Shiller Warns Against Complacency: “Today’s Market Looks Like It Did At The Peaks Before Last 13 Bear Markets”

Shiller Warns Against Complacency: “Today’s Market Looks Like It Did At The Peaks Before Last 13 Bear Markets”:

The US stock market today looks a lot like it did at the peak before all 13 previous price collapses. That doesn’t mean that a bear market is imminent, but it does amount to a stark warning against complacency.”

Finally the Contrarian Warning from Small Investors

Finally the Contrarian Warning from Small Investors:

They did the same in January 2000 just before the dot.com crash.

For years, individual investors in the US have been a dreary bunch, as stocks soared relentlessly since bottoming out in 2009. But 18 months ago, in February 2016, they finally caught the bug, and now optimism has surged at a record pace. Optimism about the stock market in particular has reached the record highs established during the Dot.com bubble, just before it all fell apart.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Looks like time to jump in and buy stocks then….YAY!!!”

Yes, the best time to buy is when the small investors are BTFATH (Buy The Fucking All Time High)!!!

And what could possibly go wrong?

“Get Totally Out Of Stocks” – Charles Nenner Warns “US Social Unrest Is Bigger Problem Than North Korea”

In this extensive interview with USAWatchdog.com’s Greg Hunter, Charles Nenner, renowned financial and geopolitical analyst, has been saying for a few years that “there would be no market crash until the end of 2017,” and “if people were not positioned correctly, they could lose everything.”

It’s nearing the end of 2017, and Nenner says, “I think we are there already. . . . We, personally, are totally out of stocks at this point.”

So, where is Nenner telling people to stash their cash?

Lord Rothschild: “Share Prices Are At Unprecedented Levels, This Is Not A Time To Add Risk”

Lord Rothschild: “Share Prices Are At Unprecedented Levels, This Is Not A Time To Add Risk”:

We do not believe this is an appropriate time to add to risk. Share prices have in many cases risen to unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is by no means assured. Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving increasingly difficult to resolve.” – Lord Jacob Rothschild

The Dow Falls 274 Points As ‘Eclipse Fever’ Hits The Financial Markets

FYI.

–  The Dow Falls 274 Points As ‘Eclipse Fever’ Hits The Financial Markets:

Have we now entered a time of major financial shaking?  On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 274 points.  The was the largest decline for the Dow since May, and high yield bonds were down dramatically as well.  Many are blaming the terror attack in Barcelona and “instability in the White House” for the downturn, but could “eclipse fever” also be a factor?  The closer that we get to the solar eclipse on August 21st, the weirder people seem to be getting.  You will see what I am talking about below.

But first let’s talk about the financial markets.  I have been warning that stocks are massively overvalued for quite a while now, and it turns out that the Federal Reserve very much agrees with me

“It Won’t Be Long Now” – David Stockman Warns “Amazon Is The New Tech Crash”

“It Won’t Be Long Now” – David Stockman Warns “Amazon Is The New Tech Crash”:

The Amazon business model is fatally flawed. It’s only a matter of the precise catalyst that will trigger the realization in the casino that this is another case of the proverbial naked emperor… I do not think AMZN is a freakish outlier. It’s actually the lens through which the entire stock market should be viewed because the whole enchilada is now in the grips of a pure mania.”

Trump Tweets Dow 22,000 Today: Embraces Big, Fat, Ugly Bubble

Change we can believe in!

Oh, wait… it’s now called: Make America great again!

Trump Tweets Dow 22,000 Today: Embraces Big, Fat, Ugly Bubble:

Having dismissed the “big, fat, ugly bubble” during his campaign, President Trump seems more than willing – in his apparently desperate search for a win – to embrace the bubble now. Continuing the trend over the weekend, Trump’s first tweet of the morning crows of his massive market gains since election…

Stock Market could hit all-time high (again) 22,000 today. Was 18,000 only 6 months ago on Election Day. Mainstream media seldom mentions!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 1, 2017

We tend to agree with Peter Schiff on this – it’s a mistake for Trump to ‘own’ the stock market’s gains

Schwab: “New Accounts Are At Levels We Have Not Seen Since The Dot Com Bubble” As Millennials Rush Into Stocks

Schwab: “New Accounts Are At Levels We Have Not Seen Since The Dot Com Bubble” As Millennials Rush Into Stocks:

 We can now officially close the book on the “cash on the sidelines.”

One week ago, we reported that in the latest weekly survey of Bank of America high net worth clients, the cash allocation had fallen to an all time low of just 10.4%, below the previous record low of 11% in April 2007 as everyone is “forced” to dance in this market, in which the music is still playing.

Now, in a separate confirmation of what Deutsche Bank recently classified as market “froth”, Jonathan Tepper points out that the stock euphoria has finally spread to the retail investor.

A Mystery Investor Has Made A 262 Million Dollar Bet That The Stock Market Will Crash By October

A Mystery Investor Has Made A 262 Million Dollar Bet That The Stock Market Will Crash By October:

One mystery trader has made an extremely large bet that the stock market is going to crash by October, and if he is right he could potentially make up to 262 million dollars on the deal.  Fortunes were made and lost during the great financial crisis of 2008, and the same thing will happen again the next time we see a major stock market crash.  But will that stock market crash take place before 2017 is over?  Without a doubt, we are in the midst of one of the largest stock market bubbles in U.S. history, and many prominent investors are loudly warning of an imminent stock market collapse.  It doesn’t take a genius to see that this stock market bubble is going to end very badly just like all of the other stock market bubbles throughout history have, but if you could know the precise timing that it will end you could set yourself up financially for the rest of your life.

I want to be very clear about the fact that I do not know what will or will not happen by the end of October.  But one mystery investor is extremely convinced that market volatility is going to increase over the next few months, and if he is correct he will make an astounding amount of money.  According to Business Insider, the following is how the trade was set up…
