    In the wake of our recent amazing interviews with greats like Jim Rogers, James Grant, Ben Hunt and David Stockman — all of whom express great concern that today’s elevated market prices may undergo a sudden and violent correction — many of you have asked us to bring on a expert to challenge that point of view.

    Which we are more than happy to do. To avoid the echo chamber risk, it’s essential to understand the positions of those who draw different interpretations as we do from the same data.

    So, what’s the bull case for the markets from here?

    Market Update: Too Big To Fall?

    Will stocks ever drop again?

    In 2008 the banks were Too Big To Fail. Here in 2020, the stock market looks Too Big To Fall.

    So much of the status quo is now dependent on ever-higher asset prices that any weakness is immediately met with overwhelming support by the central banks and/or national legislatures.

    Many are now wondering: will stocks ever be allowed to drop again?

    As the Wuhan coronavirus spread worsens, the financial markets are throwing one hell of party, hitting record highs.

    Yet the world’s #2 economy, China, just hung up a big “CLOSED” sign — stocks should be tanking hard here.

    How can they shrug off the virus’ threat to global trade?

    How Will The Coronavirus Impact The Markets?

    It's a true Black Swan event that stocks haven't yet priced in

    In addition to presenting a major public health risk, the coronavirus is already doing serious economic damage. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is essentially “closed for business” right now.

    The disruption to global trade the coronavirus is likely to cause is going to be material, perhaps severe. And that will have serious negative consequences for the financial markets, which have been (and is still!) trading at the highest valuations in history.

    The coronavirus has all the hallmarks of a true Black Swan event.

    VIDEO: The Fed’s Evil Juggernaut

    Don't let it crush your future

    The US Federal Reserve is once again force-feeding liquidity into the system. At its fastest rate ever.

    The result? Record high stock prices whose valuations defy all logic.

    What’s wrong with that? Shouldn’t we just enjoy the party and be grateful for our rising 401ks?

    What’s wrong is that the Fed’s actions are dooming us. Their poisonous cocktail of endless cheap money and rock-bottom interest rates is hastening a terminal breakdown of the economy, while deliberately enriching a tiny cadre of elites to the ruin of everyone else.

    Bubbles Are Brutal

    Nothing makes sense in their late stages

    Asset bubbles are brutal.

    The most difficult time to remain centered and focused is during their last stages as everyone around you is going nuts. Logic has been tossed out the window, sentiment is manic, and every narrative – the stories we hear and use to make sense of our world – is thoroughly ungrounded.

    The Fed Is Lying To Us

    "When it becomes serious, you have to lie"

    The recent statements from the Federal Reserve and the other major world central banks (the ECB, BoJ, BoE and PBoC) are alarming because their actions are completely out of alignment with what they’re telling us.

    Their words seek to soothe us that “everything’s fine” and the global economy is doing quite well. But their behavior reflects a desperate anxiety.

    Put more frankly; we’re being lied to.

    Realistically, What’s Left To Power Asset Prices Higher?

    The case to short the markets continues to build

    Here we are again. The markets are within a few percentage points of their all-time highs, but just can’t seem to muster the momentum to break out above them.

    We saw similar conditions back in March/April and then again in July. Both times, the S&P dropped sharply after failing to remain above 3,000.

    Both situations presented profitable opportunities to short stocks.
