Thursday Conversation - Danielle DiMartino Booth

You should be sure to listen to this free public podcast.


Danielle DiMartino Booth is a former advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. This experience gives her a unique perspective on the moves of the global central banks in 2019. Thus, you should be certain to carve out some time for this podcast.

Over the course of this call, I asked Danielle to address three key themes:

  1. Why, in late 2018, did The Fed suddenly reverse their policy of Fed Funds rate hikes and Quantitative Tightening?
  2. What, if anything, is the recent action in the bond market telling us about the current situation and the future of interest rate policy?
  3. Is the next move by the FOMC a rate cut or a renewal of rate hikes?

It was a great pleasure to speak with Danielle today and I'm grateful that she could spare the time. Please be sure to check out her website and subscription services here: https://quillintelligence.com

Total surprise to me...

I've been paying attention to her comments for quite sometime....If there is a female economist I could walk my wee doggies with, she would be the one....She is a smart, smart cookie.

Over the clowns at the Fed I will take anything

Gold Silver Pt or Pd they all seem fantastic as compared to the Fed’s lack of policy and direction. Not a smart move Powell your policy is just string it along a little further and hope to God there is someone else in charge when this blows. Read Irwin Schiff’s book the Federal Mafia.

If Danielle DiMartino looked at my miners 10 years trading...

Wonder, what would she think about me?

She'd likely say: Your doggies are way too smart for you.

HUI update

Not good.

Now down 10% in a month and has fallen out of the channel. The only hope is that, come Monday, it will immediately reverse and move back into the channel as it did in November.

or at least at the 200dma which is just 3 points lower

Very suspicious trading of USD today...

Somebody was driven to see it above 97 for the holiday weekend?


Apr 18, 2019 - 5:34pm

HUI ...

Many miners are trading below their down trending 200 day ...

Great day for Pt and Pd!

Just trying to keep it positive.

Pt broke above 900 again to $907.40 and Pd broke above 1,400 to $1,409.35.

Platinum up 1.81% & Palladium up 2.23% for day!

Pd up 5.2% for 1 week!

The thing about Danielle

Not long ago on I believe it was a Greg Hunter interview Danielle made a point it was a mistake people might question the Fed, that it was,"We the Peoples Fed". Technically I suppose she is correct because the Fed was created by The Federal Reserve Act(which has questionable credibility) and I'm sure there is plenty of BS documentary evidence but they sure as f#ck aren't for the benefit of We the People.
