Six years after QE started, and just about the time when we for the first time said that the primary consequence of QE would be unprecedented wealth and class inequality (in addition to fiat collapse, even if that particular bridge has not yet been crossed), even the [...]

A swan dive in commodity prices followed by the latest stock market correction has investors talking about the “D word” once again. References to deflation abound in the news while economists seriously discuss the possibility of a global economic recession. What, they [...]

Today’s theme shouldn’t surprise you at all – of the horrific manipulation of every aspect of the U.S. economy and financial markets. This month it has surged to unprecedented levels; first of all, ahead of the “all-important” mid-term elections; secondly, to “cover” the planned end of overt [...]

An interesting article on MarketWatch today caught my attention. The subhead is the money quote, “Back in April every economist in a survey thought yields would rise. Guess what they did next.”
Every? The article refers to 67 economists polled by Bloomberg, all of whom [...]

Last Wednesday the markets plunged on a vague recognition that the central bank promoted recovery story might not be on the level. But that tremor didn’t last long.

By now, 6 years after America’s grand experiment in recreating Soviet-style central planning started, it should be clear to all except that subset of Homo Sapiens also known as “economists”, that the Fed’s QE is not helping the economy. In fact, it is merely boosting [...]

We have all seen it countless times before: visual confirmation that without the Fed’s (and all other central banks’) liquidity pump, the S&P would be about 70% lower than were it is now.
Most recently, this was shown last Friday in “Another Reminder How Addicted Markets [...]

As I wrote yesterday, markets have become schizophrenic and volatility has exploded. It is obvious the uncertainty regarding “QE” (monetization) is at the heart of this renewed volatility. I do want to mention and remind you of past crashes and vicious bear markets, they ALL have seen [...]

As commented previously, the reason for today’s 30 point rip in emini futures from the lows hit just 4 hours ago, was a test of the ECB emergency BTFD service, today provided courtesy of Reuters which, just after the European close, gave what is ever more [...]

As futures opened last night, it was all looking so bright as the ‘rebound’ extended and every knife-catching “in it for the long-run” manager was proved ‘right’. Then Eric Rosengren pissed in the punchbowl – explaining QE will end in October “unless somethinh dramatic happens” [...]
