Playing Defense All Around The World

Many investors today are feeling conflicted. In one respect, they see a U.S. stock market that appears completely unyielding in its persistence to the upside despite the fact that we will soon be entering the sixth year of what is currently the third longest bull market in history. As a result, they want to participate in any further upside stocks have to offer. On the other hand, they see a stock market that will soon be entering the sixth year of a bull market on what has been more than dubious fundamentals all along and that has just now lost the monetary policy fuel from QE related asset purchases that helped propel it higher for so many years. Consequently, they are reluctant to participate any further amid the fear that they might be committing fresh capital to the market just as the graying bull market is finally coming to an end. What is the conflicted investor to do? One possibility is to consider playing defense all around the world.
