orthwhile discussion in this segment in terms of the bear market progress and sentiment to date and the value of cash in softening portfolio declines and preserving liquidity.

Pieces of evidence are lining up in increasing density. The number of potential future homebuyers that need a mortgage has been thinning out for months.

May 17, 2022 | The Coming LIQUIDITY Crisis

QUESTION: Marty, You were named hedge fund manager of the year in 1998 for producing the highest return during the Long Term Capital Management collapse over the Russian bond crisis.

May 17, 2022 | Ellen Brown: Only a People’s Monetary Reset Can Prevent a Feudalistic Technocracy

This is part two to a May 4, 2022 article called “A Monetary Reset Where the Rich Don’t Own Everything,” the gist of which was that national and global debt levels are unsustainably high. We need a “reset,” but of what sort? The “Great Reset” of the World Economic Forum (WEF) would leave the people […]

May 16, 2022 | WHO’s Grand Play for World Power

QUESTION: Well Mr. Armstrong, it looks like you will be right on again. This new WHO treaty on pandemic response is their wet dream.

May 16, 2022 | The Rout is On

It was another volatile week for financial markets. Nearly $11 trillion was erased from global equity values. If you start adding the bond and crypto markets we have $35 trillion in wealth that has evaporated. I’m often asked where is all the money coming from? How are people coming up with the down payments for […]

May 15, 2022 | Human Nature Is Amazing

Everybody wants to buy real estate when it is up 100% – and nobody wants to buy when it’s down 50%. If you want to kick-butt and out-perform the pack as a real estate investor, you can’t do what everybody else does. You have to sell greed and buy fear – and not the other […]

May 15, 2022 | Ready to Get Sucked In?

We’ve had four months to observe and analyze the bear market that began a single tick off January 4’s record high. What might be said about it so far?  Mainly that it has been far kinder and gentler than we should expect. Realize that the biggest financial bubble in U.S. history has popped. Although this […]

May 15, 2022 | A Little Harder

The Strategic Investment Conference wrapped up this week with another wave of strong, fascinating speakers and panels. I gave you some highlights in last week’s Soft Now, Hard Later letter.

May 15, 2022 | Are Putin and XI Gray Champions? (PART 2)

In Part 1 of this article I examined previous Fourth Turnings and the Gray Champions who won and lost, but made a difference in the course of history.

May 14, 2022 | Massive Stock Market Leverage Unwinds amid Brutal Bloodletting

The total amount of leverage in the stock market is unknown and takes many forms. The only form that is tracked and reported on a monthly basis is margin debt. The other forms, such as Securities Based Lending (SBL) and hedge funds leveraged at the institutional level are not tracked. Not even banks and brokers […]

May 14, 2022 | Are Putin and Xi Gray Champions?

“Long, long may it be, ere he comes again! His hour is one of darkness, and adversity, and peril.

That stately form, combining the leader […]

May 14, 2022 | Trading Desk Notes For May 14, 2022

Stock indices down, US Dollar up for six consecutive weeks Looming American exceptionalism in monetary tightening (a determination to reign in no-longer-transitory inflation by discouraging demand) has magnified negative stock market sentiment (fear of inflation, then recession). In contrast, the US Dollar has surged higher against virtually all other currencies as capital flows to America […]

May 13, 2022 | The Cryptocurrency Crisis

COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong, I just wanted to express my thanks. You were the only one who called the high in Bitcoin. You saved my marriage, my home, and my future. I tried to tell a friend who went and took an equity loan to invest in Bitcoin. He may lose his home now. I tried to […]

May 13, 2022 | A Worldwide Food Crisis is Happening

May 12, 2022 | Inflation – Recession – Rising Rates Rather Than Lower Rates

COMMENT: Marty, I want to thank you so much for the WEC. Perhaps you will consider doing one that is streamed in the middle of this craziness. I have listened to many analysts. But you are head and shoulders above everyone. Only you called for declining economic growth, rising inflation, and rising interest rates in […]

May 12, 2022 | Kitco: Gold Price on ‘Cusp’ of $2k Rally, Here’s How Not to Miss it

by Anna Golubova on Kitco: After falling 6.5% in the last month, gold is now near a bottom, with the $1,800 an ounce serving as a floor for prices, Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone told Kitco News.

May 12, 2022 | Defensive Equities are a Leaky Shelter in Bear Markets

Most financial advisers and managers talk of ‘defensive sectors’ as a place to take shelter in bear markets (because their business model doesn’t want or mandate them to ever leave equities).  Defensive equities and funds work better in theory than in reality because risk assets of all types tend to fall in bear markets. Case […]

May 11, 2022 | Bear Market Legs Lower

As of yesterday, the 27% year-to-date drop in both the tech-heavy Nasdaq and smaller-cap Russell 2000 is the worst start to a year on record.  As shown in the table below, courtesy of Charlie Bilello, the broader-based S&P 500 is -17% from its January 4th high and -16% year-to-date–its second-most negative start to any year […]

May 11, 2022 | Chris Martenson: The Pfizer Documents

The FDA and Pfizer wanted to keep the vaccine trial results hidden for up to 75 years. Now we know why.

May 11, 2022 | Is China Really Still Communist?

QUESTION:  Hello Martin – In today’s “Spread The Love”, you mention at the end that today, neither Russia or China are communist. I think the assertion that Russia is not communist is probably believable and something most of us have heard in one form or another since 1989… But how can you say China is […]

May 10, 2022 | The Saretsky Report – May 2022

Last month we discussed the beginnings of a slowdown, and that theme continues this month.

This means that any buyer opting to make a purchase using a 5 year fixed rate will be stress tested at […]

May 10, 2022 | Inconvenient Truth: Price Matters

Bitcoin is off nearly 55% from its November peak, and 40% of holders are now underwater on their investments, according to new data from Glassnode. That percentage is even higher when you isolate for the short-term holders who got skin in the game in the last six months when the price of bitcoin peaked at around $69,000. […]
