Warning: The Fed Is Preparing to Crash the Financial System Again / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

Very few investors caught on to it, but a few weeks ago the Fed made its single largest announcement in eight years.

First let me provide some context.

For eight years now, the Fed has propped up the stock market. In terms of formal monetary policy the Fed has:

·      Kept interest rates at ZERO for seven years making money virtually free and forcing investors into stocks and junk bonds in search of yield.

·      Engaged in over $3.5 TRILLION in Quantitative Easing or QE, providing an amount of liquidity to the US financial system that is greater than the GDP of Germany.

A Crash is Coming.... Last Time This Happened Was Spring 2008 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

Perhaps the single most accurate predictor of the economy has rolled over into recession territory.

I’m talking about tax revenues.

GDP growth, unemployment data, ISM surveys… all of these can and are massaged by statisticians to create a rosier picture of the economy than reality. By way of example, we recently noted that 95% of all net job growth since 2008 was in fact created via an accounting gimmick. In reality, the jobs were never created at all.

Are Central Bankers Going to Intentionally Crash the System? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

Since 2007, the world has packed on a truly staggering amount of debt.  That year (2007) is now commonly referred to as a debt bubble. And at that time, global debt was $149 trillion.

Today, 10 years later, it stands at $217 trillion.

Blinded by the Money Illusion - chronology of panics, manias, crashes and collapses / Currencies / Financial Crash

By: Michael_J_Kosares

"Would I say there will never, ever be another financial crisis? You know probably that would be going too far but I do think we're much safer and I hope that it will not be in our lifetimes and I don't believe it will be." – Fed chair Janet Yellen

With those words, Janet Yellen put investors around the world on notice, though probably not in the way she intended. In the past, such smug assurances have been enough to send contrarian villagers heading for the safety of the near-by woods. The informed student of financial history knows that panics, manias, crashes and collapses are as common to investment markets as thunderstorms are to placid summer afternoons. To think that suddenly we have banished their recurrence for "our lifetimes" smacks of the kind of misguided hubris that contributed directly to the 2008 meltdown and subsequent untold financial hardship. Just about the time most everyone came to the conclusion nothing could go wrong, everything went wrong. . . and in a hurry.

Warning: Oil Crash Is Just Days Away From Triggering a Debt Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

The Oil collapse is about to trigger a crisis in junk bonds.

Oil has been going straight down for weeks now. As we write this, black gold is below $43 a barrel, down 16% from its levels a month ago.

Yellen’s Setting Up the Markets For Their Third Fed-Fueled Financial Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

Janet Yellen is playing with matches next to a $20 Trillion Debt Bomb.

During her speech at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy in Michigan, Yellen stated that the biggest risk to monetary policy is for the Fed to “get behind the curve” regarding inflation.

To that end, the Yellen Fed has already raised interest rates twice in the last six months.  And it is pushing for yet another rate hike in June.

Will All Of This ‘Optimism’ Crash The Stock Markets? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Currently, the short-term trend for the SPX is NEUTRAL. The intermediate and long term trends are still very BULLISH!  There is No trend, in the market, at this time. It is neither overbought or oversold.

The SPX is in a ‘Non-Trending’ market.  I expect this next retracement will be completed by the end of April 2017. I plan on taking advantage of this summer’s rally.

Stock Market Crash If Trump Doesn’t Push Through the Tax Reform by 2018 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: John_Mauldin

I’ve been doing a multipart series on the proposed tax reforms in Thoughts from the Frontline (subscribe here for free).

In part two, I talked about what I like about the Better Way proposal. In part three, I pretty much eviscerated the border adjustment tax (BAT).

I think it has the real potential to create a global recession. You’ll need to read the series to see why, but a lot of it has to do with simple game theory.

Jim Rogers Reiterates His Call For A Crash Of Epic Proportions / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jeff_Berwick

Last year we covered a number of big name investors’ warnings regarding the future of financial markets. Many had quite a stark view including George Soros’ Quantum Fund co-founder, Jim Rogers.

This past May, Rogers had such a dismal outlook that he warned “A $68 trillion ‘Biblical’ collapse is poised to wipe out millions of Americans.”

The Markets Will Collapse As Economic Realities Sink In / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

Well the final data is in and Janet Yellen’s “hot” economy is a disaster.

The US finished 2016 with GDP growth of 1.6%.

This is flat out embarrassing. And it confirms what we have suspected all along: that the 3Q16 numbers were completely fabricated in an excel spreadsheet for political purposes.

The Bank of Japan Has Primed the Markets For a Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

This is getting outright ridiculous.

The Bank of Japan is now depreciating the Yen against the $USD on an almost hourly basis.

This is the Yen carry trade. And it’s the SINGLE BIGGEST DRIVER OF THE MARKETS TODAY. As you can see, in the last two weeks, the S&P 500 is following this pair almost tick for tick.

Can we have a Stock Market Flash Crash? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

Could a flash crash happen in the next two days? The answer is yes. The Cycles Model implies that today may be the focal point for the two-week delayed Master Cycle low.

However, as you can see, only Waves 1 and 2 are complete. I am not sure that Waves 3, 4 and 5 can be finished in a day, so Thursday afternoon may be the ideal time…for a flash crash low. Here are the reasons.

How to Successfully Trade a Stock Market Crash - Black Monday October 19th 1987 / InvestorEducation / Financial Crash

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's that time of the year again when the stock market doom merchants are at their most vocal as they focus on the historic apex of the darkest month for stocks of the year, October the 19th, the 29th anniversary of the 1987 Black Monday stock market crash that few saw coming but ever since many expect to repeat. So regardless of what the stock market has actually done thus far, by this point of the year the perma bears can always be seen literally jumping up and down like demented rabbits proclaiming that a crash is once more imminent as they point to a myriad of harbingers of the stock market apocalypse. So it is no wonder that October tends to be an unusually irrational month for where stock market expectations are concerned, and never more so than for this year given the chaos of this years US election election cycle that probably features the worst two candidates in US election history which ensures that America loses no matter who wins.

When it comes to spotting danger periods for recessions, and especially major crashes, the Boom/Bust Cycle lets us see when stock crashes and recessions are most likely to occur. As my fourth key macroeconomic cycle, this makes it the most important one I have innovated since the Generational Spending Wave in 1988.

The Fed is running a virtual repeat of 1937.

The common narrative is that the Fed “didn’t do enough” during the Great Depression. This is used to justify the Fed’s use of non-stop extraordinary monetary policy post-2008.

Billionaire Donald Trump Says The Markets Are False And Will Collapse on January 1st / ElectionOracle / Financial Crash

By: Jeff_Berwick

This week Donald Trump said, “If it was a choice between the right decision and a political decision… The Fed would choose the political decision.”

He then stated that the market “will remain at artificially high levels until January 1st”. This came not long after he slammed Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen in a CNBC interview when he told the interviewer that she should be “ashamed” of her “very political” and “false” market.
