Marc Faber Predicts a 50% Correction in Stocks - Rings Alarm Bells

Marc Faber is just one more expert who is ringing the alarm bells in stocks. Sadly, the mainstream media continue to dismiss the experts who are trying to warn the masses, stating that we are conspiracy theorist and nothing more. Even though we have been proven right in our predictions time and time again, causing the trash can to nearly overflow with tin foil hats.

Gold Investing Justified By Paradigm Shifts In Politics And Markets

What needs to be considered is the future – that is riddled with uncertainty. What we do know, is that the growing negative sentiment towards our governments that have failed us both politically and economically, presents a need to safeguard wealth from the tides ahead. If you haven’t yet included gold in your portfolios, now is the time to do it.

Forget About Yields & Interest Rates - Gold In Direct Competition With Equities

Gold prices have registered just about the best performance across virtually all investment classes over the past six or seven months. Gold stands to gain much when Wall Street tumbles, an outcome that seems increasingly likely as world stock markets edge higher despite widespread expectations of slow economic growth and disappointing corporate earnings.

The Greatest One Day Global Stock Market Loss In World History

Worldwide markets haemorrhaged more than $2 trillion in paper wealth on Friday, according to data from S&P Global, the worst on record. For context, that figure eclipsed the whipsaw trading sessions of the 2008 financial crisis. This could be the tipping point that turns the existing global slowdown of 2016 into a global recession. Friday may turn out to be just the tip of the iceberg.

Gold And Silver Getting Grabbed On Each Manipulated Slamdown

Currently gold is behaving similarly to the way it behaved back in 2003 when it was trying to punch through $400. The “overbought” garbage was permeating the media back then just like now. This market has been surprising everyone to the upside and will continue to do so. At some point the lemmings who blindly soak up the “market is overbought” fairy tale will be running to catch the train.

A Stock Market Correction Has Only Been Postponed, Not Avoided

Markets are relieved that the Fed won’t hike rates in March. But, the markets are never satisfied. Getting stock market expectations aligned with the intended FOMC policy path will not be pretty. Expect higher volatility and stock market drawdowns in April and May as markets reprice. A further stock market correction has been postponed, but not avoided.

Where Is Negative Interest Rate Policy Leading Us To?

Negative interest rate policy by the world’s central banks is getting out of control. The Riksbank has joined the European Central Bank, the Swiss National Bank and the Bank of Japan in this negative interest rate madness. They want inflation, but negative rates feed deflationary expectations. This causes consumers to hold onto cash in the expectation that goods will get even cheaper.

How Much More Higher Could The US Dollar Go?

The US Dollar broke out of its multi-year downtrend and soared above 100. Needless to say, the USD did in fact strengthen a lot. After that initial leg up, the dollar has remained in a consolidation range for much of 2015. Though it recently broke out of a wedge/triangle formation to the upside, it’s not yet clear if this is a definitive move higher or more consolidation.

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? At some point reality will trump fumes, and the manic rally will falter and the mania in stocks will end in tears.

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.

Dependence On Central Banks Is "Unrealistic And Dangerous", BIS Warns

This is a world in which interest rates have been extraordinarily low for exceptionally long and in which financial markets have worryingly come to depend on every word and deed of the central banks, in turn complicating the needed policy normalisation. It is unrealistic and dangerous to expect that monetary policy can cure all the global economy’s ills.

The Bull Market in Stocks May Have Ended Already

With the Fed now running out of ammo, we MAY no longer be in a bull market. Instead, we MAY be entering a bear market. If so, you can forget about a recovery in four months. Instead, it may take four years… or 40 years… to reclaim the bull market high set this past May. Corrections in a bull market are one thing. Bear markets are something very different.

5 Trends That Are Shredding the Global Economy

In the wake of the Global Financial Meltdown of 2008-2009, central banks launched monetary stimulus programs aimed at pumping money into the economy. The stated goals of these stimulus programs were 1) boost employment and 2) generate enough inflation to stave off deflation, which is generally viewed as the cause of financial depressions.

Why Care IF Gold And Silver Are Bottoming, Or Not?

The bottom line for both gold and silver is that the elites may not have finished their game plan, and if true, gold and silver prices can continue to languish at these lower levels in the months to come. Only the Globalists know the full plan. Anyone who wants to be left to the vagaries of guessing is toying with financial suicide in the total loss of “value” in any form of paper assets.

How Fast Are We Approaching A Global Deflationary Crisis?

Describing Crisis – needs to relate all of these elements together – policy failure, debt, imbalances, energy. Each element is causatively connected to the others but sometimes in a time lagged way which obscures the relationships. Together these elements are bringing about what some observers are calling “secular stagnation”.

The Worst Time In History To Be Invested In Stock Markets

While the Fed has been successful at intentionally promoting yield-seeking speculation since 2009, a century of evidence demonstrates that current valuation extremes also imply a stock market collapse that is now baked in the cake, and that Federal Reserve policy has much less ability to prevent than investors seem to believe.

Silver Price Lows and Bubble Bond Markets

T bonds & S&P look dangerous, while silver has been crushed during the past 4 years. Which of those three asset classes is likely to perform better between now & Election Day 2016? Which of those assets has no counter-party risk? Two of those assets currently trade near all-time highs, while one is quite inexpensive.

How Much More Extreme Can Stock Markets Get?

Charts help us understand that a top is not just price, but a reversal in extremes of margin debt, valuation and sentiment. Many observers have an unyielding faith that central banks will never let markets decline ever again. There are four flaws in this blind faith. Here they are.

It’s Time to Hold More Cash and Buy Gold

Bank of America highlights problems with raising rates. The real economy in the U.S. is not currently strong enough to withstand a rise in interest rates. That raising rates could cause a shock to the markets & economy. To deal with this they advocate adding gold to one’s portfolio along with higher levels of cash.
