Recently, Pishevar unleashed a 21-hour tweet storm in which he confronted a wide range of pressing issues. One of the themes that he addressed is the likely consequences that will flow from the Fed-fueled asset bubble in both real estate and equities. Shervin Pishevar has been one of the leading critics of the irresponsible and highly experimental policies of the country’s central bankers. He has been pointing out for the better part of five years that flooding the markets with liquidity and cheap credit is a surefire way to precipitate a bubble. And he now believes that is exactly what we are experiencing in equity markets.
Pishevar has put an actual number on the current inflation of asset prices. He says that the Dow Jones Industrial Average is due for an approximately 6,000-point correction. However, Pishevar is quick to note that corrections of much larger magnitude, on a percentage basis, have occurred frequently throughout the history of the U.S. stock market. He says that it is fully possible that the markets may experience a correction of up to half of the total market capitalization, an event that would send the global economy reeling.
Pishevar warns that a continuation of the easy-credit policies of America’s central bank will almost ensure such an outcome.
