That's why I said "once the correction finishes". I didn't say it was over.

Some I'm reading that people saying correction are saying it should be around 13,000 or another number. If that's the case it looks like we have about 3000 to go or whatever. Following that logic how smart is it to say buy?

That's why right now would be a good time to buy. Once the correction finishes, the stock market will start rising again. This means one could take advantage of any stocks that have dropped in price to buy them at a low point then make a bunch of money when they start rebounding.


Fair enough, though when reading the preceding sentence, it seems you're saying to buy now. For specific individual stocks, that may be a good play. For the market in general, no.

I guess I should have been a bit more vague with that sentence... :/

On the contrary, precision would have been the superior route.

Yes, this is different than 2008.
If it goes, it is going to be much much worse.

Very wise


The markets have a long way to go before they meet reality again in my opinion.
It has not gone up because the economy was doing so great, or the companies were in such a good and healthy condition, it was purely driven through interventions from central banks, ZIRP and QE.

Don't worry, it's just noise.....
Just wait until China dumps their trillions in US Treasuries and the Arabs decide to value oil in Euros rather than the Petro Dollar.
Then we're really hooped.

I guess they thought putting a bandaid on it would eventually lead to a complete fix down the road...I'm thinking they are wrong.

This country is going to sh!t quicker than I thought...We're one major "thing" from all hell breaking loose I feel. I don't usually feel things like that, either. I am so not a doom porn junkie but, IDK, I just feel like something major is on the cusp. What that is, I have no clue.

That's because the Federal Reserve and the 16th Amendment were too new.

1929 was the first "test" to get the programs arranged and enacted.

At one point in the video it mentions there was an 80% unemployment rate in Toledo (Ohio). And we thought the last crash was rough

Nothing to see here;

Monday ended the biggest three-day loss for the Dow ever with 1,477.45 points shed. (The next biggest three-day loss for the Dow totaled 929.49 points in November 2008.)

The Dow has been down five consecutive days for a point loss of 1,673.9.

Cumulative volume traded was 13.94 billion shares for the highest volume day since Aug. 10, 2011, when 15.19 billion shares traded.

The Dow traveled more than 3,000 points within the first 90 minutes of trading on Monday.

WTI settled down 5.5 percent for the worst day since July 6 when it lost 7.73 percent. (Monday's low of $37.75 was WTI's lowest point since Feb. 24, 2009, when it hit a low of $37.65.)

9 out of 10 S&P 500 sectors are in correction; (energy and materials are off their highs by 20 percent or greater).

Industrial, tech, telecom, utilities, financials, consumer discretionary and health care are all off their highs by 10 percent or more.

S&P 500 companies collectively lost about $685 billion in market cap (about $100 billion more than Apple's market cap).

NYSE volume was at 6.57 billion shares, the heaviest since Oct. 27, 2011.

Shimita year is really heating up near the end, Hang on for the remainder of the ride to September 11th.
