Capital Wave Forecast: Market Analysts Know the Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing

0 | By Shah Gilani

It’s more than likely going to be another week of sloppy trading.

Besides being an extension of last week when the Dow Jones Industrials rose gently on Monday, flat lined on Tuesday, dipped Wednesday, rallied Thursday, and ended Friday drooping into the close, there’s nothing monumental right in front of markets right now.

A rate cut at the end of the month is a foregone conclusion.

Thank you, Federal Reserve, for your cheerleading.

It’s going to be a quarter point, not a half point as some overzealous analysts were touting.

We know that fact of a rate cut percentage because the Fed sent up the smoke signals telling us that, just so no one got overzealous (you listening analysts?) and bid up stocks higher than the Fed expects them to be at this juncture

The Real Reason Facebook’s Libra Won’t Get Off the Ground

This won’t take long.

That’s because the real reason Facebook’s Libra, Mark Zuckerberg’s would-be world dominating cryptocurrency, won’t get off the ground isn’t because of what any of its detractors are saying about it.

And, they sure are hammering it from every angle.

The real reason Libra will never be what it could be is that it could replace central banks’ lucrative fiat currency, fractional reserve magic money grand scheme.

Here’s what everyone’s saying and the real reason Libra is being killed in its cradle…..

Capital Wave Forecast: Go with the Flow on Rising Global Capital

0 | By Shah Gilani

The forecast this week for equities, and bonds for that matter, is partly to mostly sunny with occasional earnings misses and “talked-down” forward guidance casting the only clouds on the landscape.

The Fed advertising their intent to backstop markets by cutting rates is by now old news.

It’s almost a stated guarantee that we’ll see a quarter point cut out of the July 30-31 meeting minutes.

Then there’s the prospect of a September cut. Fed Funds futures are pointing to that as more than likely.

Not a bad background from which to paint a rosy picture.

But there’s more…

No Free Market Until We’re Free from the Federal Reserve

0 | By Shah Gilani

The Federal Reserve System is a plague on free enterprise, on capitalism, and on democracy.

There’s only one way to free America of the increasingly powerful and manipulative future a private central bank yokes us to.

That’s to revoke the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and all subsequent amendments to the act.

Here’s what the Federal Reserve is empowered to do, why the act that legislated it into existence should be revoked, and what should replace it…

Glittery Delivery Records Isn’t Gold for Tesla

Just a few days ago, Shah shared his contrarian view on Tesla’s record filled orders: the market has simply been too generous. Though the stock pops, the demand of orders are all fulfilled, and competition is creeping in. Shah also addresses what kind of effect the disappointing jobs number will have long term on markets and the economy at large… Click here to watch.

Wall Street Lies About Booming Equity Markets

0 | By Shah Gilani

With equity markets rallying hard and fast from late December to April 30, then dipping in May, and now rallying to all-time highs for the S&P 500 in June, you’d think tons of capital flowed into equities, then some flowed out, and now more started flowing back in.

But you’d be wrong.

Investor-driven capital waves haven’t been flooding into equity mutual funds and ETFs.

Quite the opposite.

Since we’re back up near all-time highs, you might be wondering where we’re going from here.

Understanding what investors are really doing and what’s really driving equities higher is important.

Not because stocks could go higher, but because they could tank if the real driver of higher prices is killed.

Capital Wave Forecast: Markets Hooked on Steroids

0 | By Shah Gilani

Summer’s here and “the livin’ is easy.”

That’s because the ice cream man’s promising to spoon-feed steroids to every man and market, whether they need pumping up or not.

So, go ahead and get back into the market, get all in, why not, because it’s all good until it isn’t.

It doesn’t matter that the Federal Reserve’s gone crazy, in the face of a strong economy, promising to “act as appropriate” and cut rates if pushed by the President, as well as appeasing presumably scared investors running to flight to quality trades that took the 10-Year Treasury yield below 2% last week.

What matters is catching the next leg up in the bull market, the one for stocks as well as bonds.

Because it’s all good until it isn’t

Catch the Capital Wave Triggering Massive Bond and Stock Rallies

0 | By Shah Gilani

As waves of capital poured into U.S. Treasuries this year, causing bond yields to fall precipitously, the flight-to-quality trade sparked fears of recession and worse.

Federal Reserve officials registering inflows into Treasuries as a sign of investor fear had to soothe markets with talk of interest rate cuts.

Bond markets, anticipating future rate cuts, saw more capital inflows.

Treasury prices rose further with the bond rally lifting stocks back up towards record territory.

That’s what everyone sees on the surface, but there’s a lot more to the story and it’s not all good.

Here’s the real backstory, how we got to where we are today, and what’s likely to happen next

Why the Fed’s Forecast Has Everyone in “Fight-or-Flight” Mode

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

The Fed’s decision on rate cuts today determines everything for the markets going forward. No matter how many rate cuts the media could possibly predict, Shah isn’t so convinced the Fed will fall for it. What he sees is a much more pressing forward guidance from the Fed that investors need to watch out for. And in response, markets are moving and bustling, so Shah has his eyes on the three sectors taking over all the talk… Click here to watch. Click here to watch.
