More Reasons to Own Gold and Silver With Each Passing Day

Does a 0.25% Fed Funds rate increase really change the fiat currency destruction policy adopted for decades & provide an impetus to sell gold and silver in exchange for devaluing paper & digital fiat currencies? There is no end in sight to the fiat currency purchasing power devaluation objectives of Central Bankers & start converting fiat currencies into wealth preserving physical gold and silver.

Will a March Fed Rate Hike lead to Crashing Market Expectations?

Will a Fed rate hike in March lead to a train wreck by crashing into market expectations? It depends on whether Janet Yellen can signal the markets that her Cannonball Express is not stopping. Casey Jones died frantically pulling the train’s whistle. Janet Yellen needs to start blowing the Fed’s whistle and warning markets now — before it’s too late.

The Worst Part Is Central Bankers Know Exactly What They Are Doing

Perhaps the most dangerous lie circulating today is that central banks are chaotic operations run by intellectual idiots – the Central Bankers, who have no clue what they are doing. This is nonsense. While the ideological cultism of elitism & globalism is ignorant & monstrous at its core, these people function rather successfully through highly organized collusion.

Why the Bear of 2015 Is Different from the Bear of 2008

It’s tempting to see similarities in last week’s global stock market mini-crash and the monumental meltdown that almost took down the Global Financial System in 2008-2009. The dizzying drop invites comparison to the last Bear Market that took the S&P 500 from 1,565 in October 2007 to 667 on March 9, 2009. Here are a few of the differences.

Recovery? No Jobs for the Young, No Retirement for the Old

The Fed’s Zero Interest Rate Policy has destroyed low-risk yields on retirement funds, greatly reducing the yield on retirement savings. As a a direct result of Fed policy (designed to recapitalize banks at the expense of savers & retirees), those hoping to retire have been forced to put their savings at risk or working longer because the low-risk yield on retirement savings are now meager.

Will the Fed Intervene in the Oil Market?

The question isn’t, why would the Fed intervene in the oil market? The question is, why wouldn’t the Fed intervene in the oil market? In a larger sense, the Fed is already intervening in the oil sector. Should the Fed turn the dial of intervention up by buying futures and oil-based bonds, it is not a new policy–it is simply a matter of degree.

Central Banks Create Deflation, Not Inflation

The Federal Reserve and other central banks desperately want inflation, even though it destroys the purchasing power of paychecks and savings, for one reason:in a system based on phantom collateral supporting ever-increasing mountains of debt, the Prime Directive of central banks is to make it ever easier to service yesterday’s debt.

6 Major Flaws in the Fed’s Economic Model

Janet Yellen’s greatest deficiency is that she does not use practical rules. Instead she uses esoteric economic models that do not correspond to reality. This approach is highlighted in two Yellen speeches. In June 2012 she described her “optimal control” model and in April 2013 she described her model of “communications policy.”

Has The S&P 500 Topped At Exactly The Same Price As Gold?

Interesting facts: Spot gold has topped at exactly same levels as S&P500 top to date, on a closing basis. When gold peaked at $1,895.00 in Sep 2011, S&P500 was at a major intermediate bottom at 1200. Spot gold made a double bottom below $1,200 in Dec 2013 while S&P500 hit all time highs at 1890.90 a week ago.

Deflation Is Coming And It’s Not What You Think

Deflation is coming but not in the way most people think about it – at least not at first. The deflation that’s coming first is coming to financial assets. That’s what I worry about – I worry about asset bubble deflation.
