John Hussman's New Presentation Clearly Explains Why The Stock Market Is Frighteningly Distorted

John Hussman 4

John Hussman of Hussman Funds has maintained a bearish slant toward the market for quite a while.

"I'm  known as somewhere between permabear and prophet of doom," said Hussman as he opened his presentation during Mish Shedlock's Wine Country Conference.

"I'm actually an inordinately optimistic person who actually believes there is virtue in finance," he added.

In his thought-provoking presentation, Hussman very clearly argues that distortions in the financial markets have created an environment with very low prospective returns.

"This fragile equilibrium that we're in because of monetary policy, because of fiscal policy, and because of the combination of yield-seeking plus the apperence of yield through forward operating earnings because profit margins are elevated -- this creates an environment where stock returns prospectively are very low," he says.

"That's really the point of QE," he reiterated. "It creates discomfort as a search for yield."

Gold Is Getting Slammed After Goldman Tells Clients To Short It

Gold is having another rough day today.

The metal has been under constant selling pressure all morning, but it's really taken a significant leg lower in the last hour or so, as the chart below shows.

Right now, it's down 1.8 percent to $1557 per ounce, just off its lowest level of the day.

This morning, Goldman Sachs commodity strategists – who have been bearish on gold in the medium term – recommended clients go ahead and short gold outright, targeting $1450 per ounce by the end of 2013.
