Stock market crash coming soon

The Telegraph: Bosses in rush to sell their shares

Ok - so where are they putting their money then?

As far as I can tell, the sock market devalued quite a bit in 2004 as people transferred their money into houses. It is now reaching the same highs it reached during the dotcom boom. If inflation strikes, then holding cash is out, which seems to be happening. The stock market seems to be the place 2 me.

Rush to gold????

Signs are all there look for lower Retail figures this means that as the cost of living goes up the money for other goods and services goes down. This is Basic Economics really sadly though too many stupid people out there that are about to get fingers burnt big time.

This retail XMAS period will be very very intersesting......

Distribution from strong hands to weak. A double wammy for Joe average. Crippled by inflation and a deminishing pension / endowment plan.

I remember reading the story here last week that the next bubble could be in commodities. Not sure how accessible this is to professional fund managers. You would expect that different traders have different specialities, so there won't be any sudden stampede. Can't yet see how 'going liquid' is going to be a refuge in the face of inflation that is currently hiding in real estate.
