  1. I used to be suggested this web site by way of my cousin.

    I’m no longer certain whether this publish is written by way of him as no one else realize such distinctive about my trouble. You are wonderful! Thank you!

  2. Virtually all of whatever you assert happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this issue goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually 1 position I am not too cozy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your issue, allow me observe just what the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.

  3. The end of the turbulence is in sight (hopefully). We are now approaching the traditional seasonal bullish run Nov – April. I believe that the massive drop in oil price combined with vastly lower interest rates and credit thawing will result in a pretty good bull market over the short term. The next critical phase is to see how retailers do over the Christmas season. That will be the acid test.

  4. I notice that the chart back in 1929 did not have the 200sma. It would be interesting to see how it compared to the 2008 crash. Looks to me that the 1929 crash would not have held the 200sma in order to crash from 400 to 40 over 3 years. I am still worried that we could go much lower in 2008 also.
    Also, do you have a daily chart for 1929-1933? I have been unable to find one, would be interesting to compare to 2008.

  5. Yep, left me more afraid, banks failing, every continent way adversely effected, same drop in dow now would (hopefully not WILL) be 1750–yikes–and the only idea people can come up with is ‘let’s borrow some more and try and fix it!!’ In the 1850’s the US had NO DEBT, no income tax, and was ahead of the rest of world in about everything–what has ‘borrow and spend’ got us into?? Let’s run God out of our schools even out of the government–great idea, financially and morally bankrupt–the sooner we’re aware of what’s happening the better. He can definitely fix it, but what will it take to get us to turn to him? Now there’s a question. Answer that, and we’ll know where the bottom is.

  6. It is always great to hear the soothing voice of Dr Burns, if not a therapeutic voice.
    This video gives us comfort knowing that our forefathers had it much much tougher than what we are enduring today …. and I hope it does not get any worse … but again, the market is always right… the market know what is doing.
    Dr Burns … keep up your good work!

  7. Dear Barry,
    Thanks for the presentation. It is informative, as traders can take comfort that if the 200sma can stand firm then UNcle DOW would have to turn back.
    Best regards

  8. Dear Barry,
    Thank You for putting things in perspective. The Booms and Busts most often fuelled by excess emotion seem to make things better or worse than they actually are.

    All the Best !! Great Work..(AS ALWAYS)


  9. Good stuff- In such a short time you covered the last 80 to 90 years very well and gave a good overview – considering the time constraints the major points were pointed out. Thanks Barry keep it up Simon

  10. thanks Dr. Barry ,
    Great video,i did notice that the market went from around 1000 (1982) to over 14,000 ,seems like a hech of a bull market 🙂 take care Leonard

  11. The video doesnt highlight the differences between the current bear market and the previous bear markets. How long will this bear market last compared with the past bear markets how severe will it be would be an interesting topic to look into. An analysis will need to take more than the 10 mins allocated. One good point is that the video does highlight the run up to each crash. That is all my comments
