Will QE Be the Needle That Bursts the Bond Bubble in 2018?

If you wanted more evidence that Central Banks will stop at nothing to induce inflation, consider that yesterday Bank of Japan stated that it will continue with its QE program and with negative rates for as long as it takes to achieve 2% inflation. Mind you, Japan’s economy has just posted its SEVENTH straight quarter […]


Warning: Real Inflation is Already 3%… and the Fed Wants More!

While the Fed Board of Governors continues with its “we don’t see inflation anywhere” shtick, one of its own in-house measures (the underlying inflation gauge or UIG) is about to hit 3%. The UIG estimated on the “full data set” increased from a revised 2.91% in October to 2.95% in November. Source: the NY Fed. […]


Bubble Watch: Warning Signs That The Everything Bubble Will Burst in 2018

I believe 2018 will be the year inflation arrives. The reason, as I’ve noted throughout mid-2017, is that multiple Central Banks, particularly the European Central Bank (ECB), Bank of Japan (BoJ) and Swiss National Bank (SNB) have maintained emergency levels of QE and money printing, despite the fact that globally the economy is performing relatively […]


Asset Prices Are ‘Prices’ Too…

Authored by Thorstein Polleit via The Mises Institute, We live in inflationary times. Some people might consider this statement controversial. This is because these days inflation is widely understood as a rise in the consumer price index (CPI) of more than 2 percent per year. However, there are convincing reasons to question this viewpoint. On […]


Federal Reserve Created Bitcoin and Other Percolating Bubbles – Michael Carino, Greenwich Endeavors

The Federal Reserve’s tools for achieving its dual mandate of low inflation and full employment manipulate interest rates and therefore markets.  This manipulation of rates reverberates globally. Their manipulation historically had been more light handed and invisible to most of the public.  However, over the last decade, their impact on interest rates and yield levels […]


Bubble Watch: The Bank of Japan is About to Shock the World

The Bank of Japan (BoJ) will RAISE rates in 2018. And it’s going to collapse the stock market. The #1 driver of the stock market is Central Bank money printing. In 2017 alone, the BoJ and the European Central Bank (ECB) have printed over $1.5 TRILLION and funneled it into the financial system. The primary […]


Finally, An Honest Inflation Index – Guess What It Shows

Authored by John Rubino via DollarCollapse.com, Central bankers keep lamenting the fact that record low interest rates and record high currency creation haven’t generated enough inflation (because remember, for these guys inflation is a good thing rather than a dangerous disease). To which the sound money community keeps responding, “You’re looking in the wrong place! […]


2018 Will Be When Central Bank Policy Crashes Into the Wall

The bubble in sovereign bonds is looking dangerously close to popping. And ironically, what could burst it is the very thing Central Banks have been pursuing aggressively for the last 9 years: inflation. As I explain in my bestselling book The Everything Bubble, Treasury yields adjust to account for inflation. The relationship is not perfect as […]


You’re Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming

Authored by Chris Martenson via PeakProsperity.com, I hate to break it to you, but chances are you're just not prepared for what’s coming. Not even close.  Don't take it personally. I'm simply playing the odds. After spending more than a decade warning people all over the world about the futility of pursuing infinite exponential economic […]


What is The Everything Bubble? And how can you prepare for it?

What do formerly successful hedge funds going out of business, wacky economic data points, and the election of populists like Donald Trump all have in common? All of them are the product of The Everything Bubble. In the aftermath of the 2008 Crisis, Central Banks attempted to corner the sovereign bond market via low interest […]


Blain: “The High-Yield Market Is Where The Bond Supernova Will Erupt”

Blain’s Morning Porridge, submitted by Bill Blain of Mint Partners It’s a US holiday and markets will be thin through today. To show my solidarity with our American cousins, I’m off for a proper lunch with clients in the West End and Malbec rules* will probably apply. What happened in China this morning? Stocks down […]


FOMC Signals Dovish Inflation Concerns, Warns “Sharp Reversal” In Markets Could Damage Economy

With a dumping dollar and collapsing yield curve since November's FOMC, all eyes are on the Minutes for any signals of The Fed hawkishly ignoring inflation concerns but instead a few Fed officials opposed near-term hikes (on the basis of weak inflation). Furthermore, several Fed officials warned of the potential for bubbles, "in light of […]


Central Banks Finally Hit Their Targets… Just In Time For Another Crisis

They finally did it. Since 2008, Central Banks have been desperately trying to generate inflation. They know they cannot produce growth (hence why both the Fed and the ECB abandoned this as a goal in their statements back in 2013)… so they have chosen to “target” inflation. To that end, Central Banks have maintained Zero […]


Who Are You Going to Trust, the Fed or $76 Trillion in “Smart Money”?

Let’s talk about inflation. There are two types of inflation in the world… the “inflation” that you and I experience in the form of a rising cost of living induced by Central Banks devaluing our currencies… …and the inflation that Central Banks are “targeting” in the bizarre claim that somehow hitting said targets will unleash […]


Over Two Thirds of Global GDP Is Entering an Inflationary Shock

The world is careening towards an inflationary shock. As was the case with the beginning of the Housing Crash, few are noticing what's happening. And even fewer realize the true scale of what's about to take place. Below is a chart you have to see. This chart shows the Producer Prices Index for the four […]
