Indications: U.S. stock futures fall further after data

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

By Kate Gibson and Barbara Kollmeyer, MarketWatch

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) â€" U.S. stock-market futures fell further Thursday after data showing the economy weakened in the first quarter and jobless claims topping 400,000 for another week.

The Commerce Department said gross domestic product rose at a 1.8% annual rate between January and March, slower than the 3.1%-pace in the prior quarter. Separately, the Labor Department said those filing initial claims for jobless benefits rose 25,000 to 429,000 last week.

Stock futures were already lower amid a crush of earnings results as investors paused for breath after the prior two-day rally.

Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average /quotes/comstock/21b!f:dj\m11 DJM11 +0.06%   fell 20 points to 12,621, while futures for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index /quotes/comstock/21m!f:sp\m11 SPM11 +0.04%   slipped 2.4 points to 1,348.6. Futures for the Nasdaq 100 /quotes/comstock/21m!f:nd\m11 NDM11 -0.03%   shed 4.75 points to 2,404.25.

Bernanke: QE2 is not a panacea

Ben Bernanke says the Federal Reserve doesn't expect the end of QE2 to have a significant market impact, and that quantitative easing has been successful, but it was never intended as a cure-all.

On Wednesday, the Dow /quotes/comstock/10w!i:dji/delayed DJIA +0.57%  rose 0.8% to close at 12,690.96, its highest since May 20, 2008. The Nasdaq Composite /quotes/comstock/10y!i:comp COMP +0.09% knocked out a 2007 closing high to finish at its best level since Dec. 12, 2000.

Speaking at the Federal Reserve’s first post-statement press conference Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank will maintain its easy monetary policy and isn’t mulling any quick policy moves to fight higher inflation or slower growth.

“I think to some extent Bernanke is walking a tightrope, and this time he managed to stay on the rope,” but he could face problems down the road, said Steen Jakobsen, chief economist at Saxo Bank.

For now, Jakobsen said he doesn’t see anything stopping the S&P 500 /quotes/comstock/21z!i1:in\x SPX +0.36%  from moving to 1,385, then 1,400, except the start of a true dollar crisis.

“If it moves from orderly to disorderly, we could have an equity impact” and a problem for the Fed, he said.

The dollar continued to lose ground in Asian and European trading hours, with the dollar index /quotes/comstock/11j!i:dxy0 DXY -0.0068%  lately off to 73.16. The dollar index measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies.

Gold prices continued to gain on back of dollar weakness, with June futures /quotes/comstock/21e!f:gc\m11 GCM11 +0.31%  up $14.50 to $1,531.60 an ounce on Nymex.

The corporate schedule was full, with a flood of earnings results and a deal announced ahead of the open. Exelon Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!exc/quotes/nls/exc EXC +1.66%  will acquire Constellation Energy Group Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!ceg/quotes/nls/ceg CEG +5.71%  in a stock deal valued at about $7.9 billion, the companies said in a statement.

Shares of Akamai Technologies Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!akam/quotes/nls/akam AKAM -14.74%  sank in preopen trading. The company said late Wednesday that first-quarter profit rose almost 24%, but its second-quarter outlook fell short of Wall Street estimates.

Shares of Sprint Nextel Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!s/quotes/nls/s S +6.68%  rose in premarket trading after the wireless company reported a first-quarter loss of 15 cents a share.

Shares of Aetna Inc. /quotes/comstock/13*!aet/quotes/nls/aet AET +4.12%  gained before the bell, after announcing a 4% increase in first-quarter profit and said it will buy Prodigy Health Group, a third-party administrator of self-funded health plans, for $600 million.

Shares of Dow Chemical Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!dow/quotes/nls/dow DOW +1.98%  added in the premarket after the company reported a higher first-quarter profit.

U.S.-listed shares of Deutsche Bank AG /quotes/comstock/13*!db/quotes/nls/db DB +5.29%   /quotes/comstock/11e!fdbk DE:DBK +5.06%  climbed in premarket trade after the company said its first-quarter profit rose 17%, helped by a string of acquisitions. Read about Deutsche Bank’s results.

But U.S.-listed shares of SAP AG /quotes/comstock/13*!sap/quotes/nls/sap SAP -6.94%   /quotes/comstock/11e!fsap DE:SAP -6.50%  tumbled in preopen trading after the German software group posted a 4% increase in net profit, but missed analysts’ forecasts.

After the close of markets, Microsoft Corp. /quotes/comstock/15*!msft/quotes/nls/msft MSFT +1.25% is due to report its quarterly results.

In overseas markets, European stocks traded higher, supported by well-received corporate updates from Deutsche Bank, Banco Santander /quotes/comstock/13*!std/quotes/nls/std STD +2.63%   /quotes/comstock/06x!e:san ES:SAN +1.49%  and Bayer AG /quotes/comstock/11e!fbayn DE:BAYN +2.21% . Read about Europe markets.

Stocks jumped in Tokyo, but Shanghai and Hong Kong markets fell. Read about Asia markets.

No Buyers for Treasuries or Toxic Waste

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

We believe there will be something similar to a QE3 by another name and the Fed will probably have to create some $2.5 trillion to buy Treasuries, Agencies, and toxic waste and perhaps inject funds into the economy. Japan certainly won’t be a buyer and probably will be a seller. China has indicated that they won’t be purchasers in the future either. The question also arises concerning the continued purchase of these securities by countries in the oil producing Gulf States, which are in turmoil. The three countries make up 45% of Treasury purchases. As we pointed out in previous issues the second half of 2011 should be monstrous. Even if the fed buys all the Treasury and Agency bonds they’ll still have to deal with a lower dollar and high inflation. Then there is high unemployment and raging gold and silver prices. There is also the question of US debt, federal, state and municipal debt, along with wars in the Middle East and North Africa. How many US Treasuries will Japan have to sell and how deeply will its slowdown effect American industry? As you can see America has much to contemplate.

The creation of monetary inflation will last at least two more years. Its end will only come when the Fed takes its foot off of the pedal. Like almost zero interest rates this policy cannot be allowed to stop. The system cannot function without it. The whole concept of throwing money at a problem simply doesn’t work and the elitists know this only too well.

Monetary and fiscal creations are not the only mistakes being made by the Fed and our Congress. US and world markets are being subjected to non-stop manipulation. This corruption has destroyed all free markets. Stock and bond markets are supported and gold, silver and commodities attacked. Fortunately markets now recognize what the elitists are up too and each time they interfere they lose a little more power. It points up that a criminal syndicate is running our country. These tactics are used to extend the looting period allowing further harvesting of elicit profits. The US and many other nations have been allowed to live beyond their means for many years and that condition is being brought to a conclusion. This, of course, is very true of the US due to the dollar being the world’s reserve currency. That is changing, as nations want this unfair advantage ended, especially in view of the fact that the American government and financial community have so abused their priv ilege.

The profits of the military industrial complex continue to flourish as we have war after war. We notice that both parties are willing to cut spending on Social Security and Medicare, but they refuse to cut military spending, the most expensive item on the budget at 26%. Our government has billions for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, the FHA, the FICA and the worthless SEC and CFTC, but no cuts for the average American.

As zero interest rates rule one form or another of money and credit creation continues as it has for the past 11 years. The game is the same, it is just the name has changed. The process of wealth destruction is still in progress and only the select few get to keep their ill-begotten riches. The Fed’s balance sheet over the next 1-1/2 years should reach over $5 trillion.

On this process real interest rates will creep higher, toxic securitized mortgage bonds will fall lower, as the housing market sinks to new lows not able to break out of its death spiral.

We find it of great interest but not surprising that the $5 trillion mortgage bond fraud, after three years, has no prosecutions, or even a civil suit. This smacks of evidence that the Fed made some kind of sub-rosa deal with bond buyers, particularly in Europe, to cover their losses. In addition, we believe the Treasury and the SEC were in on the criminal fraud.

We see Warren Buffett doing the same thing that the Chinese are doing and that is dumping US dollars. He has been going to Asia and India to buy companies. This is how they both bet against the dollar. Buffett even says, “I would recommend against buying long-term fixed-dollar investments.” He says over the next 20 years the dollar will lose its value. This is also what we have been preaching over the past 11 years, and that the preferred investment should be gold and silver coins, bullion and shares. Professionals are concerned about the trade deficit and the balance of payment’s deficit, along with the continual creation of money and credit by the Fed. Then there is the horrible budget deficit and the rampant inflation the government continues to lie about.

Even PIMCO, as we all now know, has sold US Treasuries and even shorted them in anticipation of higher real interest rates. Bill Gross, CEO, calls the US a serial abuser of finance deficits with a ridiculous budget. He, like many others, has lost faith in the Fed and the government to run a proper government fiscal and monetary policy. Bill called it the new normal. We call it the road to fiscal and monetary perdition. Confidence is gone and well it should be. We lost confidence in 1960; it obviously takes others longer.

In our minds there is no question the dollar is going lower, perhaps 40% or 50% lower versus other currencies in general. In just the last 15 years it is 50% lower. In the last 40 years it is 98% lower. At this juncture it is our opinion that the Treasury and the Fed want the dollar lower in order to become more competitive. If they are going to do that they had best end their 60% plus reliance on foreign oil and start pumping America’s vast oil and gas reserves. They will also have to end free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing in order to bring those 430,000 firms that have moved to foreign countries.

As the dollar falls against other currencies, all currencies continue to fall versus gold and silver. Over the past 11 years, annually, nine major currencies have fallen more than 20% on average versus gold and silver. If the dollar over the next several years were to lose its status a world reserve currency costs for foreign goods would rise exponentially. The only reason the dollar isn’t lower is that many other currencies have the same problems the dollar has in varying degrees. The dollar is very weak versus the euro at $1.46. Yet, the eurozone countries are exploding in debt and six of their members are candidates for insolvency. Japan, the UK, and parts of Europe have the same problems the US has - a hangover from using the Keynesian economic model. As a result of this misguided policy in ten years federal debt will be close to $20 trillion, up 75% from today. Is that anyway to fiscally run a country? The answer is obviously not. This is why the Fed has to buy 80% of Treasury and Agencies and it is why there is no end in sight to America’s fiscal and monetary problems. Just about everything is being done incorrectly, which tells us again this has been done deliberately in order to bring the US, UK and Europe to their knees economically in order to force the people in these countries to accept World Government. The experiment again is not going to work and chaos and war will again envelop the world. You had best be prepared.

How can investors be positive about dollar denominated investments, when S&P warns government that they had best get their financial house in order or they will lose their AAA rating. They placed the US outlook as negative. The US has to address medium and long-term budgetary problems over the next two years and if they don’t the rating will fall and the US will no longer be the world’s reserve currency. Monetary policy cannot continue to augment, aid and abet such a profligate fiscal policy, which can easily be changed by cutting military spending by 50% to 13% of the budget. That is not easy to do with the military-industrial complex, Wall Street and banking running the country. Their greed knows no end.

We just saw over the past three years a credit crisis and a crisis of confidence for both the government and private debt sectors, which still hasn’t been permanently addressed. Many major financial firms are still insolvent and carrying two sets of books. If you did that you would end up in jail.

The Fed has become a liability in its quest to protect its owners, the banks, and not the overall economy. It is instrumental in destroying debt quality and continues to destabilize the monetary base. There is no effort to cut military spending only Social Security and Medicare, which retirees and future retirees paid for, but those funds were stolen over the years.

How does any Fed call allowing mortgage debt to expand by $8 trillion or by 115% over six years? They the banks and brokerage houses knew exactly what they were doing and what the consequences would be. Banks employed leverage of 70 to 1 when 9 to 1 was normal and it is still 40 to 1. Obviously the bankers have learned nothing from their failures. In addition, besides us, how could rating agencies and professionals not recognize a Ponzi scheme? That is because S&P, Moody’s and Fitch were part of the criminal enterprise. How could a credit system double debt, most of it was of very poor quality and expect that there would be no fall out? They knew the consequences and did it anyway. In the aftermath there has been no civil litigation and no criminal prosecutions. Why is this? It is because these criminals have bought most of Congress and the court system.

Indications: U.S. stock futures trim rise after jobless claims

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

By Kate Gibson and Polya Lesova, MarketWatch

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) â€" U.S. stock-index futures trimmed Thursday gains after the government reported a second consecutive week where initial jobless claims topped 400,000.

“While the overall trend in claims is decidedly downward, there has clearly been an uptick of late,” noted Dan Greenhaus, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak, in an email after the Labor Department reported the number of people submitting their initial filings for state unemployment benefits fell 13,000 to 403,000 last week.

Up about 40 points before the data, futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average /quotes/comstock/21b!f:dj\m11 DJM11 +0.31%  were lately up 29 points at 12,425.

Shares of Apple Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!aapl/quotes/nls/aapl AAPL +2.42%  rose 4.2% in premarket trade after the firm late Wednesday reported a 95% surge in quarterly earnings, exceeding Wall Street’s expectations.

Apple results soar, unhurt by Japan

Apple's earnings rose sharply thanks to strong iPhone sales, and the company played down concerns about Japan's impact on its supplies, its recent lawsuit against Samsung and CEO Steve Jobs's medical leave.

Futures on the technology-focused Nasdaq 100 /quotes/comstock/21m!f:nd\m11 NDM11 +0.87%  rose 19.25 points to 2,374.25.

Futures on the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index /quotes/comstock/21m!f:sp\m11 SPM11 +0.20%  advanced 4.5 points to 1,332.8.

The gains for stock futures come after a strong session for Wall Street on Wednesday. The blue-chip Dow industrials /quotes/comstock/10w!i:dji/delayed DJIA +0.42%  rallied 1.5% as investors’ mood was buoyed by Intel Corp.’s /quotes/comstock/15*!intc/quotes/nls/intc INTC +0.23%  earnings report.

Also Thursday, McDonald’s Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!mcd/quotes/nls/mcd MCD -1.90%   reported better-than-expected quarterly profit after the fast-food chain tallied March sales that exceeded expectations. Its shares fell 0.6% in the premarket, however.

Industrial conglomerate General Electric Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!ge/quotes/nls/ge GE -2.21%  said /quotes/comstock/13*!ge/quotes/nls/ge GE -2.21% first-quarter net profit rose to $3.43 billion from $1.95 billion in the same period a year ago. GE also increased its dividend, as the firm’s shares rallied 4.2% in preopen trade.

Also higher, shares of mobile-phone maker Nokia Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!nok/quotes/nls/nok NOK +0.47%   /quotes/comstock/64h!e3:o-nok1v-eur FI:NOK1V +0.42%  rose 4% after its earnings were well received by investors.

In corporate news, British oil group BP PLC /quotes/comstock/13*!bp/quotes/nls/bp BP +0.26%   /quotes/comstock/23s!a:bp. UK:BP 0.00%  said it’s suing Halliburton Co. /quotes/comstock/13*!hal/quotes/nls/hal HAL +1.61%  , Transocean Ltd. /quotes/comstock/13*!rig/quotes/nls/rig RIG 0.00%   /quotes/comstock/06p!rign CH:RIGN -2.22%  and Cameron International Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!cam/quotes/nls/cam CAM -0.64%  over their roles in the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year.

In the commodity markets, gold futures /quotes/comstock/21e!f:gc\j11 GCJ11 +0.33%  rose $7.30 to $1,505.60 an ounce in electronic trading on Globex.

Crude-oil futures /quotes/comstock/21n!f:cl\m11 CLM11 +0.75%  gained 28 cents to $111.73 a barrel.

The Fed Is Not There To Solve Your Problem

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

Many banks are insolvent, yet are allowed to stay in business. Being allowed to keep two sets of books is obscuring their real estate loan problems. This is the shadow inventory you sometimes hear about. Those millions of homes “that exist, but they don’t.” They presently admit to owning some 1 million homes they cannot sell, which is almost 25% higher than last year. If you put everything together you could be looking at an 8-year supply. Making matters worse lenders are holding homes on the books at values 40% higher than what they are worth. This is very similar to what is going on in Spain presently. We’ll say this one more time. Most major banks and some middle tier and small institutions are broke and you are being lied to regarding their condition.

Distressed home sales make up about 50% of all sales and they are sold at rock bottom prices, which drives down the value of all homes. This condition could last another ten years. In California and Nevada such sales are some 70% of sales. This inventory will continue to suppress prices for some time to come, so do not even think about buying a home. Those lower foreclosure figures are a mirage caused by legal action against lenders. Those foreclosure numbers will grow higher soon, because these criminals are cutting a deal to pay fines, so no one goes to jail. Only in America. That foreclosure activity could come back slowly due to major changes in the industry.

As foreclosures pick up following a deal with the government the shadow inventory will build, banks will sell more homes, prices will fall further, losses to the banks will grow and the banks inadequate loan loss reserves will become evident. Then there are the ongoing lawsuits against the banks and their creation known as MERS, which has no further legal standing. We could see millions of mortgages being cancelled that is unless the crooks in Congress pass a forgiveness bill to relieve the banks of their fraud. The bottom line is many more banks are going under and some will be major banks.

As we predicted in June of 2005 that the housing market would crash we also predicted a 10 to 40 year fall and consolidation in housing. Most people can reflect on these past six years, but cannot perceive the future for housing. Market activity has fallen by almost 1/3rd, as housing prices fell ever lower. Although we do not see an increase in official interest rates we can easily see mortgages at 5-5/8% by the end of the year and 6-1/2% at the end of 2012. Lenders are going to have to demand 10% to 20% down. That will not only further decrease sales volume, but it will further depress prices. These rates may seem high, but inflation will be between 14% and 30% over that 1-1/2 to 2 year span.

Since 2006 house prices are down 32% and over the next year they will probably fall close to 40% from their highs. The Fed may have temporarily saved banking and Wall Street, but little has been done to solve the unemployment problem. If you have no job you cannot buy a house, not with real unemployment at 22%. As a result new home sales fell 28% in February, as their inventories rose to 8.9-month’s sales. Our question is with such a tremendous home inventory overhang, why are builders building more homes, some 550,000 a year. They have to be dumber than rocks. Existing houses for sale rise every day plus there are more than a million in the foreclosure crisis. House prices still have to hit bottom and that is probably 30% lower and probably 3 years away. It is hard to get real estate going with unemployment at 20% and forced part-time employment at 10 million workers. Deceptive government statistics can only hold back reality for so long. People are finally seeing the t ruth of what unemployment and under-employment really are. Labor deterioration is accompanied by gas and food inflation. People at work paying steeply higher prices are in no position to buy a home. Feeding the family comes first. As a result of forced Fed policies we also have a falling dollar that increases prices for imported goods.

If all this wasn’t bad enough municipalities and states are in serious financial trouble. Their working force makes up 15% of overall employment and 70% of costs. That means to cut costs you lay people off first. That increases unemployment and disqualifies future homebuyers and puts more underwater homes into foreclosure, which compounds lenders’ losses. Do not underestimate these layoffs, because they will have a strong negative affect on the overall economy. This year was really the beginning of these municipal and state layoffs. Looming in the shadows is the possibility of hundreds of municipal bankruptcies; 35 states are in the same position with no end in sight. Very few people really understand how serious the overall situation really is. These events take a terrible toll on consumer confidence. These were supposed to be lifetime jobs. What happens when pension checks stop due to bankruptcy? That has to slow the economy. 90% of state and local costs are for edu cation. That means more layoffs and doubling class sizes to 40 children. Children are learning very little in school and their success is held down by the quality of students. It will be pandemonium with giant class sizes and many of the best teachers will resign.

The government supplies 35% of wages. Food stamps are helping to feed 44 million Americans. Government wants to cut Social Security, which people have paid into, but is erroneously allowing thousands in under disability. Medicare is a shamble, and Medicare is worse. In spite of the current problems 75% of Americans do not support cuts to Medicare and Social Security. In spite of that, if Wall Street and banking want less benefits, that is what Americans will get. America is accelerating to a welfare state.

Corporate America is in a dilemma. They are facing higher costs for petroleum products and food. This affects profits, if not passed on, business will eventually have to pass these costs on. In that environment there can be little hiring and little if any job growth. If they hold back price increases when increases do come they’ll be very large.

Each day statements from the Fed get more bizarre. One of the latest ones is the Fed has to be accommodative because the central bank remains blow its targets for inflation and employment. Inflation is somewhat high and employment is dreadful.

In the meantime China is sitting on more than $3 trillion in foreign exchange. Reserves have gained almost $600 billion over the past nine months or 28%. That trade surplus is now falling. The first quarter is a good example, up just under $200 billion versus year-on-year of $13 billion.

Everyone seems to think things are just great in China. That is not the case at all. China has done what most other countries have done and that is excessively expand its employment of money and credit. We have spoken of this before, but as usual few were listening. Most experts seem to be blind to the market distortions caused by the excessive creation of money and credit. Sometimes China’s actions make us think that perhaps they are taking orders from Washington. Be as it may, if they are not, they have sure chosen the wrong model.

As a result China’s inflated growth was 9.7% in the first quarter. March exports rose almost 36% yoy, as imports grew 27.3%. Retail sales were up more than 17%. Residential real estate prices rose 26% yoy, as new home construction rose 20%. We hardly call this restraint, as March credit rose 16%. M2 rose 16.6%. Loans last year rose 140%. As a result food costs rose almost 12%. Inflation varies from province to province. In some it is officially 5% in others 15%, when in reality it is from 10% to 35%. This unrestrained monetary and fiscal policy is very in tune with what is being done in Washington, London and in parts of the EU. This has all been created to create faux prosperity. It shouldn’t be surprising that the Chinese are buying gold and silver in copious amounts, not only to dump dollars, but also to lighten up on their own domestic currency holdings. That is a double effect no one seems to talk about. What else would one expect when official inflation is 9% an d real inflation is double that. As long as this continues gold and silver purchases will boom, especially when government encourages their purchase. What China is experiencing now is that no matter how much they tighten it doesn’t do any good. China has run away inflation As inflation grows the purchase of commodities will grow as it has in the past, as China lends its $3 trillion getting little in return. The bottom line is that China as well as the US is at the heart of global hot money flows. We wonder how long it will be before China and other BRIC nations, which include Brazil, India, Russia and India, decide to finally pull the plug on the US dollar? Dollar reserves continue to fall as part of the foreign exchange holdings of all nations.

China like the US and a number of other nations are in a box and they can’t get out. On the other side if they shut off money and credit expansion they’ll lose control and have 30 million unemployed at their throats. Eventual destabilization has to become reality. China cannot handle that inflow of dollars and other currencies. Internally they also have wage inflation as well as price inflation, a very nasty, uncontrollable combination. As an aside, China may produce $200 billion to buy Japanese bonds to help Japan fund the reconstruction caused by their earthquakes. The wage price spiral lives in China and it is worsening. In varying degrees inflation is being exported worldwide by not only the US, but by China and many other nations. There is a distinct upward bias in inflation worldwide and it is gaining momentum. The era of cheap labor is behind us as inflation infects all economies. In the US March import prices rose almost 10% yoy with the producer price index u p almost 6%. Those numbers are growing monthly. The big question for inflation and corporate profits is will the cost increases be absorbed to keep their client base or will it in part or totally be passed on to the purchaser? Probably a combination of both, which means falling corporate profits worldwide. We believe the issuance of money and credit will increase to keep the world economy from collapsing and inflation will continue to grow, eventually ending in hyperinflation a few years hence. It is the only game governments know and you can be assured they play it again, as they have in the past. There is nothing transitory about what is going on inflation-wise, and policy makers all know this. All they are doing is kicking the can down the road to buy time, hoping hope against hope, somehow there will be a miracle. The only solution they have, like their predecessors, is to have another war. A 50% reduction in world population would suit them just fine. What we are seeing has been in the works for years by our master planners, who create these situations to maintain control. A combination of falling currencies versus gold and silver for the last 11 years by more than 20% should be a lesson for those who want to safely invest their wealth. As we have said for many years investing in gold and silver shares, coins and bullion is a lock. An un-losable bet that has been a reality for 11 years. Soon China and other dollar holders will almost totally back away from the US debt market, and that is already in process. The Fed is currently buying 83% of Treasury and Agency debt. How can anything be more inflationary? This process can continue for the next several years and those who believe they are smarter than everybody else will find out they are not. We are breathing down their necks via talk radio, the Internet and by purchasing gold and silver related assets. The closer we get the more mistakes they’ll make and the easier they will be to defe at. This is one game we are going to win and the elitists already know that.

At the moment foreigners and others are buying about 17% of Treasury and Agency bonds. The privately owned Federal Reserve is purchasing the remainder. That means billions of dollars are being created out of thin air daily. Although part of the inflation created by such moves is exported to foreign countries, much of that inflation is being distributed across the US economy. This massive monetization of dollars in turn puts ever-greater downward pressure on the dollar. Even America’s private sector, which for some time picked up some 30% of these bills, notes and bonds, has allowed their purchases to slow to a trickle. These actions, which the Fed was forced to embark upon 2-1/2 years ago, are still in force and once begun will be impossible to stop. There simply are no buyers unless fiscal costs are cut, taxes are raised and interest rates move higher. Who wants to buy a 10-year T-note yielding 3.50% when real inflation is 8.5%? That is a guaranteed loss of 5%, plus any fall in the value of the dollar. This dilemma has been obvious to bond buyer PIMCO, which no longer owns Treasury or Agency bonds.

Since August 15, 1971 the dollar has lost 98% of its purchasing power and now in each family there has to be two breadwinners, because one no longer suffices. Over those almost 40 years bondholders have been losers, which proves the point that without gold backing a world reserve currency cannot work. As a result sovereign nations are buying gold. China and Russia buy domestically produced gold as well as being buyers in the marketplace. A number of other nations have been buyers. Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Iran, India and a host of smaller countries. China has been aggressively trying to get their citizens to buy gold and silver and it has worked in a big way. The population is not only dumping dollars, but due to high local inflation they are dumping their own domestic currency as well, something the government did not anticipate. China wants the yuan to be the next world’s reserve currency and they know the only way that can happen is to have gold backing. Whatever is chosen to be the world reserve currency it is obvious that it will have to be gold backed. China in anticipation wants to settle foreign transactions with the yuan not the US dollar by the end of the year. As China accumulates gold the US Treasury and the Fed will do everything possible to manipulate gold, silver and share prices lower. In that process the dollar slides lower versus other major currencies and gold and silver.

Nobody is Smarter Than The Markets

Stock Assault 2.0 - Artificial Intelligence Stock Market Software

Neither government nor anyone is smarter than the markets. As they say the trend is your friend. All you have to do is get on for the ride. It’s really as simple as that. The trick is picking the trend. We were fortunate enough to pick gold and silver in June of 2000. We went long and stayed long all those years only occasionally making a trade. Every time there was a correction we recommended further purchases.

It has been unfortunate that the US government, other central banks, including the Federal Reserve, chose to attempt to manipulate those markets. They did retard the progress of these two metals and they are still doing so, but in the end they will fail, because the markets are far bigger than they are and the collective wisdom of investors will always triumph over the narrow desires of petty elitists.

There certainly are two sides to every market. On one side you have the vested interests, who generally do not really understand the functions of gold and silver historically, they’ll never understand and don’t really care to understand. This might be called the establishment viewpoint. In fact the entrenchment is so deep that people who believe in gold and silver are scorned and some brokerage houses won’t even allow trades in gold and silver shares, coins and bullion. We ran into this problem as long ago as the early 1960s. In fact it forced us to become a principal of a firm as long ago as 1968. The rise of gold and silver threatens the status quo. If you see the values of gold and silver you threaten the fiat system and how it fleeces the investors.

Then we have those who should know better who attempt to out guess the precious metals market and in that process prove to be consistently wrong costing their subscribers and others losses and as important lost opportunities. All to often it is the pursuit of fame and challenging a market that cannot be challenged. Usually unfortunate decisions are due to a lack of knowledge or a penchant to sensationalize in order to capitalize. This often leads to some pretty dumb decisions. Over the last $500 move in gold, and $30.00 move in silver we have seen 96% of letter writers, economists and analysts render wrong decisions. We do not find that surprising, because most of them have never been in the belly of the beast nor do they know history, particularly economic and financial history.

For many years we have faced the deliberate and gradual destruction of our economic and financial system by those who want to be mega-rich and to implement world government. The global monetary system is being deliberately imploded, particularly in the US, UK and Europe, the regions of great success over the past 1,000 years. Creating and forcing an edge does not work. Such opportunities come naturally if you are doing the right thing and understand the history and reasons why things are happening the way they are. There is a big picture, but you have to understand all the facets that make the picture complete. Those who wallow in mediocrity can and do cost investors lots of money and lost opportunities.

Gold and silver are intimately intertwined in our lives as a standard and store of value, but there are those who have told us over the centuries that fiat money is better. History has proven over and over that is not true. Such thinking has destroyed many civilizations.

As we write we are at the end of another week of record prices for gold and silver. Every day we think of what could have been already and will eventually be. Yes, we predicted these prices long ago, but we never envisioned the actions by central banks and particularly the US government to destroy gold and silver markets. We knew they’d be unsuccessful, but 20 years of figuring was such a terrible waste of human energy. In August of 1988 we wrote about market manipulation in “Bull & Bear” and everyone thought we were insane. We proved to be right and at that time we didn’t even know there was an Executive Order called, “The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.” This instrument in the misuse of power has been used by Wall Street, banking and government to destroy our free markets and will continue to do so, as long as we allow it to enrich the financial interests that for so long have controlled our nation.

We are seeing and have been seeing for years a flight from currencies and particularly a flight from the US dollar into gold and silver. That will continue as long as currencies remain fiat. Secret meetings are being held at this very moment by elitists to give the world another bogus fiat currency, as a world reserve currency.

In reference to real money the silver trap JPMorgan Chase and HSBC have been trapped in is in all probably coming to a close. We see default somewhere between $48.00 and $60.00. The losses could be as high as $150 billion. No one knows how settlement will be carried out. There could be total default, partial default or the government could step in and supply the capital for a bailout. We do not know whether Congress or the people, will sit still for another bailout. Coming on the heels of other monetizing bailouts there could be real trouble over this monetization. JPM and HSBC could say they were just taking orders from the Fed and the Treasury and things went bad. They did this in the lawsuit a number of years ago brought by Blanchard where a secret deal was made to shut Blanchard up. It included not only JPM, but the Illuminist controlled Barrick Gold as well. If any of the three avenues of escape are used the result will be a devastating blow to the dollar.

There is no question that there is an acute silver shortage, so much so that rather than taking delivery of silver, that sellers such as JPM and HSBC don’t have, that bonuses from 25% to 80% are being offered. There is no question in our minds that the Fed has been behind all this and that is why there could be some kind of government bailout. You can see why Rep. Ron Paul and Senator Rand Paul want to audit and investigate the Fed. Is it any wonder the US dollar is falling and all currencies are rising versus the dollar, even the Mexican peso. Adding insult to injury the US created civil war in Libya and it is not going well. NATO forces are so inept that they are bombing the wrong troops. Then again we wouldn’t expect anything less then FUBAR. As a result the other Arab allies of the US, the petro dollar strongholds, are having second thoughts about the US and the dollar. They are buying gold, silver, commodities and of all things euros, in spite of Europe and the e uro zones horrible financial condition. If the oil producing nations in the Middle East start using other currencies such as the euro for selling oil the dollar and the US will be in a world of hurt.

As silver breaks out to new highs gold does as well. Gold’s breakout is no surprise. The war over the last two years between gold and the dollar, as world reserve currency, has been won hands down by gold. Gold is now getting strength from the perception, that inflation is higher than official sources care to admit and that inflation is gaining upward momentum. The situation in the silver market and its unbelievable strength also has to be helping gold on the upside. Additional assistance is coming from the newsletter writers where the overwhelming majority has been telling readers to sell gold and silver or wait for a correction that never comes. From a contrarian viewpoint this is very bullish, because these nitwits are trying to sell subscriptions, have been wrong every year for five years. It is no wonder we are getting nasty reports of newsletters renewing subscriptions with a credit card on file when the subscriber does not want to renew. The subscribers do not hav e a phone number to call and when they email the box is always full. If any of you subscribers have experienced this let us know the details. If it persists we will start publishing the names of the fraudsters. Desperate people do desperate things.

Incidentally, if cover or default does not occur in silver there will be a quick explosion to $100.00. We will see just how insane these elitists really are. Such an event would quickly take gold to $2,400 to $3,000 an ounce. The physical market will lead the way and eventually the real market. Futures, options, derivatives and ETFs will become a non-factor due to corruption and probably stop trading unable to satisfy contracts. If that is allowed to happen gold and silver would fully assert themselves as the only real money, particularly gold. All currencies would visibly be compared to gold, as would inflation and finely people would have a real guideline of value. The faith and reliability of the Fed would be shunted to the background as Congress finally takes a hard look at what the Fed has been up to for so long. Major changes should be on the way, because finally it will be recognized that the Fed had created a systemic collapse of the monetary system that has affect ed the entire world. It will be recognized the Fed destroyed the financial system, but in that process supplied resources to keep insolvent institutions afloat, some of which just happened to own the Fed. Until those institutions are allowed to go bankrupt there can be no recovery. The system has to be purged. On the other hand for now the Fed has plans to continue quantitative easing and it still remains to be seen if Congress is serious about budgetary reductions. As long as the status quo remains in tack gold and silver will rise.

Gold and silver have again broken out to new higher ground. We believe these successes are being caused by a continued flight to quality that has been going on for 11 years. As we have said previously gold has proven over the past two years that it is the only international currency. Silver in shorter supply certainly in part is reflecting the JPM and HSBC positions. The new expediting factor for both metals is the specter of much higher inflation caused by QE1 and stimulus 1 for 2011, more added inflation from QE2 and stimulus 2 in 2012 and the recognition that QE3 is on the way
