LONDON (Reuters) - Investors are fixated about when stimulative monetary policy will come to an end, expecting it to be the finale for a sweet period on financial markets that has seen world stocks rise as much as 75 percent in seven months.

With that in mind, the coming week should be striking, with a feast of events ahead that touch directly on the issue.

There are meetings at major central banks, including the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank, as well minutes from the past meetings of others. Then there is a G20 finance ministers meeting.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Uh oh! Is it time to pull out your investments? Is it time to cash in? It might be. As the Central Banks around the world decide to stop artificially propping up the economy it might trigger a sell off. Wouldn't that cause a huge crash?

A crash? Let's hope so.

I've gone short and I'm looking for the huge downturn.

What have you done to make money from this?

It's going to take some other event to crash the market...
those who know are looking for a downturn but not a crash.... at least not near future....

Could see a big fall off if the jobs report due on Friday is worse than expected... but the government is good about showing better numbers when it matters then amending those later when its a foot note and not a headline...

The thing to watch is the FDIC has been holding back on closing banks... it pretty well expected the total number of failed banks should be around 1,100 by the start of 2011 (We have one tenth of that now)... for that to happen the FDIC is going to have to accelerate the rate of closures in 2010.. Now that might crash the markets
