( Agent Starling chooses up the phone).
Representative Starling: Starling.
Hannibal Lecter: Well Clarice … Have the lambs stop screaming?
Representative Starling: Dr. Lecter.
Hannibal Lecter: Dont bother with a trace. I will not be on enough time.
Agent Starling: Where are you Dr. Lecter?
Hannibal Lecter: I have no strategies to contact you, Clarice. The worlds more intriguing with you in it. So you take care now to extend me the same courtesy.

Starling vs Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Wall Street is representative Starling. They are attempting to catch this serial killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, similar to they are attempting to forecast anything else on Wall Street. While Starling wishes to know where Dr. Lecter is, she was frightened by the thought of him as she peered around the corner that was throughout the space looking for him. Dr. Lecter is indicative of vicious bear markets that are inevitable to Wall Street and stock investing.
By the end of bad markets, the financiers (lambs) that are led astray scream till there is uncomfortable silence. They lose the capability to respond, or they die off. A lot of these lambs hinder their individual capital to a point of not being able to take part, as they did prior, or they never ever trust the equity markets once again. Wall Street, while afraid of these killers like agent Starling is, has a special relationship with these bad markets. As Lecter stated, he (bad markets) believed that the world is a much better place with representative Starling (Wall Street) in it. Wall Street survives, however lots of victims do not.
Like Dr. Lecter stated, theres no need to trace him as he wont be long. Bearish market are regular. They are routine, but historically they do not last as long as favorable stock markets. Starling knew the elusiveness of Hannibals brevity would do nothing to assist her. It leaves her in thriller like it does Wall Street and all investors each time.
To understand the bottom that we will eventually see from this blissful stock exchange state of mind ending, look no more than a previous scene in The Silence of the Lambs. A girl remains in the bottom of a short well. She is being starved and tortured. Her captor, serial killer Buffalo Bill, is prepping her for the same fate as her predecessors. The line that calls in the audience ears is, “It rubs the cream on its skin or else it gets the pipe once again.”.
At the bottom of bear markets, all investors comprehend their errors. The stock market forces them to take a humble position of what they have actually done incorrect, what details they selected to disregard and what cost they need to have paid. The feedback loop of Buffalo Bill is unusually similar to what the market reinforces at those junctures.
When I state investors, those are the survivors that made it out of the well. The line intimated that Dr. Lecter would be exercising his cannibalistic propensities that night with his previous acquaintance.
Bear stock markets are no different. They consume the exact same prey they always have. They eat the capital of people ready to be offered by Wall Street that believe “its various this time.” They eat the capital of people that are brand-new investors in the stock market who are excited by the prospect of getting rich quickly. They consume the capital of investors who havent done their research but have actually delegated their investments to “group believe” common at the time. Lasty, they eat the most popular investors of that era, as it is unusual for them to have the popularity they once had when blissful eras and manias end.
Stock exchange failure is on the horizon. We seem like Mark Baum in The Big Short at the home loan brokers conference. When asked if it was a possibility or a likelihood that his sub-prime loan losses would stop at 5%, the Option One CEO said it was an extremely strong possibility sub-prime loan losses would stop at 5%.
We think it is a low probability that the S&P 500 Index will make favorable nominal returns in 10 years. We likewise think its a no percent chance the S&P 500 Index will make money in genuine terms over the next 10 years. We believe this market will consume the capital of financiers.
Fear stock market failure,.
