This is an excellent article about when the next recession will start. Dr. Ed Yardeni is worth heeding, and you could bookmark his blog to stay in touch with Ed for more information.

Certainly there will be volatility along the way. You could buy and hold stocks that are in long-term trends such as healthcare (XLV) or biotech (XBI). I own both of these stocks. You could also buy TQQQ, the 3x Nasdaq, on pullbacks because it has a long-term uptrend also. We need to make money while we can because there is only so much time to accumulate wealth in a person’s lifetime.
