Bulls Set To Be Tasered Again By Severe Downleg – Clive Maund 09-06-15

Salient to Investors:

In a bear market poised to plunge again. Markets drop twice as fast as they rise because fear is a stronger emotion than greed.

Bearish technicals:

  • First bearish moving average cross for 4 years
  • Volume on the recent plunge was the heaviest for 4 years

Bearish fundamentals:

  • Global debt saturation and sovereign debt crisis in Europe
  • Insoluble debt crisis in an aging Japan
  • Ballooning US deficits
  • Bursting debt bubble in China
  • Collapsed commodity markets
  • Collapsing Emerging Markets
  • Record margin debt
  • Huge derivatives pyramid
  • A world in denial
