The Sky May Actually Be Falling

First this guy trots out the B-word and “worse than 1929 and almost as bad as 2000.” Then some other guy utters the C-word and suggests there may be some handsome returns in shorting an S&P 500 Index fund might be a good idea right about now. And then there’s the guy whose math predicted the ’87, ’00, ’07 and ’09 market events, and his numbers say, well, nothing good.

The system, called Cook Cumulative Tick, is telling him now is that the market is losing steam internally, even as the indexes climb higher, and that’s going to lead to a slide of at least 20%, sometime over the next 12 months.

    "…there may be some handsome returns in shorting an S&P 500 Index fund might be a good idea right about now"

    What are you trying to say here? "…there may be some handsome returns in shorting an S&P 500 Index fund" or "shorting an S&P 500 Index fund might be a good idea right about now," you're suturing together two different clauses that ultimately express the same idea without a conjunction.
