Good morning all, how was your weekend? I trust it was a good one for you all. Down here in way too hot Florida, our weekend went a bit askew. My wife is battling a sinus infection, and was in no way up for a bike ride. Not to mention we broke records for heat, as it was a blazing 97 degrees. 

6.22.2019 - WAR! Is it coming to an Iran near You Bookmark

Hello all, the Sunday edition of the Financial Intelligence Report is posted and this one's all about war. Are we going in? If so, why? Is Iran really the sponsor of so much terror, or is it because they refuse to bow down to Israel, that we're almost in a shooting war with them? 

 

We discuss all that, and then of course we look at the market which put in an all-time high this week. Does it belong here? are earnings and rate cuts going to keep it going? Give this a read today, it's a good issue.

War
 
In 1970, while the US was still mucking it out in Vietnam, Edwin Starr released a single called “War”. It was a catchy, raspy, tune, perfectly in line with the times, as thousands of our men and women slugged it out in Southeast Asia.
 
A few of the lines stand out to me:

Friday. Yes indeed it's another Friday. But at least this Friday is sort of special. 

Today is the longest sunlight day of the year. The summer solstice. After today, we will begin losing from 30 seconds to a minute of daylight per day. You won't notice it for about a month, but thenone day you'll be outside in the evening and be surprised that it's starting to get dark "so early"

Well isn't this something. I wake up this am, flip on a monitor and the futures are up 232?  Uhm, why? 

Yes Powell folded and will be cutting rates. We all know that. But he hasn't yet.  Okay, so maybe they know something big is coming out of the G20? I don't know.

Hey everyone, the new Issue of the Financial Intelligence Report is up, and in this one we dive into the lunacy that is indeed "negative interest rates."  Is it possible that here in the US we might one day see negative rates? It's not only possible, it's coming. 

Not many know that there is already 12 TRILLION dollars globally that is posted at negative interest. This abomination, this monetary VooDoo is a disaster of epic proportions. Yet we're on the path toward having them right here. 

In the Market commentary, we chat about the Feds punting on cutting rates, and ponder the Trump/Xi meeting at the G20.  It's all good reading and like always, it's free.

Negative
 
Here’s something you don’t hear about on your 6 pm news. The amount of sovereign debt trading with a negative yield hits an all- time high. Yes folks, negative interest rates.

*FRENCH 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS TO 0% FOR THE FIRST TIME
*SWEDISH 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS TO 0% FOR FIRST TIME
*AUSTRIAN 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS BELOW 0% FOR FIRST TIME
 
Are you seeing a trend here? Good, because whether you want to believe it or not, we’re going to be experiencing negative interest rates here too. It’s simply a matter of time.

Mornin all, we've made it to Fed day. 

Not to beat the dead horse, but I'll give my opinion again. I don't believe that Powell is going to cut rates today. There's quite a few people that do think that, but I just think it will reek of desperation. Instead I think that they're going to lay out the commentary as to why we're going to see them cut in July.

Hey everyone, good morning to you. 

So the day has already become a clown show. Overnight, Mario Draghi said the ECB is ready to go cut rates and fire up the QE machine. Just like Powell here in the US, it was just half a year ago that Draghi was talking tough about hiking rates. Now he's going full blown dove again, which of course threw the currency markets into a snit.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a tremendous weekend. Ours was very different for a change. Being creatures of habit, we generally do our running around on Saturday, meaning groceries, post office, banking, etc. Then on Sunday, we either find a park to hike through, or a trail or a fishing pier, or our standard bike ride to the beach.
