What goes up must come down and when it does this time it's going to fall like a rock.   Most people are going to pull their money ASAP because they don't want to loss the gains.  It's going to look like a fright train on a down hill slope with no breaks. 

 

Good luck to you that are taking the risk of playing the new Ponzi stock market game!
