December 13, 2018 | German Yields Decline for Lack of Confidence or Expectation of Lower Rates at the Fed?

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Do you agree with Bloomberg that the yield on German bunds has declined in anticipation of the Fed lowering rates?

December 11, 2018 | When is Inflation – Deflation?

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; the WEC was the best ever. The materials it took you a month to prepare in advance are amazing. Your insight into the difference between a sovereign debt crisis and how that produces deflation compared to the debasement deserves a Nobel Prize. My question is how did the people cope with the […]

December 10, 2018 | BREXIT Vote Postponed?

Prime Minister Theresa May has postponed the final vote on her BREXIT deal, which is a clear admission that she does not believe she can get the unpopular withdrawal agreement through the House of Commons. What is really fascinating is that the computer seems to have forecasted that result. We did not see a major […]

December 7, 2018 | France Has the Highest Tax Rate in the Industrialized World & Worst Investment Record in Europe

What is really amazing is how governments just fail to comprehend that revolution is instigated by corruption and taxes. Nevertheless, they just can’t help themselves. They have to keep taking cookies from the jar until it is empty and then act surprised when the people suddenly rise up. France tops the list of the highest taxed […]

December 6, 2018 | BREXIT and the Chaos Unleashed by Prime Minister May

  The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the UK can unilaterally cancel its withdrawal from the EU at any time and that will not be subject to a vote by other EU member states. This is a non-binding opinion that was delivered by an advocate general of the European Court of Justice. The […]

December 5, 2018 | Will the 2020 Presidential Election be the Most Violent in American History

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Thanks to you I am paying closer attention to what people are saying in politics these days. It seems to be that this was not a Blue Wave they were waging but a Blue War. It is very disturbing to see the hatred is still brewing against anyone who just wants to be […]

December 3, 2018 | The Next French Revolution – Is it Beginning

The austerity measures of the EU are having a profound impact in Europe. In Paris on December 1st, 2018 (right on time with our volatility models for December) there was a major civil uprising, the worst France has witnessed in recent decades. Yellow Vests movement is named after fluorescent jackets kept in all vehicles in […]

November 30, 2018 | US Bank Reserves 10% – EU Bank Reserves 1%

QUESTION: What mechanism prevents banks from creating fraudulent electronic deposits of currency? As an IT systems admin, I have the ability to add / subtract / adjust ERP systems inventory / costing outside the normal users ability. I could add widgets to the system at will, but fraud can’t be sustained very long, as the physical […]

November 29, 2018 | Why Has Farmland Exploded in Price? The Accidental Trend Correlation

  Most people have little idea WHY big money was targeting buying farmland in Canada, USA, and Australia. It was more than just Chinese investment. With interest rates down to negative, capital has been looking for returns. They were buying farmland and then renting it out generally for 5%. This created what many call the […]

November 28, 2018 | Scientists Want to Synthetically Create a Volcanic Winter – Are they Just Nuts?

  Believe it or not, pretend Scientists are actuall proposing to create a synthetic Volcanic Winter by spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere the same as a volcanoe when it erupts. These pretend research scientists at Harvard and Yale universities have published in the journal Environmental Research Letters proposing to inject an aerosol (SAI) to reduce […]

November 27, 2018 | USA v Euro Capital Flows

  QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your forecast that the capital flows would shift from the EU to the USA I believe has been confirmed by both the European bond markets and share markets.

November 26, 2018 | Central Banks Looking at Creating Their Own Cryptocurrencies

The IMF has recommended that all Central banks should issue their own cryptocurrencies. Indeed, they are looking at using Block Chain to keep track of taxes and to enforce negative interest rates with cryptocurrencies which would allow them to impose negative interest rates whenever necessary. With adopting cryptocurrencies that governments would control, we will come one step closer to losing all […]

November 22, 2018 | Abu Dhabi file suit Against Goldman Sachs for Criminal Fraud

The real curious thing is that the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund filed a lawsuit against Goldman Sachs precisely on the Pi Target Wednesday (Nov 21) for allegedly conspiring against the Middle Eastern fund to further a criminal scheme by Malaysia’s scandal-plagued 1MDB. So here we have the suit filed precisely on the Pi Target […]

November 21, 2018 | Welcome to the Pi Target Day – 2018.89

Welcome to the Pi Target Day 2018.89. There is just so much going on it is hard to say which event is the critical target. These events are usually GEOPOLITICAL in nature. They have marked the day Hitler was offered the Chancellorship, the attack on the pound & the break of the ERM with the […]

November 20, 2018 | Rising 3rd Party Trend

Although the recounts have been going on, the Republicans still seem to be winning both governorships and the Senate. The Blue Wave fizzled out and their victory in the House still produced fewer seats than they held before. That FOX poll that reported 46% of Republicans identified with Trump rather than the GOP clearly shows that […]

November 19, 2018 | November 21st, 2018 Pi Target

  There are so many things happening in the political world it is next to impossible to figure out what is going to be the focal point for the Pi target since perhaps it could be a combination. The lastest hat being thrown into the ring is the European Commission is planning to enter their […]

November 17, 2018 | Illinois Thinking About Imposing a Stiff Exit Tax to Leave?

The politicians in Illinois after destroying the state economically, want to now impose an EXIT tax for anyone who dares to think about leaving the state. This is the problem we face. They will never look at the long-term impact of their decisions. Such a tax may make others decide NOT to move to the […]

November 16, 2018 | Real Estate – Taxes – Currency

COMMENT: Dear Martin, I bought ‘The World Real Estate Report’ at the end of 2016. It stated that Australian real estate was going to fall after the first quarter (March) in 2016. The property prices in Melbourne (where I live) continued to rise in April 2016 so I sent an email to Socrates Support asking […]

November 14, 2018 | BREXIT Nothing Like What the People Voted For

The draft deal of Prime Minister May smells really bad. It is clear that politicians are clueless about trade and the U.K. remaining within the (EU) customs union forever is really going to economically tie Britain to the EU without a right to even vote. What they do not get is that trade in the EU is not negotiated with a […]

November 13, 2018 | The Rise of Nationalism

Part of the War Cycle we have been warning about since it turned upward in 2014, is not merely international tensions between nation-states.  This particular uptick is the convergence of two cycle – (1) the international tension, and (2) the civil unrest. I previous warned that because the civil unrest would turn up, this should […]

November 12, 2018 | The Realist View of the Midterms

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your take on the midterm elections is that the Democrats really failed and simply won a symbolic victory? Thank you IE ANSWER: Yes. The Democrats keep making lower highs and deeper lows. They do not review the major trend nor are they willing to revise their central theme.  While the Democrats won the majority […]

November 9, 2018 | Global Warming Agenda to Create Authoritarian Government

Back in 1996, the former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev expressed the real truth behind the Global Warming agenda. He said that using climate alarmism could advance the socialist Marxist objectives to restore the power of government. He said: “The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order.” Essentially, this was revealing what […]

November 8, 2018 | The Razor Thin Midterm Elections

The races are so razer-thin showing that the nation is deeply divided that we are still waiting on some seats to be declared – namely three in the Senate. This is extremely critical on our model because right now it is 51 to 46 and we have a Bearish Reversal at 47 in the Senate for the […]
