And everything can be a derivative…

Make your bets now.

Click here for P2P derivatives.

It was just a matter of time before a New York/London mathematician got a hold of something that might actually work past the debt system breakdown.

BTW, you can bypass the internet, banks, and Wall Street and starve them of all money and fees and help out worthy creditors by loaning money directly to a person with integrity that you know and trust. You can charge them a reasonable interest rate, get income, no one ships fees to Wall Street, no one creates derivatives that blow up whole markets, and you hold the collateral. If they don’t pay you back….you get the collateral and/or you get to deduct it as a loss. And you know where they live.

This is how a relative of gg’s bought their first house in 1952 with a 15-year loan to an individual who held a lien against the house.

But you must find a person of integrity ūüôā

And, for those you know without integrity….

Side musing: if you have a “friend” that you can’t stand and want to get rid of….loan them money. You may not see your money again, but you will never see them again.

Gifts: you can also just give money to people, up to $14,000 per year per person without a tax liability on either side. If you want to see your character and/or the character of another person, don’t lend them money, give them money.

Latest Video Interview from Martin Armstrong

Click here for latest interview with Martin Armstrong dated April 12, 2015 with uswatchdog.com.

groovygirl thought this interview was a good, compact form of Martin’s October 2015 Turning Point and the following impact, what he is calling the “Big Bang” or blow up/reset of global debt.

Quote:

Will the Fed finally raise interest rates?¬† Armstrong contends, ‚ÄúThe Fed will have no real choice. . . . The Fed will come under significant pressure to raise interest rates because the newspapers and Congress will blame them and say they are creating a bubble with low interest rates.¬† The more they raise interest rates, the higher the stock market will go.¬† I know that sounds crazy . . . historically, interest rates bottom with the markets.¬† I mean, you lose confidence and people won‚Äôt borrow.‚ÄĚ

side musing: still the big debate about inflationary or deflationary. Groovygirl still contends that the US will have both, so prepare/hedge for both. GG also believes that parts of the globe will have inflation and other parts will have deflation. Groovygirl thinks this is one of the main reasons that this global debt reset will be so confusing and shocking.

As you know, gg has been into real estate investing lately. A perfect example of inflation and deflation happening at the same time within one market. US high-end real estate asset prices have been increasing and low-end real estate have been collapsing in price. And the mid-range depends on where you are in the US. Whatever market(s) you are investing in, educate yourself and understand all aspects of that market.

What has groovygirl been reading?

totallygroovygirlfriday has been super busy with real estate the last few years. Things are going well so far.

Groovygirl came across an interesting book by Tony Robbins. It’s called Money, you may have seen it. Tony has been making the rounds on TV/internet.

This is a heavy book, very dense (600 pages). It doesn’t focus on gold or silver. But gg likes it because it gives an overall education regarding investing , especially 401ks. (You know how gg feels about 401ks.) This goes beyond debt reduction and teaches you about investing and what to look out for.

If you are an advanced investor, don’t worry about it. But if you have a friend that is out of debt and looking for the next lessons to learn, suggest this book. Tony’s cheer-leading way of writing may help give a boost where you fail with a friend. Investing and markets can so confusing and depressing sometimes, that people just give up.

600 pages….skip around for the info you need, if you find that overwhelming.

Let the games begin

The stars are aligning for another bank crisis and/or credit freeze and/or global debt collapse. Banks don’t want large cash deposits. Click here.

Banks are claiming that it is because of the Frank-Dodd rules, which really are so thin now, that this argument just doesn’t hold water. In addition, what little worry banks had about actually being responsible for their depositors money just got voted out by the new spending bill tonight (December 11, 2014). So, gg thinks that the big banks are getting prepared. They are lowering the cash they may need to return to customers during a crisis and anything beyond their capacity to produce, they are putting on the government’s shoulders. Or someone to blame for lack of cash for depositors.

Here is a good interview over at usawatchdog.com. Click here.

Although the stock market is going well. That’s about it. Oil is down putting major pressure on the US oil industry which is the only thing going well in the last 4 years. gg sees a major debt squeeze here if oil stays under $70 for the next 12 months. Debt has to be paid whether the oil well is running or not. Shutting down wells doesn’t pay off the bank, it just cuts payroll and hurts local economies.

Derivatives….the thing the big banks want the government to cover if (when) they blow up.

Derivatives, take your pick. Auto loans (maxed out), commodities (oil), stocks, government debt, Europe (still not fixed), China (slowing), emerging markets, and of course, currencies (very out of balance the last 8 months). Currencies are the largest derivative market. One or more can blow up at anytime and trigger a chain event. (Could be blowing up as we speak, but the chain reaction to multiple markets causes the crisis.) And the banks know that.

The good news is that since the government will cover any derivative losses for the banks, you will not lose money on deposit. May have to wait to withdraw it. (Money you can on get to, is not your money). Probably lose broker/invested money, it’s not covered. Groovygirl has suggested from the beginning to have investment funds with 2-3 different brokerage houses and then cash with 2-3 banks. That’s personal and business accounts. It’s extra accounting, but may reduce risk and at least have one account you can access immediately to keep things going in a crisis event.

Bad news is that the government will “print” to cover and you will be ultimately responsible for it through taxes, currency value, or perhaps even a brand new currency to restructure all the US debt.

This will not end well.

Make sure you are as protected as much as you can be. You can not control derivatives or government votes or market crisis, but you can control your money and finances.

I suggest to you that the next crisis will not be called a financial crisis. It will initially be labeled something else to keep people from assuming it is an event like 2007-2009 as long as possible. As this will cause everyone and anyone to “panic”. The time to prepare is yesterday, not tomorrow.

Warren Pollock has a new interview out!! Great info. Click here for Warren Pollock’s video interview on usawatchdog.com.

gg favorite’s line: the less flexible you are, the more reliant you are on government, the harder it will be. No matter what level of crisis you are preparing for, that truth remains…truth.

Blog Post from Martin Armstrong dated July 24, 2014

Click here for a post from Martin Armstrong dated July 24, 2014 entitled World Central Bank Secret Agreements.

From the link above:

That strategy depends on the rest of the world remaining strong. But if we see a turn down 2016-2020, it is hard to imagine Europe surviving the coming political storm.

groovygirl thought this was very important. This seems the only option to “control” the European debt implosion as everyone else is in a debt collapse, too. It’ s hard for a group of drowning men to save each other. May be impossible, but it gives us an idea of what the “first world”, US allies will try to do. Of course, there is that nasty unknown of shadow dark pool trading…..

Rereading Martin

Filed under: European Debt Implosion, Martin Armstrong, Odds 'n ends, The Financial Crisis — Tags: — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 1:06 am

Groovygirl was rereading some old articles from Martin Armstrong. The ones on the typewriter. Of course, gg often reviews the Real Estate Cycle one. Seems we are still right on schedule for the long decline in US real estate into 2033 after 2015.

gg was also reading March 21, 2013’s post entitled March 22nd-Just Amazing. I think you can find it on his site.

Martin refers to August 3, 2014 as a turning point for the Sovereign Debt Crisis Wave Formation. She is keeping an eye on that date.

And, of course, with today’s international events, it seems we are on track for a rise in the war cycle going 2014-2016. Maybe impact the global debt issue as well. The more global economic sanctions, the less global capital moves, the less global debt/credit available.

Hope everyone is well.
