It's a day of looking at expectations and then deconstructing them as Chuck chats with Deb Clarke, global head of investment research at Mercer, about the firm's 2020 outlook -- which includes slower growth globally, better opportunities worldwide than in America and more -- and discusses technical analysis with Martin Pring of Pring Research who sees signs suggesting that any troubles ahead in the near term will be buying and trading opportunities because real market troubles appear unlikely in the year ahead. Christian Pittard of Aberdeen Asset Management talks about changes in structure and more that are helping make the closed-end fund market more attractive, before Seth Masters -- best known for a correct market forecast he made with Bernstein Private Wealth Management in 2012 -- looks at the factors and thinking that renders most forecasts weak and meaningless.
