Equities going parabolic - Is the crash near?

Recommended Posts

AAPL, as the leading bellweather stock, encapsulates everything you need to know about this market, and indeed this economy. Yes, the did fantastic things since 2004 to revolutionize consumer electronic goods, but since the iPad they have not done anything revolutionary, just refined what they already have, same as Microsoft did 15-20 years ago. Now all their marketing is about lifestyle etc.  The technological driving forces behind the last economic cycle have all played out, and it's all getting very long in the tooth now.

 

WRT to deflation.. I will keep an open mind. True deflation only happens when there is contraction of the money supply. This is what happened in the great depression as banks went bust and they were tied to the gold standard (There is a great Milton Friedman video on YT about this). I think there will a prevelant feeling of FEAR gripping everyone, not just in the markets, but in general, and people will be very reluctant to spend money on anything non-discretionary, but perhaps that will be mistaken as deflation. It's not.
