Getting Ready for the Big One: February 2014

Getting ready for Christmas? What’s Santa got in his sack for you this year? Well, if there’s one thing you should be preparing for, then it can only be the big crash of February 2014. The signs have been there for months now and it’s definitely now on the books for February next year. Santa will be emptying his sack and it won’t be presents that will be falling from the sky as his sleigh goes whizzing past us.

Preordained Events

Stick the date in your diary, pop it on your iPad and synch it with your iPhone. Use them while you can, because they will be relics of the past most undoubtedly in the coming months. You won’t be needing anything in the future, once the financial world implodes and it is set to happen in February 2014.

If we were in 1929, this would be June 1929, just a few months before the crash happened back then. Yes, we can say whatever we like with numbers, but like cameras, there are some calculations that never seem to lie.Businesssweek’s Tom DeMark, a financial analyst has put together indicators that are able to predict movements of the market with surprising accuracy. DeMark states that “the market’s going to have one more rally, then once we get above that high, I think it’s going to be treacherous. I think it’s all preordained right now”.

Some might be saying that we didn’t need a crystal ball and we had no need for mathematics either to show that. You just had to look at how the Federal Reserve has bounced the financial markets back into a false-sense of security without actually doing anything at all to change the economy. Where’s the employment, where’s the increase in industry? It’s in the past. The only thing that is there right now is the virtual prosperity of the financiers and the banks. The next US shutdown and arrival at the debt ceiling will be just in time too for the biggest crash in history and will probably be linked.

Cash in on the last rise of the financial markets before what has been set down long ago comes of age and ripens completely. After that, who knows! You’ll have to buy low and wait a long time before the markets move back up.

The chart that compares pre-1929 and today is uncannily identical. Take a look for yourself. Pooh-pooh it, refuse to see it, do whatever you wish, but the crash will be coming and it’s the banks that started it all. The government will finish it all. God bless America! Game over! Goodnight!

DeMark's Market Predictions

It’s something when you end up witnessing the downfall of your own country. Some have been predicting it for years now and have been shouted down. They will be consoled by ‘I-told-you-so’ vociferating. But, it’s doubtless if that will help them anymore than anyone else.

The number of companies that is pushing the stock markets higher is narrowing at an alarming rate and there are a handful today that are taking the markets higher. That handful will gradually reduce and collapse. The eggs that were put into one basket by Ben Bernanke will end up being splattered on Janet Yellen’s face as she takes over. She should get out now while she can! The few companies that are dragging the financial market up by the collar are distorting the perception of the rest of the companies there and so speculation is becoming greater and greater.

January will see the bull rush on the financial markets for the last time. Then things will fall dramatically. You’ve been warned.

Yet again, those that believe they know will turn their noses up and say it’s never going to happen. Granted, the markets are unpredictable. But, there is one thing we all have to agree on, they are buoyant on nothing right now. They are increasing without any reason to do so. That won’t last at all.

January is named after the ancient Roman mythological God Janus. He’s the god of beginnings and transitions, changes and endings or new beginnings. This year Janus, the gateway god, will be looking back into the past to 1929, stopping off on the way at the financial crisis of 2007/2008. But, he isn’t two-faced for nothing.

He’ll be looking into the future and pin-pointing February as the time you’ll need to take cover. Forget the financial crisis of yesteryear or yester-century. This one will be the biggest, the best, the most of everything you could imagine.

The Americans always did excel in verbose language and hyperbole. They always did excel at showing the world that they were the top of the roost and the best at whatever they did. As the last beats of Auld Lange Syne play out, ringing in your ears, the Americans will be surely remembered as those that started it all. Well done the Federal Reserve; well done the successive governments.

Above all, well done the banksters, the gangsters of the financial world. Let’s remember the old acquaintances… Shid ald akwentans bee firgot, an nivir brocht ti mynd?

Hey, listen Steve Suggerud says we're good til 2015...

on another note, I witnessed from the hill of my 12 acre farmette a crazy pilot running chemtrails in southern Maine skies. They must be lured into the immoral act by good money and the chance to be a cowboy. He would make a hairpin turn and just "put the corn to 'ah", you know give it the throttle. Zig-zags all across the sky, becoming hazy clouds.

Must be a grain of truth to this as I'm seeing names here that don't regularly show up?...  That said.

I think the best indicator of all will be another 9/11 style event only of much more epic proportions if the bought and paid for Harpyies (Feinstein, Rogers, Graham and McCain) are correct and have been prognosticating since this summer.

These guys need an "exit" before the biggest shit ever hits the fan on the markets! 

Keep watching the number of private flight(s) out of JFK, IAD and DCA for the usual suspects looking to take an untimely late winter vacation if this turns out to be true as the precursor.

Wow, how dumb is this guy?? You'll find that Tom DeMark made the last rally comment on October 15th... So there won't be a January rally.

However, the world has recovered from stock corrections before and will again.

Pivot Farm is an idiot....and his articles are only 'shills' to keep his webpage advertised. 

The world economy is clearly out-of-control....but people have been predicting "THE CRASH" after every New Year, for several years now.....and they've been wrong.   

YES, eventually things have to reach cricial mass, but it may well be a long, slow, continous slip into the swamp rather than one spectacular crash.    

As for the "Predictor Wizards".... if you predict a massive hurricane every single day for years....evenutally you will get one.    (that doesn't mean their predictive skills are worth anything)

If you're looking for the 1929 vs. now chart it's here:

(Link opens in new window/tab.)

Looking at the chart it appears the big crash would be late December '13 or early January '14, or am I missing something?

I like those then/now charts, as we have the profligacy and rampant corruption as then, just on a bigger scale.

It's televised now, and on the Interwebs, and we have EBT instead of soup lines.

Bold prediction none-the-less, what with Janet "Double Barrel" Yellen coming in at the FED.

This article is bullshit.  Not that a Crash is NOT going to happen.  It IS inevitable.  But not Feb. 2014.  And putting up charts showing the matching nature of the run up in stock prices between 2012 until now with the run up of stock prices in 1928-through the Crash of '29 is also bullshit.

This is what they DID NOT have in 1929.  They didn't have an ENTIRE government/economist/Fed banker cabal willing to print money and take bad loans off banks' books to paper over the 1929-1939 style Depression or worse that we should have already been well into.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  I'm not expert.....this is just a bit of data driven and intuitive guess....but I say the Insane Fed/Corp/Banker Posse can keep the bubble inflated until around 2020 and THEN with the combined incoming crests of these tsunamis......Peak Cheap Energy, Peak Cheap Credit, Peak Student Loans, another Peak Real Estate Bubble, Peak Medicaid, Peak Medicare, Peak VA benefits, Peak Social Security, Peak Old Farts dying off and/or leaving the workforce, Peak Disability, Peak Food Stamps, Peak Illegal (now made legal through amnesty) Immigration, Peak Cheap Labor Wage Arbitrage, Peak Interest on National Debt, and most of all......Peak Fed/Corp. corruption........THEN you will see the collapse.

However.....throw in a credit default swap or even currency crisis when the sheeple wake up BEFORE 2020 and figure out that their dollars in their wallets and 401K are better used as toilet paper.....especially when toilet paper is 15 dollars a roll and running out fast.......then all bets are off.

But 2020 is when we start getting hit by wave after Grand Cycle / Generational wave of tsunamis that even the Skittle Shitting Unicorns they keep breeding at the Federal Reserve can't handle.

As with all crashes, it will take some "black swan" event to trigger it. Given that the global economy is so interconnected it could come from anywhere at any time. No one can put an exact date on it.

The crash is inevitable, but the Global Banking Cartel will determine exactly when to pull the pin on the grenade.  Though I never thought that they could pull off this "new normal" for almost 5 years, I now can't believe they can or will do it for another 6 or 7.  What tools are left on the table.  A new, improved "stimulus package?"  Negative interest rates?  A non-starter.  Increasing QEinf ?  The chairsatan's $85B per month is losing its effectiveness.  Are they going to try to double down again to $170B  a month?  I agree with the OP that we are reaching the end of the road.  The signs are all around us.  I view the political signs as the most telling.  Killing children in psy-ops in a desperate, so far failing, attempt at a gun grab of the citizenry.  Miitarizing the police and sheriffs with tanks, 2 billion hollow point pistol rounds, the Dept. of Human Sacrifice's TSA on interstate highways in Kansas.  The Global Banking Cartel planned this decades ago.  If you believe that the prime directives of the Fed are low unemployment and inflation, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to offer at a real good price.

The crash must be deflationary.  I agree with Mike Maloney that we will see a period of hyperdeflation immediately after the derivatives implode which will turn into hyperinflation with the global central banks still manipulating the levers and chutes.  They must destroy national currencies to install a global digital currency, the mark of the beast implanted in your forearm.  It's difficult to judge how long the hyperdeflationary phase will last.  Could be months or a couple of years.

I don't think we have that much time, Jumbo. BRICS will fall on our heads well before that when the dollar is dropped from reserve currency status. In fact, my guess is that if you follow the Crimex and LMBA physical, the Chinese should be done draining our gold out of the West by some time next year.

Then China dumps what's left of their treasuries to get PMs ripping to the upside. Let's see, 4000 tons of gold from the west times $8,500 per ounce = about what China holds in US reserves! Bam! China made whole in one move! This is more likely going to happen within a year or two. My .02.

If you want to argue semantics here "the crash to end all crashes" happened in earnest right before those towers fell and when we heard about millions of shares of United stock being sold en masse for no apparent reason -well after it took place and the damage done!

my sentiment, too

LOL - funny to read "The Americans always did excel in verbose language and hyperbole" preceded by "He’ll be looking into the future and pin-pointing February as the time you’ll need to take cover. Forget the financial crisis of yesteryear or yester-century. This one will be the biggest, the best, the most of everything you could imagine."


Anyway, OT: something that got underreported, imho:

The Gulf States (GCC), including Saudi Arabia, are going forward with their scheme of a common (Arab) currency

yes. if you live in the AngloSphere, by now you have to be convinced that the EUR was the worst idea of two centuries, yet several currently USD-pegged Arab nations currencies will probably merge, soon

which of course poses the question: why? not for keeping the peg at all costs and forever, for example

of course, I'm the first to admit that there are further valid reasons to share a currency, size being the first of them


here some interesting tidbits on it from the British Telegraph, the greatest online enemy of the EUR:

"Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar are to launch the first phase next year, creating a Gulf Monetary Council that will evolve quickly into a full-fledged central bank.

The Gulf states remain divided over the wisdom of anchoring their economies to the US dollar.

The Gulf currency – dubbed “Gulfo” – is likely to track a global exchange basket and may ultimately float as a regional reserve currency in its own right.

“The US dollar has failed. We need to delink,” said Nahed Taher, chief executive of Bahrain’s Gulf One Investment Bank."

The "Gulfo" will supposedly be pegged to the dollar, for some reason.

That Telegraph article is from 2009.  Last I heard, the comon Arab currency idea was still awaiting a critical mass of political support from the Gulf States.  Did you have any recent news on that front?  This is the last I heard on the subject (10/27/13):



The Sultanate has already asked to be ruled out in the planned single currency the GCC nations have been considering to form. The idea has not yet been implemented. The idea was to stabilise trade with their international partners without having to worry about the volatility of the US currency. But Oman can follow the example of both Kuwait and Singapore who are now pegging their currencies to an international basket.

in my last "tour" of the Middle East I was confronted with several discussions on the matter, as you see in the ME it is being reported on a bit

my understanding so far is that Oman is on the brink of saying a definite yes or no (inofficially, they are still undecided and officially they won't, ever) and the rest is going to forge on, regardless

perhaps I should not have used that dated Telegraph article (my fault), but I could not resist. it's my pet hate newsy. thanks for the other link

And it did not have to be this way. Instead of printing themselves into a corner the Fed most certainly had other options. But then the Fed take orders from their money masters. That old saying " don't fight the Fed " should really become , how the fuck are they going to fix the Fed .
