A Long Way to Fall: Stock Market’s Bottom is Hardly Even Within Sight

When several of the big money-driving voices in financial media and major financial institutions start saying the same thing I am, I start to wonder about myself.

Snow Job: Fed Admits Gov’t Job Estimates too High by Over 1-Million, which Means Serious Peril!

Having written that Powell’s Peril Lies in the Lanquishing Labor Market and that we are Fed up and Under-Fed All at the Same Time because Everyone Sings the “Strong Labor Market” Tune in Unison … and They’re All DEAD Wrong, I finally get some VINDICATION! Major vindication!

I laid out a path of stepping stones for the Fed and stocks all year, and they couldn’t resist it every step of the way!

The languishing labor market has been the Fed’s path to peril, as I wrote yesterday in assessing how the Fed’s latest moves were perfectly predictable. I tried over the past year to lay out each step the Fed and the stock market would take together, and they followed those stepping stones like the Yellow Brick […]

Powell’s Peril Lies in Lanquishing Labor Market

Fed Chair Jerome Powell did the best he could with the limited options the Fed has created for itself, and he said nothing unexpected. The Fed will continue its course at a slower rate of interest rate increases but raise interest to a higher level than it has thought it would have to all year […]

MN Gordon: Are You Ready for the Coming U.S. Government Default?

The vast herd of investors are a deluded crowd.  Following the Federal Reserve’s much anticipated 75 basis point rate hike on Wednesday the major stock market indexes jumped upward. Then they fell. Now they’ve bolted back upward again. Their delirious….

Lance Roberts: Fed Rate Hikes Approaching The “Breaking Point”

Well, it’s now official: Inflation did become the hottest news of 2022 as predicted in 2021: “Inflation Becomes The Leading Global Concern In 2022.” The next step in the forecast was that the Fed greatly over tightens because it doesn’t realize we’re already in a recession, and here is proof step-two is nearly complete:

The Epocalypse Interview with Tom Bodrovics

Here is my recent interview with Tom Bodrovics of Palisades Gold Radio. I think it gives the broadest and easiest-to-understand overview of how the Federal Reserve has delivered us into a catastrophic situation for which the Fed truly has no answers that will do anything, except make everything worse: (In summary: The coronacrisis brought massive […]

It’s Full Market Meltdown Mania and the Fire Truck Is on Fire

The stock market is smart in a dumb way, but it is currently unbelievably dumb in the way that it is smart. To understand that, you have to realize that today’s stock market is not a place for investing in businesses. It used to be that, but the players have all turned it into a […]

Epocalypse Revisted: The Entire Global Economy is Breaking Up on the Rocks

The sails are torn and fluttering fiercely like flags in a windstorm. The ship has stopped slicing through the waves, and its timbers are shuddering on the rocks. You can hear the stony teeth chewing into her planks, but the captain and crew are passing around sherry glasses and raising a toast to the fine […]

The Train Wreck is Already Happening

Today the market paid back some of its delusional holdings. It has a lot more left to pay back. You see, the market believed the Fed all of last year when the Fed said inflation was transitory. Or, at least, market leaders sold the Fed’s narrative, accelerating us into a heck of wreck.

Everyone Sings the “Strong Labor Market” Tune in Unison as the Band Plays on, and They’re All DEAD Wrong!

Everyone in financial media is singing in unison, and the song they are all singing is a recessional for the recession — a hymn or musical piece sung while making an exit. It’s an attempt to make the recession recede from view, to talk it out of existence, to convince everyone that what is, is […]
