A2A with Chris Martenson

59

A tremendous webinar today with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com. Though we had to fight through some audio issues, the information and perspective that Chris shared with everyone is invaluable and demands your attention.

Among the topics addressed today:

  • The Central Bank kabuki theater and the level to which The Bankers are now involved in nearly every market.
  • What Chris learned during his recent stay in Buenos Aires
  • The future of the US dollar, not only in energy transactions but as the world's reserve currency
  • How and why HFT algos now control the "markets"
  • Chris' essential list for preparing for what's ahead
  • And a whole lot more!

Big thanks again to Chris for being so generous with his time today. Our apologies on this end for the audio difficulties which required some editing to the recording.

Thanks for listening,

TF

Chuck Butler....Recessionville..

A Central Bank should never hike rates into a weakening economy, and a Central Bank should never hike rates when they are looking for higher inflation... But, OUR Central Bank has done both of those things, and what are these rate hikes going to cause? The economic train in the U.S. is pulling into Recessionville... And that will bring us another round of Quantitative Easing, and maybe even negative rates, depending on how deep a recession it is, which I figure it will be very deep, because The Fed has circumvented the previous recessions here in the U.S. and never allowed the economy to fully clean out the excesses of the boom, so there's a lot of, let's say, pent up frustration that will be released with this next recession...

And all that will cause the Fed to lose what credibility they have left, and the dollar will be taken to the woodshed for a long period of time! Of course that's all my opinion, and I could be wrong, which I'm sort of hoping I am, but not too much, because I know that my Gold & Silver will shine even brighter if all that comes to fruition...

RRG graphs of gold miners

I started playing around with Relative Rotation graphs:

https://stockcharts.com/docs/doku.php?id=other-tools:rrg-charts

They provide a way to visualize the performance of individual stocks in a group relative to some benchmark. I created a chart of the top 10 holdings of the GDX using the GDX itself as a benchmark:

I tried to make a perma-link of the above chart here:

https://stockcharts.com/freecharts/rrg/?s=ABX,AEM,FNV,GG,GOLD,KGC,NCMGY,NEM,RGLD,WPM&b=GDX&p=w&y=1&t=8&r=93.21,112.64,94.14,106.20&f=tail,d

If the link works, you can click on the "animate" button to see how relative performance has changed over the past year. I'm not sure how useful these charts are for trading, but they are very useful for visualizing relative performance in a basket of stocks.

Right now, KGC, FNV, and RGLD are the best recent performers in the group. GG, ABX, and NCMGY are the worst. The lines show the location of the points over the past 8 weeks. The lines are colored based on which quadrant the latest point lies in. Stocks tend to rotate around in a clockwise manner over time.

I thought it was quite an interesting way to plot the data.

As the noose tightens

"Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of those people. A second person said Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves." https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-lawyers-seek-to-undercut-...

@ Jihk2431

That's one of the benefits of "wisdom" that comes from a lifetime of experiences. Twice in my life I faced death: once possible, once probable. In both instances, my survival depended on (1) Calming down; (2) Assessing the situation; and (3) Determining a plan of action. The hardest, I suspect, is (1). If you can't succeed in that, you'll never survive to get to #'s (2) and (3).

The reason one of my death experiences was "probable", was because I was so caught up in watching it unfold (in sheer terror), I waited far too long to arrive at (2). I was probably about 10 seconds from death when I arrived at (3), and, while my plan of action had serious flaws, I lucked out, and what, in all probability should have sealed my fate, didn't happen. That's not a scenario I would retest!

Here Are America's Most Underfunded Corporate Pensions

As it turns out our nation's various governmental institutions aren't the only ones to have unwittingly created massive ponzi schemes from which there is no escape.
