The recent downturn in all the markets is just the beginning of the inevitable and unavoidable stock market collapse that I predict will occur sometime from June to the end of this year. The recent global market declines even saw gold go down with it. Expect even more of this atypical discordance as to how all the markets react to one another because when the crash happens everything will turn to shit other what I mention below. When the crash happens the best you can do is preserve your wealth. Making over 5% returns in almost all investment vehicles will simply be impossible. This is where one now profits from their years, or even decades of preparations, and tightens the belt for the long cold economic winter ahead.
My own financial moves are to, as the dollar hits recent lows, get into dollars on these lows. When the crash occurs all currencies will be dogshit, but the US dollar will be the king of the dogshit and everyone will want some of it. Even in times of trouble and all currency being dogshit, one must still have and use a currency. Everyone will feel this way about the US dollar. The dollar has fallen lately and this is good as it is my buying opportunity. The more it goes down before the crash…the better is the opportunity to get into dollars. No matter your opinions or musings regarding the manipulated US fiat dollar, this is where the dollar will stand in the future…like it or not.
I expect interest rates to be raised and raised again, and again, and even…again.
My next suggestion is to get into US Treasuries and zero coupon bonds once they hit 3% yield. They have, with the recent market decline, risen to 2.85%. The highest in four years. Almost there and ready to buy when at 3%.
Excellent news that Lloyd’s Banking Group has banned customers from buying Bitcoin with credit cards. This has sent Bitcoin down to a sub-8K low and is dropping. I consider this an excellent time for me to begin buying Bitcoin on its way down. Bitcoin will soar once the stock market crashes into new historic highs into the 30K range. I consider this to be a one-time investment in Bitcoin unlike any other as after this stock market crash and meteoric rise of BTC happens the bankers and regulators will likely step in and ruin crypto with new regulations. Before that happens I will take my profits from Bitcoin and convert most of it into cash.
The only advice regarding the stock market is to short the market and prepare for it to crumble. The gold price will drop with the stock market crash as the derivative debt used to prop up the gold price will no longer be able do so. Oil will begin to drop to $20 a barrel and possibly even touch $15 or $10. That is right, I said it, possibly even $10 a barrel into the future. America is soon to become the world’s largest oil producer. Canada, Russia and Norway will also be producing big.
Are you ready for a stock market crash that will take decades to recover from? Are you living outside the dense population centers and prepped with supplies and armed with a survival strategy for the upcoming recession-depression? How are the hoards of street urchins going to react to this? Are you ready for all the debt bubbles to burst all at once and the price of your residential real estate to fall another 30-50% in value? Are you ready to be shredded to fucking pieces by Trump’s Goldman Sachs financial advisors that knew all along that this was coming and never declared a financial state of emergency on his first day in office like he should have?
It has been talked and speculated about forever. But this year the time has come. It should have happened in 2008, but…the bailouts. But now that same margin/derivative problem is 3-4 times worse that it was ten years ago. This time there will be no stop-gaps, no relief, no refuge, no parachutes, no bail outs…absolutely nothing is in place or existent to stop or save this market from crashing.
Trump and his Goldman Sachs economic hit team are poised to save their wealth, but also profit handsomely after the crash buying defaulted upon assets. This may be the real reason he became president at this time, and did collude with Russians regarding the lifting of sanctions, to win the election.
Prepare yourself. Following this will come the run-up to WWIII with China by the year 2025. The poverty explosion will be the perfect tool to convince the population to support war as that is where the jobs and big business, in a climate where there is none in the civilian-private sector, will be concentrated. It will be interesting to see how the media will begin to speak of this and manipulate toward this agenda. It almost always involves with creating a “Hitler” character onto which to focus upon. Someone who “gasses” his own people and is a serious violator of human rights. Look for this spectre cult of personality to begin to foment and be presented to the masses as to why China must be defeated and liberated for the sake of bringing them western democracy and the human rights that go along with it.
