This was the biggest drop in four months and brings the Dubai Financial Market General Index to its lowest level since July 20, according to Bloomberg. Dubai, which like many Middle East exchanges is open from Sunday to Thursday, led a broad sell-off in Middle East stocks, as markets in Israel, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia also sold off on Sunday. Hisham Khairy, the Dubai-based head of institutional trade at Mena Corp. Financial Services, told Bloomberg that, "Global markets are all selling off and its that weakness were tracking. Theres still more blood to come." Last week, US stocks fell more than 2.5% across the board, with the S&P 500 falling 3.1% and the Nasdaq losing more than 4%. And so after last week's ugly action, markets around the world still look unsettled;US futures trading opens at 6 p.m. ET. Here's the one-day chart of Sunday's trading in Dubai.

And rising interest rates don't tend to be helpful to stock prices. So that's one scenario for stock prices over the next several years: Stock prices revert toward long-term averages The Fed eases off the gas Corporate profit margins revert toward their long-term averages (hopefully because companies finally start to share some of the wealth they create with the people who create it) Consumers continue to save money and work off debt Interest rates rise If any of those things happen, stock performance will likely be poor for many years. http://www.thestreet.com/story/12910853/1/prize-linked-savings-accounts-coming-to-your-bank.html But that's not the disaster scenario. That actually seems like a perfectly reasonable scenario. The disaster scenario is that some or all of these measures do not just revert toward their long-term averages but instead revert beyond their long-term averages the way they almost always have before. If we go from an era with spectacularly high stock prices, spectacularly low interest rates, spectacularly high profit margins, and spectacularly stimulative Fed policy to an era characterized by the opposite (like the 1970s), the sharp crashes and relatively quick recoveries of 2000 and 2008 will seem like brief, happy corrections. It took about 25 years for the economy and market to correct the extremes of the http://wdel.com/story.php?id=63200 1920s. It took another 25 years to fully work off the (much lesser) extremes of the 1960s. The extremes of the late 1990s, which have extended into the 2000s and, now, the 2010s, are, by some measures, the most extreme in history (including the 1920s). It should not come as a surprise, therefore, if it takes us as long, if not longer, to work them off. (Pictures are worth a thousand words, so please see the charts below...) Stock prices are extraordinarily expensive. Today's cyclically-adjusted P/E ratio is the highest price-earnings ratio in 135 years, with the brief and temporary http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/10/07/us-russia-economy-spending-defence-idUSKCN0HW1H420141007 exceptions of 1929 and 2000. http://www.businessinsider.com/stock-price-crash-2014-10
