August 31, 2021 | Stuck in the Fed’s Vicious Cycle

Raise your glass to the hard-working people Let’s drink to the uncounted heads Let’s think of the wavering millions Who need leading but get gamblers instead Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows And a parade of the gray-suited grafters A choice of cancer or polio – Salt […]

August 31, 2021 | The Failure of Gold in the Midst of Chaos

QUESTION: I have listened to the goldbugs for years. But it seems as though they always say the same thing that the dollar will crash because of debt, the stock market will crash and the only thing to survive is gold. But this advice has missed everything for years. I was told to listen to […]

August 31, 2021 | SEC Investigating “Gamification and Behavioral Prompts” in Financial Markets

These obvious admissions are ridiculously overdue, but public comments by the new Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) Chair Gary Gensler offer a glimmer of regulatory hope. Gensler admitted this week that payment for order flow — the back-end payment brokerages receive for directing clients’ trades to market makers — has “an inherent conflict of interest”  and that banning […]

August 30, 2021 | Australia Adopts the Strategy of the Berlin Wall

  This photo of a separated couple in Australia where there is now a hard wall between New South Wales and Queensland illustrates the insane tyranny of Australian politicians who have lost all sense of who elected them. Families are separated and the politicians are no different than the communist leaders of East Germany – create barriers […]

August 30, 2021 | Foreign Buyer Be Gone

I don’t have any strong political views, I genuinely believe politicians are just pawns in a bigger system that is deeply entrenched in society today. In other words, full of promises but not a whole lot changes regardless of who gets in power. I do, however, have a few observations about these elections that i’d […]

August 30, 2021 | Major Market Event Ahead

Conditions have aligned for the occurrence of a significant market event in silver and gold. Extreme technical considerations and supply/demand fundamentals have combined to create the likelihood of this event. By “significant market event,” I mean the sudden upward movement of several dollars or more in silver, and an equivalent price move in gold in […]

August 30, 2021 | Fed Statements Drive New Rally Momentum In The Stock Markets

Last week, the US Federal Reserve reiterated statements in support of continued easy money policies and support for a recovering US economy.  Additionally, Jerome Powell made a statement suggesting tightening too early could be much more damaging than waiting until sufficient headwinds are behind us.  I interpret this as stating the current inflationary concerns are […]

August 29, 2021 | BigTech – Replacing Banks

QUESTION: Can you explain how using Jack Dorsey’s financial tools are another way Americans are surrendering their freedoms. Although the transaction fees are a fraction of banks and the time duration are almost instant. Thanks – although after years or writing into your block/contact I’ve yet to have a reply N ANSWER: Back in 2020, I had […]

August 29, 2021 | Perfect Storms

Having been Puerto Rico residents for almost three years now, Shane and I have learned a few things about living in the tropics. In Dallas, we didn’t often think about hurricanes, though we did have tornadoes and severe thunderstorms. Ditto for earthquakes. North Texas is pretty stable, geologically speaking. Now hurricanes and earthquakes are part […]

August 29, 2021 | The 800-Pound Tapeworm in the Room

Jackson Hole hubris was operating at full strength last week as investors around the world anxiously awaited the announcement on Friday that would send the markets into hyperdrive. The broad averages had in fact churned impassively for several days ahead of whatever lame twaddle concerning The Tapeworm lay in store. The question of when the […]

August 28, 2021 | This Week in Money

August 28, 2021 | Trading Desk Notes For August 28, 2021

Another week – another new All-Time High for the S+P, the Nasdaq and the TSE Jay Powell’s much anticipated Jackson Hole speech did nothing to cool the market’s enthusiasm – so the bounce back from last week’s lows continued with the S+P now up ~20% YTD, up ~105% from last year’s lows. For months, there […]

August 27, 2021 | Was the Origin of COVID from a Canadian Lab?

Perhaps you will recall the early claims that there was a link between the lab in Canada and Wuhan, which were immediately called a conspiracy theory so they do not have to answer them. The samples of the first version of COVID match what was created in the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada. Also buried […]

August 27, 2021 | Saviors and Protectors

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – Some day in the future… we’re going to understand the world better. Among other things, perhaps we will have a clearer view of that wonderful, wacky world of cryptos… Are they investments? Are they alternative forms of “money”? Or are they more like an art-form… or just entertainment? Maybe they’re a kind […]

August 27, 2021 | Stock Market Speculation Soars

Speculation in stock markets has been growing for many months. But the latest review of several reliable indicators of speculation shows that a shocking amount of speculative fever has appeared in stock market activity. Does this degree of speculation always lead to a stock market crash? The highly respected GMO LLC quarterly letter compiled a […]

August 26, 2021 | Marking the Unvaccinated As they Marked Jews in the 1930s

  History indeed repeats. In Europe, they demand that the “unvaccinated” wear masks to identify themselves, just as the Jews were forced to wear yellow stars to identify themselves in society. Interestingly, there were Jews in Germany who saw the threats and set sail for America. I was told many years ago that other Jews […]

August 26, 2021 | Bluff Of The Year: Fed Threatens To “Get Aggressive” With Inflation

You can summarize the current mood in Washington DC as “Please don’t let this be a return to the 1970s.” For younger readers, that was a decade in which excessive government spending and money printing combined with inept foreign policy to create the impression that the US was fading into global irrelevance. Everyone everywhere dumped […]
