The investment world has really changed in 2020, it seems. Retail investors have outperformed hedge funds. Risk tolerance has accelerated. Portfolios have grown for those in equities by a large margin. But many have forgot to ask, what got us here in the first place?

This Christmas, Wall Street is partying like it’s 1999 – MarketWatch
Retirement accounts are ending the year in better shape than we could possibly have expected. But stock prices and investor euphoria are now in dangerous territory. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m starting to hear echoes of another Christmas when a boom gave way to years of bitter disappointment.

Gold prices have increased with the amount of global net negative-yielding debt | Post by Adam Perlaky | Gold Focus blog | World Gold Council
Gold continued its strong June, closing the week higher (LBMA 0.8%, XAU 0.7%) for the sixth straight week. It was as high as $1,440 on Tuesday, but gave up some of its gains late in the week as Fed Chairman Powell made comments that a 50bps cut in July was ‘too much’.
Pandemic-stocks: Covid drove massive market gains — what happens next
The pandemic turned 2020 into a year of unprecedented events – not the least of which was the swift crash and then record-fast recovery of the stock market. The market’s race higher has been in stark contrast to an economy that has been growing slowly.

The stock market is rising higher and higher. There has never been a time in which so many investors have been putting money like this into the markets before. More tech stocks are becoming household names. Many unicorns are born every day. Billion dollar companies with excessive debt, SPAC deals, and IPO’s are absorbing the insatiable investor appetite.

Wake up to the suits and ties. They’re all lying to you. None are your friends. None wish to help you. Wolves in sheep clothing. More distractions than ever before. The magician always makes a spectacle to hide the trick.
What if the stimulus included more money for people. Is $1200 enough? $2000? Is this going to solve any deep rooted problems? What about the disgraceful 5600 pages filled with billions that have nothing to do with where people actually need help? #StimulusChecks #StimulusBill
We live in a fantasy land. More money flowing in than ever before, IPO frenzy, housing skyrocketing. Euphoria never end well. The higher it goes the worse it will be. Slow and steady growth is much safer. #money #investments #debt
