Last month, Anti-Media reported that some of the biggest institutions on Wall Street have issued warnings to investors that planet-wide financial markets are nearing a downturn. From an August 22 article by Bloomberg:

“HSBC Holdings Plc, Citigroup Inc. and Morgan Stanley see mounting evidence that global markets are in the last stage of their rallies before a downturn in the business cycle.

“Analysts at the Wall Street behemoths cite signals including the breakdown of long-standing relationships between stocks, bonds and commodities as well as investors ignoring valuation fundamentals and data. It all means stock and credit markets are at risk of a painful drop.”

It appears the fear may be spreading. Citing a new financial survey, Mark DeCambre of MarketWatch reported on Friday that a vast majority of Wall Street executives interviewed think the currently record-setting stock market is about ready to decompress:

“More than 80% of chief financial officers surveyed by accounting firm Deloitte said U.S. stock markets are overvalued, marking the highest level since Deloitte began conducting its quarterly poll about eight years ago.

“The findings underline an increasing sense of dread by market participants that stock valuations have become bloated after the S&P 500 index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite Index have registered repeated records and remain less than a percentage point from fresh records in recent trade.”

Specifically, DeCambre writes, the Dow has hit 42 records thus far in 2017, Nasdaq has hit 49, and the S&P 500 has ended on record highs 37 times.

MarketWatch’s Ciara Linnane also reported on the new survey on Friday. Linanne spoke with the survey’s lead author and managing director of Deloitte’s CFO program, Greg Dickinson, who said one of the most worrisome risks to the market CFOs cited was tension between the United States and North Korea.

Additionally, Linanne writes“the failure of the administration of President Donald Trump to advance agenda items, such as tax reform, trade policy and health care reform provided another layer of uncertainty.”

Despite all these early signs of trouble, the market marches on with euphoria as if the current bull run  one of the longest in history  can go on forever. The average American investor does not appear to be heeding these near-apocalyptic warnings.

    The {petrol} dollar is going to collapse. You can’t print it, out of thin air, mind you, forever!!

    • You don’t have to print petrodollars if you don’t use them. It is the outrageous debt levels and the non-producing loans that will take down the petrodollar when the economy gets soft enough. Get out of debt and buy as much gold and silver as you have disposable income.

  • Deloitte, one of the world’s “big four” accounting firms, has acknowledged a
    breach of its internal email systems, British news outlet The Guardian revealed
    today. Deloitte has sought to downplay the incident, saying it impacted “very
    few” clients. But according to a source close to the investigation, the breach
    dates back to at least the fall of 2016, and involves the compromise of all
    administrator accounts at the company as well as Deloitte’s entire internal
    email system.

    right now we are witnessing weather modification being used to destroy major sections of our coast line. Many home and businesses destroyed, lives lost and personal belongings wasted.
    Chemical spraying in our skies is causing illness in many parts of the nation and sometimes results in death.
    Our food supply is adulterated with weed killer and insecticide that is now part of the plant itself.
    Healthcare providers are injecting toxins into our bodies and we are allowing laes to be passed making it mandatory to poison our children with injections.
    Elites murder those who would expose them and never face even a fine.
    And here are worried about the most manipulated game in town called an economy. The money is controlled by others and printed by others and used to control you and me.Our actions energy and well being are all sacrificed for money we give to others either through spending or trying to live in this fictional world. We have more important things to worry about.
    Let the damn economy die it would be a blessing.

      Indeed. If it takes wiping out the good with the bad at this point in order to create a new system that makes the old one obsolete, so be it.

    I’ve had the internet since 1998 and I’ve been seeing these doom prophecies every year the whole time and there has to be a reason for it. I suspect that most of the doom prophecies are designed to frighten small-time investors into selling their stocks, bonds, and other investments so that the big boys can scoop them up for pennies on the dollar.

    Gonna be a huge sheep BBQ by the Washington DC thirty shekel prostitutes.

    In the great depression the bankers quit making loans thus the money in circulation dropped from $44 per person to $4 per person (every house payment never came back into circulation, the power of the central banking system demonstrated). Therefore the money was worth ten times what it was pre depression. Gold, silver just stayed the same. Your best investment during a depression is dollars. Of course if your house payment was set by pre depression economy, then during the depression, in effect, your house payment went up by a factor of ten times, since it was ten times harder to get a dollar. And everyone lost their houses. (note that property tax took the houses already paid for, imagine your property tax with an extra zero added). Thus the boom bust cycle of the central banking system steadily sapping the wealth of our country.

    When enough people suddenly become worried about financial markets, and they all decide to sell off their share of investments, that’s when the markets will drop and panic will set in. It’s a self fulfilling prophecy.
    Although it obviously cannot continue to hit record highs forever, I don’t believe that it will be the limits of the market itself that dictate when a collapse will occur, but rather the panic of the people worried about losing their investment who suddenly decide to sell off everything, causing the bottom to drop out.
    Regardless of the cause, the end result will be the Banksters winning and the people losing. Every time this happens, the people get more poor, and the rich get more rich. We are playing their game by their rules, and we always end up the losers. And until we demand that this crooked, unwinnable game be brought to an end, we will continue losing until we have nothing left.
