Market this Week

The Markets in 2017 have been stagnant after the Trump election rally. Gaging by historical valuation indicators, stocks and bonds are currently overvalued.
Since the 2008 crisis, the Markets have shown a "false" recovery, not due to private investors buying assets, but rather due to central and retail banks buying assets, due central banks printing money.
Rather then follow the traditional Fundamental Analysis analogies, the majority of investors go by what central banks say and do. This will change as more people start to question what these banks are doing to their economies.
Be cautious as we do not currently have a free market.
