The Last Time Stocks Were This Expensive Was… March 2000

Over 99% of investors continue to live in delusion. That delusion is that stocks are NOT in a bubble. They are. In fact, it’s arguably about to become the biggest stock bubble in history. According to John Hussman, stocks have been more expensive based on median valuations only ONCE before in history. That was the

Central Bankers Just Lit the Fuse on a $217 TRILLION Debt Bomb

As we noted yesterday, the world’s Central Banks have begun sending signals that the price of money in the financial system (bond yields) is going to be rising. Why is this a big deal? Because globally the world has packed on $68 TRILLION in debt since 2007. And ALL of this was issued based on

Bombshell: The US Spent $20 MILLION Per Job Created From ’08 Onward

Since 2008 the financial media has been proclaiming that the US was in a “recovery.” This argument was used to justify the insane monetary policy of the Federal Reserve, which maintained ZIRP for seven years and spent over $3 trillion in QE. Well, it turns out there was no recovery to speak of when it

Crash Warning: We Could Drop 8% in a Matter of Days

CNBC and the financial media are foaming at the mouth bullish. But the truth is that the market is on VERY thin ice. The S&P 500 is up only 0.4% since the end of February. That’s correct, we’ve barely broken to a new high at a time when EVERYONE is ragingly bullish. Even more astounding…

The Corporate Debt Bomb is Ticking (Think 2000 All Over Again)

Corporate profits are rolling over again. Two years ago, corporations posted their first year of negative profit growth since the Great Crisis. We had a bounce from those depressed levels, which suckered a lot of investors into believing that fundamentals were improving. They were wrong. That bounce has now ended. Year over year profits are

Subprime 2.0: Lending a $1 Trillion to People With No Proof of Job or Income

SubPrime 2.0 is proving far worse than even we suspected. If you’ve not been following this story, our view is that the auto-loan industry is Subprime 2.0: the riskiest, worst area in a massive debt bubble, much as subprime mortgage lending was the riskiest worst part of the housing bubble from 2003 to 2008. In

THREE Charts That Tell Us the Next Financial Crisis is Closer Than Most Think

The election night bull market trendline is about to break. The only reason stocks have held up is hype and hope for Trump’s economic agenda. With the entire MSM, establishment shills, and deep state operatives trying to derail this, the market is about to lose this prop. More worrisome for the financial system: the long-term

Warning: a Stock Market “Event” Is About to Hit

Stocks are on the ledge of a cliff. The entire market rally since election night has been based on the assumption that the Trump administration would be able to QUICKLY implement massive tax and healthcare reforms. We now know that none of those items will happen soon… if at all. And the market is just

Did Stocks Just Make “the Kiss of Death”?

The markets are talking but few are listening. Historically, the start of the second quarter is an EXTREMELY bullish day for stocks. But despite this seasonality the market struggled yesterday. It was only through a dramatic intervention from Central banks that we closed marginally down. Indeed, the S&P 500 has broken out of a bearish

The Next Market Move is Going to Annihilate Consensus Thinkers… Buckle Up.

Here’s a chart your broker won’t show you. The entire move in the S&P 500 since the November 8 election has been driven by the move in the $USD/Yen pair. As you can see, these two items (USD/YEN and S&P 500) are essentially the same trade. ————————————————————————— The Single Best Options Trading Service on the

A Fortune 500 CEO Just Issued a Major Warning… But Few Are Listening…

The market is about to wake up to something bad. That something is the fact that the $USD’s strength is going to crush corporate profits in 1Q17. You see, companies begin to issue guidance for their results during the last week of the quarter. So the warnings are about to start hitting. Indeed, we’re already

Is the Derivatives Markets About to Implode the System Again?

The 2008 Crash was caused by the unregulated derivatives markets. And if you think that problem has been fixed, you’re mistaken. Consider Deutsche Bank (DB). DB sits atop the largest derivatives book in the world. This one bank has over $75 trillion in derivatives on its balance sheet. This is over 20 times German GDP

Retail Collapse Signals the “Recovery” is Officially Dead

The “recovery” is over, at least as far as retail is concerned. The retail ETF (XRT) has taken out its bull market trendline dating back to the 2009 bottom. Even more than this, XRT has not only taken out its trendline, but it has since failed to reclaim former support. Instead we’ve had a dead

Is This Whole Stock Market Bounce Just One Big Trap?

I don’t trust this rally. Few analysts realize that the sharpest, most aggressive rallies occur during bear markets. The reason for this is that during bear markets, investors tend to go short (borrow shares to bet on a collapse). So when the market rallies even a little bit, it often will go absolutely vertical as

Why This Crisis Will Be Worse Than 2008

For six years, the world has operated under a complete delusion that Central Banks somehow fixed the 2008 Crisis. All of the arguments claiming this defied common sense. A 5th grader would tell you that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing more debt. Similarly, anyone with a functioning brain could tell you that

Central Banks Desperately Try to “Save” Stocks

The Central Banks are getting desperate. The interventions are so obvious now you’d have to be on drugs not so notice them. On Monday afternoon, at 3PM “someone” stepped in to prop up stocks. They did it again yesterday at 10AM. These were obvious interventions. How do we know this was intervention and not real

Market Update: Is the Bottom In?

Stocks are rallying this morning. They are not rallying because of a change in fundamentals. They are not rallying because of a significant debt restructuring. They are not rallying because of great quarterly results from key economic bell-weathers. They are rallying because of hope for more Central Bank stimulus. This is the game traders have

The Next Crisis Has Begun

Last year we predicted that the world had reached peak centralization and that going forward things would begin to fracture. What is centralization? Centralization is the process by which the world grows increasingly centralized, relying on Centralized organizations (Central Banks, sovereign governments, etc.) to determine the direction of capital and focus. From an investment perspective,

A Central Banking Insider Just Admitted QE CANNOT Generate Growth…

Last week a Central Banker made the most incredible admission in the history of banking. It came from the Bank of Japan. The Bank of Japan has been the leader in global Keynesian insanity. The US Federal Reserve launched its first QE program in 2008. The European Central Bank launched its first QE program in

The Fed Continues Giving Money to Wall Street Even Without QE

Stocks will likely rally this week for the simple reason that it is options expiration week.   The Fed almost always gives Wall Street extra money to play around with during options expiration.   On average the Fed expands its balance sheet by $9.1 billion during options expiration weeks (expansions means money flows into Wall
