A Stock Market Shock Is the Only Way Out: Deutsche Bank Analyst

The US stock market continues to hit new highs to the puzzlement of many. This run to new highs in the US stock market is bizarre seeing as the profit picture remains as muddled as ever. This is definitely not an earnings-based rally. Ironically the shock that is needed would require a collapse in risk assets for policymakers to then really panic and attempt dramatic fiscal stimulus.

Gold Makes First Higher High In 5 Years: Is This The Signal We’ve Been Waiting For?

Today, for the first time in five years, gold has made a higher high. Since 2011, gold has marched down the stairs. Now, for the first time in five years, gold took a step up. This is a classic bottoming pattern. It’s an extremely important signal that suggests the gold bear market is over. The odds now favor gold prices going higher. If you don’t own gold yet, we strongly suggest buying some.

Reasons for Traders to Be Fearful of Gold

The stock market’s worst January coincides with a chorus of predictions that the fall of gold has reached bottom from its lofty peak in 2011. Gold is the investment of the fearful & there’s fear of just about everything from recession to terrorism. On casual inspection, it’s easy to conclude that the price of gold has nowhere to go but up after a 4 year slide to $1,045. Look harder.

Commodity Crash Warns Of Imminent Deflationary Financial Crisis

Overall, the Bloomberg Commodity Index is down more than 28 percent over the past 12 months, and it has plummeted by more than half since mid-2011. The exact same patterns that we witnessed just prior to the great stock market crash of 2008 are happening once again. This includes the staggering crash of commodity prices that we are currently witnessing.

Stock Markets Of The 10 Largest Global Economies Are All Crashing

You would think that the simultaneous crashing of all of the largest stock markets around the world would be very big news & that this would be enough to wake people up, but most Americans still don’t seem very alarmed. And of course what has happened to U.S. stock markets so far is quite mild compared to what has been going on in the rest of the world.

The Economics of a Stock Market Crash

To mainstream financial commentators, blame for a crash is always placed on remote factors, such as China’s financial crisis, and has little to do with events closer to home. Analysis of this sort is selective and badly misplaced. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the economic background to today’s markets as well as the likely consequences.

Why Stocks Could Fall 50% if the Fed Makes the Wrong Move

I don’t know what the Fed’s going to do. That’s a guessing game. What’s important is that we’re in an extremely fragile situation. The world has too much debt & the Fed’s margin for error is tiny. If it takes a wrong step & stocks plummet 50%, it could cause a bigger financial crisis than in 2008. Do you trust the US government & the Fed to manage this dangerous situation?

Commodities Collapsed Just Before Last Stock Market Crash – Any Guess About Now?

If we were going to see a stock market crash in the United States in the fall of 2015 (to use a hypothetical example), we would expect to see commodity prices begin to crash a few months ahead of time. This is precisely what happened just before the great financial crisis of 2008, and we are watching the exact same thing happen again right now.

Is Credit Deflation Bad For Gold Prices?

Its a common view in financial markets that credit deflation is bad for gold prices, as gold nowadays is regarded as an asset to be sold in the scramble for cash when people are forced to pay their debts. Distressed speculators will come under pressure to sell gold, but this argument ignores the certainty that during a credit deflation government-issued currencies always weaken against gold.

Europe, China Stocks & Commodities Crashing – Are U.S. Stocks Next?

European stocks are crashing, Chinese stocks are crashing, and commodities are crashing. And guess what? All of those things happened before U.S. stocks crashed in the fall of 2008 too. In so many ways, it seems like we are watching a replay of the financial crisis of 2008, but this time around the world is in far worse shape financially.

What Options Are Left for Central Banks?

What happened over the past six years is that central banks have moved from providing short-term buffers to being the saviors of the government, economy and asset markets. This extraordinary transformation from the role as short-term buffers during crisis, is the core reason why central bank policies are now failing to move the needle.

Why the Market Could Crash - Not in Two Years, But Now

A stock market crash isn’t just possible – it’s absolutely inevitable. The conceptual foundation of this view is: Regardless of how much money central banks print & distribute & how much they intervene in the markets, these remain complex systems that necessarily exhibit the semi-random instability that characterizes all complex systems.

Gold Prices Could Go To Infinity - Ron Paul

Former U.S. Representative Dr Ron Paul told CNBC’s Jackie DeAngelis and the Futures Now Traders that the long-term case for gold remains firmly intact. He has long said America should “end the Fed,” and he made that case once again on Tuesday. He says that he “still believes in gold” and that “gold prices could go to infinity.”

Is the Fed going to attempt a Controlled Collapse?

It’s extremely clear from the BIS’ language, that the concept of initiating a collapse is openly discussed as a policy measure. This was a direct recommendation to bring on the crash – or as they say, to “bring forward the downward leg of the cycle”. So just maybe the Fed fully intends on heeding the advice of the BIS.

Silver Prices rose twice as much as Gold in June - Will this continue?

Silver prices rose by 12.5% in June compared to 6.7% for gold though for the year-to-date gold is still fractionally ahead. Silver bulls see this as the start of a rocket to the moon for prices. Can this out-performance by silver continue? Actually if gold prices continue to advance, it would be very surprising if silver did not.

Is Copper Foreshadowing A Stock Market Crash Just Like It Did In 2008?

Traditionally, “Dr. Copper” has been a very accurate indicator of where the global economy is heading next. For example, back in 2008 the price of copper dropped from nearly $4.00 to under $1.50 in just a matter of months. Is the price of copper trying to tell us something AGAIN?
