  • Greedometer Reaches Level Only Seen Before Stock Market Crash 2 comments
    Jan 17, 2013 11:38 AM

    The strategic Greedometer has risen to a level that has always preceded a U.S. stock market crash (since year 2000).

    The same is true for the tactical Greedometer (unless there's a significant drop today or tomorrow - these algorithms are based on weekly data).

    The trend in successive Greedometer sequences has been for the amount of time to be steadily reduced from the point where the Greedometer sequences initiate to the point where the S&P500 peaks, rolls over, then begins the first leg down of a crash. Start the clock, because the Greedometer sequences started last week. Granted, every previous crash has been stopped by fiscal and monetary steroids. Perhaps this one will as well. But if something can't continue forever, it won't.

    If you did not read the blog posting from last week, you really must. It puts into context the procession of stock market crashes that have been truncated at different points in their melt-down since year 2000. The article asserts that after seeing 6 Greedometer sequences over the previous 13 years, we are about to see another one, and that the odds are building it will be the grand finale because the measures used to stop previous crashes have either been used up, taken off the table, or are already deployed (and therefore already baked-in to the current Greedometer sequence). Here is a link to the article.

    I really enjoyed your book and agreed with a good portion of it and will read your new one coming out in Febuary. I like your boldness in predicting inside a month (actually weeks) of when you think the correction will occur. Let's see if you are right, i ahve a few shorts hoping you are.
