Subject: Cash is King! The Issachar Fund is 100% in Cash! However, Investor’s Business Day (IBD) has declared Friday a Follow Through Day (FTD). IBD states that every bull market in the last 100 years has started with an FTD, but not every FTD has led to a bull market. An FTD is a 1% index gain on greater volume four days after a market...

Protection Mode! The Issachar Fund is 100% in Cash! The S&P 500 is down over -22%, and junk bonds are down over -13% YTD, and I believe we are headed for a recession defined by two consecutive quarters of negative GDP.

We have been in cash since 4/21/22, and now it seems the market may have put in a tradeable bottom. The S&P 500 declined for seven weeks, then turned positive last week, so stocks were ready to bounce. The market is...

Stagflation! The Issachar Fund went to an all-cash position on 4/21/22 and remains there today! The S&P 500 index is down about -11% since going to cash, so it has been a good place to be while risk increases. I believe there is still more selling to come since I have not seen a capitulation bottom. Capitulation is when investors throw in the...
