I have to admit, some days there isn’t as much to write about as others.  It’s not often, but in a world of perpetually controlled financial markets and relentless “fake news,” “eyes of the storm” are often witnessed.  This is particularly the case in gold and silver, where the Cartel is desperately trying to push prices below the 200 week moving averages they surpassed last week, for the first time since Election Day; such as yesterday, when first the “8:00 PM algo”; and then, the 819th “2:15 AM” EST raid in the past 937 trading days this morning, followed up yesterday’s prototypical COMEX-opening attack – amidst a sea of bullish PM news – in an attempt to divert attention from the ominous issues such a powerful technical achievement portends.

But rest assured, truth-seekers, the “PiMBEEB” threats are no less virulent today than at yesterday’s COMEX open; let alone, a few hours ago, at 2:15 AM EST; and mathematically, they are guaranteed to continue worsening, as history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme rages through its cancerous, terminal stage.

Amidst this morning’s news and market “calm,” I figured I’d point out a few disturbing trends that stand out amidst the relentless, propagandistic hype – supported principally by 24/7 market manipulation; that those simply watching the PPT-supported “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” are likely missing.  Such as, for example, the hundreds of “hedge bombs” going out of business each year, because their “genius” portfolio managers can’t understand that the only equity “bull markets” are in the PPT-supported large-cap indices, as opposed to the vast majority of wildly underperforming smaller stocks.

For one, we have the energy sector – which despite relentless “production cut” hype, continues to dramatically underperform the market.  This week’s news that OPEC deal compliance is plunging, with just three months remaining on a deal that has yet to make a dent in record global crude inventories; not to mention, yesterday’s news that non-OPEC Brazil’s production rocketed higher by 14% in the past year; only proves the point further, of why the energy ETF has been steadily declining since the fraudulent “Trump-flation” trade took hold.

And what more fitting day to present the nearly identical chart of the ongoing “retail Armageddon” – as depicted by the equally dramatic underperformance of retail stocks – than the day Ralph Lauren announced the closure of its landmark Fifth Avenue store?  Not to mention, as Zero Hedge highlights, the fact that if Amazon.com stock rises another $100/share, Jeff Bezos – the man who is single handedly destroying the retail and commercial real estate industries – will be the world’s richest man!

And how about the collapsing automobile industry, as symbolized by the stock of Ford – who’s CEO, last month, proclaimed that industry-wide sales had “plateaued,” potentially for years to come?  This, as the world’s biggest subprime bubble – in automobile loans (arguably, tied for that honor with student loans) – is showing ominous signs of bursting.  And by the way, this week, Tesla’s market capitalization surpassed both Ford’s and GM’s, to become America’s largest automaker.  Considering that Tesla has just 30,000 employees, compared to the 410,000 employed by Ford and GM combined, this is an equally ominous economic trend.

And finally, the “world’s most systematically dangerous institution” – which the IMF deemed Deutsche Bank last June.  As you can see, the stock fell to an (all-time) low of $13/share when that occurred, plunging to as low as $11 when, three months later, the company experienced a major funding crisis.  Only a heroic backdoor bailout – replete with an historic propaganda blitz of how the firm was “saved” – enabled it to bounce off that level in October; which naturally, served as a perfect opportunity for the Cartel to launch its mind-boggling blatant “Deutsche Bank Destruction” raid; which just happened to occur “coincidentally” when gold and silver last breached their 200 week moving averages to the upside.

Unfortunately, the bloom is again falling from the world’s most systematically dangerous “rose” – as depicted by its “surprise” issuance last month, of a massively dilutive equity offering (35% below the prevailing market price); once again, putting the world on notice that Deutsche Bank’s inevitable implosion is back on the table.

This, and countless other dying European banks – like Italy’s largest, Uni-credit; which, I might add, could all collapse if either Marine LePen wins May’s French Presidential election, or Greece is not “bailed out” (for the fourth time) in July.

Hopefully, today’s article helps you understand further, that no matter how much money printing, market manipulation, and propaganda the powers that be attempt, they CANNOT usurp “Economic Mother Nature” and the unstoppable tsunami of reality.  As I assure you, this morning’s “eye of the storm” will be over soon – perhaps, by the time you read this.
