Most investors on Wall Street see the current bull market in US stocks running into the 2020’s. Many have forgotten the financial crisis of 2008 and feel there will not be a stock market crash anytime soon. Ted Bauman is a famous economist who is not so optimistic about the US stock market. He does not give a date for a stock market crash, but he feels there are macroeconomic factors that are going to kill the bull market and it could happen sooner than most anticipate. Ted Bauman is an expert on low-risk investment strategies. He feels that it is the ultimate investment style and it is the best way for investors to earn money in the markets over the long-term.
He lived in South Africa for over twenty years and has helped manage housing projects for those in need. He feels that it is up to society to help give a hand to the less fortunate and provide them with new investment opportunities to get ahead in life.Ted Bauman feels that rising interest rates could cause a stock market crash. There is so much debt in the financial system and the US government will have a hard time servicing its debt obligations if the Federal Reserve continues to hike rates. Higher rates will also entice investors to flee the stock market as bond yields become more appealing. Another popular potential catalyst that Ted Bauman feels could end the bull market in stocks is the trade war with China and the US.
The Trump Administration placed tariffs on Chinese goods and the Chinese government retaliated with their own tariffs. Mr. Bauman believes that China could hurt US multinational companies that do business in China. Many analysts feel the way Mr. Bauman feels regarding the trade war and they all feel that it could push the world into a recession.Ted Bauman has advising his subscribers to invest in Chinese stocks because he feels the trade war has made them a real bargain and they are much more undervalued than US equities. He is pushing individuals to have a proper allocation of stocks and bonds. He feels investors make the mistake of avoiding bonds. If the stock market does crash, bonds will provide a lot of protection to an individual’s financial portfolio.
