How long will this bear market last?


Recommended Posts

No one knows thats for sure

But probably two scenarios? (1987 or 1929?)

Big bear, then we are in the first wave down and are in for a pullback (bear market rally) thinking the worst is behind us 

Then the third wave start and would probably chrash the market for a long time (years?)

But lets hope that all the stimulus and free money from the centralbanks can stop the bloodbath and play out like 1987 on dow and 1998 on Dax?

I remember back in 1998 when DAX had a ugly fall, 40% in twelve weeks and some stocks 60-70% (had som stocks back then)

But then it all went straight up and reach a new ATH

So lets hope for the best and be prepared for the worst😊

I hope so, and I thought the umpteen trillions pumped in to the economy was a sign of the bottom (and I lost all my profits in the process) but it makes sense to me now.

If everyday life is shut down to the stupid extent that it is now, a stock market rally makes no sense.  All that 'stimulus' is doing is throwing fuel on to the fire.  The money needed to go directly into the real economy to be effective. 

The stock market won't turn bullish while people can't wipe their dirty buttholes or buy food from the supermarket or go out to enjoy themselves at night.

Bullard’s ballpark estimate is that unemployment could hit 30%, higher than in the Great Depression and three times more than the 2007-2009 recession. Output in the second quarter could be half the norm, a hit of about $2.5 trillion.

A wee while, then?

Dow 2020, 1987,1929

I suppose 99% expect a retest of the low or a new low and thinking of buy the low?

so probably grinding higher and take out some shorts?  a new leg up? (if a three wave bear market rally we have done a and b and now c?)

So my "guess" more upside and suck in some longs before the next leg down?

And then we maybe get a retest of the low and se how much ETFs FED will buy?

From a psychological point of view, the depression seems to be just starting to sink in.  If that view is correct then an eventual recovery (significant and sustained change in psychology) won't come for many months - many people have already written off 2020 (the entire year).

I also believe it will take a big, concerted effort to lift people's spirits again after this.

So really the sensible thing to have done was to go short some time ago, possibly adding shorts on rallies.  Trying to trade in and out on a daily basis just leads to frustration and lost money, as these intra-day consolidations are more or less random noise.

Sounds like a familiar story.

Got called an '@rsehole' for walking too close to an Australian woman on my way from Lidl today.


At times like these people's REAL natures come out.  So f&king glad I didn't marry one of these ***** :D

Charts-wise, I see several waves down - each time stupid f*king idiots (such as me) think a bottom has been reached and lose a lot of money.  But in hindsight they are all just little rallies that got sold into.

Who knows what will happen if the Fed hoovers up all the shares and seriously manipulates the market?  That, and a ban on short selling, would turn the stock market itself into a zombie - a corpse brought back to 'life' by artificial, necromantic methods.

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
