    The reasons to be bearish on the stock market now are swamping the bull case

    Market bulls continue to see strong U.S. GDP growth, a tight labor market and surging corporate profits. A once-pristine fundamental backdrop suddenly looks tarnished, as worries accelerate that economic growth may have peaked, political headwinds are forming, and rising interest rates will stand in the way of future fiscal stimulus from the Trump administration. All it took was a negative headline for Apple about iPhone demand and news about a lingering regulatory issue for Goldman Sachs to send Wall Street into another tailspin.

    Bull market heads into fourth quarter at highs, but faces hurdles in rising rates and valuations

    The S&P 500 hit another record high last week and is ahead by nearly 10 percent for the year, confirming its longer-term uptrend through August and now most of September — historically challenging months. The market during this economic cycle has not tolerated stocks much above this valuation with bond yields in the 3 percent area. If the stock market were football, then entering the fourth quarter it would be the bulls' game to lose, with most of the pregame question marks about their stamina and halftime worries over roster depth answered assertively — in the form of a big lead and few obvious weaknesses.

    Stephen Diggle, who co-founded a hedge fund that made $2.7 billion on volatility wagers during the global financial crisis, isn’t betting on similar fluctuations now even as central banks begin to roll back years of extraordinary stimulus. Governments and central banks worldwide now see themselves as “guardians of the capital markets” and will always be ready to provide liquidity to prevent a repeat of the unprecedented price swings a decade ago, said Diggle, the chief executive officer of family office Vulpes Investment Management. “Generally we’ll have less super liquidity in future, so I expect generally slightly more volatility,” said Diggle, who is based in Singapore.

    Even if you bought the market the day before Lehman collapsed you'd still be up a whopping 130%

    Buying on the eve of the Lehman crash would have left an investor underwater even three years later. Before Lehman Brothers collapsed, before AIG buckled, before the financial system fully broke down and was bailed out, stocks were already in a bear market. Bank stocks had hemorrhaged more than half their value over the prior year and a half, and the U.S. was nearly a year into a bruising recession.
