Stock Prices: Are They For Real or is this a Crack-Up Boom?

The unprecedented and unrelenting rise in stocks has an ominous feeling to it. Like the legendary crack-up booms of bubble past. Also, we discuss the CBO’s projections of the next ten years of US deficits, that only grow and grow hitting an eye-watering $2.7 trillion/yr in 2034. Obviously something breaks along that path. Are you ready?

Welcome to this edition of Finance University with Chris Martenson and Paul Kiker.

Have you ever felt like the stock market is more of a riddle than a science, more of an enigma than a predictable cycle? Well, you’re not alone.

Recently, we’ve been seeing some peculiar trends that are making even the most seasoned investors scratch their heads. From the shift in the stock market from being a discounting machine to now acting as a liquidity measure, to the uncanny resemblance of Nvidia’s stock charts to the notorious tulip bubble mania and the internet craze, it seems like we’re in a whole new world.

But hey, isn’t that the beauty of the markets? They’re constantly evolving, throwing curveballs at us when we least expect them. Like that time NASDAQ closed below those all-important levels back in October, signaling a downside risk. Or when our old friend, the Fed, decided to cut rates, causing a flurry of repositioning in portfolios and injecting a fresh dose of momentum into the market. It’s like a rollercoaster ride, isn’t it? But don’t worry, we’re here to make sense of it all, one crazy market trend at a time. So buckle up, and let’s dive into the thrilling world of stocks and markets!
