Brendan Ahern, chief investment officer at KraneShares, says that any recession or economic downturn in the United States will wind up having spillover effects in China, where the economy is so geared to the West that it is the proverbial 'canary in the coal mine,' because if manufacturing there is slowing and exports are down, it reflects a sluggish economy in the U.S. and Europe. He sees improved potential for China and emerging markets, provided that the politicians on both sides can avoid trade conflicts and allow for improved trade. Rob Shaker of Shaker Financial Services, says that the stock market hasn't been climbin a wall of worry so much as a 'Wall of Meh,' but notes that economic mediocrity is creating opportunities for long-term investors in closed-end funds to buy into discounts now and get paid off as early as the second half of this year, when he expects a 'generalized recovery' from today's worrisome issues. Plus, Gene Peroni of Peroni Portfolio Advisors talks technical analysis and says the range-bound market is likely to see the upper limits on the current market swings move higher -- by more than 10 percent -- before the year ends.
