Someone is not telling the truth – The Fed once again last week increased the size of both the overnight and “term” repo operations. Starting Thursday (Oct 24th) the overnight repos were increased from $75 billion to “at least” $120 billion and the term repos (2 week term) of “at least” $35 billion were extended to the end of November, with two “at least $45 billion” term repos thrown in for good measure. The Fed is also outright printing helicopter money for the banks at a rate of $60 billion per month (via “T-bill POMOs).

At the height of the last QE/money printing cycle, the Fed was doing $75 billion per month. So whatever the problem is behind the curtain, it’s already as large or larger than the 2008 crisis..
That escalated quickly – When the repo operations started in September, the Fed attributed the need to “relieve funding pressures.” At the time the public was fed the fairytale that corporations were pulling funds from money market funds to pay quarter-end taxes. Well, we’re over five weeks past that event and the repo operations have escalated in size and duration three times. Someone is not telling the truth…
The rapid increase in Fed money printing in just five weeks reflects serious problems developing in the global financial system. Actually, the problem is easy to identify: 
At every cohort – government, corporate and household – the level of debt has become unsustainable, with not insignificant portions of that debt in non-performing status (seriously delinquent or in default). 
Thus, the Central Banks have had to resort to money printing to help the banks manage the rising level of distress on their balance sheet and to monetize the escalating rate of Treasury debt issuance.
The quote at the beginning is from the former head of the Bank of England, Mervyn King. King is warning that the global financial system is headed toward a crisis and that money printing ultimately won’t save it.  While it’s pretty obvious that a disaster waits on the horizon, when the former head of a big Central Bank delivers a message like that instead of Orwellian gobbledygook, the world should pay heed.  I would suggest that the Fed’s money printing signals that the risk of a crisis intensifies weekly.


BG, yer kid should always have a full tank to get out of Dodge. I suspect an earthquake/tsunami situation more pertinent than a tinfoil situation.

But if the kid is a chip off the ole block, an extra tank will go to a family that is evacuating a bad sit while he stays behind medically helping those in need…

Obama’s election, and then re-election, gave the libtards license to ‘express themselves’.

I think that video is right…it’s likely terminal.

Of course a tidal wave could get them first.

This video documentary was very stressing for me to watch.

Posted by silverngold @ 17:16 on November 3, 2019  

In a past life I lived in Redmond Wa. and worked in Seattle before being transferred by the same company to Anchorage Alaska. None of the problems in this video existed back then. What in the HELL has happened?? This is depressing, but IMO more important than Silverngold. :o(

Goldie – we just don’t know what we don’t know in this life. I’ll tell you this, living in fear with regard to investing (since this is a quasi investment site) has cost me dearly. Essentially, betting for the cataclysm is a losing strategy. Maybe Taleeb has it right by throwing out long term puts on markets crashing from time to time. I don’t know.

Truthfully, I’m happy if nothing happens in Seattle and the Seahawks do OK and life goes on and Trump overcomes the insanity of the libtards constant attacks and pulls our kids out of the M.E.

MM3 – Yes it could be Tuesday 11-5, or it could be election day 11-3-20, when hopefully Trump is reelected after the demonrats have made complete idiots of themselves, as have the media. Or the Economist could be turning all of us tinfoil types into morons. Just sayin’.

Saudi Arabia Launches Its Long-Awaited IPO Of Aramco

Posted by ipso facto @ 14:02 on November 3, 2019  

As the global IPO market falters, Saudi state oil giant Aramco announced Sunday its IPO offering on the Tadawul exchange in Riyadh.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) and Aramco executives are scrambling to IPO Aramco before the IPO market shuts, and the global economy enters a trade recession.

The Aramco IPO has had nearly four years of delays but could start trading on the Tadawul exchange by December, with international offerings in 2020/21.

Aramco is expected to release the IPO prospectus on November 9, The Wall Street Journal said.

As you say if there was something going to happen then all the publicity may have helped prevent it.

Go Seahawks! 🙂

I should qualify that interesting meme to tinfoil: ipso may not think so!

Posted by macroman3 @ 12:12 on November 3, 2019  

Anyways, the German dude made lots of ad bucks from you tube…

Go Seattle! Er, ehm, maybe re phase Go Seahawks!

BG, some thoughts on FF. That Economist cover from 2015 had the 11.3 and 11.5 arrows. One year from now is election night, using either Nov 3 or this Tues Nov 5 as one year anniversary. 2020 is a leap year.

Posted by macroman3 @ 11:54 on November 3, 2019  

How would that affect the election turn out?

It was a fun meme to tinfoil, that German dude already has his reason for a nothing burger. His awareness prevented a FF attack.

I wouldn’t let my guard down though if nothing happens today. Could be a fake out for Tues 11.5

Well they have a lot of really smart people out there looking for terrorists despite side tracking false reports. They even use complicated math. That makes the towers suspect to me.
People do need to keep their eyes open to things out of place though.
We just dont hear about them except occasionally who got caught.Like those Somalis from Omars district. They should of just pulled their passports when they landed in the mid east and left them there. Saved us money feeding and housing them.
Send you son a water filter and some mountain house freeze dried. Probably can leave out the med kit he probably has one, There was talk about a west coast tsunami. Cant really predicr those tbings from afar off in time.

In the event of an EMP, my son would be in real trouble if it affected his transportation. I would likely be in trouble trying to get to him.

I’m prepared for that with food and water, etc., but he is not.
