"Run, don't walk," is John Hussman's advice to investors thinking about cutting speculative exposure. The "numerous hostile syndromes" facing equities: "near-panic insider selling, speculation in new issues, and broad divergences in market internals."

    Strange, Hussman is making sense to me today. Maybe I need another cup of coffee.

    The inflation scenario he gives is classic, and true. The real damage comes when the Fed discovers it has little influence left and that GDP has to be repriced upward. Most will not notice that repricing is now in progress, and will swell in the next couple of years.

     

    That is, classical inflation and it is coming soon to a market nearby. Good work.

    Look at Hussman's 1,2,3,4,5,6 year record. Compare it to the S&P 500. Do you still trust hm?

    S+P is heading south will break through 1100 support level end of June when Operation Twist is "wrung out". Market is still too high for FED to provide more stimulus, especially heading into Nov. election. Vix to rise above 35 by then as well!
    Shorts will make a killing!!

    I do not think it is possible to time the market.
