Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Color me skeptical.

It seems to me that chart is saying:

  1.  A dramatic run-up is followed by a dramatic bust-up.

  2.  You can cherry pick 3 dramatic Up/Down stock movements that, more-or-less match along the time axis.

If the analyst had overlaid all Boom/Busts on record - and the records go back hundreds of years - then we might be able to see if the Time match is significant.  For example, does the Tulip Bulb craze in the Netherlands follow the same pattern?
