Let Market Crash Now Or Face Financial Train Wreck
Experts encourage facing reality that stocks are overvalued due to weak dollar, but Fed set to continue with dangerous sweeping rate cuts

The Fed's continued obsession with slashing interest rates and printing money in order to maintain the facade of the grossly overvalued stock market while the dollar collapses is precipitating a financial holocaust. Yuppies need to cut their losses and accept a soft crash now or place the very pillars of the American economy in danger.

Pre Market (futures, nasdaq, nyse, dow, s p) - Trader Talk with Bob Pisani - CNBC.com

Vague rumors are again moving markets today. Europe is weak (down 5 percent) on concerns of additional losses from major banks, as well as the failure of Europe to cut rates.

Thank you, Apple

AAPL

Bears also believe that rate cuts will fail to stabilize markets, and there will be no leadership because of a drawn out process with financials, and tech expectations taken down

For the bulls, a lot of things have to go right:

--Europe cuts rates
--Fed cuts 50 bp next week
--Bond insurers stabilize/rescued
--Energy, financials re-emerge as leaders
--Insider buying picks up
--Investment outflows stabilize

The biggest advantage the bulls have is the already oversold conditions.

So where do we go from here? One trader noted yesterday that we have entered a new trench war of data points and news flow on the dangers of recession vs. rate cuts and stimulus.
