Again, we need this to happen sooner rather than later. It's not as if we can avoid it happening and the longer we wait, the less chances that we will be able to recover with freedom in mind.

The real Hindenburg airship lost altitude slowly as the flames devoured the overhead support. Many of the casualties waited till the passenger cabin made landfall before exiting including the captain and they later died from the horrible burns. This event took place in 1937 before the US took sides in WW2.
Is there any special reason why this market signal named after the Hindenburg disaster? They could have named it after any of a plethora of historical harbingers or disasters. Is there a possible conspiracy here?

Analyst sells all his stocks as market-crash indicator resurfaces Friday It's time to "get into the storm cellar" with some gold for protection. The creator of the "Hindenburg Omen" theory says that dreaded sign of an impending stock crash occurred again on Friday, Aug. 20. According to Barron's:
"James Miekka, a blind oracle credited as the author of the Hindenburg Omen, a predictor of stock-market crashes that has been getting a lot of buzz, sold his stock positions last week.
"The Omen was triggered Aug. 12, when new 52-week highs and lows exceeded 2.5% of issues traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the 50-day moving average rose and three other factors confirmed a confused market. It happened again on Friday, he says.
"There's quibbling over the exact criteria, especially considering new fixed-income products masked as equities, but Miekka is confident that the latest triggers are like spotting a funnel cloud. After all, Omens preceded the 1987 crash and the 2008 bear market, as well as other downturns.
"Miekka didn't sell all his stock two years ago, but this time, weighing historical September slides, negative options signals and journalist inquiries, he opted to 'get into the storm cellar' until the fall. 'I'm battening down the hatches,' Miekka tells Barron's."
