July Seasonal Strength May Give Great Trades -- So Get Ready Now

Nobel Laureate and economist Milton Friedman stated that the growth of the monetary base must be close to the historic growth of the economy and we always pay a high price for any aberrations. In his view, expressed in this speech from his  Free To Choose PBS TV series, too much tightening caused the Great Depression, as the Fed shrunk the monetary base by 30% in the early 1930s. Thus the Fed did exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time.

Now the Fed is doing the extreme opposite, which Friedman also warned against in his speech.
