Scary 1929 market chart gains traction
Opinion: If market follows the same script, trouble lies directly ahead

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (MarketWatch) ó There are eerie parallels between the stock marketís recent behavior and how it behaved right before the 1929 crash.

That at least is the conclusion reached by a frightening chart that has been making the rounds on Wall Street. The chart superimposes the marketís recent performance on top of a plot of its gyrations in 1928 and 1929.

The picture isnít pretty. And itís not as easy as you might think to wriggle out from underneath the bearish significance of this chart.

There is a HUGE difference between then and now. Back then, they didn't have a massive injections of QE into the market to keep companies claiming a profit through non-GAAP from collapsing. The Dow and NASDAQ will not be allowed to fail. It would mean that all the geniuses running things, like Mr Yellen, were wrong.

Very true. The Fed has learned a lot about financial chicanery since 1929.
