Contagion from Italy’s Bank Meltdown Spreads

wolfstreet.com / by Don Quijones / July 27, 2016

There’s a pervasive sense of inevitability to Italy’s banking crisis.

Without a taxpayer-funded bailout that directly contravenes the Eurozone’s new bail-in rules, the world’s oldest surviving bank, Monte Dei Paschi, could soon be out of business. Shares of the decrepit financial entity have long been reduced to a penny stock. So far this year, they’ve lost 78% to close on Tuesday at an inconsequential €0.28.

The closer it comes to its end, the louder the calls for its rescue. Last week saw two out of three of the members of the institutional triad formerly known as the Troika — the ECB and the IMF — lend their support to a taxpayer funded bailout of Italy’s banking system. So, too, did the biggest U.S. bank by assets, JP Morgan Chase.

All that was needed was for Europe’s most influential bank, New York-based Goldman Sachs, to give its blessing. That came on Monday in a report whose conclusion is fittingly Goldman-esque: saving Italy’s banks is not just necessary; it would be a bargain for all concerned. The authors breezily point out that the €210 billion euros of non-performing loans (ha, the ECB says €360 billion and growing every time someone looks at it) on the books of the banks could all be wiped out with the equivalent of just nine months of ECB President (and former Goldmanite) Mario Draghi’s bond purchases.

For Those Who Slept Through The “Yen Rollercoaster”, This Is What You Missed

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jul 27, 2016 7:00 AM

As we started reporting last night, the yen suffered a rollercoaster ride for more than two hours today as investors chased various media trial balloons and reports – many conflicting – about prime minister Abe’s stimulus package and debt-sale plans, ahead of this week’s much anticipated BOJ announcement.

For those who slept through the night’s fireworks this is what you missed.

Sequence of events:

Initially, the Yen was lower for the early part of the morning before extending decline by 0.6% to 105.93 vs USD after FNN reported Abe will give details of stimulus package this afternoon

  • USD/JPY buyers scrambled to cover positions on FNN report, with leveraged and intraday accounts leading rush to buy dollars, according to a trader

Gold and Silver Market Morning: July-27-2016 — Gold and silver prices still sitting on support!

news.goldseek.com / Julian D.W. Phillips / 27 July 2016

Gold Today –Gold closed in New York at $1,319.80 on Tuesday after Monday’s close at $1,314.10. 

–         The $: € was down at $1.0991 up from $1.007.

–         The dollar index rose to 97.29 from 97.03 Tuesday.

–         The Yen was weaker at 105.64 from Tuesday’s 104.13 against the dollar.

–         The Yuan was stronger at 6.6709 from 6.6754 Tuesday.

–         The Pound Sterling was weaker at $1.3120 down from Tuesday’s$1.3081.

Yuan Gold Fix

Shanghai prices were in line with New York’s close and London held it at the same level adjusting for a slight exchange rate change.

With China the world’s largest gold producer [450 tonnes] and the Shanghai Gold Exchange the largest global gold market, we expect to see its influence over the gold price rise substantially, unless it is in the interests of the P.B. of C. to hold prices around the levels seen in London and New York. The P.B. of C. as the main counterparty is able to do that.

A Psychiatric Diagnosis of the U.S. Market: Schizophrenic Disconnect From Reality, Bipolar Mania, Psychotic Delusions of Wealth

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2016

If you think a delusional market is healthy, it’s time for a psychiatric exam.

What diagnosis would an experienced psychiatrist offer when presented with the bizarre behavior of the U.S. stock market? We assume that the wild mood swings of greed and fear are “normal” for markets devoted to short-term profit and speculation, but the stock market’s disconnect from reality is far beyond mere mood swings.
The stock market thinks it’s solidly on pavement, but in reality it’s like a car flying off a cliff: the Wiley E. Coyote moment is just ahead. There’s nothing but air beneath the stock market.
Consider the reality of PE expansion from a price-earnings (PE) of 10 at the bottom in 2009 to 18+ today, while profits are stagnant. And what is driving this expansion other than a delusional belief that profits will magically reverse and log massive gains in the second half of 2016?

Silver Refuses To Buckle – The News Doctors

investmentresearchdynamics.com / By Dave Kranzler / July 26, 2016

Something interesting and unusual has been developing in the silver market for several months.  The Comex operators have been throwing a record amount  of Comex paper silver at the market in an attempt to control the price.   The last time the silver futures open interest was as high as it is now, silver was about to bust through $50.    Eric Dubin of The News Doctors published  a news brief today on the topic, reprinted below.

When we were laboring through the 2011-2015 bear market cycle, constant snap backs the likes of which silver is producing were never to be seen.

Global Stocks, Futures Continue Rise On Apple, Japan Stimulus; Yellen On Deck

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jul 27, 2016 6:40 AM

Following a rollercoaster night for the Japanese Yen, when following several media headlines Abe was said to have announced a stimulus package that would be more than JPY28 trillion, which however upon more careful reflection appeared less then met the eye (more in a subsequent post), Japanese stocks surged 1.7% while the USDJPY spiked but well off overnight highs, pushing risk assets higher.

Offsetting Japan’s exuberance was a sharp drop in Chinese stocks, which tumbled the most in 6 weeks, however closing well off the lows, down -1.9% after the 21st Century Business Herald reported the country’s banking regulator is again considering cracking down on the $3.6 trillion market for wealth management products, however yesterday’s AAPL earnings beat fueled optimism over the outlook for the global economy and served as impetus to push European stocks firmly in the green despite a collapse in Deutsche Bank profit and a drop in revenues across the board, which also helped push US equity futures higher, with the S&P set to open green for yet another session.

The Fed concludes its two-day meeting later today (no press conference), with Yellen widely expected to announce nothing, although questions remain if the recent onslaught of good economic news will not awak the “hawkish” FOMC from a deep slumber and prompt the chairwoman to once again flip flop and hint at a September rate hike.

The Day Data-Dependence Died: US Macro Has Longest-Winning Streak In History

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jul 27, 2016

Something ‘odd’ is going on. Amid the plethora of 11-foot-tall-men multiple-standard deviation beats in recent economic data, the Citi Macro Surprise Index did something it has never done before – it rose for 21 days straight – breaking the last 5 years trends of seasonal dumps (into mid-year) and pumps (into fiscal year-end)…

After 18 months of disappointment, out of nowhere, the index ripped higher at the fastest rate since 2009 to its highest since Jan 2014.

More Banking Mystifications

wallstreetexaminer.com / by James Kwak via The Baseline Scenario /  

Apparently, both parties have platform planks calling for the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, the law that separated investment banking from commercial banking until it was finally repealed in 1999 (after being watered down by the Federal Reserve beginning in the late 1980s). Bringing back Glass-Steagall in some form would force megabanks like JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America to split up; it would also force Goldman Sachs to get rid of the retail banking operations it started in a bid to get access to cheap deposits.

In his article discussing this possibility, Andrew Ross Sorkin of the Times slips in this:

“Whether reinstating the law is good idea or not, the short-term implications are decidedly negative: It would most likely mean a loss of jobs as part of a slowdown in lending from the biggest banks.”

I looked down to the next paragraph for the explanation, but he had already moved on to another unsubstantiated claim (that the U.S. banking industry would be at a competitive disadvantage). So, I thought, maybe it’s so obvious that Glass-Steagall would reduce lending that Sorkin didn’t think it was worth explaining. I thought about that for a while. I couldn’t see it.

The World Is On The Verge Of Monetary And Financial Chaos

kingworldnews.com / July 26, 2016

As global markets await the final day of the Fed meeting, the world is on the verge of monetary and financial chaos.

This note from the late, great Richard Russell is perfect as the Fed heads into the final day of its meeting:  “As for the dollar, it is currently seen as the only safe haven currency on the planet. Since the current fiat dollar is a fantasy created by the Fed, I have little faith in its future.

Why The Donald Might Be Good For Peace

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / By Brian Cloughley / 

Donald Trump is erratic. We all know that. It is insulting to assert, in the words of Britain’s new Foreign Secretary, the erratic Boris Johnson, that he is «frankly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States», but he’s certainly unpredictable and says some things that are, to put it mildly, intriguing. The fact remains that he could be next president of the United States, which makes it important to look at what he might do if that comes about, especially in the light of America’s military catastrophes so far this century.

Obama followed his predecessors in expanding America’s iron fist as self-appointed global policeman. He vastly increased the US military presence around the world and intensified the Pentagon’s aggressive confrontations with China and Russia.

In China’s case this was effected by sending US Naval E-P3 electronic surveillance aircraft on missions close to the mainland, deploying EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft to Clark Air Base in the Philippines, ordering B-52 nuclear bombers to overfly the South China Sea where the US Navy also carried out extended manoeuvres by massive strike groups of nuclear-armed aircraft carriers and guided missile cruisers. All this in a region where the US has not the slightest territorial interest or claim. China’s Sea is 12,000 kilometres, 7,000 miles, from the American mainland, yet Washington considers it the sacred right and duty of the United States to act as a global gendarme and give orders to China about its posture in its own back yard, where there has not been one instance of interference with commercial shipping passing through that region.

REALIST NEWS – Leaked Emails: Plans To Reward Big Donors With Federal Appointments

jsnip4Published on Jul 27, 2016

Assange: “A Lot More Material” Will Be Released

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jul 27, 2016

One month ago, when Wikileaks’ Julian Assange told ITV’s Richard Peston that he would publish “enough evidence” to indict Hillary Clinton, few took him seriously. And while Hillary has not been indicted – yet – last Friday’s leak has already managed to wreak havoc and has led to revelations of cronyism and collusion within the Democratic party and the media, the resignation of the DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as well as chaos on the first day of the Democratic convention.

Hence, why we believe Assange will be taken more seriously this time.

Earlier today, Assange told CNN that Wikileaks might release “a lot more material” relevant to the US electoral campaign. Assange spoke to CNN following the release of nearly 20,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails.

The topic then turned to the topic du jour: “did Putin do it”?

Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources.

Marc Faber: Invest 25% Of Investment Portfolios In Gold Bullion

goldcore.com / By Mark O’Byrne / July 27, 2016

Marc Faber has told advisers to invest 25% of investment portfolios in gold bullion.

The author of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, urged investment professionals at the CFA Institute Conference in Chicago that 25 percent of a portfolio should be allocated to gold given the very significant risks facing investors today.

***

The Chicago Tribune reports that Faber advised that gold is a “protection from a dangerous combination of tremendous government debt and massive bond-buying by central banks globally trying to fight off recession with near-zero interest rates.”

Judge Rules Bitcoin Isn’t Money Because It “Can’t be Hidden Under A Mattress”

zerohedge.com / by Everett Numbers via TheAntiMedia.org / Jul 26, 2016

In a landmark decision, a Florida judge dismissed charges of money laundering against a Bitcoin seller on Monday following expert testimony showing state law did not apply to the cryptocurrency.

Michell Espinoza was charged with three felony charges related to money laundering in 2014, but what appears to have helped to clear him of any and all wrongdoing was testimony given just a few weeks ago by an economics professor.

“This is the most fascinating thing I’ve heard in this courtroom in a long time,” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Teresa Mary Pooler said after hearing Barry University professor Charles Evans present evidence during a May hearing that Bitcoin was more akin to“poker chips that people are willing to buy from you,”according to theMiami Herald.

Evans was given $3,000 in Bitcoin by defense attorneys for sharing his expertise, the newspaper reported.

Judge Pooler found the cryptocurrency, which is based on verified encrypted transactions that are recorded on a public ledger, did not constitute “tangible wealth” and“cannot be hidden under a mattress like cash and gold bars,” reported the Herald.

Coming Soon: Trumped! (Part 4—-America’s Rolling LBO)

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / July 26, 2016

In effect, America has undergone a rolling national LBO since the Gipper’s time in office. It is the result of the Washington/Wall Street policy consensus in favor of permanent deficit finance, stock market-centered “trickle-down” stimulus by the Fed and massive borrowing by the household and business sectors of the private economy.

So the U.S. economy is now stuck in the ditch because it has leveraged itself to the hilt over the past three decades. The vast majority of Americans are no longer living the dream because Wall Street speculators and Washington politicians alike have led them into a debt-fueled fantasy world that is coming to a dead end.

Indeed, this deformation has been long in the making and reaches back nearly a half-century. To wit, once the Federal Reserve was liberated from the yoke of Bretton Woods and the redeemability of dollars for gold by Nixon’s folly at Camp David in August 1971, financial history broke into an altogether new channel.

As shown in the chart below, since 1971 total public and private debt outstanding soared from $1.6 trillion to $64 trillion or by 40X. By contrast, nominal GDP expanded by only 16X. The very visage of the chart tells you that the former is crushing the latter.

Free Stuff, Monopoly Money, and Free Passes

deviantinvestor.com / by Gary Christenson / July 27, 2016

THINKING OF THE RNC AND DNC…

Politicians get elected by telling voters what they want to hear, especially that voters will receive a pile of “free stuff.” Politicians are (usually) funded by large corporate interests, particularly the financial industry, military contractors, Big “Ag,” and Big “Pharma.” It takes $ billions to buy a Presidential election and large corporate interests expect favorable access and legislation as a result of their huge contributions. It is easy to see.

Conclusion: Politicians tell voters what they want to hear and distribute “free stuff” but they do what they must to repay contributors and solicit even more money to win the next election. But in reality, voters and promises to voters become collateral damage.

DNC Day 2: Raucous Roll-Call & Bubba Speaks – Live Feed

If you thought yesterday was chaos – with Debbie down, moaning media, booing Bernie fans – today could start with another raucous rabble as the state roll-call vote will take place. Debbie Wassserman Schultz’s just-as-biased replacement Donna Brazile will address the crowd (grab the popcorn), as will Nancy Pelosi, but the headliner of the night – surely there to doom-and-gloom more evil Trumpiness – is Bill Clinton.

Clinton & the DNC Are Agents for Terrorist & Communist Nations-This Should Go Viral

thecommonsenseshow.com / By Dave Hodges / July 26th, 2016

The Democrats are nothing more than the reflection of Hillary Clinton’s true nature, loyalties and political beliefs.

***

In contrast, here is a typical Donald Trump background.

***

If anyone is stupid enough to vote for Hillary Clinton this fall, they need to realize that she is not even masquerading as an American. I have previously documented how Clinton has sold uranium to the Russians (ie nuclear grade material). We all know about the email scandals. We know about Benghazi. She is an utlimate liberal who will complete Obama’s job of giving away the country. Remember, the Russians and 15 other foreign nations have paid into the Clinton foundation. This is a felony. Foreigners are not allowed to contribute to Presidential campaigns.

BitGold’s Biggest Deficiencies: Peter Schiff, Part II

bullionbullscanada.com / by Jeff Nielson / 26 July 2016

As noted in Part I, the motivation for writing this article is what appears on its surface to be a large contradiction: Peter Schiff, until recently one of BitGold’s most strident critics, is now BitGold’s newest business partner. The justification for writing this (two-part) article is that it was not possible to fully encapsulate the entire contradiction in a single installment.

Schiff’s more recent attacks on BitGold began (back in March) with the assertion that he was “warning potential gold-buyers about another gold ripoff.” While rhetoric such as that can be attributed as simply the crass intent to bash a competitor of his own business, it is far less easy to write-off Schiff’s more specific criticisms in that manner.

Schiff claimed that the vast majority of BitGold’s current customer base is composed of tiny accounts, lured to BitGold by its promotional offer of “free gold” for new accounts. He asserted that because of the cost of such marketing and all of the advertising spent in pursuit of these accounts, BitGold’s business model is presently unsustainable. This appears to be correct.

Schiff claimed that he, himself, was not interested in having lots of customers with tiny accounts, because these are “money-losing accounts.” From a purely administrative standpoint, this also appears to be correct.

Schiff claimed that BitGold’s management did not “have any idea of the size of the bite that they are going to try to chew” to maintain all of these money-losing accounts. This remains to be seen. However, the veracity of this particular assertion is tied into another of Schiff’s volleys.

The Law Of The Jungle Is Far Superior To The Ideology Of Globalism

alt-market.com / Brandon Smith / Wednesday, 27 July 2016

In 1991 George Bush Sr., in at least two separate speeches, announced an active geopolitical endgame for global stability; something he called the “New World Order.” This was not the first time the concept of the NWO had been uttered by a prominent figure. Fabian socialist H.G. Welles wrote an entire book on the ideology decades before, in 1940, entitled ‘The New World Order’, and even scripted a thinly veiled propaganda film on the rise of globalism titled ‘Things To Come’. The core of this ideology is the institution of global governance and the erasure of sovereign nation states, ostensibly in order to end the persistent threat of world war.

It all sounds very noble on the surface, but there is much more to total globalization that the elites do not discuss very openly or very often.

A key quote from Bush’s White House speech to the nation on the eve of Operation Desert Storm in Iraq explains much behind the NWO concept:

“We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order — a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful — and we will be — we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.”
