30 Years Ago Today the Market Crashed, and It Will Again!

Daily Rap 10-19-2017

Last night a news story broke indicating that Apple had to cut orders to its suppliers as much as 50% because the Apple 8 was not selling well. Of course, that should not be surprising to anyone who has been paying attention. I myself have discussed the fact that the Apple 8 was an air ball upon its release, as there has been little demand for it. The bulls have tried to suggest that Apple 8 demand is as poor as it is because everyone is waiting for the Apple X, which is obviously a rationalization, and, oh, by the way, they are having trouble producing the X.

Last year's posts for Ask Fleck

It does feel like it will never end-and when it does it will be really bad. I guess it is different this time-can't find anything like this in the history books. All there is to do is wait until faith is lost at last in the Central Banks.

Fleck: There is nothing like this in the history books. Massive money printing has never been done before.

Q: Hey Bill,

GG is hanging in there pretty well.

I think they probably report a good quarter next week.

There could be a nice pop condidering the pervasive "animal spirits".

Fleck: They will report good quarters, I think. How much that will matter is what is key.

Q: Bill, is Jeff Suat som one you would listen to? He is saying we are in a secular bull that will last another 7-8 years.

Fleck: He has been very right, but I would say that prediction is absurd. It means QE and QT, should it actually be implemented, are both bullish. That is ridiculous.
