| [excerpt from Stock-market crash of 2016: The countdown begins]
Dow will drop 50% as market replays 2008, 2000 and 1929. That will translate into the DJIA crashing from todays 18,117 down 50% to about 9,000. Ouch, the Dow crashing all the way below 10,000. Unimaginable. Bulls will hate it. No wonder our brains tune out, turn off. Instead, we prefer the happy talk that will just keep coming out of Wall Street and Washington till the 2016 collapse. Well just keep denying reality ... till its too late, and we suffer another $10 trillion loss is on the books.

DIll give veteran MarketWatch columnist Paul B. Farrell his due: The man knows how to draw clicks.

This is the thread where folks swap ideas on savings and investment --here's a list of popular investing links that freepers have posted here and tomorrow morning we'll go on with our--
Open invitation continues always for idea-input for the thread, this being a joint effort works well. Keywords: financial, WallStreet, stockmarket, economy.
A balloon is always its biggest just before it pops.
The Quanitative easing has artificially sent all of the capital to Wall Street and Housing, as it did in 2008. The problem is that zero interest loans have enabled the Stock Market to rise on margin (as it did in the 1920’s) and allowed people to buy housing that they can not afford, based on zero or negative financing. All of this artificial manipulation is orchestrated by the Fed because of their belief in “Wealth Effect”, or, in other words, if people believe that they are more asset rich than they really are (e.g. inflated 401K’s and inflated housing), then they will spend more money. Therefore, the economy should be stimulated to the point that real unemployment should be dropping and the economy should be improving (it is not!) All of the percieved wealth is being transferred overseas because of derivative valuations, and a return of interest can be made overseas, not here. Therefore, the accumulated perceived value that is being manipulated is in excess of $300 Trillion dollars. People ask, what do we care what happens in Europe and Russia. The answer, when one base card is knocked out because of a crisis (could be Greece, Ukraine, or any number of hot spots), the whole house will come tumbling down. I don’t believe that we will make it to 2016. That card will be pulled while Obama is still president...Goodhart’s Law was published in 1975 by the Reserve Bank of Australia, and it states: “When a financial indicator becomes the object of policy, it ceases to function as an indicator.” Also, “Any observed statistical regularity will tend to collapse once pressure is placed upon it for control purposes.” ANYTHING that you hear in the media in the future will be for manipulation purposes, until it will collapse from it’s own weight. In other words, get your financial house in order—the balance on your 401K and the value that you think you have in your house are an illusion. Just Sayin’.
Hey we are just pointing out the fed manipulations not that it works perfect. All it does is stop all the what used to be a 10% correction every 12 to 18 months that are the normal market correction forces that used to keep the market aligned with the economy into large bubbles that have huge crashes.
Why do we keep asking the federal reserve and monetary policy to pull us out of economic messes.
Ronald Reagan said (paraphrase) “government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem”
The narrative from the government and the msm is to modify monetary policy. How about another strategy, the government getting out of the peoples and businesses way. Stop taxes, regulations, and social programs and watch our economy boom.
I like the headline: Experts Confused. But they’re experts!
It's not logical to say a trade is secret when everyone knows about it --unless the trade never happened and was made up. Thing is that if a share in a publicly listed corporation was bought or sold then there had to have been an actual record of who bought how many shares for how much and when. If the trade was imaginary then nobody knows the who, what, and when because it didn't happen.
Ah but we're talking super high quality elite big money confusion here. None of this small time penny ante confusion we see all the time in well, the markets...
We got lots of things going on here. One is that market crashes happen --the record shows that in the 1930's 7/8 of the value of U.S. businesses was destroyed. Another is that for hundreds of years America's been a tremendous wealth creating force for good--
--and those who acted like America was an empty balloon ended up wishing they hadn't. The crash in the '30's seemed big at the time but it was erased in less than a decade.
Finally, while none of us know what's happening tomorrow, most of us put our money on being ahead ten years from now. Others buy into the kind of crash that happens once very 20 years or so, and the rest say the bubble's going to pop but they know better than to actually put their money on the idea.
experts confused.. lolol
I’m gonna make a killing in Maalox.
I was messing around with Google public data and came across this. Until we move significantly up on this scale don’t bet against America.
Neat! [bookmarking site]. They say it’s possible to post the graphs on the web but I can’t get their info to work. At any rate, there’re still a lot of other ways to make it work.
It looks like there is a wealth of info there I’m just not having much luck at finding a rational way of finding it.
That may be due to my irrationality.
That’s my problem too. Seems it’s Google’s extreme leftist slant. They got categories for ‘poverty’ but none for ‘riches’. I’m trying to find median incomes and all I can find is median suffering at the hands of the ecology ruining businessmen.
“Googles extreme leftist slant”
LOL. It’s gonna get worse too
yuk... Just when I thot they couldn’t get worse.
