By Derek Moore
Jay Pestrichelli checks in with Derek Moore to discuss people that always predict horrible market crashes are coming and why it’s so unhelpful for investors. Then they talk through what the market fears (besides the normal stuff) at this point including profit margins and looming strikes. Why is economic data so confusing and if its broken. Finally, they go through the S&P 500 having the 11th best 1st half and compare this market cycle to the 2000 bear market.
