Just me or is there an increasing number of companies going bankrupt?

I think yesterday I saw the 9th small medium utilities company going bust this year?

Car companies slashing jobs (due to reduction in car use really so not surprising), Apple figures slashed due to China, Macys down 18% due to poor holiday sales.

I'm not surprised about bricks and mortar stores but if Q1 earnings for the tech companies has many missed targets or poor returns, that'll be a real sign.

Eventually you'll be right.

The yield curve is suggesting a recession is coming to the US in late 2019 or 2020.

Since we're talking about financial indicators, I heard that around Christmas there was a very unusual indicator thrown up on the s and p curve. Apparently this has happened 16 times in the past, and every time the market has grown 25% in the following year. I know that's about as vague as it gets, I'll try dig out the actual name of the thing. But it could equally indicate a good year ahead.

I expect an international recession to hit end of 2019 to impact the market further.

I think I am right in saying that you have just bought or are buying a property currently. I assume this is why you are jumping on anyone who has anything negative to say about the property market. Property is at the upper limits of affordability . Either wages are going to start climbing significantly or property prices will go down. We're too much of an open economy to have long term stability especially at the upper limits of affordability. This is based on common sense .

Mod Note

While we're critiquing contributions, it's only fair to point out that some of the most recent posts are way below the standard expected here in A & P.

Yet more posts belong in the economics forum more than A & P.

Please up the standards.

So....

Welcome to the accommodation & property thread discussing the Property Market 2019.

Affordability is really only an issue in the capital though.

To be honest I agree with you. But it seems many don't. Apparently we have a housing crisis and a homelessness crisis. I'd probably be homeless myself if I'd rather be on the streets or in emergency accommodation than live too far from my mammy.
