Is the Dow Jones Industrial Average Set to Crash in 2019?

By Dale Gillham | Published 24 June 2019

Lately when I read the news about the US stock market I am getting conflicting information. It seems that one day the Dow Jones Industrial Average is set to crash and the next, President Trump says he is the reason Wall Street is rising so strongly and the market rises. Then the media promotes market crashes, corrections and bear markets. This conflicting information as to the future outlook for the S&P 500 is causing confusion among investors, so it’s no wonder I am being asked what will the S&P 500 do in 2019. Will it rise, why is it rising now, will it keep rising or should we prepare for a market crash?

We have seen continued talks around the yield curve and how this indicates that the Dow Jones Industrial average will fall away into a low in two years. Anyone who studies the stock market knows that it runs in cycles. One of the more common market cycles on the S&P 500 is the 12 year cycle, and given that the last major low on the S&P 500 index occurred in March 2009, it is obvious that the next low will be due in 2021.

There is a lot of talk in the news about President Trump and Xi Jingping of China meeting after the G20 summit in the hopes of resuming talks regarding the trade war. Right not it looks positive and that talks will resume, which can only be a good thing for the US stock market in 2019 and beyond. There is also a lot of talk around whether the Fed will slash interest rates again next month and whether the recent fall in interest rates can be linked to the US China trade talks.

In this week’s US Stock Market Report Dale looks at whether the US stock market will crash in 2019, have a correction or enter a bear market and he explains the difference between all three? He also addresses how you can plan to profit from the future direction of the market and looks at what are the top performers on the S&P 500.
