Volatility in the Stock Market Could Skyrocket (Elliott Wave)

FX:SPX500   S&P 500 Index
The cracks are starting to form in the Stock Market. Tech has plunged in one of the worst crashes since 2008. Energy companies are hanging off a cliff as the price of USOIL craters further, due to the ongoing trade wars and countries like Iran and Venezuela increasing production and avoiding sanctions. Home Builder stocks are hanging off a cliff and new home buying has slowed significantly. The real estate market has stagnated for years and houses are as overpriced as they were before the Great Recession, and interest rates are rising now making houses even more overpriced. Health Care stocks are in one of the largest bubbles of their history thanks to the Affordable Care Act which is likely to be repealed during Trump's terms. Bonds have seen the worst crash since 2008 with little signs of stopping, putting extreme strain on the banking industry, with some banks like Duetsche on the brink of collapse, and defaults will only get worse as companies with extremely thin margins go bankrupt from lower commodity prices and higher interest rates. Retail and Manufacturing will also suffer badly from the trade war with China, as they will no longer be able to buy and produce cheap goods from China. It seems that the longest bull-run in history many finally be coming to an end, and it could get pretty ugly.

The cherry on top is Volatility ETFs like VXX and UVXY which will be extremely profitable to buy, but also exasperate volatility in the stock market, due to the heavy buying of volatility that will be going on to hedge large stock market bets. For years, volatility and short volatility ETFs have suppressed volatility by selling volatility into an uptrend in the stock market. Now they will make volatility much worse by buying volatility into a downtrend in the stock market.

Based on the Elliott Wave count, it's possible we're in a Neutral Triangle beginning in 2000, and that Wave-(e) will be about as big as wave-(a). So this may not be as bad as the Great Recession, but it could still be very ugly and there will likely be major bailouts by the government. However, at the end of this triangle around 2021, there is likely to be a flood out of USD and fiat currency, which will likely cause hyperinflation or chronic inflation in many countries, including the US. This will lead to significantly higher asset prices across the board, sending the stock market to all time highs fairly quickly. The collapse in fiat currency will be primary caused by people losing faith in the government's ability to pay their deficits without having to print money to pay for them.

It looks like we'll get one final i-wave before we finally crash sometime in mid-2019.


inflation? buy Bitcoin;)
That is the inevitable consequence but it is not going to happen when everybody and their dog expects a crash. The upcoming crash will not come from a known unknown. I believe most people expecting a crash this soon are looking at the wrong metrics as compelling as they may appear.
is it no longer possible to "copy" your charts and look at them ourselves?

@renkcub, I never turned that off, so maybe Tradingview disabled that feature?
