OK, let’s keep this fast and breezy.
First, here is the headline Marc Faber just announced on TV this morning:
Marc Faber: S&P is set to crash 50%, giving back 5 years of gains
Let’s provide a little bit of context for that market call. But rather than have me spill a lot of words about the folly of forecast, let’s just use his own prognostications to provide some context here:
“Asset Markets Will Crash Like Titanic” -Bloomberg, January 6, 2016
“Dr. Doom calls bubble, adding to gloomy calls” –CNBC, Nov 2, 2015
“2014 crash will be worse than 1987’s” Marc Faber –CNBC, April 10, 2014
Marc Faber: “Look out! A 1987-style crash is coming.” –CNBC, August 8, 2013
Marc Faber: “We Could Experience A 1987-Style Crash This Year” –Business Insider, 5/10/2012

If you think following these forecasts can make you money (other than fading) you are a better man than I.
