As noted yesterday, exuberance has exploded in everything from consumer to investor to business optimism. The explosion of optimism […]

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Submitted by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog, I stopped trying to predict markets back in 2008 when the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department, Wall Street bankers, and their propaganda peddling media mouthpieces colluded to rig the markets to benefit the elite establishment players while screwing average Americans. I haven’t owned any stocks to speak […]

“It Was A Surprise To Us” – Yellen Reveals How Trump’s Fiscal Stimulus May Have Doomed The Stock Rally

“Some of the participants, but not all of the participants, did incorporate some assumption of a change in fiscal policy into their projections. And that may have been a factor that was one of several that occasioned these shifts.  But I want to emphasize that the shifts that you see here are really very tiny.” […]

“The Donald Nailed It” Stockman Screams “We Are In A Big Fat Ugly Bubble”

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, Most of the 90 minutes last night was a waste – with both candidates lobbing well-worn clichés, slogans and sound bites at the audience and each other.

A Confused Janet Yellen Tries To Figure Out If Stocks Are In A Bubble, Fails

So much can change in two years. On July 15, 2014, in the Fed’s biannual report on Yellen’s Congressional testimony, the US central bank had its first Greenspan moment when it duly warned that “valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially stretched–particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite […]

“Blunt Language” – Goldman Explains Why It Is So Confident The Fed Will Hike In Under 3 Weeks

What catalyzed this jump? As we reported at the time, the move was almost entirely driven by an unexpected note by Goldman’s Jan […]

Why Is FaceBook Funding “Anti-Fed” Activists

That’s what St. Louis Fed president James Bullard would like to know. Moments after revealing that the Fed is very close to admitting that the stock market is in a bubble when he told Steve Liesman that “I think we are on the high side of fairly valued, I could see the process getting away […]

Bullard’s Bubble Warning: “I Could See This Getting Away From Us”

While it has been a relentless jawboning session from various Fed speakers this morning, what caught our attention was an interview between CNBC’s Steve Liesman and the Fed’s recently converted uber-dove, St. Louis Fed president James Bullard on the topic of Fed mistakes, policy and “unintended” consequences such as asset bubbles. When asked what he […]

Steve Liesman: “Trump Voters Tend To Be Gold Bugs”

In the latest edition of the CNBC All-America Survey, Steve Liesman finds some curious nuances in how respondents to the latest edition of poll view the contest between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

ECB Blatantly Exposes Central Bankers Market Perversion

Authored by Mark St.Cyr, There was a time not all that long ago (circa 2009) when the markets were still gyrating wildly after the initial shocks of the ’08 collapse. It was during those gyrations that there was a very perceptible, heavy, and “hidden hand” making itself ever-present. This “hidden hand” came in only on […]
