"Full-cycle risks have a way of emerging in ways that investors wholly rule out at market peaks," John Hussman, the former economics professor who is now president of the Hussman Investment Trust, said in a recent note to clients. "Glorious half-cycle market advances leave investors vulnerable to catastrophe, because investors hold contempt for anyone who suggests there may be a cliff on the other side of the mountain."
