Market Watch


Stop! This is NOT like the dot-com bubble... it’s much worse, according to this chart MarketWatch

Bull market depends on whether Trump can deliver on key promises MarketWatch

In this chart, Lebowitz stacks up the metrics from the years running up to the dot-com explosion versus what we’ve seen since 2012:


Lebowitz acknowledged, of course, that equity valuations back in 1999 were, as proven after the fact, “grossly elevated.”

But when put up against a backdrop of economic factors, he says those numbers appear to be relatively tame compared with today.

“Some will likely argue with this analysis and claim that Donald Trump’s pro-growth agenda will invigorate the outlook for the economy and corporate earnings,” he wrote. “While that is a possibility, that argument is highly speculative as such policies face numerous headwinds along the path to implementation. Economic, demographic and productivity trends all portend stagnation.”

His bottom line: “There is little justification for paying such a historically steep premium for what could likely be feeble earnings growth for years to come.”

Vast majority of media coverage on Trump’s first month in office ‘hostile’ – study



Media coverage of President Donald Trump during his first month in office has been round-the-clock and a new study has found it's been negative nearly 90 percent of the time.


On Wednesday, the conservative media watchdog Media Research Center (MRC) released its findings which showed that 88 percent of news coverage during the president’s honeymoon phase was “hostile.”


For their work, research director Rich Noyes and analyst Mike Ciandella examined news coverage from the “Big Three” evening news networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC.

Between January 20 and February 18, Noyes and Ciandella found that 16 hours were devoted to covering Trump and his administration, which they say is more than half, 54 percent, of the total news coverage.

Out of the 16 hours of coverage, the inquiry revealed that 88 percent of it was negative.

The analysis focused on the tone and content of statements made by reporters, newscasters, and “non-partisan talking heads,” which included “experts and average citizens,” while excluding soundbites from “identified partisans.”

One of the main sources of hostility came from newscasters, who “often injected their own anti-Trump editorial tone into the coverage,” the research says.


WHY This?

"On Wednesday, the conservative media watchdog Media Research Center (MRC) released its findings which showed that 88 percent of news coverage

Because he threatens the Game - as it is being played now.

The Lie Stream Media wants to remove Trump, and the threat to their methods of control.


For We-the-people, the threat is NOT TRUMP, it is the existing control structure

Why Goldcorp's CEO Isn’t Worried About Rising Rates Kitco Video News - 05:43PM

--- ---
Gold investors are concerned over rising interest rates, but Goldcorp CEO David Garofalo doesn’t seem to worried. ‘I don’t think anybody believes that we’re in an environment where interest rates are going to go up appreciably any time soon, the economic recovery globally is far too fragile,’ he told Kitco News on the sidelines of the BMO Metals & Mining Conference. ‘At the end of the day, real interest rates, given that inflation is starting to pick up, are still going to be appreciably in negative territory.’
. . .

Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen today eluded to the fact that an interest rate hike this month is almost a certainty. With absolute clarity, she spoke about the outcome of this month’s FOMC meeting indicating that a, “March hike is likely appropriate if the economy evolves as expected.”

Speaking to the Economic Club of Chicago, one of her strongest statements announcing a rate hike was, “Indeed, at our meeting later this month, the Committee will evaluate whether employment and inflation are continuing to evolve in line with our expectations, in which case a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate.”

The next FOMC meeting will be held March 14 -15, and over this last week, the probability of a rate hike has jumped up exponentially. Fed Funds Futures, which creates the market-based odds, is now predicting a 97.1% probability...

. . .

In an interview with Kitco News, Eugen Weinberg, market analyst at Commerzbank said that he is bullish on gold because he is bearish on everything else. But he added that he can’t ignore the current short-term trend.

“Gold tends to get weaker ahead of Fed rate hikes but its only short-term weakness,” he said. “I could see gold dropping below $1,200 in the near-term.”

Despite the short-term weakness, Weinberg said that there are still a lot of strong hands hold on to their gold, which is positive for the precious metal this year.

“Investors holding on to gold are not focused on the Fed rate hikes. They are focused on real rates, which are expected to remain low as inflation is likely to continue to pick up.”

Christopher Vecchio, senior currency strategist at DailyFX agreed that gold could struggle in the near-term; however, he likes the yellow metal as a long-term play. While markets are pricing in a March rate hike, the forecast for the number rates this year hasn’t increased.

“We are only seeing the timing shift and not the trajectory in rates and I think that will be good for gold,” he said. “Once we get through the March 15 meeting, I think we could see gold rally again.”

Levels to Watch

According to analysts a key support level to watch in the near-term will be $1,220 an ounce, which was a major resistance point as gold pushed off its December lows. The $1,220 area also represents gold’s 100-day moving average.

. . .

Mining magnate and chairman of Franco-Nevada Pierre Lassonde is confident in the mining sector for 2017, noting that gold prices bottomed over a year ago and should only move higher. Speaking with Kitco News at the BMO Metals & Mining Conference, Lassonde said expectations that gold prices will fall under pressure because of increased interest rates may be misplaced. ‘The rate hikes are meaningless,’ he says.

Why is UK housing now so out of reach for so many people? Yes, property has been a safe bet, but we ask what are the economic risks and the social side effects of ever increasing house prices?

"If you're so pressured that you're just trying to meet your basic living expenses then you don't have any slack, and that slack is really needed to take creative risks."

There are now nine times fewer people under the age of thirty holding mortgages compared to twenty-five ago. How have we ended up here after decades of policies that were supposed to create a property-owning democracy?

"The demographics are saying ultimately nobody can afford to take that new mortgage and that's when the whole - not property ladder but property elevator - collapses"

03.05.17 – This Is The Only Chart Americans Should Be Worrying About Right Now

  • In 2015, President Obama and Republican congressional leaders agreed to suspend the federal debt ceiling until March 15, 2017. After that date – less then two weeks from now – the Treasury will surpass its cumulative $20 trillion borrowing authority.
  • And while the stock market (and VIX) signal utter calm, signs of stress are very clear in America’s money markets. Swap spreads are suggesting traders are getting nervous that any hiccup in efforts to remove the burden could trigger a shortage on short-term government securities.

    And even more notably, investors are willing to pay more for bills maturing in four weeks instead of five.
  • That’s because they don’t want to be caught empty handed while the Treasury slows debt sales to push its cash balance lower as part of the 2015 pact to suspend the debt ceiling. The spread between the March 9 and March 16 bills may get a “a little more noticeable” as Treasury cuts issuance and provides a “clearer sense of how long bill supply is going to be lower than normal” going into the March 15 deadline, Jefferies economist Thomas Simons said in a phone interview.

PHILLY as a Showcase?




Here are some thoughts that connected like Dots for me


+ President Trump went to school at Wharton (Univ. of Pennsylvania), in University West,

and he must be very familiar with the city


+ He travels over Philly every time he flies from Wash.DC to NYC (Trump Tower), and he must be aware

of the transport advantage of having an express train operating between the cities he knows so well


+ Trump has spoken of improving the life of Urban dwellers, and bring more jobs back to American cities


+ PA state voted for Trump, but the City of Philly did not


I think we could see a situation develop where Trump could make Philly a showcase of what his policies and creative efforts can do for a city


Let's see if this idea emerges in the Months to come. The new focus on allowing higher buildings near transit stations, seems like a good start, and using private money to develop around transit is another positive step that we are seeing


(Later, I found this report from the time of the election):


Donald Trump’s Closing Argument: Reactivate The Philadelphia Navy Yard!

November 8th, 2016 by Tina Casey


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made his closing pitch in a series of campaign stops last night, one of which was the city of Scranton, Pennsylvania. If you were listening closely (disclosure: I was), one new line stood out like a beacon of new light among the now-familiar roll call of complaints about his Democratic opponent, the media, and war refugees. If you guessed that line was “reactivate the Philadelphia Navy Yard!” run right out, buy yourself a cigar, and smoke it down to ash while trying to figure out what he really meant.

Vault 7 Revelations: CIA, etc - the Heart of Darkness?


Wikileaks Unveils 'Vault 7': "The Largest Ever Publication Of Confidential CIA Documents"; Another Snowden Emerges

Mar 7, 2017

WikiLeaks has published what it claims is the largest ever release of confidential documents on the CIA. It includes more than 8,000 documents as part of ‘Vault 7’, a series of leaks on the agency, which have allegedly emerged from the CIA's Center For Cyber Intelligence in Langley, and which can be seen on the org chart below, which Wikileaks also released:


A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”

WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.

Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, "would rock the technology world", the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.”

Another profound revelation is that the CIA can engage in "false flag" cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant. Discussing the CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group, Wikileaks' source notes that it "collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.

As Kim Dotcom summarizes this finding, "CIA uses techniques to make cyber attacks look like they originated from enemy state. It turns DNC/Russia hack allegation by CIA into a JOKE"

"With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from. UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques."

A DASH of Excitement


The Story Behind The Rise Of Dash

by Steven Gleiser | Mar 3, 2017 |


Dash prices have been rising steadily since the end of last year, but February and the first few days of March 2017, saw Dash prices sky-rocket. As a result the cryptocurrency is now the third biggest in terms of market cap, although prices seem to have found a more stable footing over the last 48 hours. As with any meteoric rise in cryptocurrency markets, some have raised suspicions about a pump and dump scheme. There is no doubt that pump and dumps are always a possibility, but Dash doesn’t seem to fit the typical pattern of a pump and dump scheme. The story behind the rise of Dash has many more nuances that should be considered.


Controversy Surrounding Dash

To understand whether or not recent price increases are indeed part of a pump and dump scheme, the first thing analysts need to focus on is the history of the cryptocurrency. In the case of Dash, there are some red flags. Dash critics will point towards the mining issues that the cryptocurrency went through back when it was called Darkcoin. Evan Duffield, the founder of Dash, was able to mine a significant quantity of the cryptocurrency within the first 48 hours of its creation. Some believe that this was due to a glitch in the code that Duffield proceeded to fix. Others think Duffield did this deliberately to enrich himself.



This one year price chart, shows the rise of Dash in cryptocurrency markets. Prices started picking up at fast rates in February. Chart courtesy of coinmarketcap.com.


Ancient History

More than 3 years have passed since that “glitch” made Duffield the richest man in the Dash economy. The cryptocurrency went through a long period of price stagnation, even at a time when bitcoin was seen as vulnerable and Dash presented an alternative. Duffield and other fellow Dash developers cultivated a healthy community around the cryptocurrency. They rebranded the coin and took care of making it as useful as possible, connecting it to existing crypto products and services. It seems their efforts and the characteristics underpinning Dash have finally taken off. The markets seem to be rewarding Dash holders.

Criticism of Dash

Nevertheless that whole “glitch” at the beginning still casts a shadow over the coin. Accusations of “whales” pouring funds into it and generating hype abound and seem to be feeding pump and dump allegations. This coupled with criticism over the centralization of decision making within the Dash network, remain.

Nevertheless, this cryptocurrency seems to work. It looks like it is based on sound principles, and its critics might be over-stretching their arguments. The whole issue with the mining “glitch” is a perfect example. Taking bitcoin as a model – which Dash did, even offering some solutions to privacy, fungibility and transaction speed issues – it would be fair to judge Satoshi Nakamoto the same way that Duffield is judged. After all, Nakamoto mined bitcoin aggressively at the beginning, accumulating as many as 1 million coins. That is worth well over $1 billion USD at the moment. If Duffield did the same, critics should afford him the same treatment they afforded Nakamoto.

Dash Pump and Dump?

Apart from this credibility issue, the whole “whale” argument also seems to be over-stretched. Pump and dump proponents seem to think that Dash is vulnerable to huge investors buying significant amounts of the cryptocurrency to pump its price, generate hype, and then sell all their Dash assets at once.

Theoretically, an asset-class with a $300 million USD market cap – give or take – is susceptible to such schemes. Then again, so are other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin for example. Any “whale” can buy 10% or 15% of all Litecoin as easily as they could buy 30% of all Dash available before the surge and then dump it. Yet somehow it is inconceivable for someone to do that on such a mature network like Litecoin. Dash is also a mature cryptocurrency by now, having been in the markets for over 3 years. It would be much easier and much more profitable and cheaper to design a pump and dump scheme for any other new cryptocurrency than to pump and dump Litecoin or Dash for that matter.

USD, Too Hot to Handle


Jeffrey Snider from Alhambra Partners recently gave an excellent interview on the economic effects of Eurodollars with Eric Townsend from MacroVoices. Eurodollars are USD that are held by banks outside of America.


The Eurodollar market began in the 1960’s. For various reasons such as international trade, sovereign USD depositors fearful of the US government confiscating their assets, and or American banks looking to escape domestic interest rate controls, the Eurodollar market grew. The interest that banks paid each other to borrow USD abroad is the foundation of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). In 1971, Nixon was forced to violate the Bretton Wood’s agreement and suspend the USD’s gold convertibility. The Eurodollar thus became the global reserve currency.

Buttressing its supremacy was the need for oil-exporting countries to recycle their USD into the banking system. The Petrodollar and Eurodollar are one in the same, and the interplay between the two has a significant impact in today’s economic regime.

As the financialisation of the global economy intensified from 1990 to 2008, banks heaped on greater and greater amounts of derivatives exposure and in effect created larger Eurodollar balances. The Global Financial Crisis in 2008 marked the turning point where Eurodollar balances began declining. Jeffrey argues that 2008 was not about US subprime mortgages, but a banking crisis predicated on declining Eurodollar balances.

The Fed’s medicine of quantitative easing is a useless tool when aimed at the Eurodollar market. Apart from USD FX swap lines to other central banks, it is questionable which tools the Fed can legally use to alleviate the USD shortage. To properly address the situation, the Fed would need to become an even larger hedge fund than it currently is today. They would thus need to be active in all manner of FX and interest rate derivatives (e.g. cross currency basis swaps).

Jeffrey concludes with a sober assessment that due to an inability or unwillingness of the Fed and other central banks to address the actual problem, we could be left with a stagnant global economy for decades much like Japan. However unlike Japan, most nations’ subjects won’t sit by and calmly watch hentai porn while their economic situation progressively worsens.


What is of interest to Bitcoin traders is how this Eurodollar shortage affects China. Jeffrey spells it out succinctly:

Currency exchange rates don’t tell the price of any currency, rather they show us a measurement of eurodollar flow and flexibility. As CNY appreciated before and after 2008, not during the crisis, it was as ‘dollars’ flowed in such that they had to be locked up in higher bank reserve requirements. Conversely, since 2013, as CNY ‘devalues’ as ‘dollars’ disappear leaving the PBOC to either supply them itself or allow banks greater RMB flexibility through lower RRR.

I experienced a Eureka moment after reading and rereading this passage. Using the two charts below, he puts all the pieces together.



The PBOC’s balance sheet peaked in 2013 alongside the value of the Yuan. State owned enterprises (SOE) effectively arb’d the PBOC. They borrowed dollars cheaply offshore, and then imported them into China to take advantage of the higher domestic interest rates. This caused the CNY to appreciate.

Large Eurodollar inflows masked as CNY would have been bigly inflationary. Therefore the PBOC raised rates through the Reserve Ratio Requirement. However, as rates rose further it became even more profitable to attempt to bring Eurodollars onshore.

Currency appreciation was part of the government’s plans, but too severe an upward movement would be detrimental to exporters. A smooth appreciation required the PBOC to sell Yuan and purchase dollars. These dollars were then converted into US Treasuries. That is why their balance sheet rose as the currency appreciated.

Far from a monolithic Party that cooperates harmoniously for the mutual benefit of all comrades, factions of the Chinese government (SOEs) were undermining the financial health of the Middle Kingdom.

The dollar and rates began rising in 2013, dollars began flowing out of China. The short position needed to be covered. As the hot money flowed the other direction, the PBOC had to sell down reserves and decrease interest rates to help the Banks replace the lost deposits. The PBOC in the face of rising domestic inflation continues to lower the RRR; the banks are toast otherwise.

The faster and larger the US rate normalisation and currency appreciation, the larger the short squeeze.

March Is Green Lit

Grandma Yellen during various interviews and communiques proclaimed that a March rate hike is on the table. A hike so soon after December would prove the Fed is deadly serious about normalising rates. It would also spoil the PBOC’s plans for a calm period before the October National Congress...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested Thursday that he would be open to the appointment of an outside counsel to review actions taken by the Justice Department during the Obama administration.

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Sessions in an interview if the new attorney general would consider designating an outside counsel "not connected to politics" to take a second look at Justice Department actions that provoked Republican ire in the last eight years. Those include the Fast and Furious gun scandal and the decisions against bringing criminal charges over Hillary Clinton's email practices or the Internal Revenue Service's treatment of conservative groups.

Hewitt contended during his radio interview that the department had become "highly politicized" in the Obama administration and floated the idea of a special review by an attorney with the authority to bring criminal charges and "just generally to look at how the Department of Justice operated."

Sessions was noncommittal but left the door open, saying he would do everything he could to "restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice."

. . .


During the campaign, President Donald Trump said he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton, though he expressed ambivalence about that idea after he won the election.

It's not clear how serious Sessions was about the idea of a special counsel to investigate past Justice Department decisions, or how such an undertaking might work.
