According to Bloomberg, famous stock market pundit Martin Zweig has passed away.
Zweig (who was either 70 or 71) was a technical analyst, newsletter writer, and money manager, who famously called the crash of 1987 3 days before it happened.
In an interview on Louis Rukeyser’s Wall Street Week on October 16, 1987, Zweig predicted a short violent drop in the market that would be reminiscent of 1929.
Here’s the video. The whole thing is worth watching, but Zweig starts his call at the 6:44 mark.
