To summarize the "logic" in the prior post: Wall Street collectively doesn't believe that a crash can happen therefore they over-leverage themselves to GUARANTEE it does happen. It's called conflict-of-someone-else's-money.

Remember to act surprised when it happens...

The Nasdaq

The dollar is imploding

Iron ore was limit down overnight



U.S. Oil ETF


Junk bonds

Market breadth

In other words, ahead of Sunday's election, Europe is the new global "safe haven"

What could go wrong?
