What matters this week: is the US getting set for downside?
Elsewhere in this week's Investment Matters, I look at the current US company profit reporting 'season'. And so far, they are above expectations, but still negative.
There is merit in putting those numbers into context with broader US economic data, to get a better sense of what is happening in the US.
And so, Investment Matters this week looks at a compilation of US market indicators, from Bezerkeley Economic Insights.
For the US stock-market, it all seems rather irrational at the moment. But remember that:
"the stock market can remain irrational for longer than you can remain solvent."

These indicators focus on downside risk. That is not to say that there will be a recession or market collapse.
Just be careful.
We are cautious.
