The Big Turning Point Has Finally Hit

The following is an excerpt from a recent issue of Private Wealth Advisory. In it I reveal that Germany has in fact already implemented a working group to assess the cost of Greece leaving the EU.

Spain Now Faces a Systemic, Societal, and Sovereign Collapse

Spain’s financial system is at truly apocalyptic levels. If you’ve been reading me for some time, you know that Spain has already experienced a bank run equal to 18% of total deposits this year alone (another story the mainstream media is avoiding). However, what you likely don’t know is that an on annualized basis, Spain

The EU Just Lost Another Prop

Meanwhile, as Greece continues to distract the markets, France, the other primary prop for the EU besides Germany, is now experiencing an economic contraction on par with that of 2008-2009. Indeed, France’s September’s auto sales numbers were worse than those of September 2008 (the month Lehman collapsed). The country’s PMI reading is back to April

Enjoy the Holidays, Because Next Year Will Be Horrific

This is going to be a very special holiday season. The reason? It’s the last hurrah before things get very very ugly. Just off the cuff, you need to know that: 1)   China, the EU, and the US (comprising over 50% of Global GDP) are in recession already. The EU has already announced this. Look

Is This the Last Push Before the Big Collapse?

With most of Wall Street on vacation, those few traders manning their desks are taking advantage of the low volume to push the market sharply higher. This, combined with a large move up by the Euro has pulled the entire risk trade up forcing the US Dollar lower. This move was to be expected on

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope all of you are enjoying a day of family and friends with good food, even if you don’t necessarily celebrate this holiday! Thank you for reading!

How and Why a Spanish Default Would Trigger an Epic Financial Meltdown

Over the last week I’ve introduced the concept of collateral: the little known basis for the entire financial system. We’ve also addressed why any EU sovereign default would bring about an epic meltdown as EU bonds, particularly those of Spain and Italy are the collateral underlying hundreds of trillions of Euros worth of trades for

The Powers That Be Don’t Want Sovereign Bonds… They Want Gold

The following is an excerpt from a recent issue of Private Wealth Advisory.

What Really Happened When Lehman Failed… And Why Spain Will Be Much Worse

Countless pages have been written about why Lehman caused the system to almost implode. However, the reality is that Lehman nearly took down the entire financial system for two reasons: 1)   Lehman’s $155 billion worth of bonds were used as collateral in hundreds of billions of Dollars’ worth of trades. 2)   Lehman’s 8,000 clients who

THE Biggest Story in Finance That No One Is Talking About

Modern financial theory dictates that sovereign bonds are the most “risk free” assets in the financial system (equity, municipal bond, corporate bonds, and the like are all below sovereign bonds in terms of risk profile). The reason for this is because it is far more likely for a company to go belly up than a

The Market Just Realized Two BIG Problems

The US Presidential election ended November 6, 2012. Since that time, the market has fallen 3%. There are a multitude of reasons for this, but the primary one is the fact that the markets is beginning to realize two key items: 1)   Everything that was a problem in the run up to the US election

Did the Bank of England Just Kill the QE Trade?

In case you missed it, something of major import occurred today. That something is the Bank of England announcing that it is suspending its QE efforts because of questions relating to its “potency.” This is a heck of a statement from a Central Bank. And it’s coming from the one that has even outdone Bernanke’s

The Three Items Every Investor Needs to Be Aware of Going Forward

The Obama Administration has won its second term. And now that the election is over we can come to grips with the fact that nothing has been fixed and that the math is impossible both in Europe and here. First and foremost, Greece is out of money… again. The country is currently embroiled in a

On Romney, Bernanke, and Rajoy

Mitt Romney has stated repeatedly that he would fire Bernanke if elected. If this does indeed happen, then the inflation trade and QE will be finished. The market is already sensing this. Gold topped out right around the first debate when Romney began to surge in the polls: Right around that time, the US Dollar

What a Romney Presidency Would Mean for the Economy and the Markets

Yesterday we assessed the impact a second Obama term would have on the US economy and markets. Now let’s assess what impact a Romney Presidency would have on the US economy and financial markets. For starters, Romney has already stated that he would fire Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke if he wins office. While this doesn’t

Where the Markets and Economy Will Head if Obama Has a Second Term

The Obama Administration thus far has proven itself in favor of increased Government control and Central Planning. That is, the general trend throughout the last four years has been towards greater nationalization of industries (first finance, then automakers and now healthcare and insurance), as well as greater reliance on our Central Bank to maintain our

Spain Offers Yet Another Impossible Solution to Its Problems

Spain continues to heap one impossible idea on top of another. The latest “plan” consists of Spain creating a bad bank called SAREB that will buy up bad assets in Spain in an effort to clean up the country’s finances. SAREB was part of the €100 billion Spanish bailout plan which was set forth in
