    The Hill ^ | June 15, 2019
    President Trump asserted on Saturday there would be dire economic consequences should he lose the 2020 presidential race, leaning into his reelection slogan "Keep America Great." “The Trump Economy is setting records, and has a long way up to go....However, if anyone but me takes over in 2020 (I know the competition very well), there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before! KEEP AMERICA GREAT,” he tweeted.

  • Why A Market Downturn Would Only Boost Donald Trump’s Campaign

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/24/2015 | Jamie Weinstein
    The Dow Jones opened down over 1,000 points Monday to the consternation of most investors — but to the likely political benefit of one Donald J. Trump. Those once again predicting we’ve reached “peak Trump” may need to reevaluate that position if the market continues to slide. Trump is the type of candidate who will only benefit in a period of economic uncertainty, or even calamity. Trump’s whole campaign pitch is that he is the billionaire businessman who will save America from the rapacious special interests, greedy investors and “cunning” foreign actors that have combined to sell America’s middle class...

    Months ago I saw a rumor that some crooked billionaires had worked out a scheme to profit from a stock market crash. At the time I thought it must be just an urban legend. No one could be so stupid as to try to crash the stock market, particularly while the nation is at war. Now I’m not so sure it’s just an urban legend. Ron Paul and other hucksters are advertising that we should follow their advice to avoid the economic debacle they claim is coming. Someone needs to tell these dopes that if they succeed in causing an...

    Those who think that we're going to "muddle through" have another think coming... China’s export growth collapsed and imports and new yuan loans trailed estimates in July, reports today showed. Outbound shipments increased 1 percent from a year earlier and imports rose 4.7 percent, the customs bureau said. The growth in July exports compared with the 8 percent median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey and 11.3 percent in June. Analysts estimated a 7 percent gain in imports after a 6.3 percent increase in June. [snip]

    Zero Hedge ^ | 09/22/2011 | Graham Summers
    I’ve been warning for weeks now that the Fed would disappoint with its September meeting. And boy did it. As I forecast, the Fed didn’t announce QE 3. In fact, it didn’t announce any new policy of note. Instead it is simply reshuffling its holdings to focus more on the long end of the bond markets. On top of this, the Fed announced it will only be moving roughly $400 billion of its portfolio around. This is the smallest major intervention the Fed has announced since it began implementing QE in 2009 (QE 1 was $1.25 trillion while QE 2 was...

    "Guys this is probably the craziest I have seen it down here ever." Here it is, memorialized for the generations and away from the now openly ridiculous disinformation propaganda of the mainstream media, just what a full market meltdown panic sounds like: straight from the epicenter, the S&P 500 pits. Luckily open ouctry still exists, if at least for shock value.

    Someone put on a bearish position in the S&P 500 just 10 minutes before the market took a dive Thursday, suggesting the market swoon was less a mistake and more the result of some traders exiting a carry trade, hedging, or outright speculating. In any event, the much discussed "fat fingered" trader might not exist.What's clear is that once some computers hit triggers to sell, that selling pressure triggered other computers to sell and within minutes the rout was on. It also happened at a time of day when margin calls would have snowballed. Data from Interactive Brokers shows 48,000...

  • Grim forecast for U.S. home-buying season

    International Herald Tribune ^ | March 8, 2009 | Vikas Bajaj
    The "For Sale" signs are just starting to sprout, but already experts worry that this spring home-buying season in the United States will be even grimmer than the last. Despite tentative signs of recovery in hard-hit areas like California and Florida, the broader housing market is far from hitting bottom, economists said. Across much of America, prices are likely to keep falling through 2010. So the March-to-June season, when most homes are bought and sold, will be bad this year - perhaps the worst since the market began to spiral down in 2006. Across the nation, 19 million houses and...

    The US and advanced economies’ financial system is now headed towards a near-term systemic financial meltdown as day after day stock markets are in free fall, money markets have shut down while their spreads are skyrocketing, and credit spreads are surging through the roof. There is now the beginning of a generalized run on the banking system of these economies; a collapse of the shadow banking system, i.e. those non-banks (broker dealers, non-bank mortgage lenders, SIV and conduits, hedge funds, money market funds, private equity firms) that, like banks, borrow short and liquid, are highly leveraged and lend and invest...

Key parts of the derivatives market shut down and a panic flight to safety depressed the yield on three-month US Treasury bills to almost zero for the first since the Great Depression in 1934.

    The Great Depression was the worst economic slump ever in U.S. history, and one which spread to virtually all of the industrialized world. The depression began in late 1929 and lasted for about a decade. Many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; however, the main cause for the Great Depression was the combination of the greatly unequal distribution of wealth throughout the 1920's, and the extensive stock market speculation that took place during the latter part that same decade. The maldistribution of wealth in the 1920's existed on many levels. Money was distributed disparately between the rich...

Axa said more than 100,000 small investors in the fund would not be able to access their money for up to six months, although regular income already being paid, retirements and death claims will not be affected. It joins Friends Provident, Scottish Equitable and Scottish Widows in halting withdrawals from once high-flying funds, which many savers have seen as...

    Riyadh -- The Saudi stock market closed one of the most turbulent years in its history, ending 2006 down 52.53 per cent under strong correction pressure following seven years of continuous rise. The market, the largest in the Arab world, has seen its capitalisation cut by half since the end of last year and as much as $500bn wiped off the market’s peak value of more than $800bn. The Tadawul All-Shares Index (Tasi) closed on Wednesday, the last trading day of the year, below the 8,000-point psychological barrier on 7,933.29 points, sharply down from its 2005 closing of 16,712.64 points...

    (CNN) -- Investors in India are dumping shares on fears the country's new Congress-led government will slow or halt the economic reforms that have delivered 8 percent growth to the world's biggest democracy. The country's biggest stock market, the Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai, closed down 11 percent in Monday trading. That came after it fell almost 16 percent and was closed twice earlier in the day to try to stem the rout.

    From the security of their own homes, many sneer at the get-rich-quick crowd that lost money when the tech bubble burst. But many who would throw stones are living in glass houses—barely maintained by fragile second mortgages. The brash sales pitches, reckless spending, and short-sighted decisions that fueled the dot coms’ rise and fall have taken over the mortgage market. Everyone now knows about the tech bubble because it has already burst; fewer recognize its near neighbor, the mortgage bubble because they are living in it. In the third quarter of last year, home mortgages increased at a record annual...
