BNN Interview

Here’s the link to the BNN interview this morning. here Unfortunately they created their own charts from mine and left some things out. This chart is important:        

Margin Debt obliterates pre-crash 2007 leverage

An hour ago, the NYSE released the margin debt usage for January (yup, they’re not fast). Corrected for the M1-money supply growth, a new all-time high was seen in January. Another new record will be set in February as well.   The chart speaks for itself. Oh, and by the way, ECRI’s WLI was released 30min ago. It shows the economy beginning to stall […] Read the rest of this entry »

Get Shorty

It’s not every day that one has the opportunity to do a live interview from the NASDAQ and proclaim we are within days (or perhaps hours) of the next stock market crash initiating. The irony of doing so from this location is all the more sweet. I am short the S&P500 via the inverse ETF ->SDS. Today that short position will be increased to […] Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t be greedy

  I know there are a bunch of folks following this blog that are interested in profiting from a stock market collapse.  But I caution: don’t be greedy. It is my objective to see my clients through an epic stock market collapse and post a 5-10% gain along the way while doing it with a pile of spare cash (sitting, earning virtually nothing). And a […] Read the rest of this entry »

Greedometer Newsletter posted

The latest issue was uploaded a few minutes ago. Among other things:   There remains a Special Offer to view this week’s newsletter and those back to Jan 28th — for $10.  here    

Secular Market Top. Crash initiates next week.

  They say no one rings a bell at a stock market top (before it crashes).  Consider the Greedometer to be ringing the proverbial bell.  Per previous comments, the SPX had to re-test 1850 within 1%.  Done.  The mini Greedometer took it a step further indicating the SPX would set a new secular peak last week, this week, or both.  With the SPX setting […] Read the rest of this entry »

Read This! A note to everyone not a newsletter subscriber

Hello. I regularly receive emails and blog post comments that point out previous times where the Greedometer called for a crash to happen, yet here we are and the market is much higher. Because you are not a paid newsletter subscriber, you have not been receiving the weekly letters showing the sequences unfold, and where the sequences have been truncated.  Perhaps I’ll have to […] Read the rest of this entry »

You are programmed to fail

I thought I’d write something different. This article walks through the 2007-2009 period and provides commentary from a fictional retail investor. See how much of this sounds familiar to you…. First, here’s where we’re going:   Off we go….   Hey, we’re off to a good start this year. Great!   They say we should “buy the dips”, so buy I will. (what you […] Read the rest of this entry »

Videos applying Greedometers to the 2011 crash

Two videos have been added to the website applying the Greedometers to the early-truncated crash of 2011.  You will find the page under the Videos tab. or click here: https://www.greedometer.com/videos/greedometers-2011-crash/ In the coming weeks, there will be a video applying the Greedometers to the data in late 2013 and early 2014. This will provide a clear forecast for the crash about to initiate.    

Crash initiation does not need obvious catalyst

I am frequently asked what the catalyst for a crash might be. The answer is — it does not matter. Once sufficiently high amounts of risk are apparent, the slightest shock will initiate the crash. Whatever happens to “disappoint” will be given the blame. Take a look back at August 2000, October 2007, April 2010, July 2011, May 2012, October 2012, May 2013, and […] Read the rest of this entry »
