Hear What Peter Schiff Says Is Coming Next: ‘There’s No Way To Stop This’! Trump is the Fall Guy

  • Hear What Peter Schiff Says Is Coming Next: ‘There’s No Way To Stop This’! Trump is the Fall Guy
    by Mac Slavo, February 8th, 2018, SHTFplan.com
    Peter Schiff, a market analyst who had accurately predicted the 2008 recession and the recent stock market plunge says more is coming.  Wait until you hear what he says is on the horizon for America and the global economy in the Trump era.

    In an interview with Infowars‘ Alex Jones, Schiff details what we can all expect from the economy.  And even though Trump has fought to save the economy, the federal reserve is working against the president. “Unfortunately, he is the fall guy. There’s no way to stop this,” Shiff begins.

    “The problem is so big that the minute the Fed has to try to solve it, it’s gonna unleash a much bigger one [problem],” Shiff says.  Jones begins his intro by not sugar coating the problem the economy is in thanks to government interference. The economy is a giant bubble and it will pop at some point, not just deflate.

Lynette Zang: The Market is in Trouble… Are You?

  • IMO, the most important chart in Lynette’s presentation is bottom of post. What happened on 3 Jan 2018 when Inter-Bank Loans collapsed? This is definitely more serious than a market correction.

    Is this the beginning of the visible fiat market collapse the central bankers have managed to postpone since 2008? Perhaps, time will tell. But frankly, at the least, this should be a wake-up call. People want to ride the markets and believe they can get out just before a crash. Did you know in 2008? Did you know that January 28th the current market high? Did you sell your stocks on January 27th? Only if you were lucky. Personally, I’d rather be two weeks too early, than one second too late. If you have not done so already, take advantage of this gift and re-position your wealth into REAL assets that are the only undervalued monetary instruments on the planet…physical gold and silver.

“Bloodbath” – Dow Crashes Over 1000 Points, Enters Correction

  • “Bloodbath” – Dow Crashes Over 1000 Points, Enters Correction
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Dow crashed over 1000 points today….
    All 2018 gains are gone…

    Time for “Markets In Turmoil” special…
    Markets “turmoiled” again today as Treasury yields spiked on a weak auction and the implications of a budget deal that means more supply is coming. This spooked stocks once again and XIV, the Inverse ETF, tumbled at the open – after ramping stocks delusionally into the open. As stocks got monkey-hammered again, so bonds were bid and ended with a relatively small rise in rates as plunges in Risk-Parity funds likely prompted forced delevering in stocks and bonds. Perhaps most notably, credit spreads started to snap wider and rate volatility spiked as equity market contagion spreads.

Trump’s New Dark Money Man Takes Over

Don’t you see the Illuminist pyramid and Satanic capstone on your dollar bill? The symbol of the Anti-Christ.

  • Trump’s New Dark Money Man Takes Over
    by NOMI PRINS, https://dailyreckoning.com/
    During her last news conference in December, Janet Yellen stood firm on her record stating, “The global economy is doing well. We’re in a synchronized expansion. This is the first time in many years that we’ve seen this.”


    While attempting to lock in her record, Yellen urged, “There’s less to lose sleep about now than has been true for quite some time.” Well, a lot of people lost sleep these past few days. And they might lose more sleep in the days to come. Markets were due for a correction. Whether it turns out to be something worse, time will tell.

    A recent article in MarketWatch said 2018 could “be the year the stock market rally screeches to a halt.” That’s because at some point debt bubbles are going to pop, and after they do, stocks will follow. The Fed has continued to provide what I call dark money to big Wall Street banks while they continue to buy back their shares with it.

    Dark money comes from central banks. Ultimately, central banks “print” money or electronically create funds to purchase bonds or stocks. They also use tools like adjusting interest rate policy and currency agreements with other central banks.

    Dark money then flows out to the biggest Wall Street banks and financial institutions. Policy makers set the tone for central bank fabrication and movements of money through markets, banks and the world.

Who owns the world reserve currency, the dollar, the global monetary hegemony? Look at the Satanic capstone on your dollar bill. The Luciferian New World Order will be complete with the arrival of the Satanic capstone: the Anti-Christ, fake messiah, bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6!

Why Did the US Stock Market Crash on Monday? Blame the Central Banks

  • Why Did the US Stock Market Crash on Monday? Blame the Central Banks
    by Steve Keen, https://www.rt.com/
    Everyone who’s asking “why did the stock market crash Monday?” is asking the wrong question. The real poser is “why did it take so long for this crash to happen?”

    The crash itself was significant—Donald Trump’s favorite index, the Dow Jones Industrial (DJIA) fell 4.6 percent in one day. This is about four times the standard range of the index—and so according to conventional economics, it should almost never happen.

    Of course, mainstream economists are wildly wrong about this, as they have been about almost everything else for some time now. In fact, a four percent fall in the market is unusual, but far from rare: there are well over 100 days in the last century that the Dow Jones tumbled by this much.

    Crashes this big tend to happen when the market is massively overvalued, and on that front this crash is no different. It’s like a long-overdue earthquake. Though everyone from Donald Trump down (or should that be “up”?) had regarded Monday’s level and the previous day’s tranquillity as normal, these were in fact the truly unprecedented events. In particular, the ratio of stock prices to corporate earnings is almost higher than it has ever been.

    More To Come?
    There is only one time that it’s been higher: during the DotCom Bubble, when Robert Shiller’s “cyclically adjusted price to earnings” ratio hit the all-time record of 44 to one. That means that the average price of a share on the S&P500 was 44 times the average earnings per share over the previous 10 years (Shiller uses this long time-lag to minimize the effect of Ponzi Scheme firms like Enron).

Stock Market Plunge is Deep State “Nuclear” Attack on Trump: Michael Savage, Peter Schiff, Alex Jones and the Health Ranger Sound the Alarm for America

http://www.infowars.com/

  • None so blind as those who refuse to see!
  • Stock Market Plunge is Deep State “Nuclear” Attack on Trump: Michael Savage, Peter Schiff, Alex Jones and the Health Ranger Sound the Alarm for America
    by , https://www.naturalnews.com/
    (Natural News) When it comes to big moves in the stock market, there are no coincidences. Following President Trump‘s approval for the release of the damning FISA memo that proves Hillary Clinton / DNC collusion with the Obama regime to illegally spy on Trump campaign officials, the deep state is now “going nuclear” by attempting to decimate the stock market and remove Trump from power.

    Understand that, in order to take out Trump, the deep state is willing to destroy America in the process. Democrats and the deep state, it turns out, would rather see America decimated than witness President Trump achieve economic abundance for this nation. “These people are so evil and so power drunk that they’ll burn the nation to the ground rather than let Donald Trump live another day in office,” warns Michael Savage (see video below).

    Four prominent opinion leaders across independent media are now sounding the exact same alarm on all this. They are Peter Schiff, Michael Savage, Alex Jones and myself (the Health Ranger). Here are the relevant quotes or article links from the last 24 hours:

    Michael Savage: “The Establishment went into overdrive to destroy Trump… so they are taking the market down.”
    Courtesy of The Gateway Pundit:
    Michael Savage: “Trump’s stirring SOTU speech last week was so great that even CBS admitted 75 percent of the people who watched it approved of it and loved it. So what happened right afterwards? The Establishment, meaning the ‘Deep State,’ call it whatever you want, went into overdrive to destroy Trump, or try to destroy him, where he is strongest, because they couldn’t get him where they thought he was weakest. So they are taking the market down. They are trying to hurt you. They are the enemies of the average American. Make no mistake about it, they are going for you! These people are so evil and so power-drunk that they’d burn the nation to the ground rather than let Donald Trump live another day in office.”

Natixis: “The VIX Spike Corresponds To a 15% Market Crash”

  • Natixis: “The VIX Spike Corresponds To a 15% Market Crash”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Still shocked by the VIX surging over 50? Well, here’s some good news: it could be worse, much worse. In fact, as Natixis’ William Imbrogno calculates this morning, the VIX spike – the largest in history, and still rising – should correspond to a 15% market crash.

    Here is the note from the director of equity derivatives flow at Natixis:

    The VIX spike was the largest in history and should correspond to a 15% market move, the drop of 4% on the SPX should correspond to an increase in the VIX of 5 points.

    Showing the asymmetrical impact of the short squeeze on volatility given the dominance of Algo’s, vol control, CTA’s  and short volatility strategies.

    Perhaps this is a strong case to reduce the reliance on systematic automated strategies in favour of active management?

Craig Hemke: Gold & Silver Rebound on Sinking Dollar

  • Craig Hemke: Gold & Silver Rebound on Sinking Dollar
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Financial writer and precious metals expert Craig Hemke contends there is no mystery why the dollar is going down in value. Hemke explains, “You’ve got the Fed wanting a lower dollar.You’ve got the President of the United States wanting a lower dollar and, lo and behold, the dollar is going down.  It was a year ago, about this time, when the predominate story was “king dollar.”  The dollar was going to soar and all this kind of jazz.  Last year (2017), it looked like it was breaking out, and it got to 103 (on the USDX).  Instead, it fell by 10% and, so far this year, it’s already down about 3%, and here we are just in early February.  It’s not straight down.  It’s probably not going to plunge in 2018 as fast as it rose in 2014, but anyone can take a look at a chart and see it’s going down.  This has significant implications for this year and going into next year.  If it was disinflation on the way up, it will be inflation on the way down.”Hemke thinks commodities are undervalued and cheap relative to stocks, which just had the biggest one day sell-off in years. Hemke contends, “$15 trillion worth of QE has been applied, $15 trillion worth of currency created in the last 8 years. . . . So, there are trillions and trillions of dollars that are sloshing around the planet, and when they all head in one direction, you get things like Bitcoin.  If all of this money starts to head into commodities due to a falling dollar and recognition of inflation, commodities are going up, as is crude, as is silver.  I think it would be wise of people to position themselves ahead of it. . . . The commodities sector will rebound on the sinking dollar.”

    Hemke says the dollar is not just facing technical forces of devaluation, but it also faces some political risk. The dollar is basically a confidence game, and if people lose confidence in the U.S., the dollar can take a sharp beating.  Hemke says, “This is something we are going to be talking about all year.  I call it the three major themes for 2018. . . . Political risk. . . . Geopolitical risk . . . and de-dollarization.  You can see how these pieces fit together. . . . This could get more disorderly than it was in 2008. . . . The point of this forecast is not to sit here and say gold is going back to $1,900 (per ounce) by this time next year and then going to $5,000.  What I am trying to say is people need to recognize an opportunity when it presents itself.    We have had to sit and put up with this garbage for the last five years with prices getting continually pounded, rallying and then getting beaten back.  Now, you can see on the chart, and not just gold, it’s silver, it’s crude oil, it’s copper and all these other commodities . . . There is an opportunity here for people who want to take advantage of it.”
