5 "Tells" that the Stock Markets Are About to Reverse

1930's Depression Bear Market a Plausable Reality for Todays Stock Market

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHalf Empty circa 1930
In similar fashion to the present wisdom held by the majority of professionals, it is with certainty that the majority of those embedded in the ’29 quagmire viewed their 48% V-shape rally in the Dow as the start of a full economic recovery, an end to the crisis, and a sure sign of a permanent return to prosperity.


As the record clearly shows, their optimistic perceptions could not have been more wrong.  Although we are not predicting a repeat or rhyme of this diabolic sequence of devastating events, we wish simply to bring to readers’ attention the very real plausibility of such an outcome.

Was our modern day 54.4% 18-month crash in the Dow simply an overdone anticipation of Armageddon, or was it an initial warning shot across the bow as was the case in 1929?

In our view, the Dow’s March low of 6469 could easily have been “in early stage process” of pricing in Armageddon rather than “overshooting” to the downside providing what many are touting as an extreme “under-valuation” long-term buying opportunity. 

The largest financial coup in the history of humankind
What stopped the road to ruin?  It was yet another epic financial coup engineered by none other than the Fed and Treasury affecting every means necessary to rescue an irreparably insolvent system. 

With the unique benefit of monopoly over the worlds reserve “make-believe” currency, without limit or immediate consequence, the Fed and Treasury reflexively trounced the constitution, changed rules, and threw as much of their monopoly money at their global banking and wall street buddies as was necessary in order to effect yet another “do-over” for the status quo elites. 

If Bernie couldn’t do it, Let’s try Ben ... Let’s go Ben ... Let’s go Ben... 
Only time will tell if the world will buy into this diabolical scheme in the same way that feeder funds and astute investors bought into Bernie Madoff’s version of reality.

In the five months following our modern-day March low, the Dow has rallied 48.84% to its intraday August 28 high of 9630, which is eerily similar to the percentage gained off the 1929 low. 

Shy of the 1930 retracement, the modern-day rally into August retraced only 40.88% of its entire decline.  Should we match the 52.26% retracement achieved in the V-spike from 1930, the Dow could trade as high as 10,500 and still risk total collapse. 

What might that look like, and what may follow such a plausible reality?  The chart below ponders one such path that the Dow may take in event such dire conditions impose themselves on the masses.

A thirteen-year “M” shaped recovery
The above chart pattern illustrates a five-wave 13-year secular bear market triangle consisting of waves “A” through “E” at cycle degree.  The massive cyclical bull and bear markets strewn over the course of the next ten years might form what may come to be known as the long and torturous “M” shaped recovery. 

Are you prepared to invest or trade such an environment, or perhaps one that entails a hyperinflationary run up to fresh all-time highs?  Rest assured that we are, so join us in our ongoing quest to journal, forecast, and trade the greatest events in financial history.

1930's Depression Bear Market a Plausable Reality for Todays Stock Market

When the Dow crashed to 1962 in 1932 the dollar was backed by gold. Now that it isn't, maybe the Dow will crash in a similar fashion but only in relation to the gold price. i.e.the Dow might stay at the same kind of level nominally and the gold price explode as opposed to the Dow decreasing
