StratiFi’s Steve Sears Deconstructs The Stock and Bond Market For TD Ameritrade

San Francisco, June 22, 2018  –  StratiFi Technologies’ announced that Steven M. Sears, the company’s chief market strategist, recently appeared on the TD Ameritrade Network.

Mr. Sears discussed liquidity in the stock market, how investors are seeking safety in large-capitalization technology stocks and why the Russell 2000 (IWM) has emerged as a gauge of risk that rivals the CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX. He also explained that many investors are focused on event-driven trading because they are having great difficulty trying to navigate the market in any more definitive fashion.

Moreover, he noted that many investors are confused by the different messages that are being telegraphed by the stock and bond markets. The yield curve in the bond market is flat, which suggests an economic recession. The stock market, however, has had some down days of late, but is mostly grinding higher on the strength of solid corporate earnings, which indicates the economy is growing.

These disconnects, Mr. Sears noted, are creating demand among investors to use StratiFi’s risk-management software to better understand the risk in their portfolios. Many investors and advisors are concerned that bonds, which have historically reduced the risk of owning stocks, may no longer provide true diversification.
