Is There A Little-Known "X-Date" For The Dollar Debt Bomb?

Posted by Dirk Watters on

China is expected to launch its first yuan-denominated oil contracts next month, and that will mark the beginning "X-Date" for the dollar kill switch. Summary: The US dollar enjoys a special privilege in the world due to its dominance in the global oil trade. The agreement that created this dominance was predicated on the United States being the largest oil importer in the world, which is no longer the case. China is rolling out a new gold-backed yuan oil contract next month as part of its attempt to replace the US dollar's dominance. If the dollar loses its privileged status,...

Did The FED Rig The Financial Markets?

Posted by Dirk Watters on

For many decades, the Federal Reserve has rigged the bond market by its purchases of mortgage backed securities. And for about a century, central banks have set interest rates (mainly to stabilize their currency's exchange rate) with collateral effects on securities prices. It appears that in May 2010, August 2015, January/February 2016, and currently in February 2018 the Fed is rigging the stock market by purchasing S&P equity index futures in order to arrest stock market declines driven by fundamentals, and to push prices back up in keeping with a decade of money creation.

Can a man with a checkered past be trusted to lead the Fed? Powell would be the first Fed Chairman in over 30 years without a degree in economics. His formal training is in law. Apparently, economists are not to be trusted. Newsflash: Neither are liberals, especially "moderate" ones. Who is Jerome Powell?  Powell may not be an economist, but he certainly knows his way around an investment bank! Before being picked by Obama in 2012 to be a Fed governor, he made a fortune with the Carlyle group, the world's largest private equity firm. These two facts pose big problems!...

She opened with a soft fib about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general when she offered that cryptocurrencies may pose a challenge to “in the future” (whenever that is or might be). But, like any good globalist politician, she speaks several languages fluently, out of both sides of her mouth… Lagardes’ BIG LIE: “For now,...
