May 31, 2018 | Cryptocurrency Changing the World?

  I do not know how else to say this. Cryptocurrencies are an ASSET CLASS and they are something to TRADE. All this stupid nonsense that they will revise the world monetary system with no pain and governments will be brought to the knees without firing a shot, I really do not know who makes […]

May 31, 2018 | Great Frauds Require Darkness

No doubt you’re aware of the massive fraud uncovered at Theranos, the high tech medical startup purported to be able to run any number of diagnostic tests from a single drop of blood. Theranos was a Silicon Valley upstart valued at $10 billion at its peak and headed by an attractive young woman modeled after […]

May 31, 2018 | How the Government Became a Deep State Puppet

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – When you’ve got a chainsaw, you cut down a tree. And when you’ve got control of monetary and fiscal policy… you go to work on an economy. In both cases, you leave them in pieces.   Knuckleheaded Experiment The difference between the next crash and the last two is that this time, […]

May 31, 2018 | Misinterpreting the Markets

Elsewhere on the page, I’ve detailed the case for a nearly 300-point rally in the S&P 500.  This goes squarely against my gut feeling that the U.S. economy will be in recession before the year ends.  The chart I’ve presented starkly refutes this. It says the economy is more likely to stumble along, producing stock-market […]

May 31, 2018 | The Draggers

Given next Thursday’s slugfest in Ontario, plus BC’s latest witch hunt, this blog post was supposed to tell you why landlords are about to be broiled on a spit. But, alas, events have overtaken things. Let’s save the weenie roast for tomorrow. So, how do you like the Trumpster now? The American president on Thursday […]

May 31, 2018 | Debt-Weary Canada Moving Toward a Reboot

The Bank of Canada (BOC) continued to talk tough while carrying a diminished policy stick yesterday.  With its overnight rate still at 1.25%–10 years since the last recession–there’s no doubt the BOC would like a lot more rate room to cut–they just don’t have it.  What they’re left with is hope and confident statements even […]

May 31, 2018 | Liquidity Crisis Coming: Here, There, Everywhere

Jim Puplava thinks a liquidity crisis is on the horizon. I agree, adding that the problem is global. Please pay attention to Jim Puplava at Financial Sense. He says a Liquidity Crisis Looming. In total, index funds represent $7 trillion of U.S. stock funds that have no active manager. All buying and selling are done […]

May 31, 2018 | Has US Declared Trade War On Its Allies?

Canadian economy doing better than Mainstream Media believe

May 30, 2018 | The Rise in US Share Market in Foreign Currencies

  COMMENT: I spoke this “pretend” analyst who use to be a goldbug and is now a cryptobug. Boy does he hate you. I really had to laugh for he said your computer is a fraud and your forecast on the euro was only correct because you organized it with central banks. I asked him […]

May 30, 2018 | Fed’s Beige Book Supposedly Shifts Into Higher Gear: Reality vs. Anecdotes

The Fed’s “Beige Book” report finds employment grew at a modest to moderate pace across most Fed districts. The Fed’s “Beige Book” is a compilation of economic activity by each of twelve Federal Reserve districts. The title sounds impressive but it is little more than a summation of the anecdotes from the latest Fed regional […]

May 30, 2018 | The Warning

Interest rates will be rising in six weeks – the fourth increase in about a year. The cost of money will rise again after that, likely on October 24th. Don’t say you weren’t warned in advance. The prime rate will be 3.95% by Christmas. The benchmark qualifying rate for the mortgage stress test will be […]

May 30, 2018 | Currency Crashes Coming. Why, When and What to Do

KINGSTON, NY, 30 MAY 2018—Warning: Global currency crash coming. It’s bigger than Italy’s political power struggle that exploded this past weekend that sent equity markets spiraling downward on Tuesday. Yes, the initial cause of the market drops were in part a result of Italian President Sergio Mattarella’s refusal to accept the nomination of Paolo Savona […]

May 30, 2018 | Public Support for Breaking Up Big Banks is Building

The break up of above-the-law financial conglomerates that are bankrupting the world economy should have happened in 2008, but the Obama-led government missed their opportunity to lead on this critical reform.  This change is certain to come forward again in the next financial meltdown, because it must.  There can be no rule of law, stability […]

May 30, 2018 | Phantom Blips On The Chart – Don’t Lose Focus & Free Silver Round Giveaway!

Recent news seems to have everyone concerned about Italy, global debts, Europe and the potential for a debt contagion exploding into the markets.  Yet, our research into price activity says this market is just getting started with an upside swing that could be massive.  Take a few minutes to review our current research to see […]

May 30, 2018 | Topping USD’s Implications for Gold Investors

The euro plunged, the USD Index soared and gold… just stayed put. There was no meaningful action except for the big intraday volatility that ended in a rather small decline. Can one infer anything at all from the above combination of factors? Yes, if one knows where to look. Let’s start by recalling what was […]

May 30, 2018 | Italian Crisis Keeping Markets On Their Toes

What financial areas to avoid in “interesting times”

May 29, 2018 | Italy Roils Global Capital Markets – What Next?

After a fairly solid rally took place over the past few weeks in the US majors, fresh concerns originating from Italy roiled the markets early on Tuesday, May 29.  The concern is really related to the formation of a coalition government in Italy and the excessive debt issues plaguing Italy and many other European Union […]

May 29, 2018 | Poking Fun at Investing Clichés

Situation: Practically everyone has heard of investing clichés. My View: Learn to recognize those clichés applicable to you. Solution: Mastering true meanings of clichés improves your lot. “You sell when people are greedy and buy when people are fearful.”—Warren Buffett Do you ever wonder what the gurus are really saying when they speak in clichés? […]

May 29, 2018 | We’re Living in a Deep State Empire

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – You may be wondering what our discussion last week of “Bad Guy” Theoryhad to do with our beat… money. We wondered, too. We used the Memorial Day holiday to figure it out. So let us begin by peeking into the future: Stocks collapse (expected, by us, before the end of the year)… Recession […]

May 29, 2018 | Markets Are Firmly in the Grip of the ‘Dead Zone’

The Dow Industrials recouped about a third of their rather significant losses before the bell — all within what we must acknowledge as a 2000-point ‘comfort zone’ ranging from around 23,000 to 25,000. The swings could become mind-numbing even if gurus continue to predict, as is their wont, that ‘something’ is about to happen. But […]

May 29, 2018 | The Cariboo Gold Rush: Grub High, Whiskey Bad, Money Plenty!

Gold rushes in Canada have all the exciting elements of one of the old pulp action-adventure novel. Greed, bloodlust, native Americans, Chinese prospectors! For example, let’s look at the Cariboo Gold Rush. When I say “Cariboo Gold Rush,” you may say “What?” Most people have forgotten what was the most exciting event of its day. […]

May 29, 2018 | The Mess

If you ever wonder why bother with a balanced portfolio, Tuesday was a good study. Italy kinda blew up (it does that occasionally) raising fears the Eurozone is pooched, which tanked stocks, roiled the currency markets and ensured a new election there just three months after the last one. The result may not be pretty. […]

May 29, 2018 | On Recession, ‘Advisory’ Services and Equity Diversification

On the weekend the Financial Post ran with an article headed Macquarie thinks housing will drag Canada into a recession as bad as the financial crisis in two years–and that’s the best case scenario. In it Macquarie Capital Markets correctly notes that Canada’s grotesquely inflated–now deflating–housing market is a recession catalyst in motion, with the share of […]

May 29, 2018 | Euro Crisis Unfolds as Politics in Italy Views they are Now an Occupied Country

COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; You do know that you have been the only analyst who has outlined how, why, and when the euro would go into crisis. You said 2018 would be the beginning. Well, it looks to be absolutely correct along with your political models. Thank you for saving me a fortune Cheers JWP REPLY: What […]
