Brought to you by the CQF Institute.

Talk Overview
This talk discusses four big crash measures and various corrective actions to help understand these issues. Regarding stock market crashes, we have at least five issues:

- When is there a bubble in a financial market?
- Can you exit the bubble at a good price and time?
- Can you predict large crashes averaging a decline of about 25%?
- Small declines that occur for surprise reasons or are expected, e.g. Brexit, the Trump election and what can we do about them?
- How many such deadlines do individual and institutional investors expect and of what size?
