Now this is what a *bubble* really looks like…

S&P 500 hits record close for 41st time in 2014

Like clockwork, the S&P 500 has struck a new closing record high. The benchmark index continued a four-week streak on Friday, ending the week 0.3 per cent higher to close at 2,039.82, a new record, as upbeat earnings and better-than-expected retail sales kept stocks near recent highs.

  • Property bubble stock bubble more debt and leverage than 2007

    What could go wrong….bailed out banks and their behaviour didn’t improve it got worse

    This time there is nothing left to throw at the markets when things go wrong….what a mess
    And tipping point could happen at any time so investing in stocks is a no no imo

  • Taffee, as you may have guessed I prefer caution & sound money….however….

    What if the Central Bankers continued their QE & money printing ? Yes, I know that all countries QE is slightly different, but…

    What if they all stood firm behind their stance? I’m assuming they could “do whatever it takes”, wouldn’t it be sensible to dive into stocks for a few more years?

    Maybe you could time it so you get out before all the other folk?…. Could work in theory, maybe?

  • Cnbc commentators say the same but expect a crash at some point ala 1987

    Scary attitude imo…why not sit in cash rather than try for the last 10%…..I remember 1987…you couldn’t get hold
    Of your broker to sell

    In recent years I noticed that in times of severe volatility websites went down and phones were not answered

    This recent bull run is also pretty long in the tooth…also note Japan qe didn’t stop stocks and property plunging
    Over the years
