Does Highest Ever Margin Debt Create Perfect Storm for a Stock Market Crash?
My answer to that is Yes. Also I have heard that hedge funds are unwinding their oil positions, since they have more money than Gawd that will have to an effect on the price of oil. Those clowns could push the US into another recession, investing may be the hardiest thing to do on this planet since Wall Street and the banksteers manipulate virtually everything, in that environment supply and demand isn't real and our economy can't work for the vast majority American's. All of the money has gone up concentrated in to few hands, the average Joe can't get a loan, can't get a raise, can't make ends meet, and some in congress want to take away minimum wages, food stamps and other social subsidies for the poor, but lord don't think about closing some of their loopholes, like tax avoidance Cayman Isle shelters that are little more than an address.
WOW... ease up there ff. There is a Chinese proverb that goes "Life is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those who feel". And yes, the more maxxed out the stock buying credit card is, the less new buying can occur. Margin calls can really excellerate any sharp downward moves too.
