REALIST NEWS – Beware of Burstcoin and Youtuber “Bitcoin Official”

Examining The Most Hated Bull Market Ever

zerohedge.com / by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmehtAdvice.com / Oct 22, 2017

From last week:

“The seemingly “impervious” advance since the election last November, has had an interesting “stair step” pattern with each advance commencing from a breakout of a several month 3%-ish consolidation range. Furthermore, each advance then pushes to a 3-standard deviation extreme, black circles, of the 50-dma before beginning the next consolidation trading range.”

***

The last leg higher has been directly responsive to the ramp up in the political “marketing surge” surrounding “tax cuts and tax reform.” With the House having already passed their respective budget resolutions, late Thursday, the Senate passed a budget blueprint for the next fiscal year. With both of the “budget resolutions” in place, it was seen as clearing a hurdle to the goal of overhauling the tax code.

“It Could Open A Pandora’s Box”: Italy’s 2 Richest Regions Are Voting In Historic Autonomy Referendums

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 22, 2017 

Voters in Italy’s two wealthiest northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto are voting on Sunday in referendums for greater autonomy from Rome, in which a positive outcome could fan regional tensions in Europe at a time when neighboring Spain is cracking down to prevent Catalonia from breaking away.

***

Lombardy, which includes Milan, and Veneto, which houses the tourist powerhouse Venice, are home to around a quarter of Italy’s population and account for 30% of Italy’s economy, the Eurozone’s third largest. Unlike Catalonia, the consultative votes are only the beginning of a process which could over time lead to powers being devolved from Rome. Also unlike Catalonia, which held an independence referendum on Oct. 1 despite it being ruled unconstitutional, the Italian referendums are within the law. Like Catalonia, however, Lombardy and Veneto complain they pay far more in taxes than they receive.

Boom. Bitcoin Hits $6,000 And A $100 Billion Market Cap As Helicopter Ben and Jamie Demon Warn The End Is Near

dollarvigilante.com / by Jeff Berwick / October 20, 2017

Bitcoin rose more than 6% today to surpass, for the first time ever, the $6,000 US mark.

***

More interestingly, bitcoin just surpassed $100 billion in total market capitalization. Or, as Coindesk puts it, $0.1 trillion.

Yes, we are now quantifying bitcoin in the trillions.

When we start talking in the trillions we are beginning to talk about a shift in the financial and monetary system.

And, as I pointed out recently, bitcoin is still but a glimmer in the all-seeing eye, so to speak, of the overall monetary picture.

Trump Extends Feud With “Wacky Wilson” To Sixth Day, Says Fake News “Finally Sinking In”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 22, 2017 

In a relatively tame by his weekend standards Twitter outburst, President Trump on Sunday again ripped into Rep. Frederica Wilson, extending his feud with the “wacky” Florida Democrat into its sixth day, over the contents of his call to the widow of a fallen U.S. soldier. “Wacky Congresswoman Wilson is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party, a disaster for Dems. You watch her in action & vote R!” Trump tweeted.

Three on a Match: US Tax Reform, ECB and Bank of Canada Meetings

marctomarket.com / by Marc Chandler / October 22, 2017

There are many economic reports that will vie for investors’ attention.  The flash PMI readings for the eurozone may be the most contemporaneous data, while the UK and US are the first G7 countries to report Q3 GDP.  Japan will provide September CPI figures, and the both Sweden’s Riksbank and Norway’s Norges Bank hold policy meetings.

Spain’s reassertion of its authority over the secessionist-minded Catalonia will draw attention, and investors will digest the results of the Japanese national elections.  Abe’s gamble  with a snap election appears to have paid off, and the government is seems set to have retained its super-majority. Japan’s election concludes an unlikely twelve-month period where all of the G5 countries held national elections.  The Czech Republic election results seem consistent with the shift to the right by the Visegrad Group, as well as many countries in western Europe.

We focus on three developments that may have the broadest impact.  The first is the Bank of Canada meeting, which is not often thought to have global implications, especially given that policy will remain on hold.  However, the reason we think it is important is that the Bank of Canada with two rate hikes this year as seen as the epitome of “end of divergence” meme that seemingly became consensus.

Exit Polls Project Sweeping Victory, Supermajority For Japan’s Abe

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 22, 2017 

As widely expected, Japan Prime Minister Abe’s ruling coalition is set for a sweeping victory in Sunday’s general election, and may retain the two-thirds parliamentary majority needed to revise Japan’s constitution, according to an NHK exit poll.

***

Shortly after polls closed at 8pm, an NHK exit poll showed that Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party and coalition partner Komeito are set to win between 281 and 336 seats of the 465 total, boosting Abe’s chances of becoming Japan’s longest serving political leader: the Prime Minister needs 233 for a simple majority and 310 for a supermajority. Opposition parties are set to split the rest, with the left-leaning Constitutional Democratic Party projected to come in second. Actual results are now being counted.

Was Marc Faber Blackballed For Speaking The Truth?

market-ticker.org / by Karl Denninger / 2017-10-22

Well-known “Doctor Doom” Marc Faber was effectively expelled (“resigned” technically) from three boards and CNBC has said they will not book him in the future after his latest newsletter came out.

In it he said:

“Thank God white people populated America and not the blacks,” wrote Mr. Faber, who is managing director with investment advisory and fund management firm Marc Faber Ltd., in his latest monthly newsletter.

“Otherwise the U.S. would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority.”

Forget ISIS, “Government Corruption” Tops Americans’ Biggest Fears

As Americans gear up to celebrate Halloween at the end of October, a recent survey has revealed the fears that really keep people up at night.

Low Interest Rates Subsidize Wealthy Households

mises.org / Hal Snarr / October 22, 2017

When the economy begins to sink into recession, politicians, mainstream economists, policy wonks, and the Federal Reserve begin beating the economic stimulus drum.

Politicians, however, disagree over the type of stimulus to implement. The center-left party proposes greater expenditures on public assistance programs. The center-right party supports permanent tax rate reductions. The center-left party opposes tax cuts because they say it benefits the rich. The center-right party opposes raising government expenditures because it increases government debt. This discord generally results in a temporary compromise where government expenditures are boosted and tax rates are cut. This compromise is called “discretionary fiscal stimulus.”

While the debate over discretionary fiscal stimulus has to overcome Senate filibusters and heated House debates, the central bankers at the Fed quickly implement monetary stimulus. Boosting aggregate demand is the intended purpose of it and discretionary fiscal stimulus. In mainstream economic theory, greater aggregate demand lowers unemployment and raises GDP. In spite of grave warnings from Austrian-school economists, the Fed pursues these goals by lowering interest rates via an expansion credit.

The productivity myth

goldmoney.com / By Alasdair Macleod / October 19, 2017

Every now and then, there’s a rash of commentary on national productivity. And for the British, productivity is all part of the Brexit angst, with the OECD, the Treasury, the Bank of England and Remainers all saying the average Brit’s poor productivity just goes to show how much they need the certain comfort of being in the EU. As Hilaire Belloc put it, we must hold on to nurse, for fear of something worse.

Only this week, the OECD came out with a paper repeating its disproved nonsense about the economic consequences of Brexit, even recommending Britain should hold a second referendum to reverse the Brexit decision. To back up its analysis it claimed Britain’s labour productivity is at a standstill, while that of France, Germany the United States and the OECD averages are all improving.i

Regular readers of my articles will know I have no truck with statist statistics, averages and the neo-Keynesian analysis that goes with them. The econometricians’ analysis of productivity is a prime example of why statistics derived from questionable information should be disregarded entirely, as I will show. You can prove anything with statistics, except the truth. The OECD, which is the source of the productivity statistics quoted by politicians, uses statistics not in a genuine search for the truth, but as a cheerleader for statism. Being based in Paris this institution is particularly sympathetic to the basic concepts of European statism. It’s a wonder they tolerate private enterprise at all.

REALIST NEWS – Housing Bailout Revealed As China Property Sales Drop For First Time In 30 Months

jsnip4, Published on Oct 22, 2017

Ah, The Spanish Government CAN Do Math

market-ticker.org / by Karl Denninger / 2017-10-21 16:34

All revolutions and secession events are prosecuted by small but real minorities.  In the US Revolution about three percent of the people actually took arms and fought the British.  We won.

Keep that in mind, because Spain is dealing with a secession movement right now, not so much a revolution.  There the numbers are somewhat different — but not that much.  In the Civil War about 2.5 million out of 18.5 million, or roughly 13% of the population fought on the Union side; on the Confederate side it was in the same general range (accurate records are more-difficult for the Confederacy.)  Most of the Union solders were volunteers.

Of course the secession of the Confederacy failed.

Reality is that you often have plenty of people who are very pissed off one way or another but few who will take arms on either side.  For this reason it’s not so simple as to say “you need half.”  You don’t, in fact, need anywhere near half the population in order to win, but those who choose it must be willing to die for what they believe in.  The exact number is hard to pin down, which makes all such movements, to some degree, a game of poker — and you never really know if the other side is bluffing.

Spain has figured out (a bit late, I think) that with about 40% of the population of Catalonia voting (after the Spanish government attempted to brutalize or arrest anyone attempting to vote, with some success) and the vast majority of those voting choosing secession there is a real risk that the “success” threshold is within grasp.

Unprecedented Housing Bailout Revealed, As China Property Sales Drop For First Time In 30 Months

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 21, 2017 8:29 PM

Back in March, we explained why the “fate of the world economy is in the hands of China’s housing bubble.” The answer was simple: for the Chinese population, and growing middle class, to keep spending vibrant and borrowing elevated, it had to feel comfortable and confident that its wealth will keep rising. However, unlike the US where the stock market is the ultimate barometer of the confidence boosting “wealth effect”, in China it has always been about housing: three quarters of Chinese household assets are parked in real estate, compared to only 28% in the US with the remainder invested financial assets.

Chinese Central Planners Forecast “Weak Growth” in Manufacturing and Housing…

Panda Reacts To Finding Lion Tracks Amid Shrinking Bamboo Forest !

A Chinese central planner, Zhang Yong, the vice-head of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), made a statement today (during the communist party congress) that carries much more significance than most people recognize.

The statement was made on behalf of communist China’s central planners and is directed toward what sectors of their economy they will focus investment (emphasis mine).

BEIJING (Reuters) – China will introduce measures aimed at guiding private investment into areas that have a higher growth potential, a senior official with the state planning agency said on Saturday.

China also would take steps to lower the investment threshold for private investors, said Zhang Yong, the vice-head of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), during a briefing on the sidelines of China’s Communist Party Congress.

LedgerX Trades Over $1 Million In Bitcoin Options And Swaps In First Week

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Oct 21, 2017 7:30 PM

Bitcoin derivatives clearinghouse LedgerX has announced that the first bitcoin derivatives trades have taken place on its platform – an important milestone for the nascent digital currency market that could open the door to more institutional involvement and, some say, the creation of the first bitcoin-focused ETF.

LedgerX confirmed rumors that it had already started clearing bitcoin derivatives trades in a statement provided to CoinDesk and a handful of other media outlets. According to figures provided by the company, LedgerX facilitated trading in 176 swaps and options contracts in its first week, an amount with a notional values of more than $1 million, according to CEO Paul Chou.

  “This week, a new standard is set for transparency, oversight and counter-party assurance. Institutional investors and traders can now rely on a guaranteed clearing and settlement process when transacting bitcoin contracts,” Chou said.

As CoinDesk points out, while the initial LedgerX trades appear to be exclusively bitcoin focused, the details of the license granted to the company by the CFTC in July allow for the creation of derivatives for other digital currencies as well. The company is reportedly working with options trading shops, asset managers, hedge funds, bitcoin miners, family offices, investment banks and virtually anybody else interested in helping it create a market for the new contracts.

 “Our regulated, institutional-grade platform enables participants who were sitting on the sidelines, to enter the digital currency market.”

LedgerX is licensed as both a swap execution facility (SEF) and a derivatives clearing organization (DCO).

US Treasury Rates Hit 10-Year Highs

Wolf Street

wolfstreet.com / by  • 

But the yield spread collapses to lowest since early in the Financial Crisis. Even the Fed is worried.

US government bonds fell across the board on Friday. Yields rose and set a number of 10-year highs, in some cases ten years to the day.

Many people have pointed at the Senate where the prospects of the tax cut are said to have “brightened” when the Senate approved a budget resolution. The tax cuts, if they make it, are said to lower government revenues by $1.5 trillion over 10 years. So maybe the bond market is starting to pay attention to government deficits and the national debt once again. But the bond market hasn’t paid attention in many, many years, and until the proof is in, I doubt it.

There are, however, other factors that predate Friday by many months. In fact, the moves in Treasury yields for maturities up to two years have been fairly consistent: yields have been surging.
