That being said, there are a number of concerns that could keep the markets on edge and, were they to materialize, the result could be a correction similar to those that occurred in 2011-12 (-19.4%) and 2016 (-14.2%).

U.S Likely to Hit the Financial Wall by 2017! Here's Why

The deficits aren't going to stop anytime soon. The debt mountain will keep growing...Obviously, the debt can't keep growing faster than the economy forever, but the people in charge do seem determined to find out just how far they can push things....The only way for the politicians to buy time will be through price inflation, to reduce the real burden of the debt, and whether they admit it or not, inflation is what they will be praying for....[and] the Federal Reserve will hear their prayer. When will the economy reach the wall toward which it is headed? Not soon, I believe, but in the meantime there will be plenty of excitement. [Let me explain what I expect to unfold.] Words: 1833
