Will the Fed Reverse Course?

July 1, 2022

QUESTION: Marty, It seems like the Epoch Times is reporting nonsense.

Why Did the Dollar Rally Only After the 1929 High?

September 24, 2019

QUESTION: Hello, I am having trouble understanding how capital flows into the US, which helped the Dow double from ’27-29 didn’t move the dollar.
