World Financial InStability - Stock Market Wealthbuilder Report

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014 Apr 01, 2014 - 06:17 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

I came across the inverted pyramid below last year which outlines the “asset backing configuration” between gold, cash and all other financial instruments.


I decided to try to put some real figures behind this graphic. What I discovered is summarized below.

When you review this summary you begin to understand why many are beginning to believe the current “fiat” (Fiat = let it be) money system is becoming increasingly unstable and cannot continue in its present “arrangement”.

The one statistic that I discovered  which really worries me is the fact that in 18 years total currency in circulation (item 2.) has grown from 1 trillion dollars to the current level of 4 trillion dollars.

This has all the hallmarks of hyper-inflation to me and explains the explosion in food, commodity and equity prices world –wide despite lackluster economic performance.

World Financial Summary:

9.         Total Value of Derivatives (Notional):                1,200 Trillion

8.         Total Debt. (Owned By Banks):                                160 Trillion

7.         Total Value of Assets In The World:                         120 Trillion (Managed).

6.         Total Personal Debt. (Owned By Banks):               100 Trillion

5.         Total Gov. Debt. (Owned By Banks):                       60   Trillion

4.         World GDP:                                                                  70   Trillion

3.         Total Value of Derivatives (Cash):                          20   Trillion     

2.         Total Value of Circulating Currency (Cash):          4     Trillion

1.         Total Value of Gold Reserves:                                   1.5 Trillion

 (US Dollars: Approx. 2013).

 Technical Bullish Breakout Signals.

On the Dow Industrials, the Dow Transports, the McClennan Oscillator Index, the McClennan Summation Index, the Advance-Decline Line, the market is giving “buy” signals this Tuesday.

I attach charts of the fore-mentioned for your review.

Dow Industrials: Daily

Dow Transports: Daily

 

McClennan Summation Index: Daily

McClennan Oscillator: Daily

 

Advance/Decline Line: Daily

Technically speaking this augurs well for the up-coming earnings season.

Even consumer staples, which have been in a short term bear, gave a gentle bullish break-out signal.

Consumer Staples ETF: XLP: Daily

As you can see from the chart above, for nearly 20 trading days (4 calendar weeks) the Consumer Staples ETF: XLP had been caught in a tight trading range (a line).

I told all my students to closely observe where the “break-out” would occur on this ETF. I pointed out that, on probability, the break-out direction would indicate April’s earning season trend.
