What Isn't Imploding Now Wednesdays:

Collapsing commodities, currencies - what else

New low in National Bank of Greece stock, as Greece heads to default

Catalonian elections!

End of quarter - time for miners to start writedowns/bankruptcies?

Record PM demand, collapsing inventories, etc.

Calls this morning - by S&P - for the ECB to more than double QE; and by JP Morgan, for the BOJ to increase QE next month!

Lane Mendelsohn is the CEO of Market Technologies and developer of the VantagePoint financial trading software. Lane's father Louis, started trading stocks and commodities in the 1970s and, shortly after personal computers were invented, began developing technical analysis trading software for his own use as a commodities trader. In May 1983 he introduced the concept of strategy back-testing and optimization in trading software for personal computers in a series of articles published in Futures magazine and released of ProfitTaker Futures Trading Software, the world’s first commercially available technical analysis trading software that performed strategy back-testing and optimization on PCs." Even at that time his back tester was so sophisticated and intricate that it handled commodity contract rollovers and lock limit conditions. Currently, Lane claims that the software is 86 percent accurate and the firm has helped thousands to successfully trade in these increasingly volatile markets.

Jordan Goodman joined us today. As we've discussed in the past, markets continue their downward trend and interest rates are staying artificially low, there aren't a lot of investment alternatives. Jordan still believes that paying down your debt is crucial. In addition, bridge financing is still yielding 6 percent returns, not bad when banks are paying nearly nothing. Jordan isn't overly optimistic about the near term future and is in a defensive posture until further notice.

John writes, "The US markets awoke to news of several big, disturbing overseas events:

Glencore implodes. Think of Swiss commodities giant Glencore as a modern version of Enron, in the sense that it owns physical assets like mines and oil wells around the world and runs perhaps the biggest commodities derivatives trading desk. And — also like Enron — it’s apparently unprepared for extreme commodity price volatility. This morning its stock price plunged even further and its credit default swaps — the cost of insuring payment on its its bonds — blew out to record levels. 

If Glencore loses its investment grade rating as now seems likely, its access to cheap capital will evaporate and it will fail. This matters for several reasons, the most important of which is the company’s unspecified but certainly huge derivatives book which, like AIG’s in 2008, is a serious threat to the leveraged speculating community. 

Commodities from oil to gold are down hard on the news. 

Saudi Arabia cashes out. The world’s dominant oil exporter can’t pay its bills with crude at $50 a barrel so it’s spending down foreign exchange reserves and borrowing hand over fist. This morning it was reported that the Saudi sovereign wealth fund — a major player in global bond and equity markets — was cashing out and bringing its money back home. "

Danielle Park joined us for a discussion about the Central Bankers' inability to keep the system going. As a result, stock prices are headed much lower and this will put pressure on governments to purge the system and bring back morality. How effective this restoration will be remains the questions. But also driving this transformation is technology, especially the breakthroughs coming in energy and transportation. The two combined together are forcing changes at all levels of society, and the financial system is hardly exempt.

Erik Hadik has been warning for a while that the Russian Bear would be rearing his ugly head. And he's absolutely correct. From Crimea to Syria Russia is on the move. This combined with other factors should lead to high volatility and higher precious metals prices. 2016 is the year to watch.

We spoke with John Rubino today about the intractable situation the Fed now finds itself in. To raise or rates or leave them where they are is the question. Raising them could further strengthen the dollar and thus hurt exports. Leaving rates at near zero isn't really helping things either as shown by the dismal economic stats. Perhaps there is no monetary solution to the quandary. More likely it calls for some true leadership that has been totally lacking up to this point.

Like so many other things in life, selling your home is a process. Real estate expert and author Brett Furman suggests that rather than waiting to do the work when you actually list your home, get a head start. It also often pays to bring in a home inspector to evaluate what work needs to be done and how much it will cost to have it completed. That way, you'll know exactly what you're up against and be able to avoid the last minute scramble to get it done.

Craig Hemke says the Fed works for the banks, not for the people. Therefore, if they determine that it's in the banks' best interest to raise rates they will do it. Forget the burgeoning national debt and the fragile world economy, the only thing that matters to the Fed is the well being of their masters, the Banks, especially the Too Big To Fails. If that seems irrational, it shouldn't. The Fed's real purpose is to protect and to help the Banks flourish. And that's exactly what it's done throughout it's history.

As usual the numbers don't lie. Gordon T. Long and I predicted over a year ago that the Great News coming out of Detroit was more about easy credit than about solid fundamentals. Fast forward a year and now the truth is beginning to become obvious. Auto leasing is way up and the supply of cars about to come off-lease is going sky high, thus driving used and new car prices down. Around the globe auto makers are going to take a major hit. From China, to Germany, to Mexico, to the good old USofA, the story is the same. Markets artificially goosed up by easy credit. But the day of reckoning is getting closer.

According to Ned Schmidt, there's a complete absence of precious metals in the portfolios of virtually any major fund in the world. Prices are incredibly cheap. At the same time, stock markets are tanking around the world. No one wants to show any gold stocks in their portfolio as they show their year end statements. But come next year, then the move will be on. The technical outlook doesn't get any better. Ned says, "January will be the month!"

Jason K. Roberts says that anyone can get rich in real estate. The key is buying middle class homes at reasonable price and to not expect to get rich in a hurry. Most importantly, start early and have a plan. After 10 years you'll have a number of homes that will be generating a substantial cash flow that will enable you to keep buying more and more homes. Before you know it, you'll be retired and living the good life. Of course it's not quite that easy, but as you've heard here before, it does work.

Alan Newman has been a stock market guy for over 50 years, although you wouldn't know it to hear him now. He's really down on the market. He believes it's a place where the little guy no longer has an even chance at making money. With crony capitalism, manipulation, high frequency trading, stock buybacks and all sorts of sordid behavior, it's become a den of iniquity. He is bullish on certain high quality mining stocks and precious metals. It just requires patience and an understanding of economic trends.

The Keynsians are at their wits ends. The world economy has fallen and it can't get back up. Never mind the fact that it's broken because of the Keynsians and Progressives in the first place. So take their advice with a grain. War on cash, negative interest rates, refusal to redeem cash, these are just a few of their off the wall ideas to get the economy going. Of course they'll all meet with the same fate as their other ideas.

This is the week when the Fed is supposed to raise rates. While unemployment may appear to be lower, in reality work force participation is at levels that haven't been seen since the 1970's. Consumer spending is depressed. Are we about to make the same mistakes that were made during the 1930's? Bill thinks yes and that's why he thinks interest rates aren't going higher.

Danielle Park was back with us. Amazing news about the state of modern corporate finance. The IRS has been allowing tax-free stock buybacks in contravention of the US tax code, since 1976. This will eventually lead to massive economic damage, when the economy and the stock market turn down. We also talked about the "new" Justice Department policy of holding invididual corporate wrong doers responsible for the criminal acts of their businesses. What a novel concept that only goes back hundreds of years.
