How much longer? Bulls still on parade

As the bull market rumbles on, more and more investors are asking when it will end. It’s a critical question with major investment implications. Our short answer is not any time soon. Why? Because in the past 70 years, sustained US equity bear markets have been rare without a recession also occurring.

That’s why we created a Bull Market Monitor to track the US economic expansion. It follows a number of indicators to gauge whether the economy is overheating and if financial conditions are restricting growth. The good news is that these indicators suggest the expansion is likely to continue for a while. Nonetheless, the economy is on a path to overheating, and thus must be closely monitored.
