There has been no shortage of sellside reactions to last week’s Fed rate hike, which have run the gamut from congratulatory as per BofA and Credit Suisse, to the outright critical, as we showed last week in a note from Goldman Sachs, RBC and […]

For the second week in a row, Deutsche Bank’s strategist Parag Thatte has a somewhat conflicted message for the bank’s clients: on one hand, he writes that positive economic surprises continue “but are getting less so”, and although the divergence between har data […]

The evidence is overwhelming and indisputable at this point. Donald Trump is a phony, who has given his administration over to Wall Street crooks even more enthusiastically than his predecessors, and his predecessors were very enthusiastic.
I’ve written about this many times, and I warned […]

President Donald Trump will nominate Goldman Sachs banker James Donovan as deputy Treasury secretary, the White House said Tuesday, adding another alumnus of the Wall Street investment bank to his administration.

There is a giant wall of short positions held by the smart-money “commercial” traders in crude oil futures, and it is going to lead oil prices to come crashing down.
Each week, the CFTC reports on the numbers of long and short positions held by futures traders. They […]

Yesterday, the German global bank, Deutsche Bank, fell by 3.82 percent by the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange on news of a capital raising and revamp in strategy. That price action took down every major Wall Street bank […]

Remember pre-election, how the theme was that a Killary presidency meant certain war? And, how a Trump presidency would mean friendship with Russia and bringing many of the troops home?
Well, so much for that! Trump is just as oriented toward war as Hillary. […]

As a part of the increasingly obvious set-up of conservative movements by international banking interests and globalist think-tanks, I have noticed an expanding disinformation campaign which appears to be designed to wash the Federal Reserve of culpability for the crash of 2008 that has […]

To Unleash or Not to Unleash, That is the Question…
LOVINGSTON, VIRGINIA – Corporate earnings have been going down for nearly three years. They are now about 10% below the level set in the late summer of 2014. Why should stocks be so expensive?

Every few years, it seems, one or another mismanaged eurozone country falls into one or another kind of crisis. This leads to speculation about the end of the common currency, which in turn spooks the global financial markets. Then the ECB conjures another trillion euros out […]

On Monday I had the opportunity to attend a conference at Goldman Sachs’ Dallas office. Among the dozens of money managers and investors who attended, a combined $1 trillion in assets was represented. The speakers were numerous, from famed economist Jan Hatzius, Goldman’s head of global […]

For some still unknown reason, Goldman Sachs, the bank that single-handedly accounts for the bulk of Trump’s closest economic and financial advisors, and whose former COO has been reportedly tasked with hatching Trump’s “phenomenal” tax plan, has been on a tear in the […]

Less than one year ago, we reported that Marc Mezvinsky, the husband of Chelsea Clinton and the son in law of Hillary and Bill Clinton, had shut down its Greek Fund after suffering 90% losses. To wit:
Despite having Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein […]

Last week, former Goldman Sachs banker and current Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said “in many respects, we’re coming to the last seconds of central bankers’ 15 minutes of fame…which is a good thing.” Which I couldn’t agree with more, despite said “15 minutes” lasting […]

The Fed seemed to back away from its three-hikes-plan in today’s FOMC statement, as FF futures and the USD signalled a more dovish stance,
But Wall Street analysts remain confused…
The FOMC kept policy rates unchanged today and made few revisions […]

My view of Trump is conditional and awaits evidence. I am encouraged by the One Percent’s opposition to Trump, or we have just experienced the greatest ruse in history. Indeed, a pointless ruse, as the Establishment had its candidate in Hillary.
Trump’s executive orders don’t […]

In the midst of being skewered across media outlets yesterday for his chaotic rollout of an Executive Order that appeared to target Muslims, including those legally living in the U.S. as businessmen, doctors, university faculty and students — who were initially denied […]

Central Bank intervention in the markets has completely destroyed the stock market’s value as a reflector of economic activity and business profitability. Rather, like the mainstream media, the stock market has become little more than propaganda tool used in an effort to manage public perception.
I was fooling around with […]

Shortly after the melt-up in US bank stocks began following Trump’s election victory, we noted heavy insider-selling (and options expiration) among Goldman Sachs executives. Well the selling never stopped, as WSJ reports executives at the biggest Wall Street banks have sold nearly $100 […]

BALTIMORE – Two things. One we understand. The other we don’t. First, you gotta hand it to Wall Street. The financial elite were 1,000% behind Hillary. Then, when Donald Trump won the White House, within minutes, they were in his cabinet.
During the campaign, not […]

You need Insiders who are loyal to an Outsider and an Outsider agenda to accomplish any real reforms. Readers ask a reasonable question: if Trump is a political Outsider, then why has he stuffed his staff with Insiders–Goldman Sachs alumni, generals, etc.? The question […]

Wall Street On Parade (January 9) details the boggling Goldman Sachs presence on Trump’s team. My comments will follow the list of names.
“Trump nominated Steven Mnuchin, a 17-year veteran of Goldman Sachs to be his Treasury Secretary.”
“Stephen Bannon, another former Goldman Sachs banker, was […]
