Wellington Shields’ Frank Gretz notes that the “market is supposed to be anticipatory.” He explains:

Opinions follow price memories do as well. If higher prices alone were not enough, the news always seems to improve as prices move higher. After all, the media always needs to explain the higher prices, and the good therefore becomes the emphasis. For example, theres little talk of the all-but-certain pending rate hike. Since the election the market has had a remarkable run, one built more on policy hope than policy reality. This complaint is met with the retort that it has only been 50 days, or whatever. Fair enough, but the point remains. Then, too, the market is supposed to do this, its supposed to be anticipatory. Investors are getting this, and hence, what has been persistent strength. Interestingly, investors will begin to believe they always got it no one was really worried about a possible trade war, and so on. The psychologist Baruch Fischhoff called this creeping determinism, the idea that unexpected events turn into the expected. In other words, we will remember being more bullish in November than we were.
