Yes, it is true in this case. Unless...

No, it's true. There is no unless.


Central banks injected over $2T in equity markets in 2017. The number might be closer to $3T. Bank of America reported $2T in Sept 2017.


The total amount of liquidity provided by central banks to equity markets is over $15T!!!

So now, central banks are set to pull out of equities in 2018.

Explain where the money is going to come from.

Can anyone explain to me who is going to pick up the slack? Do you think the tax plan will free up that much in assets?

Seriously folks, how else will this end?

I think the FED will take the place of other central banks, but that is also ridiculous. I mean, how long can this last?

How else can this end? Thoughts? I have no idea. I can't see anything else, but major problems.

And if I'm right about an oil shock in the near future.

That's it. Say goodbye to the last 10 years.

Ask yourself. Does any of this feel natural? Does it make sense that the VIX is 10 when the market has been moving up on such low volume?


If it wasn't for central banks purchasing assets, there is no POSSIBLE WAY that the market could be up this high, and move up on low volume and no volatility with essentially no corrections.

It's insanity.

I'm not someone who is so stubborn to not be open to suggestions on how this could be mitigated.

Does anyone have any idea how the market won't crash???

I mean, $2T!!! Where is it gonna come from????
