Marc Faber on asset bubble

Marc Faber is well known for his various comments during major events in the markets. In June 2017, he said that he believes there is a bubble in US stocks and in various asset classes. In particular, he pointed out that the Fed’s persistent lower interest rate and money printing are mainly responsible for these bubbles.

He said that the asset bubble will continue in the global economy as long as central banks continue their money printing activity. In October 2014, the Fed ended its quantitative easing program, which it started after the 2008 global financial crisis. However, other central banks are still continuing quantitative easing, which is a major concern for Faber.

He also believes that too much optimism about the US economy (SPX-INDEX) and huge expectations for policy reforms have inflated various stock prices in the US (VFINX) (VOO). He warned that mishandling of these asset bubbles could cause a great disruption in the global market.
