The only thing which can stop this now would be a surprise that if the Fed starts hiking, that the stock market isn't falling apart for several weeks, like it did every previous time after a key rate hike.
What is causing the big stock market crash of 2016?

-Economy only grows when you produce more goods than you can consume, and sell the remaining. What's happening now is simply people putting on massive debt on cheap interest and churning it out just to pay interest (China steel companies, iron, shale oil)
I'm waiting for the waves of default which is happening any time now. This is creating a huge deflationary pressure
