The Real Secret for Successful Trading

Nassim Taleb Warns The Biggest Black Swan Event of All Is Coming

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016 Aug 10, 2016 - 01:26 PM GMT

By: Jeff_Berwick

Stock-Markets

We are at an incredible moment in history.

US stock markets are at nominal all-time highs. Government bonds are at or near all-time highs. Yet, central banks worldwide sit at 0% interest rates or less because things are too precarious to even raise rates a paltry 0.25% for fear of collapsing the entire system.

In “traditional” economics this makes no sense.  But we are far out of “traditional” now… we are in the extreme end-stages of a collapsing system.  When that happens, nothing makes sense from a traditional/normal perspective.


In the third quarter of 2015, during the end of the Shemitah year, world stock markets had their worst quarter since the last Shemitah year in 2008… and then they bounced back up.  In January, world stock markets had their worst starting month to the year in history… and then they bounced back up.  And, most recently, the day after Brexit, which was 7 days, 7 weeks, 7 months and 7 years since the Shemitah end day in 2008, world stock markets again had their worst day in history… and then bounced back up.

Of course we notice the numerical repetition. None of this is happenstance, surely. It is clear we are onto something; and thus we continue to expect massive volatility and crashes. We predicted them and they arrived as scheduled.  We’ve seen three crashes in the last year with massive volatility.  And, volatility is usually a sign that something is terribly wrong.

The final crash, the biggest “black swan” ever and subsequent economic depression, surely will be worse than anything that has gone before. Post-crash, expect additional and deeper warfare as those behind these disasters will need to create organized violence to maintain control of society as they did in the early and mid 20th century.

Regularly, others have added their voices to our market warnings. Now it’s Nassim Taleb’s turn. The man who popularized the “black swan” theory, was just interviewed by Yahoo Finance and said, “The markets will ultimately crash again, although this time it will hurt a lot more people.”

I like to use Nassim’s “black swan” analogy when I describe how bad things have gotten.  In the last few years I’ve said that there are so many black swans looming now they are blacking out the sun!

And Nassim has now stated that we will see another crash… but this one will hurt a lot more people.  And we agree.  The next one will make people yearn for the good ol’ days of the 2008 crisis.

Nassim’s not the only one either.

Marc Faber said in a recent interview that the S&P is set to crash 50%, giving back five years of gains. The publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” that the upcoming crash might be as bad as anything that has come before. Presumably that includes 1929.

Over the weekend, professional investors and economists met at Camp Kotok in eastern Maine to discuss markets. The conference was organized by David Kotok of Cumberland Advisors and has been called a mini-Davos. The view from Camp Kotok: These times are unprecedented and terrifying. It is not clear when the market will finally collapse, but it will be catastrophic when it happens.

Investors at Camp Kotok didn’t seem to hold much hope for Yellen to conduct normal monetary policy. Yes, interest rates have to move higher at some point – toward “normalcy” – and stock prices have to revert to normal levels as well (lower) but it is certainly not clear when that will occur – and how drastic the correction might be.

As CNBC put it:

The ongoing delay in hiking rates leads to another deeper concern among economists: Is the Fed losing control? The Fed isn’t supposed to pay much attention to markets, but lately the Fed appears to hesitate every time the market hiccups.

And if there’s another big market or economic downturn, the Fed doesn’t have many tools left to intervene other than the scary prospect of negative interest rates.

Just to make sure that savings are impossible, central banks are gradually moving the West and the world toward negative rates. Only when the bankers have squeezed the last drop of savings from the average investor, and herded them all into the casino (stock market) will markets crash. If you are not incredibly careful you will be like most people, completely decimated.

This is what you have to keep in mind when observing these markets. The mainstream media will treat what’s going on as merely an extension of what’s come before. But in reality these events are planned in detail. It is necessary to crash the world’s economy to build an expanded globalism, and those determined to have “one world” will stop at nothing to do so.

You may or may not agree with our analysis, but we’ve been warning people about what’s to come in detail (and timelines) since we began our Shemitah analysis in 2015. Those behind the current and coming disasters use various ritual celebrations and timelines to implement new occurrences that reinforce their objectives.

Understanding what they’ve put in place, we’ve been able to counteract it with strategies of our own that have proven extremely successful in the past few years, In fact, our TDV portfolio has soared some 200 percent and the picks of our legendary Senior Analyst Ed Bugos are regularly moving  up some 100 percent after he calls them.

None of this is coincidence and it’s a big reason why we’ve attracted thousands of new subscribers to our TDV newsletter. These individuals have heard about our results or seen them for themselves from family or friends. In any event we welcome them aboard. We want to help as many people as possible. Unlike those who simply recommend stock exposure, we protect our investors through regular investment updates and alerts.  Ed’s next alert is set to go out in the next 24 hours to subscribers.

Tomorrow’s catastrophe is being prepared today. If you want to take advantage of these manipulations (instead of being battered by them), please join us by subscribing to our TDV newsletter and begin to earn income that will provide you resources you will surely need. We know what’s going on and we can help you understand too and profit from that knowledge. Please subscribe HERE.
