It’s a trite saying but a profound one all the same: “History always repeats.” We’ve all heard this bromide countless times, yet how many of us have truly pondered its significance?
The truism that history tends to repeat itself over time is the basis of the cyclical view of human affairs as applied to the financial market. Cycle investors believe that by studying past episodes of a similar character they can divine the outcome of currents events. It’s not surprising then that the cyclists among us have turned their attention toward the global financial market slowdown and tepid pace of the U.S. economy recovery.
When cycle analysts examine current financial and economic affairs they can see obvious parallels between the Depression Era of the 1930s leading up to World War II.
