The Stock Market Has Not Been Going Up For The Past Year

The stock market and the economy are very different animals. A recession refers to economic activity or economic growth it does not matter what happens to the stock market.

Now, the stock market has not been going up for the past year and in fact if you look at the average stock, the average stock has been falling for two, two and a half years. In fact, I think better than 50 percent of all stocks in the S&P 500 Index are now down more than 20 percent from their peaks.

U.S. Elections & The Stock Market

Everybody likes to say "the markets hate uncertainty". What the markets like less than uncertainty is certainty when certain is bad and there is a lot of bad policy that is coming and that is a certainty. I also think we are back in a recession.

We Have A Bubble Economy That Needs Zero Or Even Negative Interest Rates

The economy never covered it actually got sicker thanks to the Federal Reserve which is the reason why the Fed cannot raise interest rates, the reason why when they tried to raise rates it was a complete failure!

Because it is the cheap money the only thing that is keeping this bubble economy going. We do not have a legitimate recovery that can withstand higher interest rates. We have a bubble that needs zero percent interest rates or even negative rates at this point and more QE.

The Fed Cannot Raise Interest Rates

The Federal Reserve cannot raise interest rates but cannot admit that. So it pretends that if inflation picked up they would do something about it but they will do nothing about it. It does not matter how high inflation goes, 2.5 percent, 3 percent, 4 percent , 5 percent...it does not matter.They Federal Reserve will stay at zero or practically at zero. They will not try to reign it in because if they tried they would cause a worse financial crisis than 2008. (SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD), iShares Silver ETF (SLV))

Any Meaningful Increase In Interest Rates Would Bankrupt The Country

We have so much debt in the United States particularly at the Government and the Fed itself and the debt is of so short term nature at the Federal level that any meaningful increase in interest rates would bankrupt the country.

The U.S. Dollar Is Going To Fall Hard

The Dollar has already rallied for years based on a lie and a false understanding of the true state of the U.S. Economy and the direction of U.S. monetary policy.

The Dollar did not rally as a result of Brexit and the next thing it is going to happen is that it is going to fall, it is going to fall hard.
