Is The Stock Market Near Collapse?

Is the Stock Market Ready to Collapse?


13:56-18:26 discussion of the tenuous position of the stock market with sky high valuations and no underlying fundamentals to support them.

The stock market could do down on a moment’s notice and stay down because the companies are not doing that well and will do worse after a stock market crash, so a swift rebound may not happen even if the Fed attempts to reflate. The Fed appears to be trying to talk down the market a little perhaps to avoid a larger correction or crash.

It's high for one reason: Interest rates. As soon as the FED...

...starts raising rates the market will drop - but it will drop consistent with the percent they raise the rates.

That's bacause when rates go higher, investors opt for safer places to put their money.

Right now, with rates near zero, people have no choice but to invest in equities. It's not because the WANT to do it as it is very risky.

It's near a correction, but not a collapse.

Once complacency shakes out of the market, it's up, up, up. Capital flow seeking safety and returns will be the driving force.

If you think so, yes...it is near collapse.

If you think no, no...it is not near collapse.

The stock market is an

The stock market is an illusion and lives under the threat of people waking up, so yes it is perpetually near collapse at all times.

Didn't it drop a whole bunch the other day when that malaysian plane was shot down? What does that plane going down have to do with the stock price of rice in China?

It dropped then went right back up

I suspect traders know the Fed will backstop any drop. I think the next drop the Fed will not be able to support a rebound with out totally destroying the dollar

Not sure.

I have never cared to fathom the depths of this thing called the stock market. Are you familiar with "The parable of the mustard seed". The good seed and the weeds must grow together until the end, and at the appointed time the weeds will be gathered and burned. I suppose the truth will apply across the board, whether it be business or the human condition.

Never heard that one- will make note of it

The analogy doesn't hold for the stock as it's almost all weeds!
