Hussman Funds/John Hussman/January 2020

Given current overextended extremes, the entire gain of the S&P 500 since early-2018 could be given up in a handful of trading sessions.”

USAGOLD note:  Hussman posts a somewhat shocking rundown of blue chips stock performances in 1973-1974. (One example – General Motors: -71.2%.) And starts this typically in-depth analysis with a short notation:  “We forget.”
