“The limited historical experience with deflation shows that, once it starts, deflation can become entrenched and associated with prolonged periods of very weak economic performance.” – Janet Yellen (4/16/14).
If we had only the Federal Reserve heads to rely on, it would be [...]

Central Bankers will never openly admit that they or their policies have failed. Moreover, they do not rush into sudden tightening (more on this in a moment). But one can begin to notice subtle changes in their language and actions that indicate they have noticed what’s [...]

We’ve enjoyed a pleasant break – prepare for more economic storms ahead … The challenge of managing the exit from QE and returning interest rates to a more normal 5pc or so level will remain … ‘It now appears that (a slight blip at the end [...]

For all the talk about QE this, HFT that, crony capitalism, cold war 2.0, hyperinflation, hyperdeflation, social inequality, Keynesian dead end, global financial meltdown, perhaps the one more tangible threats to mankind as a whole (and to the future underfunded healthcare costs) is something fatr simpler: [...]

Yesterday, I noted Zero Hedge’s headline at the start of a quiet, post-Easter session in which European markets were closed; i.e., “Sleepy Holiday Market prepares for scripted, daily low-volume levitation.” Today, on yet another quiet news morning, Zero Hedge writes “Traders walk in on another [...]

The Keynesian economists managing or advising the world’s Central Banks have always averred that they could pull us out of the weakest recovery in the post-WWII era if they were allowed to have their way.
Their “way” involves rampant debt monetization, also called Quantitative Easing or [...]

Yellen shows her hand … Yellen said this week that she is more worried that a shock to the economy might lead to deflation — a debilitating spiral downward in prices and demand — than rampant inflation. Those who cling to old certainties about the economic [...]
With continued turmoil and uncertainty in global markets, today KWN is publishing another important piece that was written by a 60-year market veteran. The Godfather of newsletter writers, Richard Russell, made this ominous prediction, “In a matter of months, I see the dollar crashing.” Russell also stated that he is [...]

I always thought that Mario Draghi was a complete dunce on fundamental economics, but he has now sealed the case in his own words. The reason the ECB is about ready to unleash its own version of QE, it seems, is that “moar inflation” would facilitate [...]

When the ECB tweeted on April 3 that its Governing Council had been “unanimous in its commitment to using also unconventional instruments within the mandate to cope with prolonged low inflation,” it was threatening in less than 140 characters to deploy [...]

This is a distressing time for gold and silver bulls like me who are constantly on the lookout for a turnaround in the precious metals sector. I’m confident that it will come but not just yet, as a final capitulation has not taken place. On 18th November [...]
We are investing in a world that has not the reached peak of central bank balance sheets. Even with the tapering by the Federal Reserve, it is continuing to buy more long-term assets than it did when QE3+ was announced in late-2012. The Fed’s balance sheet will [...]

I recently pointed out that the Fed’s 5-year campaign to drive the 30-year mortgage rate from 6.5% to 3.3% had accomplished nothing except to touch off another of those pointless “refi” booms which enable homeowners to swap an existing mortgage for a new one carrying a [...]

When it comes to Krugman’s views on any particular topic, he may be right and he may be wrong, but whatever his opinion he always has a much to say about it (even if the factual backing is of secondary importance or outright missing). Today, his [...]

Despite Janet Yellen’s meet-and-greet with the unemployed and criminal classes, the absence of Ben Bernanke has seemingly empowered several Fed heads to be just a little too frank and honest about their views. The uncomfortable truthsayer this time is none other than Dallas Fed’s Fisher:

The US Federal Reserve has been printing money since 2011 to cover USGovt debt securities in a frenetic manner. They have lost control.They call it stimulus, when it is actually the opposite. It does assist the speculators with nearly zero cost money to borrow, but one [...]

Germany appears to have capitulated. The Bundesbank has dropped its opposition to extraordinary measures, like ending the sterilization of the SMP bond purchases, and has even dropped its visceral opposition to QE, if it can be structured properly to keep within the ECB’s mandate.

Moments ago the Nikkei strategically leaked a report that the Japanese cabinet office, quite expectedly, will downgrade its economic assessment in its April report. “Expected” because as we reported, discretionary spending following the sales tax hike, has gotten crushed. Also not unexpected, the USDJPY took the [...]
The Dow fell 143 points on Friday. Gold was just about flat. Why the fall in stock prices? Many reasons were proposed, but no one knows for sure. There may not be a reason at all. Stocks don’t need a reason to [...]

The Managing Director of the IMF and the chief economist are making no bones about it. More action by the ECB is inevitable. It is “just a question of timing,” says Lagarde and “sooner was better than later”, chimed Blanchard, the chief economist.

Last week BTFD failed for the Nasdaq and that class of talking-heads that we like to call asset-gatherers promulgated that there was no need to worry… this is a small segment of the market dragging down a high-beta index, rotate to bigger caps. The S&P has [...]

When one thinks of the bailout-taking, London-Whale-suffering, regulatory-fine-paying, pay-rise-taking CEO of JPMorgan, the first analogy is not the philosophical similarities between Jamie Dimon and Martin Luther King. But, according to Dimon’s letter to shareholders below, he feels injustice has been done and quotes MLK on the [...]
"Many gold bugs readily admit silver to be more depressed than gold. Ted Butler stated long ago that not even gold has a users association. The fact of the existence of this group is another of many proofs that synthetic money creators hate and fear silver even more than their loathing for gold." - Charles Savoie
