June 30, 2019 | Wall Street All Revved Up for a Lousy Trade Deal

Trump may not get much of a trade deal from China, but you can count on Wall Street to milk a lousy deal for all it’s worth. His concession to Huawei in order to get talks started again was a major comedown for the U.S. It will doubtless please the Wall Street Journal and their ilk that […]

June 30, 2019 | Check Out The Epic Battle In The Gold Market

It is generally, if grudgingly, accepted that the “paper gold” markets – that is, the people trading futures contracts and options – are able to dictate the metal’s price and have used this power to suppress and delay gold’s inevitable trip to the moon. It’s also generally believed (at least by gold bugs) that demand […]

June 29, 2019 | Osaka Summit: Promotes Global Rules, Digital Economy, Centralization!

How can American’s support this leader of Saudi Arabia who engineered the Khashoggi killing? I am shocked at the image above of our leader, Mr. Trump! After listening to the video presented about the Osaka Summit, June 28-29, the words of our leaders (including Mr. Trump) reveal that everyone is on board to promote globalization […]

June 29, 2019 | Italy vs. the Banksters

Remember when Bilderberg “helped create the euro in the 1990s”? And remember when that oxymoronic singular-currency-for-many-nations-with-distinct-monetary-policies was launched in 1999? And remember when Goldman Sachs helped Greece cook its books so it could join the eurozone in 2001? And remember how that blew up in the EU’s face a decade later with the onset of […]

June 28, 2019 | Markets Might Hafta Grapple with “Patient”: Fed Rate Cut in July After This Inflation?

Not a rate-cut economy. The inflation index that the Fed has anointed to be the yardstick for its inflation target – the PCE price index without the volatile food and energy components – rose 0.19% in May from April, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis this morning. This increase in “core PCE” was near […]

June 28, 2019 | Inflation Has Distorted The U.S. Markets

PORTLAW, IRELAND – Yesterday, once again, the Dow rose in the morning – on news that a deal with China was 90% done – and fell later, as investors realized that they couldn’t believe anything that came out of Washington. Meanwhile, the president of the United States of America says he’d rather have a European […]

June 28, 2019 | A U.S. Recession Predicted

  A highly regarded forecaster, who has an excellent track record going back to the 1960s, claims that a recession may have already started in the U.S. There is ample corroborating evidence of a slowdown, as the Federal Reserve abruptly shifted their policy stance to cutting rates in January 2019. The first rate cut of […]

June 28, 2019 | The Head Fake

Recall that advice to lock in your ultra-cheapo mortgage? And to use the bank’s dough instead  of your own when buying real estate? Well, more evidence this makes sense. If you’ve been waiting for the central bank to punt the cost of money, it could be a long stretch. It won’t be happening in July. […]

June 27, 2019 | The Abnormal

As much as I hate to do this, a few words on BTC. The blog’s trigger-happy DELETE button has seen a lot of action in the past week as crypto cowboys flooded here to pump Bitcoin and pretend they know what they’re doing. Of course, they do not. Nor does anyone. Bitcoin’s not money, not […]

June 27, 2019 | Why Is JP Morgan Above The Law

Recent developments indicate, almost beyond question, that when it comes to silver (and gold), JPMorgan is operating in direct violation of the law. So clear is the proof of this allegation that the only real question is why JPM is allowed to openly flaunt basic commodity and antitrust law? Before getting to the why, let […]

June 27, 2019 | Stocks Seem Invincible, Don’t They?

It’s days like Thursday that make the stock market feel so invincible. Although even a super-sensitive lab instrument could not have detected a mote of buying enthusiasm, stocks nevertheless were able to tread water all day and close essentially unchanged. They seem capable of vamping indefinitely while waiting for some ‘news’ to trigger a short-covering […]

June 27, 2019 | Portugal’s Miracle?

The Portuguese economy was bailed out by the European Union eight years ago. It is now booming, also in part for its aggressive attraction of courting foreign investors.

June 26, 2019 | Silver Will Pause Before Going Higher

Silver will likely find resistance near $15.60 and move slightly lower before another upside price leg takes place.  Both gold and silver have begun incredible price rallies over the past 10+ days and we believe this is just the start of a much bigger price trend. We believe Silver, to be one of the absolute […]

June 26, 2019 | The Truth About Iran’s Nuclear Program

“Be afraid!” say the repeaters of mockingbird media. Afraid of who? Afraid of Iran, of course. Oh, haven’t you heard? The Iranian government’s stockpile of enriched uranium is about to surpass 300 kilograms! And Iran’s store of heavy water is about to surpass 130 metric tons! Don’t you understand? This will exceed the limits on these materials set out […]
