Economist David Rosenberg predicts the S&P 500 will crash a further 17%, and says we're currently 'reliving the summer of 2008'
David Rosenbergsaid in a recent op-ed that the S&P 500 could fall another 17% to 3,300 points.
- "The past two years represented a fake bull market built on sand, not concrete," he said.

"I feel like I am reliving the summer of 2008," he wrote in a Monday MarketWatch op-ed. "The stock market is following a familiar pattern of a recessionary bear market."
By late May 2008, before the extent of the problems of the subprime lending market were apparent, the S&P 500 had narrowly averted falling into a bear market, having dropped by 17 % at one point from the previous October's record high before recovering. But it wasn't long before the market went into near freefall, dropping by 40% by the end of that year.
The Rosenberg Research founder, who is a market veteran of over 30 years, has repeatedly warned investors to prepare for a bear market. He cited the S&P 500's low dividend yield as one reason he's expecting a 17% downturn from its current level of just under 4,000 points.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury is about 2.8%, meaning it's competing more effectively for long-term investor cash than the S&P 500. The last time the gap between the two was this wide was May 2018, Bloomberg data indicated.
Stocks surged over the past two years, but they've fallen sharply in 2022. Rosenberg said that equities' crash toward a bear market showed that the "past two years represented a fake bull market built on sand, not concrete."

The S&P 500 rallied 1.9% on Monday, but the futures market suggested the index could erase almost all of those gains at the opening bell later on as investors digest Snap's gloomy earnings forecast.
