Navigating in another lost decade?

I was in Budapest for a market conference. The theme was based on Martin Pring’s recent book, ‘Investing in another lost decade’. Pring is the second generation of technicians along with John Murphy and Robert Prechter. Pring’s generation followed the generation of J. Welles Wilder, Joseph E. Granville and Ralph N Elliott.

An evening prior to the meeting, I told Martin that I went through his slides and the price structure seem to suggest that the answer to the lost decade was negative rather than affirmative. He said “I got it all wrong”. He had made an affirmative case. He believed we were headed for a lost decade.

Of course I was biased, opinionated, and seeking a confirmation of my analytical case of DOW 20,000 in Martin’s work, which was totally bearish. The visuals were the same but my interpretation contrasted his.
