We’ve had two 50% market drops in the last 15 years. Why can’t we have a third? And if it can drop 50%, why can’t it drop 75%? It can and it will ultimately. But in the meantime, all that money printing could still drive stocks higher. And central banks might take even more desperate measures to keep the game going.
The Japanese central bank is already buying stocks. It’s already bought all the government bonds. The European Central Bank is running out of bonds and government bonds to buy. Now it’s starting to buy corporate bonds. Why can’t that happen in America? Why can’t the Federal Reserve buy these assets?
When Bernanke was head of the Fed he said, “If we have to, we’ll buy anything. We’ll buy shares of gold mines.” If the Central Banks all over the world buy stocks, there’s really no top.-said Jim Rogers
