I’m Keith DeGreen and this is your Investors Minute.

At DeGreen Capital Management we’ve rotated heavily into U.S. equity ETFs. We’ve even added some leveraged exchange-traded funds. We expect a strong year-end for U.S. markets. Here are some more reasons why:

Lower oil prices are saving U.S. consumers more than $200 million per day.

Obviously, this puts more money into the hands of Americans’ favorite merchants. That’s why lower oil prices may also contribute to a strong holiday retail season.

Meanwhile, our rising dollar has reduced the relative cost of almost all other commodities. This results in even more disposable income for consumers, and in stronger bottom lines among most of corporate America.

One of the big winners? Transportation stocks. They have significantly outperformed nearly every other major average since mid-October.

But the biggest winners of all? Americans who are wise enough to invest in the many positive fundamentals now affecting our markets.
