Since 1956, only one bull market (which ran from 1990, to 1997) has lasted longer than this one.
And we've almost equaled it.
This bull market is about six years old, which means a baby born at the start would be in kindergarten right now.
But what is there to justify that kind of surge?
During that last great bull market from '90-97, the Internet was invented. The U.S. economy was growing at 4% a year, and Alan Greenspan was thought of as a God.
Today, we're burdened with high unemployment, a shaky housing market, political turmoil abroad, and gridlock at home. The Federal Reserve is clueless, coming up with new emergency procedures ad hoc, unaware of the potential consequences.
Even the Fed itself has admitted its loose monetary policy has done nothing but create artificial asset bubbles in the housing and stock markets. Now, it's reining in asset purchases and gearing up for a rate increase.
Yet, the market soars to new highs on a routine basis.
The S&P 500 has skyrocketed 200% from a low of 666 in March 2009 to more than 2,000.
We haven't seen a 10% correction in three years.
Valuations have gotten so high that financial consultant Andrew Smithers believes we're in the third-biggest stock bubble in history.
Looking at key long-term measures, Smithers says U.S. stocks are now about 80% overvalued.
And since 1802 (when data was first tracked), there have been only five times when stocks have been more than 50% overvalued: 1853, 1906, 1929, 1969, and 1999.
Each one of those years marked the peak of a massive, once-in-a-generation stock-market bubble. And only two of those bubbles (1929 and 1999) were bigger than today's.
Smithers isn't the only one sounding the alarm, either.
Robert Shiller — a Yale University professor, cofounder of the Case-Shiller Home Price Index, and one the most influential people in economics — has created a metric that compares stock prices with corporate profits.
That metric recently climbed above 25 — a level that's only been surpassed three times since 1881.
Those years: 1929, 1999, and 2007.
Again, painful market crashes followed in each instance.
See what I mean, when I say this bubble is historic?
The question is what to do about it.
Well, I, for one, am going to profit...
The Bear Gun
Believe it or not, there's a way you could make money every time the market dips or plunges.
A lot of money, too. There's something out there I call the "Bear Gun."
Because when a bear market rears its ugly head, it shoots off.
Take a look at what the Bear Gun did the last time the market crashed...
This is a four-month period in 2008.
Notice how it's just humming along, trading sideways all through August and September.
Then October comes, the market crashes, and BOOM! The Bear Gun goes off!
That first shot up is a 60% surge over a 10-day period.
And all told, it's a 170% increase from Oct. 1 to the end of November.
So what's the Bear Gun doing now?
Well, here's what it's done over the past year...
Not a pretty sight, is it?
No, because that's how the Bear Gun works: When the market goes up, it goes down.
And this five-year bull market has done quite a number on it...
But that's exactly why it's poised for such huge gains going forward.
The market has overheated. Right now is literally the worst time to be buying stocks.
Everything is topped out. The only place for the market to go is down. That's why the "Smart Money" is shorting it.
They all got in back in 2008, when stocks were dirt cheap. When everyone else was selling, they were buying.
Now, everyone else is buying... And what do you think they're doing?
I'm telling you, this market is going to collapse and take everything down with it...
So take precautions now.
