The last thing Wall Street is thinking about is an economic collapse in 2015. After all, the stock markets are at record highs, unemployment is down, and inflation is in check. But the fact of the matter is that these same indicators were also in check before the markets crashed in 1987, 2000, and 2008/09.

Back in 2008/09, everyone on Wall Street, save for Michael Lombardi and Peter Schiff, was absolutely certain that the U.S. economy was the envy of the world and that it was rock solid.

But we all know what happened. And if history is any indicator, it will happen again. By the looks of things, the U.S. could experience an economic collapse in 2015 and slip back into a recession. Or worse.

When it comes to reading economic indicators, Wall Street is famous for looking at the surface. Instead of actually analyzing the data, they just regurgitate what they’re spoon-fed. If you were to take a cursory glance at the state of the U.S. economy, you’d think everything was going according to plan.

First, there are the stock markets. The U.S. markets have been marching steadily higher since bottoming in early 2009. The tech-heavy NASDAQ is up approximately 275% since March 2009, while the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is up 165%. The S&P 500 has climbed more than 200% and in August 2014, it closed above 2,000 for the first time ever. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has climbed 175%.

And the stock market has been amazingly resilient. Even full-blown corrections are short-lived. On September 19, 2014, the U.S. markets started a three-week descent; both the NASDAQ and the NYSE fell by more than 11%, while the S&P 500 gave up more than 10% and the heavyweight Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 9.5%.

It appears that Europe is on the verge of collapsing, most likely after the peak in Martin Armstrong's pi cycle in Oct. 2015, what Armstrong has named 'big bang' is coming, this will be the Sovereign Debt Crisis all thanks to socialist minded politicians borrowing massive amounts of money over the past decades with no intention of ever paying anything back... yes compounding interest is the eighth wonder of the world as Einstein said, but when it working on a national debt it is a nightmare. There is also the danger that if the German Dax peaks in Oct but the US markets keep going up into 2017 then WAR may break out in Europe.

70% of western debts are from compounding interest. Based on Armstrong pi cycle based Economic Confidence Model, each 8.6 year cycle will produce a bigger crisis than the last one until finally in late 2032 the final crisis will come that will bring down the United States leading to total bankruptcy and then most likely a civil war that breaks the country in two.

Well here we are 2015. I am mixed with Armstrong's scenerio that when it breaks it is sovereign debt, particularly municipals to me. Then Paul Craig Roberts legal analysis of obamacare, if their income drops and they no longer qualify for obamacare they are placed into medicare. In medicare the deficit is made up by the states (property tax), the poor pushed into medicare, the ones that lose income, lose big jobs but deplete stored generational labor a while before going into medicare some time later, legally they are liened by medicare for all property, asset, future income. so when it cracks I do imagine armstrong is right that it goes to stocks, eventually after the initial shock. I am imagine a trading rally in Nov per Oct 9 low intervention, then final low in Jan. I am keeping some stocks then in 401k mutuals, a token short fund that wont cover enough to close on Oct 9 temporarily then hit it again around Thanksgiving that might work out by the leverage of timing although it is too small, and cash to buy in Jan. One account is still diversified in alot of small stock positions and these are down a little. I will use some puts on this tomorrow or Thurs. It has just enough cash for puts. Two accounts were virtually emptied and I hope to have some funds to recapitalize big in Jan. To do that I am have to sell some asset, not sure what. Gold if it is working by then, my collector car possibly. Cash cars may come into play in a credit crunch.

Didn't the Mayan Calendar predict the end-of-days around this time? What is it with the amygdala-dominated and the last quarter of the year??? :blink: Here's what to remember - Tomorrow, around 30 million US businesses will open their doors for over 60 million workers to make a living for over 110 million households - the stock market is a big thing, but it ain't that big a thing. :guru:
John Galt shrugged, outsourced to Red China and opened a hedge fund for unregulated securitized credit derivatives.

If the world didn't suck, wouldn't we all just fly off?

Government shills are abundant in the days of the internet. They are most obvious when they use derogatory language or back-handed compliments such as "ignorant" or "amygdala-dominated". They are easy to see if you know what to look for. ;)

Perhaps they meant 2016 because the railroads certainly aren't busy this year: Wednesday, January 27, 2016 

Weekly carload traffic down nearly 20%
