Bob Prechter Warns Market Correction "Larger Than The Malaise Of The '30s" Looms

"Because people do not perceive their moods, tops and bottoms in markets sneak right past them.

Myopic Markets & The Looming Mall REITs Massacre

While markets are myopically co-moving to the siren songs of Fed hawks and doves, deteriorating fundamentals are becoming harder to ignore.
