Sell in May and the rest before the end of the summer - is the advice given to investors of the investment bankers Goldman Sachs - by AMarkets materials.
Despite the fact that the strategic team of the bank predicts S & P500 at the level of 2100 to the end of the year, experts expect Goldman strong volatility of growth until the end of 2016 - so intense and unpredictable that not all players will be able to withstand the stress. In early summer, the broader market index could fall by 5-10% to a level 1850-1950. Hazardous fundamental factors - too high a market value of securities (on P / E index). Another factor - the risks from the demand for the shares. At the start of 2016 the demand for paper has been sluggish.
However, over the past 2 weeks the players bought securities at $ 23 billion (futures). Investors Sentiment (Sentiment Indicator) rose to the level of 32 - although it is still below the values of the middle of winter. Other factors - the presidential election and the uncertainty surrounding the intentions of the US Federal Reserve to increase the rate. Experts advise investors to be prepared (but without much fuss) to the sale on the stock market. You can buy options based on sales. Another strategy - to fix the position in May and in the summer to do nothing. Especially since that summer promises to be "hot".
