The PPT is the Only Thing Stopping an Outright Crash

The markets have changed and many are going to get “taken to the cleaners.”

Last year, 2017, was a not a normal year for stocks. Stocks as an asset class are not meant to go straight up without even a 1% pullback. But that is precisely what happened for nearly an entire year.

Now that massive market rig is over. And anyone who continues to invest as though it’s 2017 is going to get annihilated in the coming weeks. The only thing that stop an all out crash in stocks was clear and obvious intervention in the markets by Central Banks.

Take Friday’s action for example. The S&P 500 briefly broke its 200-DMA. At that point the Plunge Protection Team stepped in and ramped stocks over 3% in the span of an hour.

PPT in action

This was intervention, plain and simple. NO real investors “panic buy” stocks in this kind of rapid frenzy.

This raises the question…

What would have happened if the PPT had not stepped in? Where would stocks fall to?

Downside target for S&P 500

Buckle up, it's about to get nasty. The PPT can trigger bounces, but it requires REAL buyers for stocks to enter a prolonged rally.

Put another way, we're still going to that circle in the next few weeks.

On that note, we are already preparing our clients for this with a 21-page investment report titled the Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.

In it, we outline the coming collapse will unfold…which investments will perform best… and how to take out “crash” insurance trades that will pay out huge returns during a market collapse.

We’ve extended our offer to download this report FREE due to the market breakdown. But this week is the last time this report will be available to the public.

To pick up one of the last remaining copies…

Money and financial markets have been manipulated since the dawn of the modern age.  The gold and silver standards were the most effective rigging in history -- by keeping PM prices fixed in paper money terms.

The Roman and Chinese empires did the same -- though not with nearly this much sophistication.

The only time money was relatively honest was Middle Ages.  The elites couldn't use money/debt to skim off the cream of economic growth, because there was no growth.

real investors are now part of that plant and animal kingdom that was wiped out in prehistoric times, that now give us Oil.

 

Who cares about this but the decreasing number of bankrupt Shorts, since 2008?

 

If we had ignored your every chicken little assininie prediction, as well as TD's, we would all be basking on Gouveneur Beach in St. Bart's buying up all that cheap beachfront since the Hurricance demolished it.
