The Single Most Dangerous Chart in the World Spells Doom For Stocks

The media is focused on the Brexit. It is missing out on the biggest story in the financial world. That story is the US Dollar. The Dollar’s rapid rise in mid-2014 is what kicked off ALL of the global turmoil we’ve experienced. The US Dollar’s rally demolished oil, commodities, emerging

Forget the BREXIT… This is a MUCH Bigger Issue

Stocks exploded higher last week on hopes that the tragedy in Britain would not result in a Brexit. The ramp job continued into Monday morning… but there it ended. Stocks erupted higher Monday morning but then gradually gave back most of their gains. The fact of the matter is Brexit

Market Update: Two Developments to Note

The market bounced hard last week when a British MP was killed. The consensus view is that this tragedy will somehow turn Brits against a Brexit. Britain is voting whether or not to leave the EU this coming Thursday. From a technical perspective, the S&P 500 tried several times to

The Last Time We Had This Setup, Investors Saw Triple Digit Gains

The stock market is in a massive bubble. This is not up for debate. The median Price to Sales ratio on S&P 500 companies is over two. That doesn’t sound like a lot until you consider that during the Tech Bubble it didn’t clear 1.6 and during the Housing Bubble

The Fed Is Losing Control of the System

The Fed is losing control of the markets. Yesterday the Fed failed to raise rates… again. It also lowered its rate hike forecast to just one rate hike this year (down from two) and possibly three rate hikes next year (down from four). Despite these dovish developments, stocks cratered. We


During the Next Crisis, Entire Countries Will Go Bust

For seven 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

The 2008-Trade Setup is Back… Are You Ready?

Remember late 2007/ early 2008? The US economy was entering a recession; the worst recession in decades. But 99% of economists didn’t see it. Night after night the media proclaimed that the economy was rock solid. They missed the warning signs as experts emerged to proclaim the S&P 500 would

This Might Be the Best Trade Setup In 8 Years (the 2008 Trade is Back)

Is the Fed Buying Stocks Outright to Prop Up the Markets?

“Someone” is getting desperate. Throughout the last week, anytime stocks have begun to correct or drop, “someone” has bought S&P 500 futures to prop the market up. Anyone who’s been involved with the markets for a while knows the difference between real buyers and manipulation. This is manipulation plain and

Three Signals of Where There’s Money to be Made in the Market

We are now in the worst seasonal period for stocks. The old adage “sell in May and go away” does have some merit. According to the Ned Davis (NDR) database, had you invested $10,000 in the S&P 500 every May 1st starting in 1950 and sold October 31 of the

Two Charts That Prove Central Banks Are Losing Control

The $6 TRILLION Corporate Debt Implosion Begins in T-Minus 3…2…

The corporate bond market is a $6 trillion time bomb waiting to go off. It took the US half a century to grow its corporate bond market to $3 trillion. Thanks to the Fed implementing ZIRP and holding rates there for seven years, we’ve doubled the corporate bond market, adding
