While it is hardly the case that private clients are abandoning the equity market — buying a net $1.22 billion — it is a trickle next to the deliberate asset allocation decision being made in favour of fixed-income securities.

If Bob Farrell’s rule number one on mean reversion plays out, look for fixed-income securities to remain in a secular bull market for some time to come.
