via Financial crash fears rise as stock valuation reaches high not seen since Black Tuesday | City & Business | Finance | Express.co.uk

Graham Hacche at the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) said:“In both cases, sharp market ­declines followed these high readings.”

He went onto say the cyclically adjusted price-earning ratio (the Shiller CAPE ratio) has risen above 30 which shows “markets may have become increasingly vulnerable to shocks.”
