Event Details

First Presentation : Continued Bull Market? Or is a Cyclical Bear Market Ahead? INVESTORS

For stock investors, anticipating a recession is a very important consideration in protecting your portfolio from major drawdowns. That is because, historically, recessions are associated with the most severe bear markets. This business cycle expansion has certainly been unique in many ways, including that it has been amongst the longest, yet slowest on record. So, where are the risks and opportunities today? Martin will discuss what asset allocation decisions can bring you profitably and safely through this current financial market environment.


  • Where we are in the business cycle and what that means for your portfolio

  • The technical condition of stocks, bonds and commodities

  • How to stay a step ahead of changes in the economy and financial markets

We're trying something new...

Our June speakers, Martin Pring & Jim Kopas, will be presenting live from Walnut Creek, Ca via webcast.  Not to worry -- you'll still have full capability to interact with Speakers.

  • Speakers will be live and presenting in real-time

  • We'll have copies of presentation slides available for download and speaker will control the flow of  their presentations.

  • You'll be able to interact with Speakers, ask questions, etc. via the webcast chat window

So why are we doing this??  

  • Sadly, it's just a fact of life that many firms/speakers don't have the time or budget to fly cross-country to present to a (relatively) small crowd. 

  • Also, the chapter has a (very) limited speaker travel budget --- i.e., the revenue we receive from your tickets!!  --- to bring speakers in.  

  • End result: Having remote-speaker capability will allow the chapter to offer more nationally known firms and speakers. 

So come join Martin Pring &  Jim Kopas as we usher in a new era for the chapter!!
