Speaking to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) this morning, independent stock trader Alessio Rastani predicted that a European market crash is imminent and many investors know it.
"This problem cannot be solved," he said. "I'm fairly confident that the Euro is going to crash, and it's going to fall pretty hard."
Rastani added: "Personally, I've been dreaming of this moment for three years. I have a confession, which is, I go to bed every night and I dream of another recession. I dream of another moment like this. Why? Because people don't seem to really remember. The depression in the 30's wasn't just about a market crash. There were some people who were prepared to make money from that crash. I think anybody can do that."
"What I would say to everybody is, get prepared. It's not the time right now to, wishfully thinking the government's going to sort things out. The governments don't rule the world. Goldman Sachs rules the world. Goldman Sachs does not care about this rescue package, neither does the big funds."
"In less than 12 months, my prediction is, the savings of millions of people is going to vanish. And this is just the beginning."
