An Update on The Kinesis Monetary System


The first half of this free, public podcast includes a thorough update on the rollout and initiation of the Kinesis Monetary System from its CEO, Tom Coughlin. The second half is a discussion with Andrew Maguire regarding the ongoing yuan-gold "peg" and the status of the Commitment of Traders Report. This is extraordinarily helpful and important information so please be sure to carve out some time to give this podcast a thorough listen.

We've been speaking with Tom and Andy on a quarterly basis this year and their most recent update is here:

In this latest discussion, Tom lays out again:

  • What Kinesis is
  • What Kinesis will do
  • The potential for Kinesis to provide an alternative to fiat
  • How everyone can participate

You can learn more about Kinesis by watching this brief video:

Again, everyone can participate. You can open your own affiliate account for free and get Kinesis credit as the system expands. Read more here:

In the second half of the podcast, I asked Andy to specifically address two ongoing anomalies in the global gold market:

  1. The apparent and ongoing "peg" of the dollar price of gold with the dollar exchange rate of Chinese yuan.
  2. The current structure of the Commitment of Traders report. Is it bullish or bearish? I think you'll be surprised by his answer.

Thanks for taking the time to listen.

Directional Changes & the Worst in 40-Years

Posted Sep 21, 2018 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Marty; Your directional changes are amazing. They signal a change but it can be a turn as well as a sudden blast to the upside. You also mention that this is the worst you have ever seen personally in 40 years on the private blog. Could you elaborate?

Thank you for being here. There are a lot of us who are really grateful for what you are contributing. You show know that.


ANSWER: Thank you. We are all in this together. This is not merely trying to pick the next trade. This is about surviving what is really unfolding.

To be a hedge fund manager, you have to look at the entire world compared to a domestic investment manager who operates exclusively in the domestic market and is oblivious to events externally. I get called in all the time into various crisis events around the world. They just need someone who can see the whole rather than has a myopic perspective. There seem to be few of us in such a position. Friends who have worked on desks at the banks internationally have just retired. It is not easy to do this sort of thing. I just have a 40-year track record and in the middle of a crisis, they really do not want someone who may have created the greatest quantitative model in history all in theory but has never actually been in the trenches. You are asking others to stake their entire career on your theory and you are wrong, they lose their job. So it gets hectic to say the least during times like this.

The Directional Change came today and yes it was a blast off. We opened in the Dow ABOVE the previous high which is an extremely bullish technical signal. A Directional Change can be a turn, but it can also be a launch pad. The Panic Cycle can also be a big move in one direction, but they are often outside reversals meaning that they can exceed the previous high and then penetrate the previous low.

Now, as to the comment I wrote today which has sparked a lot of emails. I wrote on the Private Blog ” Anyone who pretends they can forecast this based upon a personal ‘I think’ will be just luck or a fool. I have been an international hedge fund manager and analyst my whole life and this is the worst I have EVER seen in 40 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

There is complete political chaos everywhere you turn. This is not simply supporting or bashing Trump. We are fooling here with the very foundation of CONFIDENCE in the governmental system. Now throw into this cauldron the chaos politically in Europe. Stir in the insanity in Britain, the trade dispute with China, the Russian stupid sanctions, and what we get is complete chaos. Normally, capital flows have been logical. They fled to the USA for World War I and II. They fled the USA during the Civil War. Capital attempts to move away from uncertainty. What I mean as to this is the worst I have personally seen in 40 years is that we have uncertainty absolutely everywhere globally. There is no safe place for capital to hide. This is why we have seen a new record high in the Dow.

Add to this, the chaos our computer is showing in interest rates starting from October onward. On the 10-year yield, we have elected all four Monthly Bullish Reversals and that confirms a long-term change in trend which is really obvious at this point. A Quarterly closing above 3.16% and we are off to the races. We are looking at everything starting to get crazy in sovereign debt issues globally beginning in October. With the Dow Jones Industrials now making a new high for the year, the Fed will be looking more comfortable about raising rates to help the pension fund crisis that is brewing. So pay attention to interest rates in October!!!!!!!!

This is what the Reversal System was designed for. To be objective in the midst of total chaos and uncertainty. November is shaping up as a Panic Cycle in the Euro, not in the share market. In the Pound, we have a Directional Change and a Panic Cycle in October. The political risks around the world are just everywhere. This is also why we scheduled the WEC in November and just after the US elections. Personally, this is a real challenge. I cannot be everywhere around the world at the same time. The best we can do is watch the arrays and the Reversals. Just let the numbers speak for themselves. I warned that we had a Double Bullish Reversal in the Dow at 25800. Once that was elected, it has been off and running to new highs.

15 Hindenburg Omens and everyone is happy...

Key phrase in McHugh's analysis, which shows how weak internally the legacy market is.....

"with New Lows uncharacteristically high at a time when the stock market is hitting a new all-time price high"

"Stocks rose sharply Thursday, September 20th, whipsawing our key indicators back to Buy signals. The Blue Chip and Tech Purchasing Power Indicators, 30 day and 14 day stochastics are now on Buy signals. The Industrials and S&P 500 hit new all-time highs Thursday.

The short-term market forecast is challenging tonight, because we have conflicting evidence. The Elliott Wave mapping has been waiting for new all-time highs in the Industrials and S&P 500 since they are inside large degree wave v-up rallies to complete the Bull market from 2015. So, today's new highs fit the wave mapping which is looking for a top, perhaps an imminent top. The reason we say imminent is because since July 2018, these indices have been forming Rising Bearish Wedge patterns, and they needed another rally leg to finish the patterns. If so, the rally this week is the final subwave e-up for these Bearish Wedges, which are termination top patterns.

If the stock market is topping, then our key indicators will be whipsawed soon back to Sells. Whipsawing of signals is not unusual for triangles and wedges of large degree. The Industrials closed about 200 points above its two standard deviation upper Bollinger Band, which is an outlier overbought measure, supporting that a top is close at hand.

The stock market also generated its 15th Hindenburg Omen observation Thursday for the official H.O. from August 14th, the 13th consecutive day for an observation, in spite of the strong rally, with New Lows uncharacteristically high at a time when the stock market is hitting a new all-time price high. This warns us the stock market is in a fragile condition at this time, susceptible to a strong reversal decline should a black swan event occur.

Our HUI Mining stock key trend-finder indicators remain on a Buy signal Thursday, suggesting a new Bull market may be starting in Metals and Miners."

Another big clue that China in fact intends for the CNY to rise versus the USD, it's just a question of timing.

Just hat tipped Laked for the OC comment...

Sorry to lump you in with Lib...

Edit: Maybe I should have read this line first "There is one party and its agenda is transfer of wealth to the few." IMHO an exaggeration...Of course there are wolves in sheep's clothing on both sides.

As far as the we speak silver is moving and may try to catch up with the PGMs for at least a day....

Disclosure: My biggest holding is silver. And then Gold. But I am getting rather fond of Pt.

The Platinum vs. Palladium price has widened with both going up. Comfortable with Platinum investment following Palladium. In other words I love it. Stay back Pt and just follow Pd for now. Platinum can be used in both gas and diesel applications and their are some new discoveries for fuel cell applications and mixed gold platinum apps...

Love that Craig is starting to open up discussion with some PGM discussion. Fits a metals site and if TPTB are putting the big two (Gold and Silver) in a stranglehold it may be more difficult to do that (stranglehold) with PGMs presently. (a smaller space and heavy South African source)

Just my two cents.

Adam Smith:

1. All money is a matter of belief.
2. Man is an animal that makes bargains: no other animal does this - no dog exchanges bones with another.
3. Labour was the first price, the original purchase - money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased.
4. With the greater part of rich people, the chief enjoyment of riches consists in the parade of riches.

Written by corporations. Roberts and the Court voted on a tax issue and not the merits of the plan. Republicans control Congress and can pass a new plan, an amended plan, or end healthcare all together. Obama sold out right after being inaugurated by filling the Executive Branch with Goldman people just like Clinton, Bush and Trump. Obama's actions supported corporations while his words sounded liberal. If you don't like Obama care, find a Republican that will do something about it because no one else can.

There is one party and its agenda is transfer of wealth to the few. Nothing has changed. Different day, different spin.

Pull my Finger...

...we need more Silver...

I can understand you trying to declare liberal judges sh!t but the Healthcare/Obamacare places it well within the DeepState realm of things. I mean hey, the supposed conservative Chief Justin Roberts voted for the damn thing that has strapped small business in general to be responsible as we were(when I was in business) at a point in time. In many cases you are correct but these days who can we trust until perhaps we get out from under the WAR POWERS BS and the courts get back to constitutional law.
