Fast-Rising Margin Debt Screams an Even Faster Reversal Ahead

Today's U.S. stock-market margin debt is 47% higher than the amount before the 2007 DJIA top

by Bob Stokes
Updated: November 17, 2017

 


U.S. investors are borrowing to buy stocks like NEVER BEFORE. The most recent NYSE data shows that margin debt reached a RECORD $559.6 billion in September. But -- this tells only part of the "leveraged to the hilt" story ...

Can you imagine using 100x leverage in the stock market? This is NOT a fantastical notion. Here's a reminder of an Elliott Wave Financial Forecast quote from the video:

Many hedge funds skirt the Regulation T provision limiting the amount of credit that investors can borrow to 50% of the purchased asset’s value. “Little by little,” hedge funds have gotten around Regulation T, states derivatives trader David Von Leib. With the help of “increasingly sophisticated alternatives,” Von Leib reveals that leverage up to 100-to-1 is now possible. 

Massive leverage can be a blessing when a financial market is going an investor's way -- but an awful curse when the market turns.

Now is the time to learn what our Elliott wave analysts are saying about DJIA's chart pattern. It's analysis you don't want to miss.
