Chart Predicts Every Market Crash in History
The Fed blows bubbles. Then it eventually pops them. Where are we in the cycle? Bill Bonner writes This Has Predicted Every Market Crash in History. I recreated the chart in Fred and added trendlines. But let's tune in to Bill Bonner. “Buy the dip” has worked for the last 38 years. And now, investors are more than 100% convinced that it will work again. But they are wrong. Every major stock market decline and every recession in the last 100 years was preceded by the Federal Reserve raising sho

“There are folks that are saying you know what, I don’t care, I’m going to lock in my retirement now and get out while I can and fight it as a retiree if they go and change the retiree benefits,” he said. – Executive Director for the Kentucky Association of State Employees, Proposed Pension Changes Bring Fears Of State Worker Exodus The public awareness of the degree to which State pension funds are underfunded has risen considerably over the past year.

Portrait Of A Stock Bubble - Dave Kranzler
Just like the Dutch Tulip Bulb bubble, internet stock bubble, and the mid-2000’s financial asset bubble, the current stock market is no longer a price-discovery mechanism. It has deteriorated into a venue in which Central Bank-manufctured liquidity – in the form of printed currency and credit creation – has flooded into the system, enabling investors to chase the few stocks rising in price at the highest velocity (click to enlarge, graph on the left sourced from Jesse’s Cafe Americai

The Fed Will Likely Chicken Out on Planned Rate Hikes
The Austrian Business Cycle Theory tells us that the injection of new money created through bank lending out of thin air causes an artificial boom; and that the slowdown of credit and money creation, let alone a decline in available loanable funds, turns the boom into bust. Recent bank lending data in the US show a noticeable slowdown in bank lending rates, setting in around autumn 2016. Does it signal trouble down the road?There is no easy answer to this question. Various forces are at work. As

Hugo Salinas Price: The World Will Hyperinflate Into A Gold Standard - Dave Kranzler
Hugo Salinas Price – website link – posted a couple of comments on Stewart Dougherty’s guest post earlier this week. I concluded that his insights needed to be shared on the front of this blog and he gave me permission to edit them together to make them easier to read for everyone. “I know my comment was complex but I wanted to condense the thoughts I have developed over three decades:” I would like to take this chance to share a few of my thoughts on this.

Exit, Hope and Change
Yes, that was a gag. By now, anyone in this country still of sound mind knows that Barack Obama presided through eight years of remarkable continuity — of changeless conditions that left a great many hopeless. As the days of his tenure dwindle, what do we make of the departing 44th president? He played the role with cool-headed decorum, but that raises the question: was he just playing a role? From the get-go, he made himself hostage to some of t

Party Like It’s 1999: The Stock Market Is A Propaganda Tool - Dave Kranzler
The degree and level of propaganda now flowing from the Establishment and the Establishment-controlled mainstream media is on par with that of the old Soviet Politburo or German Third Reich. In fact, I’d confidently propose that this point is incontestable. With modern technology and regulations which have made Fed operations and accountability tragically opaque, I have zero doubt that the Fed and the Government have managed to turn the stock market into another propaganda tool.

Credit cycles and gold
The Trump shock produced some unexpected market reactions, partly explained by investors buying into a risk-on argument,equities over bonds and buying dollars by selling other currencies and gold.This is because President-elect Trump has stated he will implement infrastructure investment and tax-cut policies. If he pursues this plan, it will lead to larger fiscal deficits, and higher interest rates. The global aspect of the markets recalibration focuses on the strains between the dollar on one s

The Global Cash Ban is Not Over... It's About To Intensify
The War on Cash is not over… it is about to intensify. The Trump Presidency has distracted from the next major move to be implemented by Financial Elite. That move is a cash ban. Cash, particularly physical cash (as in bills and coins) is a huge problem for insolvent banks. Indeed, it is the ONLY problem they have yet to address. If you’re a large bank and you’re overleveraged due to excessive assets to capital ratios (particularly assets that are at risk of losing value or default) there are th

Synthetic Gold Leasing: More Details Regarding The “Precious Metals” On Chinese Commercial Bank Balance Sheets.
More proof the “precious metals assets” on Chinese commercial bank balance sheets have little to do with the “surplus” gold in China’s domestic market. One of the topics about the Chinese gold market that has not been fully illuminated is the “gold” on the 16 Chinese commercial banks’ balance sheets. At the end of 2015 the aggregated “precious metals assets” on the bank balance sheets accounted for 598 billion yuan (RMB), which translates into approximately 2,682 tonnes of gold – if all the prec

The serfs have rebelled – Europe next
Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom described how personal freedoms are progressively eroded by the state in the name of the common good.His warning is more associated with totalitarianism and dictatorships, than modern democracies, but the statist attitudes he warned about still apply today and lead to the same loss of personal freedom and increase of state control. In the main, the serfs are patient and tolerant of their masters, but in a democracy, the establishment behind the state risks being chall

WGC’s October Gold Investor: Gold and the New Normal
Yesterday, the World Gold Council (WGC) released a new edition of Gold Investor, its publication on gold market. What can we learn from the report? The latest issue contains a few interesting articles about the precious metals market. Two pieces are about the key new initiatives, such as the Shari’ah standard for gold, which aims to provide guidance on the use of gold in Islamic financial products and transactions, or the suite of exchange-traded and centrally cleared precious metals products ca

Adopt a gold-backed dollar This is what happened the last time we tried
OPINION Marketwatch/Benn Steil – Council on Foreign Relations/8-11-2016 “For all its problems, the current dollar-based non-system has been far more resilient than the Bretton Woods gold-exchange standard, which never operated as White intended. And the real alternatives — a classical gold standard, in which interest rates are driven by cross-border gold flows; or a supranational currency, like Keynes advocated at Bretton Woods — are likely to remain too radical politically. We are, therefore, a
