This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his Economic Collapse blog.

Editor’s Note: If the cable news anchors can’t be honest about bad news, they certainly aren’t EVER going to tell you if/when the sky is falling.

The whole system is undergoing systematic collapse and consolidation, and the job of the mainstream media is to keep the American public distracted and content on false reports that everything is A-OK. Are you going to believe them?

CNN Tells Americans That The Stock Market Is Not Going To Crash

by Michael Snyder

On Wednesday we witnessed the third largest single day point gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average ever.  That sounds like great news until you realize that the two largest were in October 2008 – right in the middle of the last financial crisis.  This is a perfect example of what I wrote about yesterday.  Every time the market crashes, there are huge up days, huge down days and giant waves of market momentum.  Even though the Dow was up 619 points on Wednesday, overall we are still down more than 2,000 points from the peak of the market.  During the weeks and months to come, we are going to see many more wild market swings, but the overall direction of the market will be down.

Sadly, the mainstream media is still peddling the lie that everything is going to be just fine.  So millions upon and millions of Americans are just going to sit there while their investments get wiped out.  In the six trading days leading up to Wednesday, Americans lost a staggering 2.1 trillion dollars as stocks plunged, and the truth is that this nightmare is only just beginning.

Early on Wednesday morning, CNN published an article entitled “Why U.S. stocks aren’t headed for a crash“.  I had to laugh when I saw that headline.  If CNN is going to make this kind of a claim, they better have something very solid to base it on.  But instead, these are the five reasons we were given for why the stock market is not going to collapse…

1. “The U.S. economy isn’t on the verge of a recession.”

This is exactly what all of the “experts” told us back in 2007 and 2008 too.  In America today, the homeownership rate is at a 48 year low, 46 million Americans go to food banks, and economic growth has slowed to a standstill (and that is if you actually buy the highly manipulated official numbers).  The truth, of course, is that things continue to progressively get worse as our long-term economic decline continues to unfold.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “12 Ways The Economy Is Already In Worse Shape Than It Was During The Depths Of The Last Recession“.

2. “China’s effect on U.S. is limited.”

Really? Go to just about any major retail store and start reading labels.  You will likely find far more things that were “made in China” than you will American-made products.  The global economy is more interconnected than ever before, and the Chinese stock market is the second largest on the entire planet.  Of course what is happening in China is going to affect us.

3. “American businesses are doing pretty well (outside of energy).”

Actually, they were doing pretty well for a while, but now things are turning.  Many large corporations are reporting declining orders, declining revenues and declining profits.  Unsold inventories are beginning to pile up and the pace of layoffs is starting to increase.  All of the things that we would expect to see just prior to another recession are happening.

4. “The Federal Reserve sounds cautious.”

This is laughable.  Ultimately, it isn’t going to matter much at all whether the Federal Reserve barely raises rates or not.  The era of “central bank omnipotence” is at an end.  Just look at what is happening over in Europe.  All of the quantitative easing that the ECB has been doing has not kept their markets from crashing in recent days.  Those that believe that the Federal Reserve can somehow miraculously keep the stock market from crashing this time around are going to end up deeply, deeply disappointed.

5. “Stock prices aren’t crazy high anymore.”

There is some truth to this last point.  Instead of stock prices being really, really, really crazy now they are just really, really crazy.  But as I have pointed out in many previous articles, the technical indicators are very clearly telling us that U.S. stocks still have a long, long way to go down.

But let’s hope that CNN is actually right – at least in the short-term.

Let’s hope that markets settle down and that things stabilize for at least a few weeks.

In order for that to happen, markets need to become a lot less volatile than they are right now.  The rollercoaster ride that we have been on in recent days has been extraordinary

The Dow traveled another 1,600 points during Tuesday’s trading session, adding to the 4,900 points the index traveled in down and up moves on Monday.

Markets tend to go up slowly and steadily when things are calm, and they tend to go down rapidly when things are volatile.

If you are rooting for a return of the bull market, you should be hoping for nice, boring trading days where the Dow goes up by about 100 points or so.  Wild swings like we have seen on Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are very strong indicators that we have entered a bear market.

What we have been witnessing over the past week is almost unprecedented.  Just check out this piece of analysis from Bloomberg

By one metric, investors would have to go back 75 years to find the last time the S&P 500’s losses were this abrupt.

Bespoke Investment Group observed that the S&P 500 has closed more than four standard deviations below its 50-day moving average for the third consecutive session. That’s only the second time this has happened in the history of the index.

Of course after such a dramatic plunge it was inevitable that we were going to have a “bounce back day” where there was lots of panic buying.  Initially it looked like it would be Tuesday, but it turned out to be Wednesday instead.

But if you think that the big gain on Wednesday somehow means that the crisis is “over”, you are going to be sorely mistaken.

Personally, I am hoping that we at least see a bit of a pause in the action, but there is absolutely no guarantee that we will even get that.

As the markets have been flying around, more and more Americans are becoming curious about the potential for a full-blown stock market crash.  The following comes from Business Insider

This one’s pretty easy: according to Google search trends, more Americans are searching for “stock market crash” now that at any point since the last crash.

Right now, search traffic for the term “stock market crash” is hitting about 70% of the most volume this term has ever gotten through Google search.

And so while this data doesn’t convey absolute search volume for the term, we do know that Americans appear to be looking for information about a stock market crash at the highest level in about 7 years.

Very interesting.

In addition, Americans are also becoming more pessimistic about the overall economy.  According to Gallup, the level of confidence that Americans have about the future performance of the U.S. economy is the lowest that it has been in about a year.

And remember – it isn’t just U.S. markets that are starting to go crazy.  All over the planet stocks are crashing and recessions are starting.  In fact, I can’t remember a time when there has been this much economic chaos erupting all over the world all at once.

So can the U.S. resist the overall trend and pull out of this market crash?

    My magic 8 ball says maybe we’ll pull out. I think the think is broken though.

      “The era of “central bank omnipotence” is at an end.”

      If only that were true. Sadly it is not. 🙁

      The NWO FED is still in control and will remain so for a long time to come. They are NOT out of ammo. In fact, events, including China’s market crash are the natural consequence of FED policy and actions.

      To wit: China is following Russia’s path to the bottom, FORCED to sell their US Bonds to shore up their currency. Remember all the financial morons who claimed that if Russia and China sold their US Bonds and “flooded the market” it would spell the end of the dollar ???

      LMFAO !!!

      China is selling as fast as they can to support the devaluation of the Yuan, and the result ??? According to an article at zero hedge, if they sell ALL of their US Bonds over the next year, ($1.1 trillion) it would be the REVERSAL of QE in America and it would raise US Bond rates 3% from the current level.

      Q: And what is the NORMAL, DESIRED rate for long term US Bonds ???

      A: 4%

      See what I mean ??? Don’t underestimate these mfkrs. They know EXACTLY what they are doing, and what they are doing to US. 🙁

    • sixpack says:

      Did I make a wrong turn on the internet and end up on CNN?

      • durangokidd says:

        This isn’t rocket science. Its basic economics and anyone with a half a brain and a No. 2 pencil should be able to connect the dots. Why ???

        They may as well be numbered !!! 1…2…3…4… 🙂

          • durangokidd says:

            CC: I don’t disagree with the narrative of that story. I would just point out that the FED has been trying to get the Chinese to make the transition to a service economy for ten years according to the AGREEMENT; and the Chinese reneged, because their appetite for the wealth and jobs flowing into China from the West was insatiable.

            After all “Wealth Is Glorious”.

            Like many investors who are very successful following a trend, they became arrogant and intractable: believing their own press that they were Number One.

            Recognizing that China was not willing to reign in their ambitions, and becoming a growing military threat to its neighbors, the FED pulled the plug on the American consumer, gutting China’s economy, and the BRIC’s in turn who had become too big for their britches.

            Think the BRIC Bank here.

            Excess world production will be transferred to Mexico now, as evidenced by the declining value of the Peso to the dollar, which will allow the NWO Multinationals to transfer those jobs and factories from China to Mexico and make even more profit per unit than ever before.

            Ford for example is retooling its Mexican plants to produce Rangers and Broncos, while paying Mexican workers pennies on the dollar for the Pesos they will receive.

            I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Peso fall to 30 to 1 to the dollar. 🙂

        When news pundits on TV say, “don’t worry; we won’t have a stock market crash!” you know we are in BIG trouble!!!

        Remember old Bush was telling everyone not to worry about the pollutants that rained down after 9-11? And all the time, there on his desk was a report from the USGS stating there was mercury, asbestos, all sorts of crap– they said it was worse than drain cleaner!!

        I read a book about this called, “An Air That Kills”– made me angry as hell!!!! Now– years later- all those heroes that went there to the trade center to help out, they’re having all these health problems related to 9-11.

        As P C Roberts stated, the US government has lied consistently about virtually everything since the year 2000.

  3. CommonCents says:

    “A clear sign was already pointed out on Monday when the stocks hit rock bottom with a 5% in red. It might not seem enough to the inexperienced eye, but we’re talking about billions of loss here. A sum that can’t be ignored when it’s the US money we’re talking about.” Alex Cain

    The signs are all around us. These psychos don’t want us to be prepared, they want us powerless.

    • passinwiththewind says:

      The results of the “flash crash” Monday showed some very interesting things to those that were paying attention.

      The self trader was locked out for the early selling. The reports said companies like E-trade and Ameritrade, etc, were unable to handle sells and caused their customers to be locked out, which in turn cost those traders even more money.

      Imagine being a day/week trader like a friend of mine, and when your own expertise says sell like hell, but you are locked out when you need them the most.

      It is rigged for the wealthy elite. Just like the over blown bond market. When retirees, that have put their majority of retirement, in to bonds, and they need to sell because of a possible crash, they are also locked out.

      The system is rigged to screw the average investor when it all implodes.

      I can see a possible crash of all financials to the point where the majority of small, average investors, are screwed blue by the banks and wall street. We all have already been screwed by the politicians. The new batch are already packing sand in the Vaseline jar.

      I don’t want to see it happen. Even as I predict the events coming next month, like many others do. I will not be jumping up and down celebrating with “I told you so”, like some here believe, when it happens. My own hard headed 80 year old pappa will loose his ass, and I definitely know what that means to the home front.
      However, the fact remains that the majority of folks will hold steadfast to their “love of money”, and not get out in time.
      Hell, 90% are not prepared with survival items to last more than a month or two. Some only a few days at most.

      We are at a crossroads of time and indications of some nasty events are on the horizon. Some call it fear porn and scare tactics. Yet, they seem to keep coming around and checking us out to see if we have the heads up on something new. Many will loose it completely when they realize it is too late because they played Ostrich, and with hundreds of thousands in paper, tied up or lost, they actually run out of the only necessary paper, TP.

      When the so-called fear porn becomes more than a warning and it is “in your face” reality, then they will be silent and turn that energy into scrambling and gathering.

      • Chasjan says:

        You nailed it Passing…also, Ron Paul said that a country that violates economic laws cannot avoid the consequences.
        To add a quote from Ludwig Von Mises, “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.” So, as our leaders take their marching orders they will keep printing, inflating, and hang on for the results….

  4. Fallen Ascension says:

    This will be the same media that will tell us in the future that ‘those’ people needed to be arrested and executed because they were against our dear leader and are terrorists.

  5. Jim in Va. says:

    I don’t believe the media or the government. Only my eyes. there is no trust in institutions anymore. Got to go with your gut.

    Charlie Daniels’ Open Letter to Congress: ‘You’ve Betrayed Your Country’

    I am a proud American who believes that America has held – and still holds – a very sensitive and special place in the affairs of mankind on Planet Earth. I believe that America has been divinely blessed and protected in our two centuries plus of existence.

    I believe that America has been a counter balance that has cancelled out a lot of tyranny, evil and conquest, and admittedly, we have made a lot of mistakes. But on balance we have exerted a certain Pax Americana in the international affairs of mankind.

    It took a lot of old fashioned guts for the Continental Congress to stand up to the world’s mightiest military and tell them that we demanded our independence, even at the peril of going up against a far superior force on land and sea, and with only a ragtag army of untrained citizens, many of whom had to supply their own firearms.

    It took courage above and beyond for Abraham Lincoln to push the country into a Civil War that he knew beyond a shadow of a doubt would divide this nation for decades.

    It took guts to give the order for American troops to storm the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, straight into the face of artillery and machine gunfire, wave after wave being cut to ribbons by German shore emplacements.

    The history of this nation is written in the blood and courage of men who stood in the face of overwhelming odds – politicians, soldiers, statesmen and ordinary citizens who sought to do the right thing regardless of the cost or the consequences.

    Well, ladies and gentlemen of the United States Congress, it seems that that particular pen has run out of ink. The courageous politicians that once championed this nation have been replaced, for the most part, by a breed of milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants who are supposed to be representing a constituency of citizens who have to live with the circumstances of their timid folly.

    You don’t even have the courage to face down an out of control president, even when he makes a deal with the devil. Don’t you bunch of timid capons even care what kind of world you’re leaving to your children and grandchildren, not to even mention the rest of us? Are you really party partisans before your parents and grandparents or even human beings?

    Be honest with yourselves a minute. Go into the bathroom and look in the mirror and ask the person you see this question: “Do I really believe that Iran will not use the money we’re releasing to them to finance terrorists to kill Americans, and, when, not if, but when, the Iranians develop their nuclear device, will they really use it against America and Israel?”

    You can’t hide from the truthful answer to that question forever, an answer will be required of you one day.

    You have allowed Obama to tilt the Supreme Court so far to the left that they’re little more than a shameful extension of the Executive Branch.

    You have talked for decades about the porous southern border but have done absolutely nothing about it.

    You have allowed cities in this nation to declare themselves sanctuary cities where they protect the worst of the worst criminal aliens, and American citizens are paying an awful price for your silence.

    You watch an impossible National Debt balloon completely out of control, knowing full well that a day of reckoning is coming that will seriously curtail the quality of life for coming generations.

    You allow corrupt government agencies like the IRS to run over the very people you are sworn to protect and allow the entitlement society to expand exponentially. All the while, you are actually entertaining the idea of raising taxes on those who still work and shoulder the burden.

    You compose a third of the constitutionally mandated ruling system,and you shirk your duty

    and allow this nation to move a little closer to the edge every day.

    Your ratings are in the single digits; your morals are in the gutter; your minds are on self-preservation; and somewhere along the way, you’ve traded your honor for political expediency.

    You’ve violated your oaths; you’ve betrayed your country; you’ve feathered your nests; and you’ve sat on your hands while an imperial president has rubbed your noses in the dirt time after time.

    You’re no longer men. You’re puppets, caricatures, jokes, a gaggle of fading prostitutes for sale to anybody who can do you a political favor.

    “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

    What do you think?

    Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

    God Bless America

    Oil went up 8.9%, which is crucial because it’s been on a downward trend for weeks.

    Even the Shanghai went up 5% yesterday, and right now its up 2.2%

    Perhaps the worst is behind is. It looks like Chinese intervention in their stock market is finally starting to bear fruit.

      A Note On Dead Cats Bouncing: Six Of Ten Largest One-Day Stock Gains Occurred During The 2008-09 Meltdown

      ht tp://davidstockmanscontracorner.co…t+AM+Wednesday

      “Six of the ten largest point gains in the history of the stock market occurred between September 2008 and March 2009. That’s right.

      During one of the greatest market collapses in history, the market soared by 5% to 11% in one day, six times.”

      personally speaking I think the recent market down turn is not
      “the big one”
      it is merely a precursor of worse things to come

      • Mr. Anonymous says:

        But did the stock market climb by big numbers for consecutive days in 2008?

        Plus, the Shanghai is up by up by 2.1%. It’s gone down a little but its still green. It also gained 5% yesterday aswell.

        And did I mention oil gained 10%?!

        GDP was also up better than expected. And durable goods also came back positive.

        I can understand a dad cat bounce, but there’s just too many variables to say that’s happening here, I don’t think it is.

      This entire crapload is built on overleveraged debt. There is no reason why stock prices should be above 1997 levels. ***** China dumped over $200B in US treasuries in 2015. Imagine if the other nations dump at the same time. US$ index will dip below 40 and the FED will be FORCED to double/triple interest rates in order to sell the treasuries that NO ONE WANTS.

      Now a new generation or group has emerged that has no sense of humor nor a spiritual bone about them, it seems.
      They are like the sheeple that will accept non-truths as long as it doesn’t poke at their ideology of life.

      Maybe the time has come that things have changed for the worse and most of the old school shtf’ers have moved on. Nothing ever stays the same except on the home front.

      I guess the atheists crowd like wwti have caused people to flee. I know it sure was a more friendly site until he showed up and began badgering eppe…continually. I don’t care that he badgers me, cause i have never ran from a person like him.

    There is a provision in the NDAA of 2012 that the federal government has granted itself the authority to use propaganda on Americans. While Americans are being propagandized and told everything is great and distracted with all that gay perverted garbage on cable television and told there needs to be more gun control. LOL they are being bankrupted and rolled financially.

  19. Anonymous and Mr. Anonymous there’s no real anonymity on the Internet. It’s not like the good old days when you could put on latex gloves to keep the cops from finding out who sent that nasty message or blew the whistle on some big shot. Go ahead and lick the stamps. It doesn’t make any sense to give out your e-mail address and then not bother to make-up a silly name like the rest of us. It’s entertainment and the names of the characters just make it easier to follow as we ease drop on each other or pass along our gems of wisdom, experiences, and delusions.

  20. This may have been a test, specifically designed to measure allot of things. Remember that Jade Helm is still in operation and it’s purpose is to test the human psyche??
    I’m not financial maven, but some of the data and trends that have been presented show historical trends. History ALWAYS repeats itself. AND, it follows the definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
    MSM is firmly in place to lie, obvuscate and spin. They intentionally spew and regurgitate the powers that be core lines: “All is well, All is well!”

    We will always survive as long as there is no attack from a foreign power and/or the government has the click money to transfer to the ebt/snap cards. PS: A trivia note for you guys that are in to numerology: The DOW’s peak on Thursday was 16,666,69 before backing off 11.92 points and closing at 16655.77. Is there anything here that John Haggee could make a million dollars with a new “Jesus is Coming” fear porn book, or are the numbers just coincidence? thanks

  23. If the establishment tells you something, especially if they make it sound like if it for your benefit: “Don’t Panic”, “Economic Recovery”, “Gun Control For Your Safety”, “Taxes For Your Benefit” you can simply figure its a lie.

    Now, understand that some statements have the possiblity of the truth not being the polar opposite. Like “Taxes For Your Benefit”. They might benefit you a little, but, its doubtful.

    After looking over the last 54 years of my life, 50 of which I paid attention to stuff, I realize: if media and government say it and it has political, social or financial implications, its either a complete lie or a distortion.

    You’ve heard “its like getting blood out of a turnip” before?

    Well now you’ve heard “its like getting the straight and skinny from the establishment”.

    Mr. Anonymous, you are 100% agency ass clownry. Nothing that you have said makes any sense. It won’t happen. Pull you head out of your ass sip sh….t.

    YOUR BANNED YOU AGENCY ASS CLOWN

    Yea I know it won’t happen. The last time it happened I lost my house, my car, and almost lost my business while i car broke down and I am busy roaming the streets of Houston sitting under a bridge with the homeless trying to figure out it I drink the bayou water that I wound get sick and die while the homeless had to five me bottle water, they are homeless I am a business owner and can’t feed myself much have water to drink..this is what’s happens when normalcy Bias is the rule as I sit there asking myself how the hell did I let this happen. This time it’s going to be alot worst. Look at the homeless in California.

    Aka,

    HCKS.

    Never again, this time I am ready
    I talk to scientist..they know what the government does not want you to know.

    For every dollar someone loses in the markets, someone else makes a dollar. But take heart! Those “dollars” are just digits on a screen–here today and gone tomorrow. Poof!

    Allright ! The web’s version of glenn beck, Michael Snyder; aka scaremonger; is got another market crash article out !

    Is it possible we are starting the next correstion that could drop the market 50% within the next 12 months ? yes.

    But it’s not going to crash overnite, 3 months or 6 months. if it is the next 50% correction starting, it’s going to go thru fits all the way down and by the way, november thru april are usually the strongest months; so continuing a big drop thru those months will be difficult.

    Now, if this is the next big correction; will it drop faster than previously(like it just did) ? yes, but that’s because more than ever, everything is the market trends together because of computers and the internet. all the computer programs are set to sell around the same settings, so you see those big drops and everyone knows instantly on their phone if the market is having a big sell off and then adds to the increasing selling rather than not finding out until lunch or end of day.

    i suspect we get a 20% correction by october(we’re at 8% now) and then the retail season kicks in and picks things up. although it looks like we’re about to fall off a cliff; that alway lasts much, much longer until it actually happens. i’m predicting we muddle thru 2015 and 2016 the next recession hits; look for your market crash then; not now.

    Well, I didn’t loose anything. In fact I have no stocks or shares TO loose!

    I did however have a chuckle to myself because I know someone with years of wealth invested in the share market. He lost 300k in a day in 2008 and this week he’s lost buckets and buckets more!! Karma for sure!!! That’s what should happens when selfish old people spend there lives taking advantage of others ….. KARMA!!! I’m going to buy me a bottle of ‘Seven Up’ and pop the top on that Mother Ducker like it was $10 bottle of Champagne!!!!

    There’s gonna be a big “Good job-it crashed” party at my house. Seven Up and sparklers for everyone!!, Yeehaa!

    Oil going up is good? How do you figure that? Pure BS! You must be making bucks off that. I read where gas was $1.56 a gallon in Ohio and a special going for .99 cents. Here it is $2.15, another manipulated ripoff. Everything is overpriced in this gouging toilet called corporate fascist America. You greedy bastards.

    Lena, i got news for you. Your totally completely wrong. The elite have some really bad plans. I dont even belive for a minute that we are going to have a 2016 Election. Its impossible. The conditions that we are in as Americans is very serious. I never pay attention to the stock market, i was told its their to literally stear thinking. What you must watch is the new laws that are being put into force that are literal attacks on the people and personal freedoms. Because the cabal cannot get its way, they keep crashing the economy, to enforce the NWO.

    Control the food, you control the people.

    Henry Hinze Kissinger.

    As promised, i will post another apocoliptical outcome from the scientist friend.

    Donal Trump, i believe is just a buffer to make people think that calapse wont commense. I am not sure who he is or if he is working for the interest of the American people. To be honest.

    PEOPLE PLEASE TAKE WHAT I TELLING YOU HERE SERIOUSLY.

    THIS IS THE REAL SITUATION:

    Attacks on me on this website is taking place for a reason, i am posting things that will happen, and some of it is already happening.

    I dont have any info on him. I dont believe that we will be inogurating another president based on what i have been told about the envionment, climate change, War, engineered calapse, and Nibiru, which is really out there and will be showing up to the naked eye on the western hemisphere, where we in the US, will see this thing up in the sky. If the cabal is unable to calapse the country, then they will be forced to answer, as to what that is, This was told is a litreal nightmare for the cabal. Because the alien disclosure will be forced on the people and they the cabl are not sure how the people are going to react.

    USASECURITYGUARD did not post right after my comment awhile back just for the hell of it. You may have noticed that he did not attack me, nor did i call him out and Agency Ass Clown. He basically backed up my comment because my information is the real information.

    Remember what he posted: You aint seen anything yet, you wait till that thing shows up in the sky and everybody starts to freak out. Then he says, i told you all to start getting ready and you didn’t do anything. Havent you all noticed that everytime i mention what the scientist tells me, immediately i start getting attacks one, after another, discrediting me, calling me names, accusing me of drug use, mental illness, etc. Dont you all see what is happening here. You wait till i really spill the beans. The British empire did not go to Africa for boardom, They went there to take Africa, because that continent is the highest area on the entire planet. Thats why it has so many animals on it. It stays out of water everytime Planet X, passes. So all the animals rush to higher ground. NO OTHER AREA ON THE PLANET HAS MORE LIFE THAN AFRICA, WHY?? WHY?

    What did the 2012 movie show us, that the big arks, landed on Africa in the end of the movie, did it not. They literally dropped the hint right out into the public and none got it, not even me until i was told about that goal in person. Do you guys understand me, its going to happen, period.

    Aka.

    HCKS.
