Sacrifices Will Be Made
Financial sacrifices are so obvious and commonplace they are seldom acknowledged. Borrowing money on a credit card, mortgage or car loan to purchase something is typical. You have sacrificed future spending for use in the present. If the purchase, financed by debt, increases income more than the cost of debt service, the required principal plus interest can be repaid from future income. This is probably good. But if the purchase is consumed, future income is not increased and future discretiona

Interest Rates Walking On Narrow Ledge
There is a huge shock in store for those who have been lulled to sleep by a stock market that has become accustomed to no volatility and only an upward direction. And that alarm bell can be found in the price action of Bitcoin, which recently tumbled over 40% is less than a week. For the implosion within the cryptocurrency world foreshadows what will happen with the major averages as the Federal Reserve futilely attempts to stop monetizing the exploding mountain of U.S. debt. Interest Rates Walk

Imaginations of the Misguided
aheadoftheherd.com The end of the world as we know it It’s Christmas 2017 and North Korean Dear Leader Kim Jong-un is facing a crisis. Recently the United States, with UN approval, imposed the harshest round of economic sanctions yet on his reclusive regime. While North Korea has been sanctioned since 2006 due to continuing attempts to develop nuclear weapons, this new provocation by its sworn nemesis is the last straw for Kim, who feels the great legacies of his father and grandfather, Kim

Europe, Brexit and the credit cycle 
Europe’s financial and systemic troubles have retreated from the headlines. This is partly due to the financial media’s attention switching to President Trump and the US budget negotiations, partly due to Brexit and the preoccupation with Britain’s problems, and partly due to evidence of economic recovery in the Eurozone, at long last. And finally, anyone who can put digit to computer key has been absorbed by the cryptocurrency phenomenon.Just because commentary is focused elsewhere does not mea

The Fed's Lies Are Going to Cost Investors A Fortune in 2018
The Fed claims we’re not in a bubble. This, like the Fed’s claims inflation is too low, is hogwash. As I outline in my bestselling book The Everything Bubble: The Endgame For Central Bank Policy, the reality is that the Fed’s entire monetary focus is on papering over declining living standards in the US. Since 1971, real incomes are down. This fact stares us in the face: before that time, one parent worked and most families got by, today both parents work and rely on debt to get by. Indeed, the

  Peter Schiff Warns Of CRASH: ‘Everybody Is Going To Get Wiped Out!’
This coming crisis will hit everyone in the wallet. Money manager Peter Schiff, who accurately predicted the 2008 financial crisis, can already see the writing on the wall – and he says everyone is going to get wiped out. Schiff says that this time, gold will explode and the dollar will be wiped out. USA Watch Dog‘s Greg Hunter interviewed Schiff about the impending financial disaster we are facing. Almost ten years after the 2008 meltdown, Schiff had this to say: “I predicted a lot more than ju

Bubble Watch: The Everything Bubble is Riskier and Less Liquid Than Housing
As we keep emphasizing, the world is in an Everything Bubble. In truth, it is a bubble in sovereign bonds, created by Central Banks attempting to corner these markets via ZIRP and QE. However, because sovereign bonds are the bedrock for the current fiat financial system, if they go into a bubble, EVERYTHING goes into a bubble. Why? Because if you skew the “risk-free return” of the financial system (US sovereign bonds or Treasuries) ALL risk will adjust accordingly. Case in point, consider the l

Rig For Stormy Weather - Gary Christenson
What storm? The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high. Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! I Doubt It! Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world? If so,

Soaring Deficits Force Treasury into Foolish Gambl...
The Treasury opened the fiscal year 2018 with an October budget deficit of $63.2 billion. That is 37.9% larger than the $45.8 billion deficit in October of last year. The primary reason behind this surge in year-over-year deficits was a 21.6% increase in net interest expenses. The annual red-ink problem looks even greater when recognizing that the national debt is already over 105% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), at nearly $21 trillion, and with an additional $10 trillion projected to be added

  Common Gold Silver Pitfalls to Avoid 
Investing in gold and silver may seem simple and straightforward, however it is not. There are many types of ( quote, unquote ) "investments" in gold and silver you will want to avoid. Gold and silver dealers are no different from any other industry or crowd of people. Within our industry you will find many good honest professionals and organizations, but you will also find some bad outfits whose practices can be described as underhanded, even criminal.

Stumbling Into the Bubble Zone
Bubbles are a fact of financial life! We know about the Dutch Tulip Bubble and the English South Sea bubble.  Silly – right?  They couldn’t happen in this modern age! Think again! Consider the following examples, a few of many that could be shown. Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin. Amazon, Apple, Bitcoin and other stocks show vertical rises – classic bubble behavior.  They might implode soon or their prices could rise even higher.  There are few limits on crazy price moves and central bank currency p

“Like a snake eating its own tail, the equity market cannot rely on share buybacks indefinitely to nourish the illusion of growth." Chris Cole, Artemis Capital "Of course big bank stocks are 'overvalued' in terms of earnings or revenues, but do such measures really matter in a world without value?   When you have global central banks gunning all asset prices in a desperate effort to avoid a sovereign debt default starting in Japan and then Europe, pedestrian metrics like price/earnings ratios

America’s stagflation
The accumulation of monetary policy errors by the Fed is increasingly certain to culminate in the credit crisis that always marks the end of the credit cycle. Credit crises are the result of globally coordinated monetary policies nowadays, so the timing of the forthcoming crunch is not only dependant on the Fed’s actions, but is equally likely to be triggered from elsewhere. Candidates for triggering a global credit crisis include economic and financial developments in Europe, Japan and China.Th

Lemmings in Full Gallup Towards Cliff
It's official…the stock market has broken above 23,000, and its valuations should now scare even the most mind-numbed carnival barker on Wall Street.  The forward 12-month PE ratio is 18, compared to the 10-year average of just 14. The 12-month trailing PE for Pro-forma earnings, which takes into account non-recurring items that seem to recur ever quarter, is trading at 20 times earnings. But on a reported earnings basis—the number you report to the SEC under penalty of the law and according to

  Get Ready To Party Like It’s 2008 - Dave Kranzler
Apparently Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin, has threatened Congress with stock crash if Congress doesn’t pass a tax reform Bill. His reason is that the stock market surge since the election was based on the hopes of a big tax cut. This reminds me of 2008, when then-Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs CEO, Henry Paulson, and Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, paraded in front of Congress and threatened a complete systemic collapse if Congress didn’t authorize an $800

Gold Bullion Fails to Recover $1300 Even as Dollar Retreats Post-Fed, Kim + Trump Trade Insults
GOLD BULLION rallied almost $10 per ounce on Friday from yesterday's 4-week lows against the Dollar, but failed to recover what analysts called the "key pivot" of $1300 despite claims of safe-haven buying after Pyongyang threatened to test a nuclear bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The Yen rose faster versus the Dollar, erasing last week's 0.7% gain in gold for Japanese investors, as Kim Jong-un – leader of the regime in neighboring Nor
