after the market closes.

“When the market is grappling with a lot of things at once, it’s generally a headwind, which means the more managers are condoning a lot of issues, the more they have to mitigate risk,” Ritchie said on Monday. Interview with Real Vision.

in our area Today’s callwarns of a Secular bear market The environment – where prices can fall below average gains for years – with solid advice for investors. Among his concerns, he noted that only 20% of Nasdaq stocks are currently above the 200-day moving average.

“I’m not saying we’re going to go down 10% in three days…but every time that happens, it happens in an environment like where we’re sitting where there’s been a distribution dominating the bar, we’re trading below technical areas of support and there’s a little bit of leadership.”

For retail investors in particular, there is another big topic to watch. “The market has reinforced some of the risk management strategies that I think are challenging and have been challenged over the past 18 months and I don’t think that’s over.” This common strategy includes buying on dips after market sell-offs.

He’s been saying for months that investors need to raise money, and that’s still the case, even if indexes rebound. Because it is pointless to try to pick the winners now because the leaders in the next cycle may be different.
