The QE Infinite parade officially ended yesterday when Bernanke hinted at tapering QE later this year or in mid-2014.
I first warned Private Wealth Advisory subscribers about this in mid-May writing,
If Bernanke is going to step down (as hinted by his decision to skip out on the Jackson Hole meeting) he’s not going to want to leave with the Fed going at QE 3 and QE 4 full throttle.
Instead his best bet would be to take his foot off the gas a little bit, giving his replacement a little room to maneuver if things get ugly.

This is precisely what Bernanke is trying to do. However, there is another far larger issue at work here.
The primary driver of stocks for the last four years has been the hope of more Fed stimulus. This hope has put a floor under ALL asset prices as market participants KNEW the Fed was involved in the markets. As a result EVERYTHING (stocks, bond commodities, even currencies) has been artificially propped.
By calling for the end to QE 3 and QE 4, the Fed has begun to remove these market props. Which means that the markets are now going to start adjusting to where assets prices REALLY SHOULD BE.
Take a look at the spike in the 10-year Treasury yield:
This is just the start. I warned Private Wealth Advisory subscribers in our most recent issue that higher rates were coming noting a collapse in bonds in Europe and the emerging market space.
This could easily become truly catastrophic. The world is in a massive debt bubble and the Central banks are now officially losing control. The stage is now set for a collapse that could make 2008 look like a joke.
If you are not preparing in advance for this, the time to get started is NOW.
I’ve been warning subscribers of my Private Wealth Advisory that we were heading for a dark period in the markets. I’ve outlined precisely how this will play out as well as which investments will profit from another bout of Deflation.
As I write this, all of them are SOARING. In fact we just locked in four straight gains of 8%, 12%, 21% and 28% in the last month ALONE.
