Byron Wien Warns “Oblivious Markets” Of 20% Correction

Zero Hedge [1]
Feb 7, 2013

Just as markets can stay irrational longer than traders can stay solvent, so Byron Wien warns all the market-watching self-confirming bulls thatĀ “markets slough off bad news until they don’t.”Blackstone’s top-man fears the “oblivious markets” are missing the point that nothing has been solved and that a “big battle between entitlement cuts and raising the debt ceiling” is coming. Shrugging off the anchor’s insistence that earnings have been ‘pretty good’, Wien states reality as expectations are rolling over and performance following. With people complacent and investors euphoric (ignoring European risk re-emergence and depression and Middle East tensions), Wien’s brief clip concludes with hisĀ expectation of a 200 point correction in the S&P 500 in H1 2013.
