Not every facet of the economy crashes at the same time, there is always something undervalued, even when other things are bubbling.

Good to know you don't know business cycles and how the FED's interest rates have an effect on the economy. Typical Veeky Forums. Doesn't even know we have a rapid boom and bust economy.

Literally this. This might work with gold and solver or some shit but the next crisis will be about the USD crashing and/or eliminating paper money.

When you lose 20% of your entire portfolio in a day every day 5 days a week - you barely have time to react. You just can't believe it and think the bleeding will stop any second now...next thing you know banks are going under.

People have been calling for the current bull market to crash every day since 2010. That's over two thousand days of wrong predictions.

this is how everything is predicted basically nowadays. broken clock shows right twice etc.

when you don't hold your journalists accountable for the shitposts they make, you're asking for the big crisis.

People have been calling for the current bull market to crash every day since 2010.

This is commonly said but the trouble is, the internet has so many people on it that there is no true consensus opinion.

It's all just noise.

To get a signal, we need some data to find out what the general trend of opinions are.

@Nojokur
Meh. People have been looking at aggregate and consensus data for decades. Metrics like "consumer confidence" and the "fear index" have never proven any more accurate than any other random guesswork.

There are no accurate signals. Every time a new signal is researched, it works great in back-testing but then fails going forward. Five years ago people said an inverse yield curve was the new "gold standard" for predicting market downturns because it worked uncannily to predict the prior four bear markets. And then, boom, we found ourselves in the world of ZIR and the yield curve is basically meaningless. Oh well.

There's no way to reliably predict, let alone capitalize, on short-term market movements. The only winning play is buy-and-hold, and enjoy the ride.

Big data analytics are just getting started.

Economics is not some self guiding chaotic entity, it's the collective outcome of everybody's decisions.

It would be very weird if everybody is expecting a short term stock market downturn and nothing happens. Unless people are selling, they don't really believe it. If they are selling, it's already happening.

The "crash" happened early this year with the oil price slump. The market isn't going to see a -50% retractment like in 2008 for a couple of years now.

Now is the time to BUY you dumb fucks. BUYYYYYYYY.

2017 is going to be HUGE bull run.

You can screencap this post if you like so that you can come back to it a year later to consider seppaku for your mocking this post.

This is false. Computers have been around since the 60's, and supercomputer since the 80's. People have been studying the market since ... forever.

The world did not start when your mommy popped you out of her cootch. We've been at this a long time.
