He made a name for himself in early 2000, when he correctly predicted that the year would be the roughest one for stocks since 1994. He then correctly predicted the downturn in 2001 and 2002. In 2003, he originally estimated the S&P 500 would end the year at 750. But at the end of May 2003, he revised his target up to 1050 2003 after the U.S. Federal Reserve cut short-term rates to just 1.0% and the U.S. Congress passed the most aggressive collection of tax cuts in the post war period in an effort to pull the U.S. economy out of its economic slump. The index closed the year close to 1,100. Cliggott is also known for predictions he made during the 2004 fiscal year and hosting a weekly radio show on the VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network's Business Channel in 2007-2008 titled "The Economy and the Markets".
