Does stock market wisdom still apply or not?Von Swiss Resource Capital AG
A well-known stock market rule is to sell in May and get back in in the fall.
If this and other stock market rules always applied, we would all be stock millionaires. But where does the "sell in May and go away" rule originate in the first place? In the 17th and 18th centuries in the United Kingdom, the upper classes went to the country. Therefore, they sold stocks beforehand. In September, the upper class returned to London and traded on the stock market again. However, an examination of past years reveals that in 22 out of 36 individual years, following this strategy would have led to underwhelming results. And if you look at 57 years, the results are even worse. Observing seasonality in the markets is certainly interesting, but it should not be overstated. Today, markets seem to be used to bad conditions. Banking crises, interest rate fears and inflation, and geopolitical squabbles have become daily bread. An end to interest rate hikes by the ECB and Fed is being discussed. Whether this year or perhaps not until the beginning of next year, inflation will in any case remain above interest rates in Europe. From this point of view, there is no threat to equities.
Gold and silver will continue to be among the preferred investment opportunities because they promise security over a longer period of time. Silver as a metal for high-tech products should benefit from the increasing areas of application. Whether smartphones, tablets, in automobiles, and in the solar industry, silver is coming into use. While gold is a stronger diversifier than silver, its little brother can also do its job as a good portfolio diversifier. Also, silver is currently cheaper per ounce than gold. If investors want to bet on silver's link to the economy, they can do so with stocks like Tier One Silver or Vizsla Silver.
Tier One Silver - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/tier-one-silver-inc/ - has several projects (gold, silver, base metals) in Peru, including the Curibaya project.
In Mexico works Vizsla Silver - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/vizsla-silver-corp/ - at the previously producing Panuco silver-gold project.
