"[...] Markets go up and markets go down. Astute investors and sales people make money in both. [...] It’s not a question of if a market correction is going to happen, but when it’s going to happen. Sure, maybe first tuesday is more bearish than most, but so what. The party can’t last forever and that’s okay. Over the past 40 years, most corrections have occurred around presidential election cycles – either at the end of an administration or at the beginning of a new one. I’m going to predict a recession to hit in 2016-2017. And when this happens, there will be plenty of opportunities to make money."
