the second year of a presidents term is often the weakest if we look at the averages.  

couple that with rate increases, and i expect that the bull market is over for now.  

but... often when markets are weak to sideways, then silver also is weak.  

that is not a happy thing to think about since i am long silver.

another thought here.  the fed is in a pickle.  they often do not want to be aggressive with rates in an election year. they do not want to look like they are political.  they don't want to look like they are helping one party or the other..

but the markets may force them to be aggressive this year.

The FED is in a pickle because tightening money supply will have little/no effect other than causing stocks to correct and possibly causie a recession..    I am actually moving more and more away from equities.In this environment, even bonds are sketchy.  

But as the midterm election approaches,  I strongly suspect it will be time to re-enter equities.

We have invested in Canadian bank stks and energy. Plus a small amount of physical gold and silver

Considered crypto but decided to add to gold

Bank stks re-invest in more stks automatically when ever a dividend is declared

Canadian bank stks have been the winner for us by a wide margin

But that was then, not the future
