The Hindenburg Omen Was Right Again: Stock Market Plunges

By Melissa Lafsky | October 6, 2008 11:18 am

DOW industrial averageYou may recall that nerves were jangled this summer over the appearance of a recent Hindenburg Omen—the mathematical formula that measures the probability of a stock market crash, and has reportedly predicted every crash since 1985. Granted, the appearance of an omen didn’t necessarily mean a crash was incoming—though a “confirmed” omen, such as the one in June, substantially upped the chances of the market tanking.

Well, it looks like the numbers didn’t lie.

  1. What did anyone expect? The investors have no confidence in these corrupt politicians. This bailout is just one more example of the indivisible handjob stroking irresponsible CEOs and CFOs with billions so that they can run the American economy even further into the ground. So much for Keynesian economics. If the goal is to stimulate the economy, why not give the money directly to the American taxpayers? The government could do twice as much good for the economy by returning half as much money (as the bailout requires) directly to the hardworking American taxpayers. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush administration.

  19. This is a great netbook. Almost the perfect combination. Only the bigger capacity battery would have been better, but there are models with half the battery life of this one.
    As it is not sold in Europe, I had to import. No problems with shipping and I even bought an extended international warranty a couple of weeks later.
