Bond, Bear Trap … When ?

Let’s Pick A Date

Hovering right at support, the long bond (TLT) is threatening to break through to the downside.

The usual suspects are out (here and here) pontificating about how many rate hikes there’ll be this year or how the Fed’s ‘not doing enough’ to combat inflation.

By now, anybody with two basis-points rubbing together should know, the Fed’s not going to do anything for anyone except itself.

If you’re reading this and have not separated from the nonsense, predictive programming, and mass-psychosis that is the financial press, feel free to do so now.

Not that one has to ignore them altogether.

It’s ok to monitor what they’re doing but ‘ol Zig Ziglar probably stated it best when he said (paraphrasing):

‘I read the Bible and the newspaper every day. That way I know what both sides are up to’. 🙂

Incorporating that worldview into one’s analysis is a healthier, more sane approach than trusting government statistics or mainstream propaganda.

Of course, one also has to be able to strategize and read price action. That’s the hard part.

So, let’s take a look at what bonds (TLT) are doing; then come up with a potential reversal (to the upside) scenario.

Asset Confiscation

Wait !!!

Bonds up and rates down? How is that possible. Aren’t interest rates going up in 2022?

Well, it could happen.

However, there’re several behind the scenes agendas at work; not the least of which is asset confiscation of the middle-class: “You will own nothing”, right?

This confiscation scheme has been planned for so long, it’s even got a name: Neo Feudalism.

If market participants and ‘investors’ find themselves in yet another wipe-out, they’re going to flock to the supposed ‘safety’ of U.S. bonds (just like they did last time).

Couple that with a few potato-head executive orders saying the market’s too dangerous for the proletariat; only bonds can be purchased and voila!!!

Long Bonds, TLT

Will that scenario above, play out in 2022?

Of course, that’s unknown until it actually happens.

However, what we do have as shown in the weekly chart of TLT, is a potential bear trap setting up.

Price action finished this past week hovering just at support. The range narrowed and the volume declined slightly … in effect, validating that support.

We’ve got an FOMC meeting coming up with the usual suspects issuing a propaganda statement at 2:00 p.m., EST on the 26th.

What To Watch:

Between now and then, bond price action could re-write the entire script just as it did with the gold market set-up.

Back then, the original gold (GLD) breakout idea was tabled only to have it show up again a few weeks later.

Note: Gold (GLD) broke to the upside exactly at the (purple) circled area shown:

Time and location, identified in advance.

Of course, the markets are a fluid and fractal mechanism. We’re dealing with probabilities and strategy, not pure (one answer only) mathematics.

Anything can happen.

However, given all the above discussion, the chart of TLT shown, has a reasonable potential to trap the bears in a bullish reversal if it penetrates support.

What’s the most likely time for this to happen?

Well, that would be on or about 2:00 p.m., EST, January 26th (absolutely not advice, not a recommendation).

Random Notes

The usual suspects for the week.

No. 1

Succession Planning

Note: This source (linked) has not been vetted. However, it could be one of many to come; therefore, it’s included in the list.

One more brick in the wall showing major corporations all on the same script.

A script like ‘we’re all in this together’ popping up instantly nationwide. Now, we have those same entities planning to replace all those who have been injected.

No, it’s not the ones who have refused but those who willingly lined up (in most cases except children) to limit, or eliminate their lifespan.

Just in case the first link may not have the right pedigree, here’s one showing that Goldman Sachs wants to know your ‘status’.

The mainstream paints it as working to ‘be safe’ (and get injected).

It really may be to identify who needs to be replaced.

No. 2

Lumber Crash, Economy Next?

That was the update for June 5th. Now, we have the mainstream report.

Hidden within the article is a miss-statement or outright lie:

“With that being said, when you think about the amount of housing we’re going to have to build in the U.S. over the next three, five, 10 years, that’s a significant amount of demand for wood products.”

Sorry … anybody with two studs rubbing together knows there’ll be no lumber demand … except for coffins … but then again, FEMA got that worked out years ago.

No. 3

Food Supply Controlled Demolition

Ice Age Farmer bats-a-thousand as he puts out two reports here and here discussing the latest salvo in food supply destruction.

He’s been on the forefront; politely admonishing his viewers to get going with their own food production.

Anyone who’s done so in a serious way realizes quickly, there’s a big learning curve to get a private garden up to maximum production.

It takes years as the first harvest needs to produce seeds acclimated to the local region. After that, they come up like weeds.

Logically then, one needs enough stored food to last for one year.

What’s in your pantry?

No. 4

Take heed that ye be not deceived

Even though this link contains a presentation on what may be truth, the poster Rogersings NWO News! , notes correctly (in his comments below the post) there’s something wrong.

To put it succinctly:

I am the way, the truth and the life …

From this site’s perspective (The Danger Point), the presentation above allows these two (Madej and Stone), to be crossed off the list of truth sources.

Just listen to the new age lingo. What a load of bollocks.

Enough said.

No. 5

Clown Show at The G7

A world of illusion.

Is the ‘elbow bump’ just a new version of this salute?

No. 6

Priced Out of The Market

Jerimiah Babe presents (time stamp 5:38) that this firm, article linked here, has decided to take the money and run.

The middle class is priced-out for now. However, if the U.S. population craters over the next three years, won’t the joke be on them?

No. 7

It’s Tough Being An Idiot

First, they tell me I can’t travel unless I get injected.

Of course, I ‘follow the rules’ and do the right thing; get myself injected.

Now, they tell me I can’t travel because I’ve been injected.

Personal anecdote (skip to No. 8, if not interested)

Way back, right about the time Mask on, Mask off, was posted, I had a conversation with the Janitor at the local home improvement store.

Just to be clear, restrooms at these outfits are some of the most disgusting I’ve ever seen; Worse than your typical Allsup’s gas station on Hwy 287, heading to Amarillo.

This guy was South American and had lived in Brazil. During our conversation, he proceeded to tell me the ‘speck’ was a hoax. He said it was just like the propaganda being pumped out down there before elections.

His comments were additional confirmation of my own research.

The point here, he’s not ‘educated’.

He works for minimum wage, cleans up never ending human excrement from the floor and yet, he’s awake to the lies and deception.

At the same store, you can find a middle-aged ‘lot loader’ gathering shopping carts in the parking lot.

Talking with him about current events has him quoting Revelation.

So what gives?

I’ve heard one presenter (Amazing Polly, if memory serves) say that ‘stupidity is a choice’.

It’s uncomfortable to recognize and act on truth. It’s much easier to stay in the crowd where we’re all safely injected.

Therefore, our rule following traveler above chooses stupidity rather than the raw edge of reality; that reality is, nothing … absolutely nothing, is ‘safe’.

In their intentionally compromised mind, they’ve convinced themselves they’re doing the ‘right thing‘.

So be it:

The difference is, they have to stay home now as they’re not allowed to travel anymore.

No. 8

Color Blind

Two moms are filmed testifying in front of school boards.

The links are here and here.

One topic is more intense than the other; taking that part into account and closing your eyes, you will not be able to tell which one of the mom’s is black.

Just from watching, you can tell they both have character and courage. They are well spoken and educated.

Those are the exact things ‘the world‘ seeks to destroy.
