Billionaire Investor Blasts Fed, Says Sell Stocks, Buy Gold

The bottom line, in Druckenmiller’s view: The bull market in stocks has exhausted itself, after eight years of radical monetary experiment. As he said, now is the time to buy gold & you can do so while maintaining your privacy. You just need to understand the rules. Some regard it as a metal. We regard it as currency & it remains our largest currency allocation.

What Does NIRP Say About Central Banks & The Economy?

NIRP says, central banks have run out of options & are now in their own end zone, heaving the final desperate Hail Mary pass that has no hope of saving them from total defeat.

Will this Manic Stock Market Rally End in Tears?

The stock market is back to where it should be, i.e. in rally mode. Can the stock market completely ignore these changes and keep powering higher on the fumes of Mario Draghi’s promises and another rate cut or three in China?

The Real Reasons Why The Fed May Hike Interest Rates

Lies You Will Hear As The Economic Collapse Progresses

The Fed Is Bluffing... Interest Rates Won't Rise in 2015

The minutes of the most recent Fed meeting showed Yellen and team still won’t pull the trigger on interest rates hike until certain unspecified conditions are met.

That’s why Ms. Yellen is reluctant to raise rates.

Oil Slump Says ‘No’ to Recovery Story - Eric Sprott Was Right

Cheaper oil prices don’t just come ‘out of the blue.’ Other commodities used for raw materials, construction & economic growth, have been languishing too. Real median incomes remain stagnant since the Great Recession. These are all signs that the recovery we are seeing is mainly asset inflation brought on by cheap debt, not economic growth.

Why The Stock Market Is Detached From The Economy

While statistical economic data suggests that the economy is rapidly healing, it has only been so for a very small percentage of the players.

Moreover; global deflationary pressures have only begun to wash back on the domestic economy.

Periods where the Fed was buying bonds have seen stocks rally, whereas periods where the Fed was not actively purchasing bonds saw two of the largest pullbacks for the S&P 500 during this bull market – proving a historical correlation between increases in the Fed’s balance sheet & the S&P 500.

Federal Reserve Overstepped Bounds With Monetary Policy
