Forget Stocks, Look at Euro-Bonds They are the Real Problem

I've been banging on for months along with Martin Armstrong that the real problem overhanging these markets is not an over-priced U.S. equity market.  That's a sympton of a much bigger problem. The real problem is an over-valued European sovereign bond market. Looking at today's bond market we see technical breakouts on yields to the … Continue reading Forget Stocks, Look at Euro-Bonds They are the Real Problem

Pipeline Wars: Realpolitik meets Geography

The headlines are ablaze this month with news from all over about new pipeline projects coming into Europe.  Never one to miss an opportunity to do the U.S. State Department’s bidding in how it presents pipeline politics, Oilprice.com published a howler of a piece about the Southern Gas Corridor. Titled, “Is This the World’s Most Critical … Continue reading Pipeline Wars: Realpolitik meets Geography

The War on Bitcoin is Proof Crypto is Winning

It's clear to me now that Wall St. is behind the failure of the New York Agreement. Roger Ver and his championing Bitcoin Cash was used as a stalking horse to destroy Bitcoin's ability to function in the marketplace.

Turkey vs. the Kurds – The New Syrian Proxy War

And because of that, his coalition with the Lega Nord (Northern League), while leading in the polls overall isn’t unified on much more than containing the electoral success of Movimiento 5 Stelle (5 … Continue reading Berlusconi, Italeave and How to Checkmate Germany

Italy Embracing Populism is a Major Headache for Europe

For years Italy’s Northern League kept to itself, being focused on secession rather than reform from within.  That change began last year with their non-binding referenda to petition Rome for more fiscal autonomy.  But, as the Italian parliamentary elections come into view, the Northern League is playing politics. And doing it well. Having made a … Continue reading Italy Embracing Populism is a Major Headache for Europe
