I was reading through the news on Business insider today and found an interesting article about how the markets a currently very similar to how they acted before the 1987 crash. Link here www.google.ca/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com what do you guys think?

I should also add that the only other news site that I have found this story on is RT. So that being said either it is not being reported widely or it could be disreputable. Also if anyone knows how to embed a link please do it. I am on a phone and I can't figure it out.

The bailout bubble is about to burst.

Millennials can't afford to buy anything.

They are due a crash, so why not now? Although, I have been reading the same thing for the last 5 years.

Exactly my thoughts. The question is, if they are able to artificially keep it propped up or if these tactics are beginning to fail.

At least in terms of the U.S., TPTB would want to at least keep it propped up until up to the election so the current Administration doesn't look bad

It would put the proverbial 'cat amongst the pigeons' though wouldn't it?

I wouldn't put it past Soros to throw in a curve ball though.

I would love for it to hold out a while longer. I would like to be able to sell my current house and get a bigger one locked in at a low rate for 5 years before the interest rates skyrocket.

The market has been so woefully manipulated and artificially buttressed over the past 8 years, that I almost feel like it really doesn't matter what it does. I withdrew my investments 9 years ago and moved them to non-publicly traded investments. I'd much rather be investing in reality than in whatever imaginary-but-reported-as-news nonsense the Federal Reserve and White House are engineering on any given day.

Crash = so what
Skyrocket = don't care

It will take some systemic changes and some years before I can view Wall Street as anything more than string puppets used to ensure Americans are supportive of DC's whims.

The Stock Market is always on the verge of collapse, because it is held together by a common desire among the participants to make a lot of money. It's kind of like Tinkerbell, the fairy who relies on audience applause to keep her alive. The minute people stop believing in the value of things, then the Market will crash.

When will that be? *shrug*

There's a big difference between a crash and a correction. This market is long overdue for a meaningful correction.

In a sense, its presently making an internal correction. Everything depends on the Fed and when they do the next quarter point raise in the discount rate.

What's compounding this issue is that the US is already in a Business recession according to some experts with low to near no growth in earnings and GDP.

Totally agree.

It's a load of made up #, that doesn't mean a thing. Who cares if it crashes?

Unfortunately, the financial companies invest heavily, via pension funds and the like, it scares the living bejesus out of the old folk!!

The methods the gov't uses to manipulate the economy are losing their effectiveness. Interest rates are already near zero, and even below zero in some countries. Despite this, we've had the worst economic recovery in memory, and even that appears to be nearing its end.

On top of this, the entire European banking system is on the verge of a total meltdown. Once this starts, a major stock market crash in the US will be unavoidable. I'm sure that Obama is doing his best to hold it off until after the election, but seemingly every economist with any credibility is not talking about if a crash is coming, but about when the crash will come, and how bad it will be. If any kind of "black swan" event occurs, the crash might happen whether the Dems are ready for it or not.

The local financial expert said "They could, it's certainly possible. Anyone who thinks we have a strong economy is kidding themselves and it wouldn't take much, but I also wouldn't put my name on a prediction like that. That's crystal ball gazing."

This, coupled with a war with Russia will ensure the election is postponed. He didn't get UN secretary-general, so he might as well stay in the White House a few more years.

I'm looking to do the opposite- sell this place while it's still worth something, pocket the cash, then buy some land after the prices bottom out.

Anyone with debt on property cares- I've been paying off a mortgage for seven years, and all it would take is one bad month for it to be worth less than I owe- meaning I can't sell it without walking away with a bunch of debt on something I don't have- and this is a relatively stable area. One bad month could mean the difference of walking away from a property with a million dollars in profit vs a million dollars in debt in some places. For me, that number is closer to 50k.
I'd take 50k cash over 50k debt...

Shhhh . . . . don't let the SEC hear you. They may try to hang the crash all on you personally if it does.

yeah, the 'tinkerbell' anology will work too..... I liken the shlock market to musical chairs, the big-name favorites will pretty much remain the headliners => FANG farcebook/amazon/netflicx/google...while the run-of-the-mill utilities/reits/ other income returning shares become more orphaned or else Nationalized by the Demokrat-Progressives...


when Apple gets to be a Trillion-Dollar Corporation that will be the time for the last rearranging of the deck-chairs on the SS DOW-JONES as it sinks as fast as the Titanic did last century

precious metal miners will explode at 2 thousand % and 90% of the gold miners like BARRICK who sold their 'ultra deep' gold at under $1,250.oo will be the Pied Piper that leads all the children in the kingdom to parts unknown, on the 'trail of crushed dreams'
