The world has become so dangerous that apparently nothing seems to be able to rattle us out of our cozy existence, whether we live in a developed nation or not. Natural calamities visit the poor as well as the rich nations, for one thing. And the economic crisis affects every person somehow, whether he or she is the richest person or the most destitute of all – the former constantly fears losing money in a financial crash while the latter of finally starving to death one day with many others in the same dire state.
But is a 50% collapse of the stock market equivalent to the death of our way of life or, even close to a literal death for those who depend on it as their source of living? One does not have to be so poor to fear losing one’s entire livelihood or all of one’s wealth.
But according to several reputable experts, it is only a matter of time before the stock market plunges by 50% or more. “We have no right to be surprised by a severe and imminent stock market crash,” explains Mark Spitznagel, a hedge-fund manager who is notorious for his hugely profitable billion-dollar bet on the 2008 crisis. “In fact, we must absolutely expect it.”
And Spitznagel, unfortunately, is not the only one saying that.
Marc Faber, a Swiss adviser and fund manager, warns that “we are in a gigantic financial asset bubble” which “could burst any day.” And Faber blames President Obama’s big-government policies and the Federal Reserve’s risk-prone low-rate policies, which, he says, “penalize the income earners, the savers who save, your parents — why should your parents be forced to speculate in stocks and in real estate and everything under the sun?”
Likewise, billion-dollar investor Warren Buffett is allegedly also foreseeing a crash. The “Warren Buffett Indicator,” referred to also the “Total Market Cap to GDP Ratio,” is breaking the limits of sell-alert conditions, predicting an imminent collapse soon.
Under the circumstances, what should one do? Either one sells and keep the money stashed away or risk it all.
But Sean Hyman, founder of Absolute Profits, proposes another option.
“There are specific sectors of the market that are all but guaranteed to perform well during the next few months,” Hyman explains. “Getting out of stocks now could be costly.”
What makes Hyman so confident?
He is supposedly privy to a secret Wall Street calendar that has beaten the overall market by 250% since 1968. This calendar contains a list of 19 investments (based on sectors of the market) and 38 dates when to buy or sell them, allowing anyone to convert $1,000 into as much as $178,000 in two decades.
In a video clip, Sean Hyman revealed the existence of this Wall Street calendar. (Sean Hyman Reveals His Secret Wall Street Calendar in This Controversial Video, Click Here.) He uses this calendar as part of his overall investment system.
“I have also designed a Crash Alert System that is designed to warn investors before a major correction as well,” Hyman adds. He says that if the market begins to dip, the Crash Alert System will send a warning for investors to sell.
The investment tool would have helped anyone avoid the 2000 and 2008 collapses and back-testing has proven the system to be effective, according to Hyman. Anyone would have made tons of money by simply avoiding those horrendous sell-offs.
Looks like Hyman wears bright-colored glasses through the coming financial storm. Yet, his record for predicting stock market movements is stellar, earning him the trust of thousands of subscribers to his monthly newsletters and millions of buyers of his investment videos.
In a 2012 interview on Bloomberg Television, Hyman rightly predicted that Best Buy would drop down to $11 a share and then it would rally back up to $40 a share over the next few months. And as Hyman predicted, it did happen. Other instances of his uncanny ability seem to bolster his claims to the efficacy of his system.
This time around, we would be watching eagerly what happens to the stock market: not just to see if Hyman and the rest of the “doomsayers” are correct but, more so, to prepare for whatever dire events the collapse might bring about. Some people might actually be making money out of the prediction; but most people will continue to muddle through life unaware and, perhaps, indifferent to what happens to the stock market.
Life may indeed be like the proverbial gambling game. A few people might get a windfall from a day at the casino while most bettors go home with less money or, worse, penniless. In the end, where we invest our money, whether in stocks or in business or in any other worthwhile endeavor, will determine the kind of profit or benefits we will gain from it as well as the kind of future life we will have.
