Beware: All Signs Portend An Imminent Market Correction

That's awesome Norman. I guess you just really are concerned about our future, as we all should be. But you know what it is, especially with our industry..it's very easy to lose track of what's important in life...especially those of us who are not yet as financially secure as yourself. We are too selfish, admittedly. God bless you.

You sound paranoid. Let's let our great great grandchildren deal with it, the hell with them. They'll probably be assholes anyway! But your days are numbered my friend, please just try to enjoy, I beg of you! I'll even allow you to take Menon a vacation to a place of your choosing, your treat!!!

What you're is admirable but it's just a waste of effort in my opinion. Worrying isn't gonna change anything. Here's my attitude, make a fortune trading, take every last penny on the bearish side, watch the economy and country crash and burn (as long as I own speculative long puts) and take the fortune that will likely be in a currency such as USD and convert it into a stable asset cause you can't trust the dollar forever. Last but not least, take your hard assets and move to the Cayman islands, Bahamas or Macau with your family. It's really simple. Everybody including the president is raping America and then tossing her out in the cold, why aren't you willing to do the same? Nothing to do with conscious or morals, what you're saying is admirable but foolish and this isn't the place for it.

I think everybody would be better served if you dropped your patriotic holierthanthou rhetoric and focused on the bearish opportunity presenting itself. Why should I, or anybody for that matter (you included) as a trader give a rats behind about anything other than making quick money in the markets? I have tremendous respect for you Norman. I was one of your die hard followers on SA. But just please cut the crap.

This is why I exited my long positions at the end of the year and went severely short, losing a bit now but I got my eye on the big picture, as you describe. Puts are your best friend. Long puts that is....

I agree Bill. It's just about perspective. But here's what I learned in my short life thus far. If I sugar coat, the message won't come across. How do you think Trump became President? By being "nice" to Adam? I don't think so.

Report highlighting certain patterns in options order flow activity. Notably, $3M worth of calls were flagged being bought on WYNN Resorts and then just a short two weeks later, the stock had gone up 20% since I published the report and the calls could have netted a savvy trader up to 5000% returns.
