Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland – Investors feel untouchable due to the stream of positive economic news. The fact that the foundation of stock prices has been built on quicksand by a combination of factors does not bother anyone. Obviously, prosperity is still in a serious crisis and investors appear not interested. Our short-term indicators show erosion, but not yet a warning signal. 2017 seems to go into the books as a stock market year where master swindler Bernard Madoff would have been proud.
The coming week is mainly about quarterly figures. For different investors, it will be a broken trading week due to Halloween. Therefore, the trading volume can be low.
