As inflation accelerates and seemingly secure markets like Chinese property continues to destabilise, investor concerns of an impending market crash are growing, but it can be easier to make money in a disaster than a thriving economy.
The ‘biggest crash in world history’ could happen as soon as this month, according to the author of ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ Robert Kiyosaki. He tweeted: “China’s Evergrande Group cannot pay. Valuation of properties fake. Will real estate crash spread to UK? Yes.” This daunting warning has left many investors fearful, especially since the month of October has a track record for stock market crashes, like the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and infamous Black Monday of 1987.
