    Why This Market Needs To Crash

    And likely will
    by Chris Martenson

    Like an old vinyl record with a well-worn groove, the needle skipping merrily back to the same track over and over again, we repeat: Today's markets are dangerously overpriced.

    Strange as it may sound, it's our opinion that the sooner a major market correction happens, the better. Crash now while there’s still chance of picking up the pieces afterwards and making something useful from them. The longer we push off the inevitable fall, the more destructive it will be and the more difficult it will be to recover from.

    A Murderous Complacency

    Dark omens are circling everywhere in today's markets

    Running PeakProsperity.com requires me to read and process a lot of data on a daily basis. As it's hard to digest it all in real-time, I keep a running list of charts, tables and articles that catch my attention, to return to when I have the time to give them my full attention.

    Lately, that list has been getting quite long. And it's largely full of indicators that concern me, signals that the long era of "extend and pretend" in today's markets may finally be at its terminus.

    Like crows circling overhead, everyday brings with it new worrisome statistics that portend an ill change ahead. Indeed, these signs are increasing so quickly now that it's hard not to feel like Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock's classic The Birds.

    Michael Pento: The Coming Bond Bubble Collapse

    All asset classes will collapse in tandem when this bursts

    In this week's podcast, Michael Pento, fund manager and author of The Coming Bond Bubble Collapse, explains how the United States is fast approaching the end stage of the biggest asset bubble in history. He describes how the bursting of this bubble will cause a massive interest rate shock that will send the US consumer economy and the US government—pumped up by massive Treasury debt—into bankruptcy, an event that will send shockwaves throughout the global economy:

    Recent Chris Appearances In The Media

    A slew of good interviews to catch up on
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, September 12, 2016, 7:09 PM

    Chris has been in high demand over the past few weeks, as media outlets try to make sense of the options available to the Federal Reserve at this point. More and more, the confidence in the asset price bubbles blown by the Fed's "endless easing" policy is coming under scrutiny by the average observer.

    How much longer can it continue? What are the long-term societal costs of this central bank intervention?

    And more important: What will trigger the return to higher interest rates? (and thereby, the puncturing of the bubbles blown by the Fed)  And what will the repercussions be?

    ALERT: Markets In Breakdown

    Time to take emergency funds out of the banking system
    by Chris Martenson

    This is a formal ALERT.

    We issue those very sparingly here at Peak Prosperity. We only issue them when world events have gotten to the point that we are personally taking new actions to shore up our preparations.

    2016 is fast proving that the tranquility the world has enjoyed from 2010 up to now has been false; that the problems we face were merely temporarily papered-over by central planners, not resolved. That tranquility is now over. Prepare for more turbulent times.

    New Harbor: A Time For Staying Out Of Harms Way

    Preserving your financial capital
    by Adam Taggart

    Given the brutal start to the markets in the first three weeks of 2016, we thought it a good time to check in with the team at New Harbor Financial. We have had them on our podcast periodically over the past years as the market churned to ever new highs, and have always appreciated their skepticism of these liquidity-driven ""markets"" as well as their unwavering commitment to risk management should the party in stocks end suddenly.

    So, how is their risk-managed approach faring now that the S&P 500 has suddenly dropped 8% since Christmas? Quite well. Their general portfolio is flat for the year so far — evidence that caution, prudence and hedging can indeed preserve capital during market downdrafts.

    We've invited the New Harbor team back on this week to hear their latest assessment on the markets, as well as how they're approaching their portfolio positioning moving forward.

    Or just another head-fake bear trap?

    Is this stock market decline the "real deal"? (that is, the start of a serious correction of 10% or more) Or is it just another garden-variety dip in the long-running Bull market? Let’s start by looking for extremes that tend to mark the tops in Bull markets.

    The Case for a Crash

    And for staying in cash until 2015
    by charleshughsmith

    We’ve recently been treated to two mutually exclusive forecasts: that the Great Bull Market will run until 2016 or 2018, so no worries; and that markets are exhibiting bubble-like characteristics that presage another crash.

    So which forecast is more likely the correct one?
