No. 1

Airplanes Dropping Like Flies.

A very brief search of the most recent crashes or incidents are here, here, here, here, here, and here.

It’s all just a coincidence or maybe it’s because of this.

The repercussions of on-going events are just getting started.

This is a long-haul chess game.

No. 2

Americans Take Up The Gauntlet … Go To Vegas

What a pathetic bunch of cowards.

If you’re blowing whatever’s left of your money (or credit), it’s likely you have no real marketable (high pay) skills, no talent, lazy, obese; so, we’re off to Vegas.

Add to that, we’re just at the start of the depression.

Patera, from Appalachia’s Homestead (time stamp 4:24) addresses the problem a little differently but her final assessment is the same.

It’s true, there are some barriers to learning a new skill.

Dan from i-Allegedly points out the high cost to get a CDL, to be a trucker.

However, those who are awake, those with their nose in the KJV Bible, those leaving the corrupt church (in droves), knew that current events were coming; they took action way before it became obvious.

Remember this post?

It’s been nearly two years, to the day.

No. 3

Deflation Indicators

Not all prices are rising.

As the real estate sector gets vaporized, we have the natural fall-out, building materials dropping in price.

Uneducated Economist reports here, that’s exactly what’s happening.

Price reductions as we’re going into the summer building season, is a massive indicator of evaporating demand.

No. 4

Food First … Then Gold & Silver

Everything is going according to (their) plan.

Yet another indicator of the current strange weather (warfare) that’s going to strain the system.

Here’s the link to the very first post that specifically referenced Genesis 41; posted on December 31, 2020.

As with the ‘Mask on, Mask off (linked above), how has the post aged?

Is it still relevant?

What about this quote … seemed extreme at the time.

They paid for the corn first, with gold and silver.  Then they paid with their livestock.  Then they paid by selling themselves into life-long slavery. We can equate that last part (slavery) as getting the vax.

No. 5

Chess Board Strategy

It’s a bitter pill to realize we’re in the long game. ‘Normal’, is not coming back … ever.

That does not mean there’re no opportunities. There are.

Those opportunities (if we survive) are/will be potentially life changing for the good.

The Sunday futures market opened about two hours ago and we’re up around +0.40%, in the S&P.

Let’s see if that spills over to the Monday open; remembering that we’re short the real estate sector with the finger on the sell trigger (not advice, not a recommendation).

Weekly Wrap-Up

The Usual Suspects

It’s about two hours before the Sunday futures open and we’re about to see what happens next.

In the meantime, the links below are from the week just past or of special note for our bear-market conditions.

Like Mike Tyson says …

‘Everybody’s got a plan ’till you get hit in the face’.

The following are not in any particular order.

No. 1

The ARKK Takes On Water

It can probably be safely stated, this ARKK, was not likely built to Biblical specifications.

Maybe they used the wrong Wood. 🙂

No. 2

Hold The Narrative At All Costs

If one lives long enough, eventually you may reach the point where you’re tired of being played.

Once that happens, eyes are opened, you see the narrative clearly; that’s it’s everywhere.

Take this link for example … oh so many narratives.

Like defining ‘investor’ and ‘trader’; defining how each of those two behave in the markets.

The article surmises that investors think traders are not as smart as they because … well, investors have more letters after their names (CFA, CFP, CTA, and on … maybe even PhD … whooo).

Traders, well, they’re just circus monkeys and volatility junkies.

This narrative is beat into the collective conscious incessantly as far as can be remembered. It keeps the herd (investors, traders alike) firmly in the box.

Remember this link?

However, the great speculators back in the day, Livermore, Wyckoff, Loeb, were none of those things.

Their actions were determined on what the market was saying about itself.

Obviously, if you’re isolated, focused on what price is actually doing, not watching the news, then you’re not part of the herd.

You’re going against the (established and approved) narrative, a dangerous animal indeed.

No. 3

Bear Market Links

It’s time to brush up on bear market strategies.

Way back in Middle School history class, I could not understand the mania.

‘Four Generations’

The Average Life Of A Fiat Currency

What if the ‘imminent collapse’ of the dollar is overblown by about 50 – years?

According to this just out, on private gold-filled currency, the article states average life of a fiat currency, is four generations. It goes on to say there are exceptions like the British Pound, continuing on even after hundreds of years.

The Black Swan

In Taleb’s book ‘The Black Swan’, he says it’s an event that nobody expects. It has long lasting repercussions and permanent change.

However, what most if not nearly everybody ignores or leaves out, is his alternate definition. That is:

A Black Swan can also be a future event that’s widely accepted as fact, that does not happen !!!

Is that where we are with the U.S. Dollar?

Even though the dollar has not collapsed and in fact, has rallied as we’ll see below, the ‘collapse’ talk continues unabated.

It’s easy to talk about dollar collapse.

It’s what gets the clicks. No matter that an actual collapse may be years if not decades away.

As of this post, how many ‘monopoly money’ YouTube videos can be found? Seems like it’s the same number or more than, ‘gold to skyrocket higher’.

Well, so far, gold has not skyrocketed higher.

On top of that, this site’s even provided an exclusive correlation that gold’s moving inversely to corn.

See ‘Insight Note at the end of this post.

Ever since the ‘Derecho‘, it’s never been the same.

Back to the dollar.

No doubt, the dollar was whacked over the past trading week. Let’s take a look at what the UUP, price action is saying about itself.

Dollar, UUP, Weekly Chart

The unmarked chart shows the dollar oscillating, testing support for six-months at the beginning of 2021.

Then, in mid-June ’21, UUP pivoted decisively higher (gold, GLD, pushed lower) and never came back to those levels.

Of course, this past week The Usual Suspects were out talking about the dollar and ‘monopoly money’.

Since the ‘gold skyrocketing higher’ forecast failed spectacularly, along with it being the investor’s fault, we then had the ‘clueless‘ and now, it’s ‘monopoly money’.

The chart below shows last week’s bloodbath has served to bring UUP, down to an established trend-line.

It’s important to note, with all that (down) volume, the most since early 2020, UUP was not able (thus far) to break through the trend (blue line).

That leaves the dollar at or near, the danger point.

Continued, sustained selling, risks breaking the uptrend.

If the opposite takes place and UUP starts to rally, last week may have been an inflection point (to the upside).

Gold (GLD) and the dollar appear to still be inversely correlated.

Summary:

Ever since removal of the link to gold in 1971, the dollar has the potential to collapse at any moment.

However, in this case, we at least have some historical precedent that on average, fiat currencies tend to last four generations before becoming worthless.

Wyckoff sates in his writings over and again, ‘somebody always knows something’.

If there’s a collapse afoot, he tells us to look at what the market is saying about itself (not advice, not a recommendation).

Insight Note:

It’s been a strange coincidence over the past year or so, ideas presented on this site make their way to certain YouTube sites either in the titles, or within their content.

The timing of this phenomenon, that within a day or two, ‘post it first here, see it on YouTube there’, has occurred more times than one would consider as just ‘coincidence’.

Admittedly, the insights (making their way to certain YouTubers) have not been exclusive … that is, until now.

Recognition of the Gold/Corn inverse correlation, first posted here, is unique to this site.

As far as is known, this correlation has not been presented on any other financial site or YouTube channel or any other medium.

It may be an important data-point and map into this site’s long-time premise; it’s the corn and the grain first, then gold and silver (not advice, not a recommendation).

For more detail, search for Genesis 41.

When ideas from others are incorporated into the analysis presented on this site, full acknowledgement of the source is cited.

As Dr. Elder said in his book ‘Come Into My Trading Room’:

“I have zero respect for thieves”

He’s talking about the theft of his book title: “Trading For A Living”. He goes on to say, (paraphrasing)

‘Do you really want to use market analysis or input from someone that can’t think for themselves?’

Authorization:

Therefore, this footnote is authorizing the further use of the Gold/Corn inverse correlation by others in the industry if they so choose with the following caveat:

If one of the sites monitored (or some other media) uses this exclusive insight, and does so without referencing the source, it puts this author in the unenviable (but not unfamiliar) position of calling out the thief by name … not unlike what Stew Peters is doing (to the hoax/genocide perpetrators) on his broadcasts.

This market environment’s providing a fantastic public service:

It’s separating out the hucksters, the shysters and the otherwise incompetent from those who are, or who are striving to provide a service or useful insight.

The general investing public may find out soon enough, they’re on their own. Maybe unbeknownst to them, they’ve always been on their own.

The Usual Suspects

Special Edition … ‘The Dam Is About To Break’

We have a crescendo of events.

No. 1

Corruption At The Highest Levels

Hearings on Capitol Hill on what we call ‘The Speck’ (to avoid censorship) and “corruption at the highest levels”.

Those of us who are awake, already know about the corruption … it’s just nice to see it hitting the mainstream.

No. 2

Cowards, To Brave ? … Probably Not

Max Igan in this video seems to think those who have been brainwashed into murdering their own children, will all of a sudden become brave and wake-up.

No, an alternate (more likely) view is, those who have been duped, fooled, the cowards, or just plain stupid, will likely turn their anger, not to the perpetrators … but to those who are even now, being referred to as ‘purebloods’.

In his own video, at time stamp 10:30, he shows the type of behavior that may go to a whole new level.

Does anyone think these people are going to become more sane, when they find out the truth of the injections?

No. 3

Greedy Implosion ?

Another Stew Peters broadcast where the guest, Karen Kingston has sifted through legal contracts, patent application and patent abstract documents.

She may have found a chink in the armor.

Looks like in the haste for profits, one manufacturer of ‘Speck’ protection may have done so outside the umbrella of lawsuit ‘immunity’.

No. 4

Robinhood, Swimming Naked ?

It’s happening fast.

When the (economic) tide goes out, that’s when we see who’s left their swimsuit behind.

HOOD stock price may need to brace for impact … at zero.

No. 5

Bear Markets … The Great Equalizer

Everybody’s a genius in a bull market.

When the trend turns South, that’s the opportunity for one’s market skills to stand apart from the ‘genius’ crowd.

As this article says, ‘bear markets are tough’.

Indeed. We can see how tough (and profitable) they are from Livermore’s attempt to short the market during The Panic of 1907.

As stated in Reminiscences, the story goes that he recognized a huge market break coming but started shorting too early … in 1906, as the market continued to rally.

Eventually, those rallies completely depleted his capital. He went broke.

The book goes on to say he began trading again later on but does not say how he got another capital stake; just that his credit was good at the brokerage office of ‘Ed Harding’.

We have to go to Wyckoff’s text from 1910, to find out that Livermore hocked his car for $5,000 and may have used that to re-establish his trading account.

After that, his trading errors corrected, he eventually covered his short positions at the bottom of the panic, October 24th of 1907, with over one million in profits (around 30 million in today’s dollars).

No. 6

T-Mobile: Set To Implode By April

Is dumb going to get smart? Like in No. 2, above, the answer is probably not.

T-Mobile is set for implosion by April.

No. 7

What’s The Motive ?

If you ever watch ‘Forensic Files’ or similar broadcasts, the police and the lawyers are always looking for the motive to commit the crime.

Well, here it is.

No. 8

And Then, There’s This …

Activist Post in this article is naming names.

Data and artifacts are piling up to dam-break levels.

There’s a virtual army of citizen journalism working to discover and sift through databases and documents.

This Week’s Usual Suspects

Old Paradigm, Continues To Unravel

Bogart

One of the qualities that define leadership is the ability to recognize shifts in power or (public) perception that may lead to a complete change of direction.

Once that’s done, the change or new thinking is crafted into an approach whose objective is to successfully navigate (for however long) what will eventually become a ‘no-brainer’ way of thinking or acting.

As the old way(s) disintegrate, those who refuse or are unable to recognize this change, are likely to start ‘acting out’ in bizarre fashion as they realize the old method doesn’t work anymore.

They’re not able to see the shift as they were never leaders (to begin with) in the previous construct.

In part, this is what Buffett (not an endorsement) may have meant when he said … ‘It’s only when the tide goes out, that you find out who’s been swimming naked.’

Well, the tide’s going out in a big way and the water is receding with ever more rapidity.

As said before, what’s happening right now, is a fantastic public service for those paying attention.

A more efficient way could not have been constructed to reveal who has the best chance to be left standing (and surviving) as, or if, we come out the other side.

‘Acting Out’

Two links are going to be provided but not the ones to the specific examples at hand. Clicking on the links below will enable one to follow the rabbit trail and perform their own investigation.

Those links are here and here.

Into The Void

As the old way continues to self-immolate with what looks like increasing speed, a huge (leadership) void is opening.

Actually, that void was always there; posers were only posing, fooling the easily fooled.

Now, the jig is up.

The smart ones in this on-going collapse have already realized, probably a long time ago, ‘certifications’ and lots of letters after your name mean absolutely nothing when it all hits the fan.

They either are themselves, or are looking (and rightly so) for hardened leadership and/or experience.

As a result, we see real men (and women) stepping into the void: Men like Bjorn Andreas Bull-Hansen, Stew Peters and Dr. Vernon Coleman.

Women like Good Patriot.

Interestingly enough, at time stamp: 12:40 in her link she gives reference to Genesis 41. Coincidence? No.

Acceleration Ahead

Look for everything (supply chain, market implosion, The Speck, as we call it) to accelerate.

We can also get our popcorn ready for the self-imposed demolition of the ‘wealth management’ industry.

Prechter said it decades ago, ‘the next mega bear market will bring this sector to its knees’.

However, that’s an in-depth topic for another time.

In the meantime, go ahead and check for yourself. Pick any wealth management firm and go to their website.

I randomly went to three, just now.

One has a YouTube presence; one is local, and one is nationwide with over 7,000 ‘associates’.

All of them, every last one, are talking about the latest employment figures as if they are real.

Even Jerimiah Babe and Dan from I-Allegedly have stated the figures are false.

Remember, these outfits are “certified” by the same (combined) entity that’s pumping out the false data.

Just sayin’ 🙂

Random Notes & Usual Suspects

Special, ‘Idiots in Action‘, Update

No. 1

Normalizing The Non-Normal

Dr. Vernon Coleman has been at that front of ‘The Speck’ narrative from the start.

HIs latest video gives his estimate on life expectancy of those who have been ‘protected’.

No. 2

Pilot Casualty List

The Stew Peters show has updated several times about ‘incidents‘ in flight but now we have the actual receipts.

Industry trade magazine ‘Air Line Pilot’, gives names and dates of those no longer around.

Linked here. The first 7:50, minutes covers the pilot casualties.

No. 3

‘Links’ Are Not Endorsements

From No. 2 above, at time stamp 10:27, the presenter gets into material that those ‘awake’, know all too well.

We should also know, the same tactic (trust the plan) was used during the Russian revolution of 1917. It was used to placate the patriots so they would take no action.

That it’s even being discussed in the above link, is highly disappointing. The airline magazine list is a fact …. the rest? Not so much.

No. 4

Schools To Get Ready

Get ready for kids to start dropping … thanks to idiot parents.

No. 5

Surrounded By A Sea Of Stupidity.

As said before, no one is going to help this crowd (in No. 4) by becoming part of them. Some (like my own extended family) are adamant about remaining stupid.

What can you do?

Well, from this site’s perspective (market analysis), there are a lot of asset, and estate sales coming up.

Carry cash because by that time, credit cards won’t work.

No. 6

Vitamin C … Grow Your Own

Ever wonder why there’s such a war on Dandelion?

Why not a war on milkweed or crab-grass?

No, it’s a war on Dandelion.

Here’s a nearly two-hour presentation on Vitamin C (disclaimer, I have not watched the entire report).

No. 7

Boosters, To The Moon !!!

As this link shows, it will never end … that is, until the person ‘protected’ ends.

“… as long as people believe …”, time stamp 1:27

No. 8

Mr. E Archives

Mr. E, was one of the casualties of the YouTube purge a few years back.

Here’s one of his clips that’s relevant to today.

No. 9

Smart = Stupid

No, it’s not from the Ministry Of Truth.

It’s the ‘smart device‘, showing how vulnerable the typical non-thinker (new word for idiot), is, and is going to be, when internet interruptions (cyber-attack) really get started.

‘Locked out of Disney’ … well, Boo Hoo … Плак-Плак (translation of Plack Plack)

No. 10

Land-Line … Lifeline

Back in the day before there was streaming internet, I used to call up TeleBroker and code in the ticker symbol with the phone buttons.

I would then listen to the high, low, current price, and volume. This was done a few times a day.

The purpose was, to get a ‘feel’ of the market. From listening to the action, I could feel it (time stamp 3:27).

At the time, the stock being monitored was Theragenics (back then, as THRX).

I could tell from the phone action, there was distribution going on around the 5.00 – area. This went on for several days. As price would near the 5.00 level, volume would come in and push it lower.

Thearagenics, indeed peaked around 5.00, and then went into a multi-year rachet lower to an ultimate low in December of ’93 or ’94, if memory serves.

After that low, it went up 1,000% or more … a ten-bagger.

How many are prepared to hit the phone and use it for trading action. How many still have land-lines?

As you might have guessed, since this author’s still using ‘rabbit ears’, we still have a hard-wire, land-line as well.

No. 11

Continual Growth & Improvement

If someone started diligently researching and educating themselves non-stop in the markets since 1987 (when I opened my first brokerage account), how much growth has there been since that time?

Even as the ‘likes’ come in on material written just a few months ago, I go back and re-read, that research.

Sometimes the thought is ‘that was a good post’.

Most of the time, not.

I think to myself, ‘you can do better …. much better.’

So, it is with life.

We can be like the servant that buries his talent or we can be like the ones who go out and risk.

Even from a Biblical perspective, it just doesn’t end well for those who refuse to think and work.

No. 1

War Room

To borrow the phrase from Bjorn Bull-Hansen

In that case, you’ll need this:

Ammo Price Chart

Looks like from the chart, we’re about as far (down) as we’re going to get.

No. 2

Your Papers, Please’

Just like something out of the Great Escape … only, it’s not a movie. Go to time stamp 1:56, “ausweis“, is “identity card”.

Youre travel papers here and also, here

No. 3

Fall From Grace

Ark Imploding

For those ‘awake’, it’s obvious when you see it.

No. 4

Cost Of Living Just Went Up

Cost of dying is free … available at your local drugstore.

No. 5

Jumping Ship

Insiders and hedge funds alike, are bailing out.

Insiders are bailing at the fastest pace in market history.

No. 6

Not Everyone’s An Idiot

Take heart.

Here’s at least one person … and a young one at that who’s figured it out.

Like our working-class Cockney Brit, from last week, if they can do it, what excuse does everyone else have?

No. 7

Coming Back To Haunt?

One has to wonder if this piece of work will rue the day when those statements were made.

No. 8

Turn Off The Lights

There are two ways (at least) to look at Germany’s plan to shut down its nuclear power plants.

Frist:

They are complete idiots. Power prices will surge as a result.

Second:

They know that demand is going to evaporate as more are ‘protected’ each day. Better to close everything down while the experienced manpower’s still available.

No. 9

What’s In The Poo ?

Well, it’s not the latest ‘variant’ as this article goes to great lengths to suggest.

To put it in brief terms … it’s to see if you’re eating enough GMO food and insect protien.

Don’t believe that?

Go here. … Time Stamp 4:11

No. 10

Look At The Background

This link, is to a now familiar story.

However, the real story is what’s just behind the woman being interviewed.

Is that a six-foot or seven-foot-wide screen?

I wouldn’t know.

My TV is a used one. It was found after the 20-year-old, JVC tube TV’s speaker died.

Personally, I’m partial to ‘tube’ TVs as I know it’s not watching me, while I’m watching it.

No cable. ‘Rabbit ears’. Remember them?

The result: Mainstream’s ‘programming’ is ineffective.

No. 11

‘Turning It Up To Number 11

The assessment on No. 10, might seem harsh to those new to this site.

So, let’s go here and remind ourselves what it’s really all about.

It’s tragic that so many have gone for so long without really being challenged to think.

You’re not going to help them by becoming part of them. All that one can do at this point, is to offer a different perspective.

Plant the seed and walk away.

If they choose to wake up, they’ll be back.

No. 12

It’s The Food

We’re in a long-term chess game and it’s likely to get very real.

However, even bad news could contain seeds of opportunity.

Go to time stamp 1:15 in ‘ice age farmer’s’ link, just above. ‘Countries have or are going to stop exporting food’.

Part of the reason this site has not recently covered corn, wheat, soybeans, is they are at elevated levels.

Sure, they could go higher but the risk of some kind of ‘announcement’ to restrict exports is also rising.

Just like Jimmy Carter did with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, so too could the current administration come out with a similar announcement.

At that point, if it happens, there’s likely to be a sharp, deep down-move in the grains.

That’s when to look for opportunity

Random Notes

Special ‘No-Normal’ Edition

No. 1

Dealing With ‘Brain Dead’

If you have to deal with asleep, brain-dead, self-hypnotized, condescending, mainstream news-feeders, here’s a tip.

Remember, it’s not “your opinion”.

Patent numbers, patent descriptions, dates, names, payrolls, money trails, corporations, whistleblower testimonies, irrefutable compilations like this, are not an opinion.

They are fact.

No. 2

No Infrastructure

From time stamp 12:08, to 14:27, in the above link (repeated here), there are 108, players or individuals receiving the benefits of ‘Speck’ protection.

We call it The Speck from Horton Hears A Who … because it’s so small, nobody’s ever found one; not even the Cee Dee Cee or the N ‘EYE’ H. Sorry for the ‘code’.

The majority of those in the compilation are so protected, they won’t ever need another update.

You might say, they’re ‘fully protected’.

We can take that montage and extrapolate it to the rest of the population. Remember this?

It does not take much to figure out, rapidly increasing instability is the way forward.

While there may be an infrastructure bill in name … if workers are not available and supplies restricted or non-existent, there’s no infrastructure.

Admittedly, that’s very oversimplified.

Sure, there may be some projects that get started and have limited progress.

However, after reading this summary of the built-in insanity, one really has to actually be favoring a collapse so these projects don’t get implemented to any large degree.

Bringing us to the next item.

No. 3

Double-Secret-Probation, ‘Omicron’

It would be nice to laugh at stupidity if stupidity wasn’t so dangerous.

The powers are wasting no time … declaring a ‘State of Emergency’ even though nothing has happened.

They openly mock the idiots that still buy into the hype; their contempt, completely out in the open.

Even a working-class Cockney Brit, has got it figured out. It can’t be that hard, can it?

Note at time stamp 2:40, it shows that we may have already had the Epsilon variant. It must have come and gone.

I completely missed it. My bad. 🙂

No. 4

The Sheep … Too Far Gone

A hopeful comment taken at time stamp 4:02, at this link:

Those who have bought in, and voluntarily injected themselves … even if they were lucky enough to get a placebo, will not wake up.

Amadha Vollmer has stated it well when she said, ‘when the truth finally hits, they will lose their minds.’

From a Biblical standpoint, that does not mean we give up on them. Plant the seed but then walk away and continue to prepare.

If by some miracle … because that’s what it would have to be, they do wake up, it’s your opportunity to take the lead and direct their (an your) next steps.

Be prepared … it could happen.

No. 5

So, Now It’s CXVXD-21 ?

You can’t make this up and it’s more insane by the day.

The sheer repetition of the fear narrative, like ever-increasing drug use for the same effect, has got to be wearing off … becoming less effective with each news release.

On top of that, there are literally less people able to buy into the narrative

Reference No 1, above. They have already received full protection; not subject to further updates.

No. 6

Sky High Ammo Prices

Going to the comment sections on YouTube sites or vendor sites, has the typical collection of blowhards saying:

“I refuse to pay these prices. I’m going to wait until they come down”.

It’s possible, at least some of these guys are the same middle-aged, overweight, out-of-shape posers, that like to have useless crap all over their AR.

When the bravest guy in the room is a woman (linked here), it means, that trash hanging off your AR is a bill-board; effectively saying:

‘I’m hiding behind my AR crap and probably a coward’.

Another woman, linked here, has actually decided to use the AR platform.

However, she trains with ‘Iron Sights’ … BAM !!!

Let’s go to this link and time stamp 1:13.

If that’s the future availability of our currently high-priced product, meaning there is none, does it really matter how much it costs now?

Of course, the posers are busy posing.

They won’t matter when it all hits. They’ll still be waiting for prices to come down on something that’s no longer there.

S&P, In ‘Spring Position’

Price action penetrated support last week and is set to attempt a rally.

The futures market opened about 90-minutes ago and shows S&P trading up about +0.80%.

That upward bias may also lift the Basic Materials Sector (DJUSBM) and possibly offer a low risk short position via SMN (not advice, not a recommendation)

We’ll be watching.

The Usual Suspects For the Week

No. 1

‘Imagine The Hysteria …’

The quote below, taken from the October 14th post:

“If GLD breaks the trend-line, getting back to the 170 – 171, level (up-thrust), imagine the hysteria.” 

Well, at Friday’s close, GLD is currently at 172.61 and reached an up-thrust high (thus far) of 174.67.

Now, a re-cap of the hysteria (most recent first):

Von Greyerz: Gold-O-Mania Is Coming!

Gold Breakout Imminent!

Gold shhh…

Gold Probes Multi-Month Highs

“$3000 In Months, Not Years”

Gold & The Dollar Soar

Gold & Crypto Surge

That’s just within the last eleven days.

All of the above, brings us to the next item.

U.S. Inflation. Hardest Hit Categories

The linked article goes on to detail where prices have risen the most … well, almost.

This chart shows the financial press approved categories and respective price increases.

But wait, there’s a category left out.

What about ‘ammunition’. The price of that category is up (depending on source) anywhere from 300% – 1,000%.

You have to wonder why that’s not on the list.

Personal anecdote:

A trip to the local Wal-Mart just yesterday to get mealworms for the hens (local feed store mom & pop has been out for weeks) gave opportunity to go by the sporting goods and the ‘ammo counter’.

The counter’s thirty-foot rack, was stripped bare.

All of it gone except for a few boxes of Federal 22,target, and some 12-guage.

Later in the day, there’s a strange twist while searching for product using this site,

The comments (rating) section have people bragging about how their ammo, is older production.

It’s completely turned upside down. Back in the day, you wanted the freshest stuff available.

Now, because of difficulties finding parts, product and experienced employees that have not been jabbed, quality has apparently declined.

The inference is, if you can prove that your ammo was manufactured during 2019, or before let’s say, you might be able to charge a premium on the secondary market.

Paul Harrell has shown, linked here, that properly stored, ammo will still be viable after 50-years or more.

Which brings us to the next item.

Shipbuilder, Backpedals

Turns out, this shipbuilder’s not quite ready to destroy its own business.

However, the damage has (likely) already been done.

Anyone with production experience knows the way to destroy product quality, is to have an on-again, off-again, and then back on-again, production line.

It does not matter the product.

If production can’t be sustained, uninterrupted, for periods at a time, there really is no quality. Too many variables have been introduced.

This is where we are with all product. It may be part of the reason retail sales have spiked.

Get the good stuff now.

The Usual Suspects For The Week

No. 1

Institutional Destruction

The short video clip by Mark Dice, linked here, shows how former successful and possibly even meaningful (on a rare occasion) movie productions/franchises are being systematically destroyed.

This phenomenon is not just Hollywood but nationwide.

To be specific, the same type of destruction is occurring in the ‘wealth management’ industry.

One of the latest salvos is this ‘initiative’ to make that industry more diverse.

The comments section talks about the ‘talent going elsewhere’ to start their own business.

That may be true but remember, ‘Fiduciary Responsibility’ requirements make sure the person with the least amount of knowledge is in control … the client.

Which brings us to the next bullet item.

No. 2

The ‘Average Investor’

Years ago, somewhere around the early 1990s, Tony Robbins interviewed Robert Prechter Jr.

One of the questions Robbins asked was this:

‘What should the average investor do?’

Prechter’s response was timeless. He said:

‘Quit being the average investor’

Absolutely brutal but true.

It was a polite way of saying to get busy; stop being the ignorant, lazy, average American.

Study and learn the markets. That way you won’t be subject to the corruption and villainy that permeates the financial services industry.

Don’t think that statement’s true?

Just watch a couple of episodes of “American Greed” and see how many involve financial scams that fleece an unsuspecting investment public.

In the above link, our ‘professional’ positions short in a biotech company, Orexigen Therapeutics.

If there’s one thing an aspiring market trader speculator learns at the start, it’s never, never, never go short on biotech (at least the individual equity).

Anything can happen … and it did.

Flash Crash Ready

This just out from ZeroHedge; Is another Flash-Crash in the cards?

First off, let’s review what a flash crash looks like.

Link to the 2010, crash.

“Paper” = Big institutional selling

’79s are trading … all the way down !!! ‘

Even way back in my SeekingAlpha days, I proposed the next major market hit would be like nothing else.

Possibly a 20% – 50%, drop overnight or something similar.

Is it not better to plan, analyze and position (not advice, not a recommendation) with a Black Swan event in mind or just go merrily along thinking you’re as close to the entry door as the exit?
