It's all speculation.
Disclaimer: What I know about the functioning of the stock market could be stuffed into a thimble, and that thimble would still float.
I do know this: We are operating in a debt-based economy. Debt is not necessarily bad if the debt holder, in this case governments or corporations, produce an asset, bring in enough money to service the debt, pay it's employees, and still make some profit. We have many, many companies that are not doing that. That's not good.
A whole bunch of make-believe money is being shuffled from here to there while nothing of any value is being produced. It's all smoke and mirrors.
I also know this: When the dominoes fall, the elites won't suffer. It's the guy in the middle who will get the life squeezed out of him.
