    Oops, bad paste last time

    And that queasy feeling is mixed in with some déjà vu for Acampora:

    “The last time I saw anything like this was in 1994, when the Dow and the S&P were in a 10% trading range all year, and then under the surface they were just ripping them apart. I have a sick feeling that we might be doing that again,” he said.

    Of course Acampora wasn’t all bear and no bull. After a drop into autumn, he said the fourth quarter will be “very, very strong.”

    Given the market’s mini-meltdown on Thursday, it’s no doubt that more bears will be prowling, with the sloth perhaps riled up by David “don’t be so freakin’ long” Tepper, who is credited for helping to take down stocks a day prior in Vegas. Waving a mini-flag for the bulls at SALT late Thursday was Leon Cooperman, who predicted the S&P could end the year near 2000 if the Fed doesn’t screw up the taper. Cooperman said he’s “positive with a small ‘p’” on stocks.

    The worst drop in five weeksfor the S&P 500 SPX -0.94% and the Dow industrials DJIA -1.01% and a drive for the Russell 2000 RUT -0.65% into correction territory has brought out the bears and not just the SALT-y guys in Vegas.

    Ralph Acampora, a known stock bull and technical analysis guru, told CNBC on Thursday before markets closed, that he thinks it could get really bad for stocks and that he has a “sick feeling” about what lies ahead.

    The director of technical trading at Altaira Investment Solutions predicts the S&P 500, which is up 1.2% for the year so far, will see a 10% drop between now and October. His crystal ball darkens considerably for other indexes

    “If you ask me about the Russell RUT -0.65% and the Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.76% and the S&P MidCap, I think you’re talking about 20, 25%…and I call it a stealth bear market going on,” said Acampora.

    He said the “melt-up” that began last December and carried into the first quarter of this year has left stocks like Facebook FB +0.11% and Amazon AMZN -0.26% overextended. That needs to be unwound and markets aren’t even close on that front, he said, saying “it bothered me then, and it still bothers me.”

    The biblical interpretation that Russia is Gog, is one that some Russians believe themselves according to historian Christopher Marsh. He writes "Russians and Ukrainians, [are] two peoples with a long history of looking to the Bible for clues to their past and future. At least as far back as the Primary Chronicle, the Rus' looked to scripture for such clues and found them from Genesis to Revelations. They were the descendants of Noah's third son, Japheth, giving themselves direct lineage to the diluvian period, and they were of the tribe of Magog (or Gog), in the land of Rosh. The implications of such identity as expressed in Revelations, where the Gog and Magog were both thrown out of heaven, apparently didn't matter to those drawing these lines. Ancestors were found in the Bible, and that was enough."[55]

    Some members of the Bahá'í Faith believe the Qur'anic prophecy of Gog and Magog was fulfilled during the Russo-Turkish Wars of the beginning of the 19th century. Russia conquered Crimea, the European part of the Ottoman Empire (including Adrianople), Iran's Caucasian provinces and Central Asia.[56]
