Rogers says stock market declines coming

Over the next couple of years, there will still be pain. I am not very good at short-term trading but I certainly know we will have plenty of problems in financial markets over the next couple of years. We’ll have bankruptcies, huge fluctuations and declines in stock markets. We will have the bond market slowing a lot and a lot of turmoil in currencies as well. 

In the US, we haven’t had even a 10 per cent correction in stocks — it’s been five years. Now, we will have a lot of big declines starting in a year or two.

Jim Rogers is a smart investor who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1973. By 1983 the fund gained more than 4000 percent.
