    Default FTSE 100 crash soon.

    I can feel it in me water.

    Maybe 50% drop from 2015 highs. Probably a good buying opportunity soon.

    Caused by China, Oil prices, global conflicts, recent exuberance, etc.

    Maybe rise in interest rates and bond market / property crash as well. Possible Euro problems.

    Could get very nasty. My guess is late September / early October.

    Gold now somewhere near cost of production so should be a good buy.

    Good job Gordon Brown sold off those gold reserves when he did, or we'd be worried about that as well.

    So are you buying any put options? Or selling FTSE on spread betting?

    Too soon for a crash, it'll be another 2 or 3 years, no excesses yet!! China is just a pullback, first of all we need to go through a commodities recovery, once oil prices are hitting 120, and interest rates are up, then the crash will come.

    Oil is heading lower - maybe $40 a barrel.

    Commodities are falling.

    There are no more bricks for the pyramid.

    That's the crash. 2017 feels right.

    You might be right about the timeframe, who knows. I don't think you're right about commodities though, as there's a supply glut and a demand vacuum and neither of those things are likely to pass soon. If China continues to meddle (one of several possible triggers), and they will of course, a crash could be precipitated much sooner than 2-3 years. Also, UK banks have enormous exposure to China (one of the highest exposures of any country in the world), putting aside HSBC and StanChart.
