The BAD stage of inflation has officially hit.
As I have noted previous, inflation enters the financial system in stages. The first stage involves a jump in prices paid by producers. This means that those firms responsible for manufacturing goods and services, suddenly see a sharp spike in the cost of basic materials they use to build/ manufacture.
That process began in early 2016 and accelerated throughout 201 into this year.
A Select Group of Traders Are Using This System Make LITERAL Fortunes
Our options trading system struck again last week, locking in a 20% gain in seven days’ time.
This brings our total portfolio return for 2018 to 30%.
Yes, 30%. I’m not cherry-picking or leaving out losers. If you followed these trades and our trading rules, your entire trading portfolio would be up 30% since the start of the year.
Best of all, this system couldn’t be easier: we only trade one trade, once per week… and we’re CRUSHING the market.

The next round of inflation… the BAD one… occurs when these prices remain elevated long enough that firms are forced to raise the prices of their finished goods/ services in order to maintain profits.
The BIG tell on this is when you start seeing wages jump. This means that the cost of everyday items is rising fast enough that employees start demanding raises in order to afford their quality of life.
We have officially hit that point with Year over Year wages jumping 2.9% in the first quarter. This is the largest jump since Q32008, when the US was completing a MASSIVE credit cycle and about to plunge into the worst recession in 80 years.
Put simply, inflation has officially seeped into the economy in a MAJOR way. We are now at the point at which wages are rising… and the Fed is hopelessly behind the curve.
Small wonder the bond market is blowing up. Bond yields rise along with inflation. Does this chart look inflation is “contained” to you?
On that note, we are putting together an Executive Summary outlining all of these issues as well as what’s coming down the pike when the Everything Bubble bursts.
