Stocks Got Trumped then Dumped then Rose Again Like Phoenix Rose for the Dems out of Republican Ashes

Election night and the day that followed became one more exhibition of irrational exuberance in the stock market and an omen of chaos to come. Early on election night in the US, stock futures soared as soon as it looked to many investors like Donald Trump would have a clear claim to a second term […]

Halloween Madness Tears Stock Market to Shreds

Investors will start to realize the economy is not recovering in August, I said. As result, the stock market will break sometime in August or September, I said. It will likely experience an even bigger plunge as an October surprise, I said, because something about October loves a Halloweenish surprise for stocks.

Today’s October Surprise Even Threw Crazy Cramer off a Cliff!

After saying the stock market’s rally today could best be explained by “the removal of uncertainty,” Jim Cramer got a hyuuge surprise out of a corner from which he least expected it. The surprise that moved the market was not, however, removal of the particular uncertainty that Cramer was talking about. It was removal of […]

Tick, Tock Stock Drop

Since I’ve spent a fair amount of time on the US stock market of late, I won’t say much. Just taking a moment to note September just finished its fourth consecutive week down (final full week), maintaining a downtrend that began as we rolled over from August into September, setting up an October surprise.

The Path by Which We Got Here

It wasn’t just COVID that got us down the road to ruin. Because many think we are in what looks like a post-apocalyptic world of rubble only because of COVID or because of Trump, I decided now would be a good time to summarize how predictably the Fed’s Great Recovery and Great Rewind got us […]

Stocks are Falling into Fall

All three major stock-market indices completed three consecutive weeks of falling today as we head into fall next week. The NASDAQ, as you see in the opening graph, has set up a clear trend of perfectly aligned closings this week.

Technically, This is Where I Think the S&P Will Find Strong Support and a Final Resting Place

This graph shows where my mind goes every time I ask myself how far the S&P 500 is likely to fall before it finds a solid bottom. As you know, I don’t make predictions based on charts, but clearly there is intense convergence of longterm support around the 2,000 level and strong indication of a […]

Bullheaded Dave Portnoy Gets Pounded with His Own Hammer

Dave Portnoy is shaking his fist at the stock market, daring it to give him a bigger pounding than it already has — telling his gambling fans how the $700 million he lost on Thursday, and the four-million he’s lost “in a f—ing blink” over the week is just a flesh wound, a mere scratch. […]

Arrival of the Epocalypse and the 2020 Stock Market Meltdowns

I rarely mention anytime I’ve been interviewed. However, I was reviewing a casual conversation I just finished with one of my readers, Bob Unger, and I thought Bob’s questions led to a well-rounded expression of how, over the past two years, our economy got to the collapse we are in now, how predictable the Federal […]

Stock Market’s Caged Bear about to Rattle Himself Loose!

I’ve been saying the stock market will take a turn for the worst sometime between mid-August and October. Numerous market metrics now show a market that looks ready to turn over. The bear may soon be back in charge.

Elliott Wave Theory v. Stock Market Predictions by Economic Sense

Elliott Wave charts are the stock market’s horoscope. Some advocates of Elliott Wave Theory even believe the stock market only collapses due to EW alignments. Even the least faithful Elliott acolytes believe the market is eternally fated to match up over time with the probabilities the charts have revealed.

Denial Dominates the Dummies

One of my reasons I started this website years ago was to counter all the denial that I saw in the mainstream media about how long and deep the problems from the Great Financial Crisis would be and about how we were failing in every way to resolve the greed, decay and especially faulty thinking […]

US in Longterm Economic Decline

Measured by the common man (or common girl), we’re on the road to ruin. The US has been in decline for decades, but you can’t see that by looking at stocks. You can’t tell it from those who lie about the economy to make their living, but look at longterm real numbers, and you see […]
