Why the 2016 Bear Market Will Soon Come Out of Hibernation

The way this earnings season is shaping up, a resurgence of the January bear market is virtually inevitable.

Both analyst estimates and guidance from the companies have been moving lower for weeks. Almost every sector is expected to see earnings shrink this quarter.

These numbers are sounding a warning investors can't afford to ignore.

When you see them, you'll understand why...

This Is Not the Start of Another Bull Market in 2016

Investors may be feeling better about markets after U.S. stock indexes closed Tuesday at their highest levels in nearly two months. But despite the recent gains, this is not the start to another bull market.

In fact, Money Morning experts see U.S. markets actually falling again in 2016. But before we get to their stock market predictions, here's why hopes of a bull market have returned...

Mark Your Calendars: Bulls Return (Briefly) in March

There's no nice way to say it: The past three months have been ugly for the markets – and the "buy and hold" investing crowd.

Some of my favorite market-tracking exchange-traded funds (ETFs) tell the grim tale…

The 1/100 Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (CBOE: DJX) traded at $177.66 on Dec. 1, 2015. As of Feb. 25, 2016, it's declined more than 6.2% to $166.28…

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE Arca: SPY) could be had for $209.44 a share on Dec. 1, but as of Feb. 25, it's declined more than 7.7% to $193.07…

And the PowerShares QQQ Trust Series 1 ETF (Nasdaq: QQQ), which tracks the Nasdaq 100, has declined nearly 11%. It's down to $102.26 from $114.48 in the beginning of December.

What's worse, these declines actually reflect the oversold bounce we experienced in mid-February. We haven't seen another.

But… for all that, I'm really excited about the month ahead of us. There are some big profits coming our way.

That's right. I'm bullish in March, because I've seen the same pattern I'm about to show you.

But we have to move quickly, because this bull run will be powerful, but very short-lived. So let's get ready...

Is the Bull Market Over?

We’ve just been through the longest bull market run since World War II.

In the six years from March 2009 to May 2015, the Dow climbed from 6,626 to 18,024. The S&P 500 rose from 683 to 2,108.

But those gains have been under siege for the last few months…
