Welcome to RidingTheTrend.com!

The trend, as they say, is your friend!

Very good financial results are often achieved by taking advantage of that adage, especially over time! From a megatrend perspective, if you invested in one of the averages years ago you’d be doing very well now!

Historically speaking the bias is toward the bullish side. There are a number of reasons for that to be true, one of which is inflation. Inflation is probably the single largest catalyst for advancing stock prices over time. Think back 10 or 20 years ago! Where were the averages then? In Dec. 2000 the Dow Jones was around 10,800! The high for 2018 was over 26,000! That’s an increase of 140%!

Consider this! Over the past 20 years (1998 to 2018), using the Consumer Price Index published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the inflation rate calculates to 53.83%. The Dow Jones Industrials, if moving purely from an inflationary spiral alone would have to be at a minimum of $16,565, not adjusting for profits, which shows how inflation can affect a trend!

Calculator: https://inflationdata.com/Inflation/Inflation_Calculators/Cumulative_Inflation_Calculator.aspx

If the inflation rate characteristics remain similar in the next twenty years as in the past twenty years, with all things being equal, the Dow Jones Industrials should easily reach 39,800 by 2038! And when, not if, it does will demonstrate the effect of inflation as an active driving force propelling advances!

Companies need to keep up with inflation in order to stay in business!

As result prices charged to wholesale and retail customers have to go up, which in turn leads to higher earnings in the bottom line! Bottom line earnings increases are not purely as a result of inflation of course! Naturally other factors are involved but looking at it purely from inflationary standpoint earnings do increase as a result of inflation! It’s baked in the cake and part of the way the system is set up! But that’s all dealing with megatrends over a long period!

What the site does 

Most people are more interested in what might happen in the next month to a year from now! That’s the period length the website deals with. Shorter-term stock analysis and forecasts between one and 6 months are what you’ll find on RidingTheTrend.com!

Riding the trend is technical and fundamental analysis forecasting site using original indicators to help forecast equity trends and levels, with a small number of celestial influences thrown in for good measure!

The forecast's main objective is to anticipate short-term moves anywhere from one to six months but at times may also include longer-term trends!

Although the intent is to be as accurate as possible in anticipating market shifts unexpected events can throw a forecast off by a wide margin at times!
