Autumn is the season of big market crashes!

Recommended Posts

Here is another zerohedge article that got me to thinking about when big crashes happen, I seemed to remember it was always after the Summer and so I had a look at the S&P and I found the following to add to the article:

 

  • The 1987 Black Monday crash occurred in October
  • The Dotcom bubble crash started in Sept 2000, the second leg in Aug 2001
  • The Credit crunch crash started in Nov 2007 but the big crash phase began in Sept 2008
  • The 2011 correction was in Aug & Sept
  • The 2015 correction, forestalled some say by the Fed and a mysterious buyer of US stocks, was in Aug & Sept

Is that really just coincidence or human nature at work?

Hey 

I can hear the voice of Private Frazer even as I type;

"I tell ye laddie - We're doomed!"

 

On the upside - it's Friday evening and I'm about to head to the pub where all life's miseries will be solved!

(Well, until Monday morning, at least)

 

Have a good weekend,

Mac

The only difference is that Frazer was miserable about it where as I don't feel one way of the other about it so long as I can profit (and protect myself).  Forewarned is forearmed as they say, though it is amazing just how many people prefer the ostrich strategy...

What I should have said was "We're Doomed... Unless you're short!"

    • In the UK, the median age of death from Covid is: - 81 for men - 85 for women (source: Office For National Statistics, 14 Oct 2020) The average life expectancy in the UK is: - 80 for men - 83 for women. (ZUBY:  @ZubyMusic)   If you take away the 95% aged and moribund you are left with just 1 death/million (Ireland), that's some pandemic 🤔 Meanwhile, short vid on mad teachers fear mongering plus some actual scientific facts, how did we get here?  
    • Dow approaching triple top. Through it and higher, or classic triple top reversal?
    • Hi all, On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose? Thanks for your insight
