Maybe Albert’s Crazy Forecast Is Not That Crazy After All





"Albert Edwards sees the possibility of a 75% decline from the peak if all his fears were to manifest themselves.

These types of declines would leave indices down rough 60-65% from peak, and would send leverage ratios skyrocketing."

"If one is looking for key technical indicators to ring the bell on the cyclical bull market- maybe it has just rung loud and clear. A renminbi devaluation will only sever an already badly frayed safety rope..."

Citi On Why Negative Rates Are Like Potato Chips: "No One Can Have Just One"





"Experience in other countries that have entered into this territory should sober you up on the likely economic and inflation impact. No country that has gone into negative rates has experienced major shifts in its growth and inflation profile – minor, yes; major, no. As a consequence every dip into negative rates has been followed by additional moves."

"Fundamentals Don't Matter Right Now, It's Panic On The Way Down," Trader Warns





We’re experiencing wealth-destruction due to asset-price dynamics alone. The negative moves will stop only when excess leverage is trimmed and not just when prices return to “fair value.”

Albert Edwards Hits Peak Pessimism: "S&P Will Fall 75%", Global Recession Looms





"To bottom on a Shiller PE of 7x would see the S&P falling to around 550. I will repeat that: If I am right, the S&P would fall to 550, a 75% decline from the recent 2100 peak."

"In Short Janet, It's Too Late" - Albert Edwards Calls It With These Seven Charts





"The party's over and bond investors who always tend to be more sober types, realize this and have headed for the exits whereas equity investors are so intoxicated they haven't realized that the music has stopped. Equity investors are still gyrating around the dance floor - just as in 1999 and 2007...

SocGen Looks At The Devastation Across Markets, Sarcastically Concludes It Is "Time For A US Rate Hike"





"The solution to uncertainty is cheaper valuations. If problems are priced in, investors can afford to look through near terms concerns and focus on the longer term. Worryingly, we have exactly the opposite situation today. Average stock valuations are close to historical highs – so we have lots of risk and little in the way of valuation cushion.... Time for a US rate rise then?"

"They're Converging To Dire Levels!": SocGen's Edwards Delivers Critical Warning On Inflation Expectations





"The collapse in inflation expectations tells us that the market believes the central banks, despite their monetary profligacy, are failing to prevent the western economies from turning Japanese, and thus at risk of repeating their devastating slide into outright deflation in the 1990s."
