3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
33 N. LaSalle Street, Lower Level (Vault), Chicago, IL  60602   (Driving Directions)

Financial markets send signals which motivate and guide the direction in which capital chooses to flow. These market signals could serve as leading indicators for thoughtful investors as they have predictive power for (initially) the price performance of assets and (later) the economy's growth and inflation rates. David will focus on identifying some of these market signals and discussing their predictive power for four primary asset classes: stocks, bonds, commodities, and gold. He will also discuss his ideas on developing portfolios from these asset classes in response to these market signals.
