US$ Rallies as Central Banks Sell Dollars

By admin / April 3, 2019

QUESTION: I am a mega dollar bull – I totally get how it is the only game in town.  I’ve lived it too, having seen how the big banks work their balance sheets from the inside. However… occasionally people send me charts like the one below and get all excited.  They say we are de dollarizing […]


Is the FED Throwing in the Towel?

By admin / March 22, 2019

QUESTION: Dear Martin, you commented very intensively on the ECB destroying bond markets and the failure of monetary policy in Europe.

By admin / March 14, 2019

  I cannot stress enough that Mario Draghi has really destroyed the European economy on an unprecedented scale.

The rally in gold and the stock market together is demonstrating that eventually, we will see the alignment as it transforms from Public to Private assets. The most deranged reaction to the Federal Reserve saying they will be “patient” on any further rate moves, is just beyond all reason. But markets are not always rational […]


Central Banks v Clearing

By admin / January 17, 2019
