Welcome to The Big Mike Fund Podcast. Today I have the pleasure of chatting with Frances Newton Stacy. She works for Optimal Capital as the director of portfolio strategies. Frances is also a frequent guest on both CBS, CNBC, as well as Fox Business News as a commentator on Central Bank Policy.
She also blogs about the trading community by helping to recognize key cycles and significant support and resistance levels. Today we’re talking about her thoughts on the future of the economy: jobs, the stock market, real estate, and the general overview of what we may see in the upcoming year.
