Yes, the USA is in a low velocity “recovery” despite the massive Federal Reserve monetary stimulus.


Internal Bleeding, Cheap Tech, And Falling Angels / by John Rubino on November 30, 2015

Think of “market internals” as the blood pressure and insulin levels of the financial world. They operate below the surface, frequently unnoticed, but over time they have a big say in the health of the patient.

And right now they’re pointing to a heart attack.

Let’s start with junk bonds. These are loans to financially and/or operationally-weak companies that because of their weakness have to pay up to borrow. Such bonds have a risk/return profile that’s more akin to equities than to, say Treasury bonds, and they trade accordingly, rising and falling on the likelihood of default rather than their relative yield.

Recession means higher default rates for weak borrowers, so when the economy is slowing down or otherwise hitting a rough patch, the junk bond market is often where it registers first. Lately, junk has been tanking relative to stocks (chart created by Hussman Funds).


Paris Is Prologue / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 16:00

  “Europe only succeeds if we work together.”
~ Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany since 2005


  • The recent attacks in Paris evoke strong emotions for many people, but investors need to look through those feelings to the short, medium, and long-term implications. I believe Paris may mark an important turning point for Europe and the global business cycle… but for different reasons than you may think.
  • The immediate impact on France’s economy will be minor and short-lived as long as it proves to be an isolated incident. There are significant downside risks to economic growth if terror attacks in Europe become the new normal.
  • Europe’s Muslim population faces an unemployment rate around 50% compared to the EU average of 10% and xenophobia is rising after the Paris attacks. From that perspective, Europe is becoming a breeding ground for radical Islam.
  • As refugees flock to Europe from Middle East, the foundations of modern Europe are breaking down. Walls, fences, and security checkpoints are going up all over the continent and countries are becoming more isolated from one another.


People In Europe, Stock Up!! EU Signs Deal With Turkey Today! Also, Greece Banks Taken Over By Investment Funds!

InvestmentWatch / Submitted by IWB, on November 29th, 2015

European Union, Turkey Set to Sign Agreement on Migrants
11/29/15 AT 11:19 AM

Under the draft deal the EU is offering 3 billion euros ($3.2 billion) toimprove the livelihood of the 2.2 million Syrians now living in Turkey so that they are less likely to board boats for nearby Greek islands.

The EU wants Turkish authorities to make that journey more difficult and to keep out more of the Afghans and other Asians who cross Turkey on their way to Europe. Ankara is also to take back people who reach Greece but fail to get political asylum.

“Both sides agree that the EU-Turkey readmission agreement will become fully applicable from June 2016,” the draft conclusions of the meeting said.

Turkey has pressed for more money, and the draft left the door open to adjust the amount later.

“The need for and nature of this funding will be reviewed in the light of the developing situation. As Turkey hosts more than 2.2 million Syrians and as it has spent $8 billion, the EU thus underlined the importance of burden-sharing within the framework of Turkey-EU cooperation,” the draft said.


Saudi Arabia Refuses To Take Even A Single Syrian Refugee / By Michael Snyder, on November 29th, 2015

If Saudi Arabia won’t take in Syrian refugees, why should the United States?  In recent weeks, we have heard a whole lot from Barack Obama about our “moral obligation” to take in refugees from Syria.  Well, if there is a “moral obligation” to help these refugees, then why aren’t more wealthy Islamic nations stepping up to the plate?  According to Amnesty International, since the beginning of the Syrian civil war Saudi Arabia has not accepted a single Syrian refugee.  Neither has Kuwait.  Neither has Qatar.  Neither has the United Arab Emirates.  These nations are absolutely swimming in money, and yet they have slammed the door on these desperately needy Islamic refugees.  So what precisely does that tell us?

When I first learned about this, I was quite upset.  So much pressure is being put on the U.S, Europe and other wealthy nations to take in vast numbers of Syrian refugees, and yet the wealthiest Islamic nations in the Middle East are completely shunning them.  The following comes from TruNews

While the United States and Europe argue over how many Syrian refugees to allow in, the richest Persian Gulf states have accepted exactly zero.


Inside The ISIS Propaganda Machine: An Up-Close Look At A Militant Media Strategy / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 16:30

“I’ve grown used to IS ultraviolence, but this video was different. Different because, at my office desk, the place where I conduct all my research, I have a photograph of myself with my now-wife, dad and step-mum taken at that very same Palmyran theatre almost five years ago.”

That’s a quote from Charlie Winter, Senior Researcher at the Quilliam Foundation, which describes itself as “the world’s first counter-extremism think tank, set up to address the unique challenges of citizenship, identity, and belonging in a globalized world.”

The reference is to a video ISIS released over the summer depicting a mass execution at Palmyra’s Roman Theatre. The most chilling thing about this particular Islamic State murder montage: the executioners are all children.

The Bizarre Explanation For Why The U.S. Has Avoided Bombing ISIS Oil Wells / By Michael Snyder, on November 29th, 2015

Why hasn’t the U.S. bombed the oil wells that ISIS controls into oblivion by now?  Would you believe that it is because the Obama administration “didn’t want to do environmental damage”?  Former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell has publicly admitted that we have purposely avoided damaging the main source of income for ISIS, and his explanation for why we were doing this is utterly bizarre.  But at this point what could the Obama administration say that would actually make sense?  Everyone now knows that ISIS has been making hundreds of millions of dollars selling oil in Turkey, and that this has been done with the full knowledge and complicity of the Obama White House.  This is potentially the biggest scandal of the entire Obama presidency, and yet so far the Republicans have not jumped on it.

If you or I even gave five bucks to ISIS, we would be arrested and hauled off to Guantanamo Bay.  And yet Barack Obama is allowing ISIS to funnel massive quantities of oil through our NATO ally Turkey, and he is not doing anything to stop this from happening.  It is a betrayal of the American people that is so vast that it is hard to put into words.

By now, virtually everyone on the entire planet knows exactly what is going on.  For example, Iraq’s former National Security Adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie shared the following on his Facebook page on Saturday


Black Friday Total Sales Crash 10% (Despite Rise In Online Spend) / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 17:00

We can hear the mainstream media now – “Great News Everyone!! The American consumer is back” –online sales on Black Friday rose 10% to $1.7 billion which ComScore says shows “strong spending.” The only problem is – which we suspect will be oddly missing from the mainstream narrative, asShopperTrak reports total sales on Black Friday crashed 10% to $10.4 billion. While blame has been placed on early opening on Thanksgiving, that is false too since spending on that day also plunged 10%. So, the sales news is unequivocally bad – which is hardly surprising given the collapse in consumer confidence.

So to clarify… (via The Guardian)


$GCZ15 – December Gold (Last:1055.90)

Gold selloff provided an opportunity to cover /Rick Ackerman / EDT

Subscribers were advised on Friday to cover a short position that would have produced a gain of as much as $12,000 per contract over the month it was held. The $18 selloff that ended the week fell a tad shy of our longstanding target at 1044.50. However, because I expect a strong bounce from the target or very near it, and because the intraday low coincided with the Hidden Pivot target of a lesser downtrend (see inset), it was time to cover the position rather than try to milk it for a few more drops.

As the new week begins, we’ll look to stake out a long position somewhere near these levels, but I didn’t want to attempt it by trading ahead of the weekend. (Note: The best way to stay apprised in real time is to tune to the chat room or sign up for intraday email alerts on your account page.) Earlier, I had provided explicit instructions for using GLD to leverage a possible bullish reversal. However, this vehicle looks more precarious than the futures, having breached a major Hidden Pivot target on Friday at 101.56. We’ll consider it nonetheless if it flashes opportunity.

14,000 Refugees Due For Deportation From Sweden Have Vanished: “We Simply Do Not Know Where They Are” / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 17:29

As part of the just concluded “cash for refugees” deal between the EU Turkey, the FT adds that not only will migrants whose asylum applications are rejected be sent back to Turkey but that this “crackdown on irregular migration would be complemented by a parallel programme offering a legal route to Europe, resettling up to 500,000 Syrian refugees directly from Turkey, Lebanon or Jordan.”

The FT adds that, as expected, “if such an EU-wide scheme were made mandatory it would be flatly opposed by many eastern European countries. To avoid the proposals being blocked, Brussels and Berlin are exploring a “voluntary” scheme with 10 countries willing to take refugees. It is unclear whether other Schengen members would be asked to contribute to the costs of resettlement.”

But before crossing that particular bridge, which will sow even further anger, mistrust and antagonism spread among the member countries of the European “Union”, a bigger question is just how will Europe track down and sequester those refugees that pose the biggest threat in the eyes of authorities, those who are already slated for deportation.

As the following case study from Sweden proves, having once entered Europe, Europe may have problems trying to track down the hundreds of thousands of refugees having already found their way to the continent.

As Sweden’s Afton Bladet reports, over half of all the illegal migrants slated for deportation in Sweden have mysteriously disappeared.

Today the man who has become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, and major global events spoke with KWN about what will cause the gold price to jump hundreds of dollars in a matter of days.

King World News note:  KWN was taken offline for lengthy periods of time shortly after the Dr. Paul Craig Roberts audio interview was released.  A powerful entity did not want the contents of his interview to be heard across the globe.

Egon von Greyerz:  “On top of the insoluble economic crisis, there are now very dark clouds on the geopolitical front.  Sadly, I see the risk of a major conflict as very high and where that would end is impossible to predict…

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity from Microwave Technology Finally Medically Proven

By Catherine J. Frompovich
Finally, there’s documented medical proof that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a real-time health issue that actually can be verified using standard medical procedures and testing capabilities.
An international group of researchers aced it when they published their findings from the clinical study “Metabolic and Genetic Screening of Electromagnetic Hypersensitive Subjects as a Feasible Tool for Diagnostics and Intervention” in the November 2014 issue of Mediators of Inflammation.

So, the million-dollar-question has to be, “When will utility companies get up to speed on the latest in microwave technology damage to the human body?” Also, “When will public utility commissions nationwide institute proper procedures to protect consumers from such damage?”

Pennsylvanians currently are being bombarded by non-thermal health problems from public utility companies’ electric, natural gas and water Smart Meters, which operate using microwave technology.


Using New “Pre-Crime” Laws France Arrests 24 Climate Activists / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 10:15

As Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas writes, one-hundred and fifty heads of government, a.k.a. the elite, are gathering over the course of the next few weeks for a massive climate summit that’s anticipated to attract and indoctrinate over 40,000 visitors from around the globe. The summit, dubbed COP21, is sponsored by the United Nations (UN) and will reportedly focus on combating climate change. However it’s doubtful that geoengineering, which ironically is mostly to blame for current climate patterns, will even be a topic of interest to scheduled speakers. To boot any chance of that information making it out to the general public is limited as 24 activists have already been placed under house arrest.”

He further observes that “emergency powers” declared in the wake of the recent Paris attacks – in the name of terrorism – and adopted virtually overnight, were extended for a period of up to 90-days by the country’s leadership allowing for such activists to be jailed in advance of the summit or at anytime within period.

France 24 confirms the “pre-crime” arrests, writing that twenty-four environmental activists have been placed under house arrest ahead of the Paris climate summit, using France’s state of emergency laws. Two of them slammed an attack on civil liberties. The order ends on December 12, the day the Paris climate summit draws to a close.

European HIV Infections Hit Record High, CDC Blames “Migrants And Refugees” / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 13:50

The number of newly diagnosed HIV cases in Europe has hit an all-time high of 142,000, according to The World Health Organization. “Despite all the efforts to fight the disease,” WHO officials note that the rise of the epidemic is primarily attributed to Eastern Europe, where new diagnoses have more than doubled. But it is comments from European Centre for Disease Prevention Control acting director Andrea Ammon that raised a number of witch-huntery eye-brows when she explained migrants and refugees were at a high risk of infection after they arrived in Europe, because social exclusion made them more likely to engage in risky behavior.

“Despite all the efforts to fight HIV, this year the European Region has reached over 142,000 new HIV infections, the highest number ever,” says Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe. As The Indepedent reports,

The World Health Organisation said the figure was the largest the continent had suffered since case reports began in the 1980s.

“This is a serious concern”.


Black Friday Was A Bust Despite Rabid Retailer Promotions / Dave Kranzler / 

America’s annual Black Friday shopping extravaganza was short on fireworks this year as U.S. retailers’ discounts on electronics, clothing and other holiday gifts failed to draw big crowds to stores and shopping malls…Suntrust Robinson Humphrey analysts were more blunt, calling Thursday a “bust”. “Members of our team who went to the malls first had no problem finding parking or navigating stores,” he wrote in a note.  LINK

“Black Friday” was actually “Black Friday Week” and “Black Friday Weekend.”  Despite promises from the Fed and the Obama Government that the economy is doing well, the nation’s retailers can smell a brewing holiday season disaster.  This is why they all seemed to “leap frog” each other backwards to start their “Black Friday” sales first.   It was textbook market cannibalization.

December 16th: A Date Which Will Live On In Monetary Infamy / by Tyler Durden on 11/29/2015 – 15:00

Authored by Mark St.Cyr,

Depending on how one looks at it September 17th seems both as far in the rear-view mirror as a distant memory, and yet, almost as if it were just yesterday. I believe part of the reason is the fact no one has been able to stop thinking about it in one form or another. For those of you who don’t await with bated breath for the world’s equivalent of monetary dictates, September 17th was the date The Federal Reserve punted on raising interest rates stating reasons that still have many scratching their heads.

However, as of today, by all indications put forth via a myriad of so-called “in-the-know” types. This time they’re really, really, really, no fingers crossed, and Scouts honor going to “just do it.” Unless you listen to Fed officials themselves. For if you have, “just doing it” may indeed turn out to be: can’t bring themselves to do just about anything except to wait on doing – it. Welcome to monetary policy 21st century style. Where the meaning of “it” can be just as tricky to identify as what “is,” is.

Maybe you think I’m just trying to make a play-on-words type argument. Let me assure you I’m not, for I’m not that good. You can’t make this stuff up. This monetary gibberish writes itself (actually it’s spoken by Fed. officials first) which is why it’s both so laughable, as well as dangerous at the same time.
