This just isn’t fair! As every time the weekend passes, I wake up Monday with a gargantuan amount of “horrible headlines” to process (or, as I have recently deemed them, “PM bullish, everything-else bearish); which I dutifully gather every second of the day, be it […]

It is not looking good for the US housing market.
One week ago, when we reported that “On Manhattan’s “Billionaire’s Row”, A Death Knell Just Tolled For Luxury Real Estate“, we documented the sudden trapdoor that opened beneath the ultra-luxury segment in the Manhattan housing […]

“The chaos that one day will ensue from our 35-year experiment with worldwide fiat money will require a return to money of real value. We will know that day is approaching when oil-producing countries demand gold, or its equivalent, for their oil rather than dollars […]

What a tangled web the global geopolitical situation has become. Geopolitics and finance have always been interrelated but recently much more so. As many readers know, I have speculated we would be hit over the head with a “truth bomb” from the East and most […]

Give me that!!
It belongs to the Chinese now!
As we previously detailed, two topics we’ve deemed critically important to a thorough understanding of both global finance and the shifting geopolitical landscape are the death of the petrodollar and the idea of yuan hegemony.

With all that has been written about the events inside of Syria and Iran, which have accompanied recent Russian aggression, I have read very little about the underlying motivations for what is occurring in this volatile part of the world. This article identifies the four major […]

Two weeks after Beijing shifted to a new currency regime in an effort to bring about a managed yuan devaluation, we explained why it really all comes down to the death of the petrodollar. When China began to burn through its FX reserves in a […]

One of the key things to understand about China’s liquidation of hundreds of billions in US paper is that far from being a country-specific phenomenon, it actually marks the continuation of something that’s been taking place in other emerging markets for some time.
As we […]

Last week, we updated our assessment of capital outflows in China, noting that based on available information, it appears that outflows may have surpassed $300 billion from early July through mid-September. That figure comes from our analysis of July TIC data, Goldman’s assessment of underlying […]

On Friday, on the way to diving into Goldman’s $20 crude call, we recapped our characterization of low crude prices as a battle between the Fed and the Saudis, a battle which is now manifesting itself in budget troubles in Riyadh and a concurrent FX reserve burn. […]

We’ve long framed collapsing crude prices as a battle between the Saudis and the Fed.
When Saudi Arabia killed the petrodollar late last year in a bid to bankrupt the US shale space and secure a bit of leverage over the Russians, the kingdom may […]

Many have mistakenly dismissed silver as just another commodity like oil, for example. If one looks at how silver has traded since 2001, in comparison with oil, one might agree with that mistaken believe. Below is a comparison of silver and oil since 2001 (charts from stockcharts.com):

On Sunday, we saw a Gulf market meltdown with stocks falling 7% in Saudi Arabia and 5% or more in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. The steep declines came on the heels of Friday’s horrific selloff in US markets and presaged the carnage that […]

As the world adjusts to lower oil prices and the attendant end of the petrodollar system that has served to underwrite decades of dollar dominace but which, thanks to geopolitics, lackluster demand, and a QE-assisted global supply glut, is now set to collapse, costing financial markets some […]

Back in November we chronicled the (quiet) death of the Petrodollar, the system that has buttressed USD hegemony for decades by ensuring that oil producers recycled their dollar proceeds into still more USD assets creating a very convenient (if your printing press mints dollars) self-fulfilling prophecy […]

We live in a world where all currencies are “fiat”, none backed by gold, silver, oil or anything else. Yes of course the dollar, otherwise known as the “petrodollar” has functioned and survived (so far) based on oil revenues being recycled back into U.S. Treasury bonds, […]

Back in November, before most grasped just how serious the collapse in crude was (and would become, as well as its massive implications), we wrote “How The Petrodollar Quietly Died, And Nobody Noticed“, because for the first time in almost two decades, energy-exporting countries would pull […]
