Mortgage regulations now being implemented as part of Dodd Frank legislation signed three years ago will cripple the mortgage banking industry and has caused many large banks to cut or eliminate their mortgage centers. Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors, a financial planner in TN, cautions it creates headwinds for the stock market in 2014.

"Investors should not confuse the recent new highs achieved by the stock market as a sign of a new economic boom" says investments management advisor Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors.

"Investors who have missed the recent market gains this past year should be wary of committing significant new money to the stock market at these levels. There have been significant outflows from bond funds the last few months and much of this money is being poured into equity funds because recent stock market gains have been so impressive. For those investing now, the question is whether the torrid pace will continue", says Jeff Voudrie, a financial planner in Tennessee.

"Investors should not confuse the recent new highs achieved by the stock market as a sign of a new economic boom, because these newly-enforced regulations make it much more difficult to get a mortgage and will result in fewer home sales. That will create a negative drag on the economy for years,"according to investments management advisor Jeff Voudrie.

The housing market is absolutely crucial to a revived American economy, Voudrie believes, “because each home requires many resources from lumber to sheetrock to shingles to paint to carpet. And when someone buys a new home they typically invest additional funds in new appliances and furniture. So the construction and sale of a single home represents significant expenditures. Multiply that by tens of thousands of homes and one can quickly see the economic impact.”

Yet, homes are not being built and sold at healthy rates. Banks are getting out of the mortgage industry altogether and others are laying off thousands of workers, such as CitiBank, which just let 2,200 workers go from its mortgage division.

The bottom line for investors? “It’s just one more troubling sign that could hinder markets going forward,” Voudrie says. “It doesn’t mean investors need to sell right away, but that they do need to monitor their investments closely and be ready to take action quickly when needed to lock in their profits.”

In other words, investors shouldn’t get too giddy over market highs. The market has established a true zig-zag pattern over the past several years, revealing a new era in investing that should focus on limiting large losses and reacting nimbly to changes. To help his clients navigate this new era, Voudrie developed patented software that reacts instantaneously to market shifts, called Portfolio Steward.™

The days of “buy and hold” are long gone, Voudrie believes, and the looming difficulties in the mortgage market will eventually put the brakes again on any widespread economic recovery in the U.S., making smart investments management aided by cutting-edge technology more important than ever.
