S&P 500 Breaks Below 2,000, Crashes Into Red Year-Over-Year

S&P 500 Breaks Below 2,000, Crashes Into Red Year-Over-Year (ZeroHedge, Aug 21, 2015):

The S&P 500 index has broken below the crucial psychological 2,000 level for the first time since late January. This is the biggest collapse in stocks since June 2013 (bigger than October’s plunge – which was only rescued by Bullard’s threat of QE4). What is perhaps most worrisome for the trend-followers – the S&P is now down year-over-year for the first time since May 2012… which once again brought The Fed out with moar QE.

30Y Treasury Yield Plunges To 3-Month Lows As S&P Breaks Key Technical Support

30Y Treasury Yield Plunges To 3-Month Lows As S&P Breaks Key Technical Support (ZeroHedge, Aug 3, 2015):

The carnage is contagious. The S&P 500 just broke down below its 50- and 100-day moving averages unable to hold the ubiquitous pre-EU-close ramp highs. Treasury yields have plunged since the weak spending and ISM data with the 5Y breaking below its 200-day moving average and 30Y yields testing 3-month lows

This Technical Signaled The Last Two Market Crashes And It Just Happened (ZeroHedge, April 17, 2015):

So the fundamental case for a 20 year bull run as BMO is calling for and  certainly many other banks seem to be onboard with that is not looking great YTD.  In fact, most perma bulls have shy’d away from even mentioning fundamentals other than to say that generally they aren’t looking great but don’t worry the Fed is still engaged.   And so I feel its a worthwhile exercise to have a look at the technicals.  Thing about the technicals is that you can cherry pick any baseline point to really make any case, good or bad.  But if we take a look at a time period that encompasses several cycles we negate our ability to cherry pick the baseline and we can be much more confident in our overall analysis.

Guess What Happened The Last Two Times The S&P 500 Was Up More Than 200% In Six Years?

11 Economic Crashes That Are Happening RIGHT NOW

Guess What Happened The Last Two Times The S&P 500 Was Up More Than 200% In Six Years? (Economic Collapse, March 11, 2015):

Just a few days ago, the bull market for the S&P 500 turned six years old.  This six year period of time has been great for investors, but what comes next?  On March 9th, 2009 the S&P 500 hit a low of 676.53.  Since that day, it has risen more than 200 percent.  As you will see below, there are only two other times within the last 100 years when the S&P 500 performed this well over a six year time frame.  In both instances, the end result was utter disaster. And as you take in this information, I want you to keep in mind what I said in my previous article entitled “7 Signs That A Stock Market Peak Is Happening Right Now“.  What we are witnessing at this moment is classic “peaking behavior”, and there is a long way to go down from here.  So if historical patterns hold up, those with lots of money in the stock market could soon be in for a whole lot of trouble.

Blackrock Stunner: S&P 500 Profits Are 86% Higher Than They Would Be Without Accounting Fudges

Blackrock Stunner: S&P 500 Profits Are 86% Higher Than They Would Be Without Accounting Fudges (Zerohedge, Dec 26,  2014):

“It becomes tempting to take on too much leverage, use financial wizardry to reward shareholders or even stretch accounting principles. S&P 500 profits are 86% higher than they would be if accounting standards of the national accounts were used, Pelham Smithers Associates notes. And the gap between the two measures is widening, the research firm finds.” – Blackrock
