Momentum peaks. (The momentum peak was seen in the Dec. 8-9 period) Volume peaks. (The volume peak was seen on Dec. 16) Price peaks. (Shortly -- in the Jan. 12-19 period?) So, as commentators focus on Dow Jones Industrial 20,000, my eyes are on something very different -- a peak in momentum, market volume and, ultimately, price. Volatility remains underpriced and equities are overvalued and represent an unattractive reward vs. risk proposition. And Donald Trump likely will help make volatility and uncertainty great again this year. Two steps and a stumble?
