Long-Term Market Cycles
2011 represents the halfway point of a major financial supercycle that began in 2001. It's not too late to ride this new economic wave!
"Secular" (or long-term) market cycles for stocks and commodities over the last century average 15-23 years in length. The last bull market in equities started in 1982 and ended dramatically in 2000 when the stock bubble popped, leaving bonds, real estate and commodities as the safest investments. After the housing bubble popped in 2006, oil and gold served as great uncertainty hedges. In 2008 the credit and oil bubbles both popped, leaving gold alone as the best investment of the 21st century, according to author Craig R. Smith.

-- "The worst period of the financial crisis is over, but the three phases of the crisis — the crisis itself, the worst economic recession since World War II and the highest inflation since the 1980s, have not reached an end," according to Tao Dong, chief economist for Asia at Credit Suisse First Boston.
