Sidestepping Downturns in Equity Markets: A Tactical Approach – Salient – 1.15.19


Now On Demand.

The current bull market cycle is almost a decade old. While this cycle is mature by historical standards, an old Wall Street maxim reminds us that “bull markets do not die of old age.” In reality, it’s a change in macroeconomic factors or internal market dynamics that typically precedes or accompanies a trend change in the stock market.

Viewing the market through the lens of history can illuminate distinct signals of change if you know where to look. By analyzing these indicators real-time in the context of market cycles, a tactical manager has the potential to effectively position their strategies to take advantage of market movements. Join us for a webcast as we explore:

  • Bear and bull market cycles
  • Historical precursors of market shifts
  • Asset allocation strategies to successfully navigate the market
