There’s nothing a market hates more than uncertainty. Investors, both large and small, build a model from which they can then generate an investment strategy. The greater the uncertainty, the more difficult it is to come up with an investment thesis.
Over the past few years, the Federal Reserve, through its aggressive monetary policy stance, has tried to reduce uncertainty and bring confidence back to the stock market. But due to the long period in which there has been a lack of volatility, this has brought complacency into the market—a dangerous situation for investors.
Many believe that once the Federal Reserve begins to reverse its monetary policy stance, starting with tapering down its asset purchase program, it won’t have a deleterious effect on the market. But I disagree.
