Sometimes it can pay for investors to put their money in a “Shoe Box” (not have monies at risk).
If an investor had put their money in a Shoe Box in 1929 (prior to the Dow declining 90%), 3 years later they would have had a 900% GAIN IN PURCHASING POWER! 100% Purchasing Power gains would have taken place if monies were put in a shoe box during the broad market declines from 2000 to 2003 and 2007 to 2009!
Below is chart with a couple of proprietary tools I use to help decide when short and long-term/401k plan investors, should put some money into a “Shoe Box!”

As can be seen in the top chart, these leading indicators have not sent a “Shoe Box” signal at this time…..yet they are very close. Stay tuned!!!
