For all those progressives dreaming of a Mueller indictment of President Trump, dream on. It ain't gonna happen. Rudy Giuliani has ridden to the rescue. Now it's all about trading scalps. Who will be protected and who will go down. And that depends exactly what Mueller really has on Trump. Perhaps there's some bribes paid to zoning authorities or some other heinous crime. But it's not going to be enough save the Clinton Cabal or the Deep State. This thing is heading to a major climax. As Q anon would say, "Enjoy the show!" Everything Q has been saying appears to be coming true. When the first unsealed indictment is opened then I will be a true believer, but until then, it's more likely than not that Q is for real. But very soon we are going to know for absolute sure.

There's a new financial system on its way. No one is exactly sure what it's going to look like, but rest assured it's coming soon to a central bank near you. It might involve the SDR or perhaps Cryptos or something else entirely. It's just part of our economic evolution. All systems eventually perish due to excessive debt and this one is getting there real fast. How much longer will it be? No one knows the answer to that. It's kind of like people getting old. One minute you're in college playing beer pong and the next thing you know, the kiddies are checking you into assisted living. Time has a way of making everything and everyone accountable. This time really isn't different.

Mark Zuckerberg is like the state of California. Brilliant, young, reckless, self-destructive and much more. California is on a death spiral and yet so many incredible companies are crushing it. It's a real conflict. What will it take to change course? Can Trump do it? Is it even possible?

Chris Vermeulen is one of the most savvy traders around. Right now he's just waiting for something to happen with gold and silver. All the experts could very well be wrong, silver might actually lead. And if it does, this next precious metals bull market phase could far out perform even the most optimistic supporters. But as we know the future is always uncertain, so don't put all your eggs in one basket.

We review the latest happenings in the Deep State's plan to bring down Trump. It's amazing that he had almost every branch of government weaponized against him, and yet he still won! How did that ever happen? The truth is starting to come out and it's very scary. Comey and Meuller are just the tip of the iceberg. Trump's pardon of Scooter Libby is a message to the Deep State that he's fighting back and is going to take them all out. Do you know who appointed the Special Prosecutor who convicted Libby? James Comey! Enough said!

In the middle of March, The Guardian, a British lefty tabloid, rolled out a fake scandal that has dominated the media. Its original article claimed that Christopher Wylie, a "whistleblower", had revealed how Cambridge Analytica, the company he had worked for, had helped Trump win by illegitimately harvesting large amounts of Facebook data and then exploiting it to target users.
 
The story has since fallen apart in every conceivable way that a story is capable of falling apart.
 
Obama’s people had also harvested data from Facebook friends. "We ingested the entire U.S. social graph," his media analytics guru had boasted. But so had everyone else. A platform operations manager at Facebook estimated that hundreds of thousands of developers had gotten access to friend data.
 
So much for The Guardian’s claim that, "information had been harvested on an unprecedented scale". It's all just a big excuse to silence the right on social media and get rid of Trump. Good luck!

Matt Nye head of the Republican Liberty Caucus writes, "While speaking to reporters, President Trump said he will make a “major decision” regarding a U.S. response to alleged chemical weapons use by the Syrian government in Douma, East Ghouta, in the coming days. Trump went on to specify that the decision will be made “very quickly,” and that “nothing is off the table.” What could this decision be?" 

"Trump tweets condemnation of Syria chemical attack, saying Putin shares the blame. Why? What is his premise for this statement? What is the likelihood of a military strike against Syria?"

There's a retirement crisis that's about to hit the country. Whether you're a retired/retiring government worker, a social security recipient or perhaps a millennial who's expected to pay for it all, it cannot be escaped. Right now, we're content to kick the can down the road, but the day of reckoning will soon be upon us. Prof. Kotlikoff has a number of tools to help you avoid this fate. He talks about a few of them with us today.

The Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that aims to ease banking regulations, potentially making it easier for consumers to get a mortgage from a community bank or credit union.

With some bipartisan support, lawmakers' approval of S. 2155 was expected. The bill rolls back various banking regulations put in place via the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 following the mortgage crisis that roiled the U.S. economy a decade ago.

The Senate bill now heads to the House, where it could face less support as written. Last year, House lawmakers passed a measure that went much further in its rewrite of Dodd-Frank. Basically, the two chambers would need to agree on a version of the bill before it could be sent to President Trump and signed into law.

In simple terms, one of the Senate bill's provisions would let smaller institutions — those with up to $10 billion in assets — offer mortgages that are not subject to some of the strictest federal underwriting requirements, as long as they meet certain other conditions.

"Where it likely will make a bigger difference is in rural areas, where big lenders don't necessarily operate," said Richard Andreano, a partner with law firm Ballard Spahr in Washington and head of its mortgage banking group. "It can be harder to get a mortgage in those places."

Thomas a member of the FSN community asked us a question about the viability and future of the US Dollar. While the dollar might be the best looking horse in the glue factory, it's still headed for the glue pot of history.

Gerald is outraged. Why are we attacking Syria? Why was it done on Friday, other than to avoid a hit to the markets. And it seems to have worked. But are conventional weapons really more humane than chemical weapons? Gerald thinks not. It's amazing that we're in this situation. Gerald doesn't believe we're heading for a crash, at least not now. But the underlying economy is not so swell. It's weaknesses will become more apparent as we go along. Will that cause the Fed to pause interest rate hikes?

We connected with economist Steve Keen who unlike most practitioners of the dismal science actually proposes solutions that might even work. As almost anyone will tell you, the world economic system is a mess. There's way too much debt and not enough equity. Steve proposes paying everyone in the US a fixed amount of money. For those in debt, it would have to be used to pay it down. Those few among us who are solvent would use it to buy shares in companies who would be required to pay down their debt. It might not be practical but there's a certain sense to it. And in any event, it sure beats QE.

The stock markets are in transition from ABB (Always be buying) to ABS (Always be selling). Unfortunately there's going to be a lot of collateral damage along the way. Even if the markets don't decide to finally come down now, it's a certainty that that day is coming soon. So why not get out ahead of the cycle for once? If you're in cash, you'll be king and all sorts of great companies will be wildly  discounted when that day finally arrives.

Heather joined us again to talk about the FBI scam. Scammers got a hold of the FBI's identity theft reporting data base. Then they started a sophisticated campaign to convince those already victimized people to disclose financial information and scammed them yet again. The people thought they were communicating with the FBI, because the scammers already had all their info. Very sophisticated and very effective.

During most of the bull market, momo money flows have been positive to extremely positive in FAANG stocks. Now for the first time, there are early signs of the momo crowd turning on FAANG stocks.

To be clear, this is not an all out “sell” signal on FAANG stocks for two reasons. 

• The smart money is still not selling into the weakness. As The Arora Report has been sharing with its subscribers, the smart money has been lightly selling into the strength.

• The momo crowd is fickle. 

Three fundamental changes

Here are the three fundamental changes behind the turn.

• Facebook is under fire because its data has been misused. Is Facebook data a weapon that Facebook cannot completely control?

• The European Union may impose a 3% tax on gross revenues on big tech companies. If this happens, it will hurt earnings.

• There is a report that Apple is working on its own display technology. This will hurt many Apple suppliers. The ones that are seeing an immediate effect in their stock prices are Universal Display OLED, +5.37% LG Display LPL, -0.74% and Synaptics SYNA, +0.94%

Five stages you need to know

To profit from change, investors need to know the five stages of change. Please click here to see the chart showing the five stages for a “buy” position. Please click here to see the five stages of a “short” position. A short position is a bet on a decline in a stock. 

What to do now

The Arora Report subscribers have been provided with detailed guidance. What you do now depends on the following factors.

• Are you overly concentrated in FAANG stocks?

• Are you overly concentrated in tech stocks?

• Have you been taking partial profits along the way? 

• When did you buy those stocks?

• Based on the size of your unrealized gains, what are the tax consequences?

Finally, watch the flows to see if a buying opportunity develops or more partial profits need to be taken.

Another film by our favorite filmmaker Joel Gilbert. The movie is a hilarious look at the president's master branding techniques and how it helped him win the election. His ability to brand his opponents with derogatory nicknames such as low energy Jeb, little Marco, lyin' Ted and so many others is well honed. This was part of a well thought out strategy that led him to the White House. You can't argue with success.

The trade wars are coming to Walmart near you, or are they? Another example of the Art of the Deal. There will never be a trade war. This is just pure posturing. So be merry and buy some electronics, everything will be fine. Remember the cycles create the news, not the opposite. When in doubt, count your Bitcoin, or what's left of it anyway. The only thing to fear is bankruptcy, and even that isn't so terrible.

Ten years after the start of the financial crisis that erased $16.4 trillion in assets from U.S. households, Americans have yet to embrace the U.S. stock market with the same fervor as before, holding fewer individual stocks and putting less money into equities overall despite an uninterrupted 9-year bull market that has pushed the S&P 500 up nearly 310 percent from its 2009 lows.

Overall, U.S. households have $900 billion less invested in stocks than in 2007, according to Goldman Sachs research, leaving buying by U.S. corporations now the greatest driver of demand. In 401(k) retirement plans, meanwhile, investors now hold an average of 52.4 percent in equity-only funds, down from the 64.7 percent they held in 2007, according to Fidelity.

Instead, investors now hold an average of 33.2 percent of their assets in blended target-date funds that combine stocks, bonds and cash based on a person's expected retirement date, more than double the 14.5 percent of assets invested in the category in 2007.

The decline in the assets invested in stocks comes even as investors have largely benefited from the recovery in equity prices. The average 401(k) balance at the end of 2017 was  $104,300, up 112 percent from the average of $49,000 at the end of 2008 and up 54 percent from the pre-crisis average of $67,600 at the end of 2007, according to Fidelity.

"There just doesn't seem to be the same level of interest or animal spirits" among investors now for equities, said Mark Paccione, director of investment research at Raleigh, North Carolina-based Captrust Financial Advisors, which oversees $250 billion in assets.

Clients are much more concerned about the effect of rising interest rates and inflation on their bond portfolios, he said.

"They're very worried we will have a bear market in bonds and direct almost all of their focus there," he said.

The trade spat between the world's two largest economies worsened over the weekend with China hiking tariffs on a slew of U.S. goods in response to Washington slapping duties on Chinese aluminum and steel. The measures announced Sunday matched a list of potential tariffs on up to $3 billion in U.S. goods published by China on March 23. And it keeps on going. Where will it end?

President Trump has been using access to US markets to force countries to modify their anti-American trade practices. It worked with South Korea and it's working with other countries too. The US is finally standing up to China to prevent intellectual property theft and trans shipment of Chinese over production. Even the EU is starting to fall into line with their own interests. We'll see how it progresses over the next several months.

Houston we have a problem, actually a lot of them. The current bull market in global stocks has been proceeding a pace for 9 years. That makes this one the grandaddy of them all. Meanwhile, back in the real world, there has been little if any growth and if you adjust inflation accordingly, it's arguable that we've actually been in a major downturn since 2008. What's a central planner/central banker to do? Add to that picture, burgeoning sovereign debt on global scale, public pension plans about to go bust in the Western world and more currency units than can be appreciated, and you know there's big problems ahead.
