  • One of the loudest creaking sounds coming from the markets right now is the global economy straining under a record pile of debt. The world has continued to borrow hand over fist since the financial crisis, adding nearly $60 trillion since 2007 in the process of pushing the worldwide debt load to $200 trillion, or nearly three times the size of the entire global economy.

    The World’s Debt Is Alarmingly High. But Is It Contagious?

  • The question becomes, just how long can we try to climb out of this mess before it consumes the entire rope? It does appear that the greatest period of turmoil will be 2017 moving into 2020. Whatever can go wrong – will go wrong. We have everything culminating from a Sovereign Debt Crisis to the War Cycle intermixed with political destabilization.

  • Absolutely. Putin was elected on March 26th, 2000 (2000.23). That is precisely to the day from the collapse of the USSR on August 19th, 1991 (1991.63). This is a UNIVERSAL frequency. It is not some theory on mine. It is something I bumped into and discovered. It is not restricted to financial markets or any nation. Pi is starting to be discovered in other fields even quantum mechanics.

    Is Russia Subject to the Economic Confidence Model

  • The gold promoters’ fundamental explanation has done a tremendous amount of damage. They have wrongly linked gold to geopolitical events as if it were somehow always bullish regardless of where the event takes place. Capital always flees from the battlefield. During WWI and WWII, money fled to the USA, and at the end of the day, the USA had the greatest gold reserves.

  • The 1985.65 turning point produced the G5 and the Plaza Accord. That was the beginning of this Private Wave. It did not appear to be significant at the time, but it set in motion the change in trend in the dollar and the shift in capital that resulted in the 1987 crash, which concluded in that 4.3 wave at 1989.95 that culminated in the Tokyo Bubble.

  • The fact that the stock markets are crashing into the 2015.75 turning point, rather than making a major high, indicates what we should expect to unfold in the future. In 1987, the low was on the day of the ECM, as was the case in 1994, whereas 1998.55 was the high in the Dow that day. So a low suggests higher highs, whereas a high at this point in time will mean a profound longer-term correction.
