    SO in other words….we are all in deep doo doo. Is there ANYTHING that can turn this around? No?

    It’s all computer trading with some insider trading, that’s why. The stock market is an ILLUSION, and has been for the last 2 years. One more ruse to keep the American public from panic

      Finally you are the smartest person to leave a comment. Its all an illusion now stock market what they tell us on news money even what most history books say music is a super big one. Americans dont know that we are just a big secience project created by hitler and dont realize it yet.

      Your right. The stock market is now no more than glorified betting shop – a casino.
      Deals are now done on the rumor de jour. Money is made on the up and downs of daily fluctuations directly in line with the latest announcement from the Fed, the Euro ECB or the Germans.
      Stocks are far and away overvalued for their actual worth.
      e.g. Facebook listing 100 times it’s actual value.

      Derivatives are the elephant in the room.

      I reached the conclusion, a decade ago, that Wal-Street, is nothing but a charade.
      Here’s why I think this is.

      For an example, take a look at Enron.
      The folks who were buying and selling stock in Enron, were essentially, buying “nothing”.
      It is like they were buying a fictional product, an illusion, created by ‘perceived value’.

      This ^ might be an over-simplified analogy, but the point I am really getting at, is this notion of ‘perceived value’.
      Maybe ‘perceived value’ really WAS worth something, when Companies had real, ‘hard’, DURABLE GOODS to manufacture and sell.
      Today, much of the trading on Wal-Street has to do with complex ‘financial instruments’ and ‘securities’, such as ‘Derivatives’, instead of dealing with durable, hard goods.
      This over-reliance on complex ‘financial instruments’ and Crap like that, has unbalanced the entire system.

    Why doesn’t the stock market reflect the imminent global depression?

    Easy, because it’s election year. Much like how gas prices go down durring elections only to go back up, economic figures are no different. The truth is that one doesn’t need to look at the falsified numbers to determine if an economic collapse is impending, one only needs to look at the laws like NDAA and such to see the government is preparing for mass social unrest. The numbers like unemployment are constantly falsified to give a more optimistic enconimic outlook so that the American people don’t see the writing on the wall and damand political upheaval cutting politicians from the seats that they have become far too comfortable sitting in. The sad truth is that numbers can only be falsified so long before the inevitable takes hold. When the time comes for Americans to economically suffer much like the rest of the world it will come like a thief in the night because the truth of the dire straights before us were hidden from our eyes. This manipulation of data blinds us from the luxury of advanced notice.

    I’ve been asking myself the same question, what is propping up the stock market. I kept reading the article, but it didn’t answer the question? Must be rhetorical? I think the Feds are manipulating the markets and actually buying stocks to prop it up.

  5. Carpenter777 says:

    Remember dot.com bust?
    Remember the movie “Margin Call”?
    Remember the “packaging” of trillions of dollars of worth of worthless mortgages that were sold to investors around the globe as the best thing since sliced bread?
    Etc…..wall street don’t care as long as they make billions on investors?
    Remember when wall street and the bankers were bailed out?

    It is also a possibility that it is the intention to keep most Americans in the dark and then one morning wake up and find that they’ve lost everything and there is a new currency. That happened in North Korea about 2-3 years ago.
    Also, many Americans really do not follow their stocks or mutual funds as they should. They have put it in the hands of an advisor who will sink you if you do not watch that person.
    I learned early on……I’ve been bit….
    Furthermore, some mutual fund advisors are probably telling their clients that :It’s ok, the market will come back, it does this, you have to go through good times and bad times:. Which is true, but some Americans have their retirements locked up in it and have lost so much that
    there is an hope it will spring back and they will recover their loses.
    And God bless these people, they just want to be able to live after retirement and enjoy their golden years.
    One question remains. If Americans suddenly withdrew their monies from the Stock Market, what do you think would happen?

    That’s just my opinion…..

    • ONTHEMARK55 says:

      Well said, a lot of us have been “bit”. Speaking of retirement, remember the big push(politicians including the president,financial advisors,bankers,etc) to “allow” people to invest/privatize their social security funds pre 2008? Dosen’t seem to be so important anymore, hmm………….

      • Dennis E. says:

        I sure do and if all possible, I wouldn’t advise anyone to go there, but you know how some people are.

    We aren’t in Kansas any more , keep yourself close to God and love ones

  8. jake says:

    1. there is a plunge protection team in place. They buy things up to slow down massive sell-offs. I think this was started during the reagan years?
    2. quantitative easing by the fed inflates and frees up money for mega-banks and crony corporations to buy up more of the market.
    3. (this is a personal opinion) The US Markets are used to launder massive amounts of drug money and other illegal profits.

  9. Cookie's mum says:

    Alvin thank you so much for your continued watch and diligence in covering these world changing events..it would take me forever to sort through the mass/mess of info. to come to a point of clarity with it all. Your daily posts are invaluable to me because you report the facts clearly, concisely and with integrity…you are appreciated more than you know….

    The market is supported by the bonds of each countries slaves. Each of us has a market value. With so many choosing to suck on the teet of their governments, and small business unwilling to take risks by hiring said bums, they are loosing tax revenue. The market is a joke… and any that are supporting it by gambeling their earning in it deserve what is coming. Besides its those gamblers that care more about money then those suffering and struggling to put food on the table.

    The stock market is a giant casino …Only this time , there will more losers…

  12. tonic says:

    Maybe because the stock market will cease to exist.

  13. Irene C says:

    Well, I’m not a gambler so I don’t “invest” in stocks, even though I’m still trying to learn how it works. To say the stock market is an illusion is an understatement, like casinos who advertise the big winners but don’t tell you about the millions who’ve lost fortunes. Now is the time to be prepared. I figure that I’ve been living on a prayer for many years so I’m ready. God be with us all.

    Someone in an earlier post mentioned currency changing in North Korea. That reminded me of the early 70′s while assigned to S. Korea, where the US change the GI currency (MPC) every month to a different color. This way no one could get rich. You could exchange your pink money for the blue, and blue for the yellow each month and so on but, you could only exchange a small amount. So let’s say you had a thousand and the exchange limit was five-hundred, the rest would be trash.

    They did provide an exception to the rule if you could that prove that you earned any overages lawfully as in saving your money month to month, or having a large sum wired to you etc. And, this also destroyed the local’s who sold thing underhandedly because they could only trade with the GI’s who won’t trade because of the imposed limits. Must of us were broke by months end (especially me), but a few of the movers and shakers would have a lot more. I hope something like that isn’t coming down the pike.

  15. Sam Beckett says:

    “imminent global depression”? “time to panic”? Those terms are used very loosely & far from the truth. The europe markets are already showing signs of recovery now that Greece went the right way. The global markets are not sunshine & bunnies, but nor is it time to panic, etc…

  16. devlin says:

    it’s the ostrich syndrome…
    and Alvin, thanx for all the work you’re doing, and this site, and sorry for the way too long comment yesterday. I got carried away.
    peace

    Simple: As fiat currency is devalued, stock prices will generally increase—until they crash.

  18. sKeptical citizen says:

    Ive never had much use for the stock market because it produces nothing. Its not investing its gambling. Folks need to try to position themselves so their well being is not dependent or affected by other people things or conditions.

  19. Of the 24 previous comments, not one expresses even an inkling knowledge of the stock markets or basic economics. The stock market predicts the future economy. Thus, in 2008 the market took a 50% nose-dive while real unemployement was still in the 5% range. That 50% drop was predicting the conditions that our economy has been in since that time. Currently the stock market is holding at near pre-2008 levels because the market is betting that Obama and his communist gang are going to be thrown out of office. Furthermore, the market is predicting that Obamacare will be tossed out by the supremes in a few days.

    Alvin: You are our “Watchman on the Wall.” I look to you for the truth about current events. Many blessings!

  21. Richard says:

    People really need to grasp something important here. It’s not a financial crisis or a stcok market crisis or any other crisis baloney. That simply belies what is really going on. We have global economies based on infinite growth, Billlions and billions of people, GM foods just so we can eat, finite oil, finite gas, finite virtually everything. The financial “crisis” is merely reality catching up with the debt growth bubble. It’s about to go into the overtaking lane and when it does, watch out. In a nutshell 6 Billion people are going to cease to exist and there is nothing that will stop it. It happens in nature all the time. Unfortunately we are no different to the lemmings.
