    I don’t expect a crash particularly soon. I think there is almost no chance of predicting it in advance (once a near term crash is predictable, everyone will sell and cause it to happen immediately). I expect the market to go up through the end of the week. But once this quarter’s futures expire on Friday, anything could happen.

    I don’t think the market will crash without a catalyst. Iran’s oil exchange looks like it won’t open next week, so you’ll have to wait for something else. I consider a true one-day crash to be unlikely, but I have my long-dated puts just in case. It’s far more likely that prices will just drop at a moderate pace for most of the year (once they start actually going down). Probably a 10-20% drop from the peak to the end of the year. Although if hedge funds start blowing up, anything could happen. Watch the BOJ, ECB, and FED carefully.

    Donna,

    This market can crash tommorow, or it can take 6 months. No one knows!…except for sylvia Browne.
