I'm not worried about Europe impacting US growth significantly. That being said I see a very good chance of another down range day on the US indices today Monday the 27th. There could easily be a mini crash. By mini crash I mean at the least enough of a percentage move to trigger circuit breakers. Such a surge in the VIX and a wide ranging day on the major indices like Friday usually produces some follow through. Especially in todays market with all the bots and high frequency trading.

If there is any bubble big enough to produce a sustainable crash it would probably have to be in an industry that represents a large share of GDP. The top industry as a share of GDP in 2015 was finance, realestate and insurance at around 20% of GDP. In 2006,2007 this sector was around 30% of GDP before the housing crash. I don't see any real "bubble" in any particular major sector. That's not to say there can't be a recession. There's nothing wrong with a recession. The stock market has been around resistance for awhile now and this could end up being the move that will drive it down for a short term correction at the least. I've been long Smith and Wesson SWHC which has turned out to be a great long for the week or so I've been holding. It was up Friday and is up even more pre-market over $26 from my mid $23 entry. I'm hedged with QID and want to trade any crash today with orders out to long YANG and FAZ.
