Judging By Their Stock Markets, The Economies Of These Two Nations Must Be Doing Great:

As the public is told day after day by mainstream media, if stock prices are up in America, it is an indication that all is well in the economy… consumers can consume, investors can invest, and producers can produce as confident citizens gorge on ever more credit (because everything is awesome). So we wonder what the ‘CNBC’ of these two countries would be saying about their stock markets’ massive outperformance…

Venezuela’s “economy” must be roaring?

venezuela-zimbabwe-stocks

Of course the point is, it matters what the numeraire is and with Bolivars hyperinflating and ZimDollars on the verge of hyperinflating as Mugabe prints money once again, these ‘markets’ are merely reflecting the collapsing worth of local currency. But hey, don’t tell the global investing public, stocks up = good news, no matter what, right?!

The Real Lesson For America As Grubhub Stock Plunges After CEO Tells Trump Supporters To Resign:

The blowback began yesterday as #boycottgrubhub took hold on social media. But it appears Americans – as deplorable as they are – are voting with their wallets and dumping Grubhub stock (now down 10% since the CEO explained in a company-wide email that Trump-supporting staff are not welcome and should resign.) However, there are some deeper lessons from this than the typical intolerance on the left and the “I just don’t get it” perspective.

FYI.

Reader squodgy:

“Middle class America just can’t see the wood for the trees. The last 65 years have been paradisic, but the end is coming and nobody sees it or worse, is even prepared to consider it.

All the pieces are in place, yet I’ve just been in contact with all my lot in the States & they’re either shocked about how the campaign against poor Hillary is going, or upset about the muck raking over Donald’s penchant for young girls. Is he really worse than Bill Clinton?

Nobody can grasp they are both from the Rothschild “end of America” stable.”

Crispin Odey Sees 80% Crash In UK Stocks With Recession, Inflation “Inevitable”:

“The FTSE 100 share index is now up 30% over five years, whilst earnings have fallen by 80%. On an earnings yield of 1.6%, the stock market could fall by 80% and, provided profits did not fall, would be on a 13x P/E multiple. The Bank of England is proud that they have engineered such a pleasant result but there is now increasing evidence that this is unsustainable.”

Jubilee Shockwaves to Continue Throughout this Fall:

When was the biggest market crash of all time (23% in one day)? – in an October, just after a Shemitah (a little less than 3 weeks after) – It was Black Monday in 1987.

Red alert: Prepare for severe stock market crash, warns HSBC:

The technical analysis team at HSBC is warning recent stock market moves look eerily similar to just before 1987’s ‘Black Monday’, which saw the largest one-day market crash in history.

On October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average which comprises the 30 large US publicly traded companies, lost 22.6 percent of its value.

In a note to clients released Wednesday, Murray Gunn, the head of technical analysis for HSBC, said he was on red alert for an imminent sell-off in stocks in the light of the price action over the past few weeks. Continue reading »

Some Of The World’s Best Investors Are Putting Their Money In An Unexpected Place:

A curious group of markets – India, Indonesia, The Philippines and Vietnam – have been identified as the best investing opportunities by a group of leading Asia macro strategists, who think that Asia and the emerging markets will considerably outperform the developed world.

While everyone is focused on the US Presidential election, Real Vision TV recently brought together some Asian market experts, to explain why they have recently turned bullish on the region and why institutional money has been underweight the Asian markets for the past five years. A video compilation of the highlights is shown below:

It features some diverse views around the common theme that there are some good opportunities for investors to get in now ahead of the curve. One common theme in the conversations is that investment flows are set to take off in the region, sparked by positive demographic and infrastructure stories, alongside political reform for growth.

“You Can’t Compare Deutsche Bank To Lehman”

… because Deutsche is much, much worse than Lehman.

So move along, there is nothing to see here.


Germany Goes There: “You Can’t Compare Deutsche Bank To Lehman”:

“When it’s important, you have to lie,” is the now well-known mantra from European leaders when the crisis hit. So when a German politician proclaims “you can’t compare Deutsche Bank with Lehman. The bank is in a position to get out of this situation on its own,” it’s time to panic. Just a week after the 8th anniversary of Lehman’s collapse, the multi-trillion dollar derivative book of Deutsche Bank dwarfs that of Lehman… and the credit markets are starting to wake up again.

lehman-deutsche-bank

Following government exclamations that there will be no bailout for Deutsche Bank, Hans Michelbeck – from Merkel’s Christian Democrat-led bloc and a member of German lower house’s finance committee – confirms it is “unimaginable” that the German government would support Deutsche Bank AG with taxpayers’ money.

$195 Billion Asset Manager: “The Time Has Come To Leave The Dance Floor”:

When the supposed solutions to the Fed’s dilemma are merely new “problems,” you know you are approaching the cycle’s end… long-term investing is predicated on not just knowing where the happening parties are during the reflationary parts of the cycle but more importantly, knowing when the time has come to leave the dance floor. In our view, that time has already come.”

The SEC’s Former Head HFT Expert Joins HFT Titan Citadel:

Last April, we commented on the most blatant (pre) revolving door we had ever seen at the SEC (and there have been many): the departure of the SEC’s head HFT investigator, Gregg Berman, who during his tenure at the agency (whose alleged purpose is to keep the “market” fair, efficient and unmanipulated) did everything in his power to draw attention away from HFTs. He did that, for example, by blaming Waddell and Reed for the May 2010 flash crash. This is what Berman, whose full title was the SEC’s “Associate Director of the Office of Analytics and Research in the Division of Trading and Markets” said in the final version of the agency’s Flash Crash report: Continue reading »

Deutsche Bonds “Dropping Like A Stone” As ‘Most Dangerous Bank In The World’ Plummets:

“They are dropping like a stone,” warns one European credit strategist as signals from the bottom of Deutsche Bank’s capital structure signal a “huge increase in the potential for a coupon skip.” With DB stock tumbling towards record lows again (EUR 11 handle), Bloomberg reports, the bank’s 1.75 billion euros ($2 billion) of 6% additional Tier 1 bonds, the first notes to take losses in a crisis, are crashing… as the world’s most systemically dangerous bank faces existential problems once again.

Prepare for the coming crash. (It could already happen this month.)


bettingnew

Betting on Crazylegs in the Final Race:

Since the early 2000s, I’ve been describing a coming economic depression that will dwarf the one that began in 1929. But this is by no means guesswork or crystal ball gazing. Whenever a country (or countries) creates debt that is beyond the level that they can ever repay, an economic collapse is a near-certainty. Today, many jurisdictions, particularly, the US, EU, UK, Canada, etc. have created debt that is far beyond anything the world has ever seen. This assures us that the corresponding collapse will be of epic proportions.

Of course, I’m frequently asked, “When will it happen?” This is all but impossible to predict, but to be perfectly honest, back around 2006, I was guessing, “probably by 2012.” Although I predicted the minor crash of 2008, I felt that the bigger jolt that’s still coming would have been on our doorstep by now. Again, it’s not all that hard to predict the events if you do your homework, but predicting the timing is another matter.

However, I’ve continued to repeat my general principle that when an economic unraveling of major proportions is coming, significant events increase in frequency and severity. Continue reading »

QE, End of the Private Sector? Japanese Government Now Largest Shareholder of 474 Big Companies:

The two biggest buyers of Japan Inc. are flying blind and don’t care.

The Bank of Japan and the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) have been buying stocks to inflate the market, create some kind of “wealth effect,” and bamboozle regular Japanese into pouring once again into stocks, after many of them lost a big chunk of their savings when the prior bubble imploded without ever recovering.

In 2014, the GPIF – buckling under the pressure from the Abe administration – decided to plow about 25% (“±9%”) of its assets into Japanese stocks. With assets at the time of still about $1.4 trillion, 25% would amount to about $350 billion. So the fund has been buying a lot! And it has been a disaster!

Japanese Government Squanders Pension Funds On Failed Stocks As Losses Reach $130 Billion In Past Year:

Nearly two years ago we wrote about how the largest pension fund in the world had been hijacked by political hacks in what would be a futile effort to prop up stocks in the “first failed Keynesian state, Japan.”  Today’s announcement of $52 billion of losses in 2Q 16 kind of confirms our point.

Volatility is the name of the game. Stocks are acting up, but standing strong. Oil is propelling higher and the US dollar is falling. Turmoil around the world has never been higher and an ominous shadow is lurking in the background, ready to strike.

The situation that we now face is ultimately going to end in a collapse of epic proportion. The financial world is now a ticking bomb that is just waiting to explode – I know this, you know this and even if the masses don’t, they can feel it in their bones. Continue reading »

Jeffrey Snider: All Signs Point To Systemic Reset:

“… what’s happened in stocks is more a myth than actual reality. Investors in stocks are buying at ridiculous valuations based on the premise that the Fed can create a recovery through liquidity. And what 2014 and 2015 show us is that this simply wasn’t true! …the longer the earnings recession lingers, the higher the risk that stock investors will realize that they’ve been following the wrong story all along!”
