Sounds silly. One of them predicted Thursday.

Also why would the EU break up next week?

It's October 3rd. The one guy is at least two days premature, but surely on October 7th we'll find out the other is Nostradamus' heir. Thanks for the heads up, I'll buy some more tinfoil just in case.

It says at the bottom of the article:

Correction: Several people have pointed out that Armstrong is not predicting that the crisis will be felt on October 1, 2015. Rather, hes forecasting that October 1st is a major turning point, but that the governmental financial crisis may not be felt until some months later.

I saw that. It's still too vague. What occurred that was the turning point? So at some point (maybe months, maybe more?) something bad will happen?

Apparently one of them thinks the market has a a 3,141 day long cycle, because that is 1000*pi in days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_A._Armstrong

There was supposed to have been a government shutdown that day

One of my favorites was the comment that said Jerusalem to Mecca is 666 nautical miles (Through the desert..). Now I want to go on google maps and find other "evil" distances!

edit: damn. Recihtag to 10 downing st is 677 mi, so close!

If you try to invest/act/make decisions based on what is rather than what may or may not be, life is generally far better.

It seems like the EU made it out of the week intact.
