Wall of Worry

(redirected from Walls of Worry)

Wall of Worry

Informal; a market uptrend that occurs when there is significant uncertainty about its sustainability. For example, if the market is concerned about potential, new regulations or the possibility of recession but stocks increase anyway, this is called climbing a wall of worry. Price correction often follows a wall of worry.

As successive corrections in 2010, 2011, 2012 (Greece, debt ceiling and credit downgrade, post election and fiscal cliff) demonstrate, bull markets scale proverbial walls of worry. So a correction to 1460 or even lower does not negate the rational to overweight global equities over most debt niches in 2013.
