Bill Bonner: Why the Crowd Is About to Get Destroyed in US Stocks

Bill-Bonner2

“In the US, as in Japan, QE does not help stimulate a real recovery. But it does help simulate one.  House prices are up (thanks, in part, to ultra-low mortgage rates). The middle class has more ‘wealth’ (albeit the paper kind) due to gains in their stock market portfolios. The rich are feeling fat and sassy, too.  The Fed can continue modest tapering. But this is likely to produce a selloff in the stock market. Then the Fed will stop tapering. But it will be too late to reverse the damage to equities. They will go down for many years… bringing us even closer to the Japanese model.  Our guess now is that this situation will persist for a few years.”
