"listen I'm not here for 5%"

I'm Canadian. Short away at the banks, no need to apologize for taking from the cartel.

"You can't have negative loan loss provisions forever" - the fact they even exist should send shivers down your spine.

Really appreciate Steve Eisman coming on to explain in depth his thinking. Very valuable interview.

I'd like to see STeve with the same insane eye makeup the anchor has on.

I think the level of denial among Canadian financial "experts" is an alarming red flag.

This man is simply betting that things should go in the direction that they appear to be going. A normal credit cycle. Not a calamity. Even this suggestion is met with resistance. In many cases, vitriolic resistance. Nobody is able to argue why this man is incorrect, I'm simply hearing smears and denial.

This is cause for concern. Mortgagees should prepare themselves, especially if you were conned into a variable rate. HELOC users should be at red alert.

This lady is very intelligent to know how to ask good questions with this guy and keep her cool. She seems very knowledgeable.

Steve was spot on, it is going on right now.

He's going for at least 30+% given it could take a few months to years to realize

Living in Vancouver I don't agree on housing. Vancouver will not have a soft landing, it will be a crash landing. Toronto has a diverse economy and won't be as bad.

This guy knows what is up... And down. 🏁

You don’t have to apologize that much just because you are talking to a Canadian!

Author — Jay Cosmos


It would be great to have both Steve Eisman and Brian Belski in a room talking about the canadian banks!

I sensed this coming. I'm a Canadian living abroad. Canadians need to wake up.

Ok, so he's had six more months of paying 5% divvys on his shorts....and his position is a further 5-10% in the red....I wonder how long he can keep this up???

Canada is way over extended and overly reliant on energy and the housing market. Combined with excessive government debt and a rapidly declining economy trouble is soon ahead.
