Martin Armstrong’s latest blog post dated February 25, 2014

Click here for Martin Armstrong’s latest blog post entitled Caesar-Beware of the Ides of March dated February 25, 2014. It looks like panic cycles in some major markets toward the end of March.

Ukraine is certainly heating up and global markets really have not reacted to this situation yet.

Martin Armstrong talks with Glen Downs Feb 20, 2014

Click here. A two-part interview, about 25 min total.

Martin brings up a good point. When current political governments are overturned, debt payments may not get paid. New governments want to give cash to the people, not overseas bank creditors or internal corrupt government/systems.

We’re shocked, shocked….

….to find LIBOR rigging going on. Click here. Well, groovygirl is still wondering who is currently doing the rigging as we have not seen extreme movements up or down in LIBOR.

John Williams with

John Williams has his latest real stats out. You pay for the detail, well worth the money, but here is the punch line:

Strongest Signal for a Recession Since September 2007
– January Real Retail Sales Activity Plunged by 0.6% for the Month
– Unadjusted Monthly January 0.4% CPI Inflation Squashed to 0.1% by Seasonal Adjustments
– January Annual Inflation: 1.6% (CPI-U), 1.7% (CPI-W), 9.2% (ShadowStats)

John uses the original inflation index formula, before gov started jacking with it. Did your wages/income go up by 9% to meet the real inflation index? groovygirl’s didn’t. Who needs hyperinflation when wages are down or flat or zero because you are unemployed coupled with a 9% real inflation rate and climbing? In the main street household, that can feel like hyperinflation pretty quick. At the very least, it means less consumer spending, saving, and debt for big purchases like houses, cars, and student loans.

Just a little midweek conspiracy talk….

Pam Martens with Wall Street On Parade has written a few very interesting articles. And groovygirl is still looking at those recent deaths of bankers and traders.

Click here for an article about the government’s investigation of the oil and gas industry and possible price rigging and control. Explains how banks rig commodity prices. Also explains where all that taxpayer bailout money went. They bought assets! Hint: you should be doing the same.

Click here for Pam Martens article on the recent deaths in the banking and related industries. And that reporter is still missing. Also explains possible bad long play in life insurance industry. Pandemic would probably help the position.

Here is another very interesting article on the mysterious deaths. (Read the whole thing, very good, especially that part about V.)

In groovygirl’s humble opinion: although, these are just a few articles, it is clear just from the revolving doors between public and private industry (clear for anyone to see on the linked-in profile of an executive) that there is a silent contract between public government and private companies deemed too big to fail. groovygirl does have one question. Assuming that government is “investigating” these shenanigans and are getting close enough to have certain people bumped off. Would not that cause the manipulating to stop, slow down, or transfer to another company/office/country? Why then have we not seen a drastic change in markets, since no one or fewer people are “manipulating” them. Such as LIBOR, currency swaps, etc.? Groovygirl would suggest there are some possible reasons for this: there is no manipulation at all, we are seeing the result, the government (or certain parts of government) is much more involved than previously thought and is now controlling that manipulation directly, or the same banks are doing the same thing and they are counting on government to look the other way while they “slim” their staff. Lots of questions, few answers.

Jesse’s update on Gold

Filed under: Gold and Silver Investing, Precious metals — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 3:34 pm

Click here. Gold and silver still holding its own. From Friday: “Gold ran right up to the chart’s first ‘red resistance’ line today at
1320 and stuck to it, with the usual wobbling back and forth. So needless to say it took out its 200 Daily Moving Average with some authority.  Silver popped a buck and change, and settled for 21.50ish.” Jesse from Cafe Americain.
