The United States is in for a rude awakening and SOON. The idiot that runs the treasury and keeps printing Billions of dollars that have no reserve to back it up, is only making matters worse.  The whole world is laughing at the United States because they know what's about to happen.  We were the world reserve.  But now we're the laughing stock of the world.  The government is lying it's **** off to the people to cover up the borrowing it's doing when they know damn well that there is no way at all to pay any of it back.  All the countries we stiff will eventually have their day.  I pity the government when it completely folds.  I really feel sorry for America and it's people when it and they become third world.  I really think we the people should vote out all of the government and reelect a totally new bunch that don't have their greedy hands in everybody's pockets.  Wake up people before its too late.

With a struggling economy that is far worse off than anyone cares to say, the record levels on Wall Street are way out of line .... Do the math ..... this market is a hoax, and in the end this next crunch will be devastating for ALL except those speculators who have engineered the crash.

Hey Idiots, give it up on always trying to compare results with history. What is going on in our society has never happened in the past. Our standard of living going down due to very few good paying jobs and the fact that Wall Street controls the corporations and government.

It's not a question of "if" but of "when" equities will have a major pullback.


Shiller says the P/E ratios are high historically.


October is coming and usually bad for stocks.


September is coming... The Fed Taper.


Interest rates are on a climbing trend.


Revenues and Net Income have stalled.


Consumer sentiment down tick.


The hoard will buckle once one of the herd starts significant selling.


Stocks have no where to go but sideways or lower.  And if they go sideways for too long -- down it shall be.

One thing is for sure... a correction is coming and no QE will soften the blow. The Dow was just under 7,000 before QE kicked in. Since then, ALL business platforms have come to rely on it. My guess is--- that the correction steps us down to under 7,000 again and a bit more for getting platforms hiring like there's no tomorrow. That costs cash too. A 5,000 Dow by New Year leaves only solid opportunities to restore indigenous stability. Platforms reduced to cash and administration go POOF and execs who try to take it with them go to jail. This is badly needed folks... when the REAL unemployment rate is under 4% and family-sustaining jobs and careers are restored, America lives again.

Reason #1 (OK, it's the only reason) - Uh, it's rigged.  duh.   I don't keep a penny with those con artists.

The stock market is like a YO-YO.   It goes up and down and up and down. Then once in a while the string on the YO-YO breaks and then it CRASHES.

Hoping for a market panic. After the market crashed in 1974 a reporter asked Warren Buffett: "How do you contemplate the current stock market?"

“Like an oversexed guy in a harem,” he shot back. “This is the time to start investing.”

Well, let the sale begin...dollar cost averaging.

I love it.  The very first sentence in 1. is Don't sell out long-term positions...   the market is going to crash, but don't sell off, lol    Typical msn advice.

Wall Street has purchased our government - mostly the Republicans because they love the system and are in agreement with Wall Streets values - but they own both parties - yes even the tea party Republicans - the system has been set up so that candidates can't get elected without Wall Street.

 Wall Street is never satisfied, they want your Medicare dollars, Social Security dollars, your 401K until there is
nothing left - it is all consuming.
They are counting on the stupidity of Americans to keep choosing R's of D's to bicker against each other and name call while they steal the rug out from underneath you but until we wake up - if we ever do - we will be responsible for our own demise.

Who is right or wrong?  What is safe and what to invest in??? If you want to pay to subscribe to some so called expert that seems to be able to make a prediction.  I don't know, but cash seems to be a good thing  and gold or silver another. Oil stocks are always a good investment!  As well as electric stocks. I need solar panels and a wind mills to save money and when are there going to be solar cars that have battery backup!!!

The eighth reason is your irresponsible alarmism.

MSN keeps putting out article after article of absolute garbage. They is so much news going on and this is what they put out pure garbage.

Isn't it ironic that Presidents Obama's stated goal is to level the playing field.
Yet, who has enjoyed the stock market ride? The rich, not the average guy. 

Thanks Barack!! hahhaa

It's all our own faults. Look at us becoming sodom and gomorrah overnight practically. Anything goes. Don't dare mention Jesus at school

but you can learn all about Mohammed and don't pray in school, but if you are muslim, you can have a prayer room all to yourselves. It is a sad US of A and doesn't resemble anyhting our forefathers fought to acheive! We are doomed unless a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit comes to this nation under God!!! I have a right to say that, so remember that you who mock Christians!!!
