerate the volatile stock market conditions experienced in the last two business cycle contractions? Please read the following whitepaper that discusses the PROBLEM, the ROADBLOCKS, and the SOLUTION to greater wealth through a capital preservation and market value investing strategy……for the benefit of long-term investors and not the Financial Industry!

The US business cycle is an amalgamation of 50 state business cycles. Changes from expansions to peak to contraction, or contractions to trough to expansion are gradual and occur over many months. Leading economic indicator trends provide insights into future business cycle activity. Some economic indicators are better correlated to these trends. The following brown link is a page which contains the monitored economic indicators and for which the long-term trending views are provided.
