And looking at the past 100 years of market data, he’s forced to conclude that the stock market is due for a whopper of a correction — one that could happen at any moment…

Over the past century, the market has had 8 “good” and “bad” cycles, all of them roughly equal in duration. The cycle we’re currently in is the rosiest “good” cycle on record – and it’s looking very long in tooth.
