The Royal Bank of Scotland has advised clients to brace for a full-fledged crash in global stock and credit markets over the next three months as inflation paralyses the major central banks.

"A very nasty period is soon to be upon us - be prepared," said Bob Janjuah, the bank's credit strategist.

A report by the bank's research team warns that the S&P 500 index of Wall Street equities is likely to fall by more than 300 points to around 1050 by September as "all the chickens come home to roost" from the excesses of the global boom, with contagion spreading across Europe and emerging markets.

RBS warning: Be prepared for a 'nasty' period

Such a slide on world bourses would amount to one of the worst bear markets over the last century.

I would say that this company is not a bell weather predictor when it comes to the economy and banks. Their stock has fallen more than 50% in a little over a month. They sold their train business and are in the process of selling off another business. I would not buy this crappy stock at the current rate of $5 per share. It's at a 52 week low and if it does not get an influx of money that it is trying to borrow, it will be in bad shape. Banks like Goldman Sachs are holding up well with the credit mess but this outfit might go down the tube.

RBS is a nasty, nasty stock to own. They are just trying to cover their ass with all this doom and gloom in my opinion.
