The greatest financial downturn ever will happen this year, and investors will be taking the “biggest risk of [their] life” if they don’t sell now ahead of a complete market wipeout, said Harry Dent, founder of HS Dent Publishing.
Speaking to Michelle Makori, editor-in-chief of Kitco News, Dent said that risk assets will sell-off in waves, with the first wave seeing markets drop as much as 40% and the entire bear market phase totaling up to a loss of 90% for the S&P 500, not unlike what happened to tech stocks during the Dot Com Bubble bust of 1999.
