China_Taking_Over_American_land

stock market ride

Retail investors have been dog-piling into the stock market chasing performance and margin debt is at a high. Market historians like David Stockman recognize these facts as classic signals of a top in the stock market. – E.D.

trust the lies not the truth propaganda

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”Adolf Hitler

Bullion was resilient in the face of constant capping efforts last month. The fundamentals for strong gold are over the top and include massive under-reported Chinese physical demand purposefully obfuscated by mainstream media and Wall Street (but documented by myself and other analysts given Swiss refiner flows).  Gold blasted through $1,250 last week;  something had to be done.  This is how the picture looks:

Former Reagan Administration White House Budget Director David Stockman says financial pain is a mathematical certainty. Stockman explains, “I think we are likely to have more of a fiscal bloodbath rather than fiscal stimulus.  Unfortunately for Donald Trump, not only did the public vote the establishment out, they left on his doorstep the inheritance of 30 years of debt build-up and a fiscal policy that’s been really reckless in the extreme.  People would like to think he’s the second coming of Ronald Reagan and we are going to have morning in America.  Unfortunately, I don’t think it looks that promising because Trump is inheriting a mess that pales into insignificance what we had to deal with in January of 1981 when I joined the Reagan White House as Budget Director.”  Stock market faces 20% correction, if not much worse.
