Bernanke Has Created the Mother of ALL Stock Market Bubbles – Here’s Why

 

Ben Bernanke has created the mother of all bubbles. Today, the S&P 500 is sitting abubbles full 30% above its 200-weekly moving average. We all know how bubbles end: BADLY, and this time will be no different. This is not doom and gloom, this is a fact. The Fed has created an even bigger bubble than the 2007 one!

So writes Graham Summers (http://gainspainscapital.com/) in edited excerpts from his latest free daily market commentary newsletter entitled An Epic Market Meltdown is Coming… Are You Prepared?

Summers goes on to say in further edited excerpts:

We have NEVER been this overextended above this line at any point in the last 20 years. Indeed, if you compare where the S&P 500 is relative to this line, we’re even MORE overbought that we were going into the 2007 peak at the top of the housing bubble.
The last time a major bubble of these proportions burst, we fell to break through this line in a matter of weeks and then plunged into one of the worst market crashes of all time. By today’s metrics, this would mean the S&P 500 falling to 1,300 then eventually plummeting to new lows.

Conclusion

The time to prepare for this is not once the collapse begins, but NOW, while stocks are still rallying. Stocks take their time moving up, but when they crash it happens VERY quickly.
