Love this scheduling wisdom. Slow down and things will happen faster. Many fill their time with meetings to fill a void that is better filled by stillness rather than vibration. Lack of action is still action. Take time to read, think and create. Focus is extremely powerful. pic.twitter.com/m8KavCCrgG

Back in February, when the stock market was near its all-time record high, Shervin Pishevar went completely against the crowd and began issuing a number of tweets, declaring that the stock market was due for a massive correction. Pishevar reasoned that stocks were generally overbought as a direct consequence of the flood of easy credit that had pervaded the market since the start of the Federal Reserve’s highly controversial quantitative easing program.
Pishevar specifically predicted that most major indices would be underperforming their 200-day moving averages by the end of the year.
Rack another point up for Shervin Pishevar
Pishevar has once again proven to be a financial prophet, albeit one who arrives at his conclusions by cold logic rather than divination. Currently, as the stock market rushes towards the end of fiscal year 2018, all of the major market indices are, in fact, underperforming their 200-day moving averages.
This is yet another good prediction from Pishevar regarding the stock market. He also predicted that all of the gains from 2018 would be wiped out by the end of the year. As of this writing, the Dow Jones is trading at below its January 1, 2018, price levels. With these predictions, Pishevar is reaffirming why so many of his Twitter followers take his every word with the seriousness usually reserved for wise men and prophets.
