Market Talk – October 6, 2016

October 6, 2016

An orderly open for Asia with an oil rally ($50.5 TWI) following on from a positive US session really leading momentum. We did see a wobble just ahead of lunch but that was only short-lived and as trading remains thin due to China’s absence. All in all we closed firmer on both the Nikkei (+0.5%) […]

The Coming Cashless Society & Automatic Driving Car Age

October 6, 2016

COMMENT: Martin – I wanted to let you know that I stopped at a Jimmy John’s today and they wouldn’t allow me to use cash. They had no drawer or physical money on the premises. It was either chip card or no sandwich. They claimed it was their first store in the nation to go […]

SEC Administrative Law Courts are Unconstitutional

October 6, 2016

The U.S. federal courts do whatever they possibly can to avoid real issues to maintain powers that are clearly unconstitutional. I reported last year when Judge Leigh Martin May struck down a SEC order on this challenge back in June 2015. Now on September 15, 2016, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has dismissed it, claiming that such a challenge must FIRST be made […]

Market Talk – October 5th, 2016

October 6, 2016

A steady but quiet day in Asia saw a good performance all around with 0.5% better return. JPY continued its decline reaching the mid 103’s as the Nikkei’s run gained pace.

Putin has retaliated by suspending the nuclear pact with the United States, which is now raising stakes with Washington. This suspends the plan to clean up weapons-grade plutonium. According to a report, the CIA is to supply the mercenaries in Syria with heavy weapons.

Why Corporations Die

October 5, 2016

QUESTION: Hello Martin and thank you for all your fascinating and informative emails. I’m probably naive and unrealistic (if everything goes in cycles maybe it’s just the way of the World) but I just read your email about Sears and felt pretty sad to see something that survived well for a long time and provided so […]

It’s Not a Banking Crisis – This is Just a Learning Process says ECB Member

October 5, 2016

QUESTION: Mr, Armstrong, Just how stupid do these leaders really think we are? The ECB Governing Council member Ewald Nowotny said there is no banking crisis. “We are in a transition and learning process.” KR ANSWER: Well they think we are stupid, and the press is either brain-dead or corrupt. It is unbelievable. However, if we […]

Obama & Martial Law

October 4, 2016

For years there have been rather stupid rumors that Obama would call martial law to stay in the White House. This is not a power-hungry guy. He plays golf more than anyone and misses more than 60% of his national briefings. The ONLY rumor that comes from behind the curtain, and not the internet, is what I […]
