Excerpt from Louis Navellier's Marketmail - 09/18/2018
Last week the S&P 500 rose every day of the week, closing up 1.16% despite two tragic anniversaries – the 9/11 observance and the 10th anniversary of the 2008 market crash. Like every 9/11 anniversary, I am relieved that there has not been another major terrorist attack on U.S. soil, but I must say that the financial media’s coverage of the cause behind the 2008 financial crash has been pathetic, since they fail to account for the government’s role in causing and then exacerbating the crisis. I did my best to name names and reveal exactly what happened in my white paper, “Did the Government Really Cause the 2008 Crash?”
This report lays out the chain of events that triggered the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers as well as why Citigroup eventually was deemed “too big to fail.” Furthermore, this white paper discusses the biggest risk to financial markets since 2008, including the August 2015 intraday “flash crash.”

I sincerely hope that all of you in the Carolinas and nearby regions are safe from Hurricane Florence!
Even though the media headlines are getting more negative by the week, the market seems to ignore the noise. Bryan Perry examines the under-covered trend of global financial assets pouring into the U.S. as a safe haven. Gary Alexander cites the epidemic of toxic headlines. The problem, he says, is that too many people believe this bad news and avoid the stock market altogether. Ivan Martchev returns to his New Year’s predictions that gold would go down this year, but Bitcoin would go down a lot more. Jason Bodner examines whether Technology is in the process of a ‘Tech Wreck’ or merely taking a much-needed breather. In the end, I’ll return to examine inflation and other recent indicators to determine whether the Fed will be hawkish or dovish in their statement after their FOMC meeting next week
