The oil market price is setting up for one heck of a fall. Now, could this large oil correction cause the next stock market crash? Time will tell.

Furthermore, there was a previous trend in the 1980’s that suggests we are setting up for a MAJOR stock market crash. I discuss the details of the current record net commercial short positions and the similar setup that took place during the 1980’s in my newest video, Will The Coming Big Oil Price Drop Cause The Next Stock Market Crash?
Here is one of the charts discussed in the video presentation above:
As we can see in this COT Report (Commitment Of Traders), the commercial net short positions jumped from 648,000 to 674,000 in the past week.
