Do you even know what would make the market crash? Most economist agree that we will not have a double dip recession. I believe we will have U shaped recovery and that we will keep the momentum until 2nd qtr of 2010. If I was you I would cover before the market steps any higher. I am sure there will be a massive covering within the last minutes of trading.
Not really! The crash can still be held off, and the heavy lifting on this may be being done by the banks, and when the banks (and other financial companies) can no longer bear the burden of holding up the market themselves the government may pull a few more rabbits out of its hat to hold off the crash until after the 2012 election.
The problems will start very quickly after the election.
