Brexit-Psyop-Greenspan-Falsely-Blames-the-Brits-for-the-Crash-and-Chaos-to-Follow

The Brexit Psyop: Greenspan Falsely Blames the Brits for the Crash and Chaos to Follow:

This Jubilee Year is advancing just as I have predicted, with all the major elements of a worldwide catastrophe now in place.

On Monday, the markets continued to collapse, with every major European stock market down 2-3% and the Dow currently down 300 points following Black Friday which, we now know, was the worst sell-off in worldwide stock markets in history, losing a combined $2 trillion.

The previous largest sell-off in history occurred 7 years, 7 months, 7 weeks and 7 days prior, on the Shemitah end day of September 29, 2008, when $1.9 trillion was erased in one day. Continue reading »

H/t reader squodgy:

“The tide of change has just turned inexorably.
We have started a journey of unknown adventure and undoubted discomfort and unrest.”

And “it” has all been planned a long time ago and foreseen by many seers and by “it” I mean …

Financial/economic collapse, hyperinflation, civil war, revolution, followed by WW3.


The-Magic-Number-7-Brexit-Collapse-Falls-Exactly-on-Shemitah-Date

The Magic Number 7: Brexit Collapse Falls Exactly On Shemitah Date:

In 2014, Christine Lagarde gave a speech on “the magic number 7.”  It, along with work by Jonathan Cahn, led us to the Shemitah seven-year cycle and the Jubilee year, which the globalist elites are well aware of.

What we’ve discovered since is that there is even more to the “magic number 7” than just years… it appears to correlate right down to months, weeks and days. Continue reading »

Black Friday: Shocking Brexit Vote Result Causes The 9th Largest Stock Market Crash In U.S. History:

Has the next Lehman Brothers moment arrived?  Late Thursday night we learned that the British people had voted to leave the European Union, and this could be the “trigger event” that unleashes great financial panic all over the planet.  Of course stocks have already been crashing all over the globe over the past year, but up until now we had not seen the kind of stark fear that the crash of 2008 created following the collapse of Lehman Brothers.  The British people are certainly to be congratulated for choosing to leave the tyrannical EU, and if I could have voted I would have voted to “leave” as well.  But just as I warned 10 days ago, choosing to leave will “throw the entire continent into a state of economic and financial chaos”.  And “Black Friday” was just the beginning – the pain from this event is going to continue to be felt for months to come.

The shocking outcome of the Brexit vote caught financial markets completely off guard, and the carnage that we witnessed on Friday was absolutely staggering… Continue reading »

JPM’s Quant Guru Unveils The $1 Trillion Catalyst That Will Unleash The Next Market In Turmoil:

About ~$1,000Bn of S&P 500 options expire this week. The gamma imbalance turned towards puts yesterday ($9bn per 1% currently), and this will likely push realized volatility higher near term. Post expiry, clients are likely to roll put strikes higher, which will also be supportive of higher volatility. Yesterday’s large move on the VIX indicates short gamma exposure of dealers on VIX products as well.” – Marko Kolanovic

Microsoft Buys LinkedIn For $196/Share In $26.2 Billion Deal:

Merger monday is back with a bang, when moments ago Microsoft announced that it would buy LinkedIn for $196/share, a massive 50% premium to the Friday closing price of $131. The total deal size is $26.2 billion and according to the press release, MSFT will finance the transaction primarily through the issuance of new debt. Indicatively, almost exactly one year ago, LNKD was trading at $300.

Microsoft, which will pay a $725 million termination fee if the deal does not go through, warns that the deal will only become accretive in 2019. This means many synergies are coming for the tech company.

Microsoft also reiterated its intention to complete its existing $40 billion share repurchase authorization by Dec. 31, 2016. Continue reading »

Despite “The Biggest F##king Bailout Ever” This Analyst Says S&P Will Drop 80%:

“I can’t tell you how long it’s going to take but I’m anticipating an 80% drop or 70% drop, something in that neighborhood. Tobin’s Q got down to 0.54 in 2009…The reason it didn’t go lower is because we had the biggest fucking bailout ever orchestrated in the history of the banking system…”

SUPER SHEMITAH: Elite’s Jubilee Year Plan To Crash World Economy By October 2016 (Video)


$68 TRILLION “BIBLICAL CRASH” Dead Ahead? Jim Rogers Issues a DIRE WARNING:

“A $68 trillion ‘Biblical’ collapse is poised to wipe out millions of Americans…”

Submitted by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante

Last year, we were the first financial site to explain how the Shemitah seven-year cycle would have an important and disastrous effect on the markets. The Shemitah ended in the third quarter of last year and just as we predicted, it was the worst quarter in worldwide stock markets since the last Shemitah in 2008.

Since then we have been the leader in explaining further Shemitah trends embedded in the once-every-49-year, Jubilee Year.  The Jubilee Year ends on October 2nd of this year, and we expect even worse events to occur as October approaches.

Now, famous investor, Jim Rogers, has just released a new warning saying the same. He is even using biblical references to warn of a financial tsunami that could take place either this year or next.  He has just said, “A $68 trillion ‘Biblical’ collapse is poised to wipe out millions of Americans.” Continue reading »

“Markets Have No Purpose Any More” Mark Spitznagel Warns “Biggest Collapse In History” Is Inevitable:

After making over $1 billion in one day last August, and warning that “the markets are overvalued to the tune of 50%,” Mark Spitznagel knows a thing or two about managing tail risk.

Mark Spitznagel Warns Biggest Collapse In History Is Inevitable

The outspoken practitioner of Austrian economic philosophy tells The FT, “Markets don’t have a purpose any more – they just reflect whatever central planners want them to,” confirming his fund-management partner, Nassim Taleb’s perspective that “being protected from fragility in the financial system is a necessity rather than an option.”

“This is the greatest monetary experiment in history. Why wouldn’t it lead to the biggest collapse? My strategy doesn’t require that I’m right about the likelihood of that scenario. Logic dictates to me that it’s inevitable.” Continue reading »

Dis-May In Europe: STOXX 600 Trades Like 2001 & 2008:

The STOXX Europe 600 is trending below declining and bearishly positioned 26 and 40-week moving averages, and as BofAML’s Stephen Suttmeier warns, ECB quantitative easing has not reversed this bearish trend.

The 2016 set-up is similar to early 2001 and early 2008 with important resistance at 350 and important support at 300. Both 2001 and 2008 saw rebounds into bearishly positioned and falling 26/40-week MAs that formed important lower tops in May.

With A Historic -150% Net Short Position, Carl Icahn Is Betting On An Imminent Market Collapse:

Over the past year, based on his increasingly more dour media appearances, billionaire Carl Icahn had been getting progressively more bearish. At first, he was mostly pessimistic about junk bonds, saying last May that “what’s even more dangerous than the actual stock market is the high yield market.” As the year progressed his pessimism become more acute and in December he said that the “meltdown in high yield is just beginning.” It culminated in February when he said on CNBC that a “day of reckoning is coming.”

Some skeptics thought that Icahn was simply trying to scare investors into selling so he could load up on risk assets at cheaper prices, however that line of thought was quickly squashed two weeks ago when Icahn announced to the shock of ever Apple fanboy that several years after his “no brainer” investment in AAPL, Icahn had officially liquidated his entire stake.

As it turns out, Icahn’s AAPL liquidation was just the appetizer of how truly bearish the legendary investor has become. Continue reading »

Eric Hunsader: The Financial System is ‘Absolutely, Positively Rigged’:

Eric Hunsader, founder of Nanex, has been at the vanguard of warning about the dangers and the rampant fraud that the rise of high-frequency trading (HFT) algorithims have let loose in today’s financial markets.

While he usually feels like a lone voice in a world happy to deceive itself, he was shocked to receive a $750,000 whistleblower award from the SEC for his efforts. He’s been sadly less shocked to see that since the award was publicly announced, the abuses he reported have only become more extreme and frequent. Continue reading »

OK, I Get it, this Junk-Bond Miracle-Rally Is Doomed:

And since stocks follow junk bonds….

Junk bonds started to decline in June 2014, and earlier this year threatened to implode. Contagion was spreading from the collapsing energy sector to the brick-and-mortar retail sector, telecom (Sprint), the media (iHeartMedia), and other sectors. It was really ugly out there. Continue reading »

One Trader Finally Loses It:

Over the weekend, Bloomberg View’s quasi-economist wrote his latest laughable article, one which supposedly “explained” how “Everyone Worries Too Much About ‘Black Swans‘”, which in addition to being a rambling, meandering stream of consciousness that as is regularly the case with this particular author, made little sense, sparked a Twitter feud with the Nassim Taleb, the person who made the concept of a Black Swan into a household name.

We were therefore very amused to note that none other than former FX trader and fund manager, Richard Breslow who also writes for Bloomberg, seemingly had an epileptic fit upon reading the abovementioned drivel and wrote his own scathing reaction from the perspective of an actual trader, a rection which not only threw up on every argument of the so-called economist’s logic, but on everything else that now is passed off simply as, well, “the new normal.”

Here is Richard Breslow: Continue reading »
