    Wondering give the following it did not fal moew


    -- World wide debt 200 Year high
    -- Corporate debt Highest ever, 12.5T in US alone. Was 6.5T in 2007
    -- Fed Balance Sheet 4.2T, year end 5.2T wondering how this is going to unfold, kind of put them self into a corner.
    -- Margin Debt in US stock market close to 500B higest ever.
    -- Federal Govt Debt 17.4T and Growing Year, end will be 18.5T. Exclude Muni, state and other debt
    -- US stocks PE CAPE > 25 which 3rd Highest in last 100 Years.
    -- Emerging markets growth has slowed down quite a bit and is not that improving much. Check China(Appears to be in trouble), Brazil, India, Turkey etc.
    -- So many negatives and still they are herding people into the riskest assets stocks.
    -- Companies are issuing debt to buy back shares and pay div's not from business growth.


    People need to get out and move to cash and money mkt funds, this hard earned money wait for the Mkts to correct and revert to reason valuations. DO not short the market because the big boys will squeeze you with kind of liquidity provided by the feds and leverage they have.
