This stuff never seems to matter=the U.S. national debt first surpassed $23 trillion on 10/31/19, having surged a mind-boggling $982 billion in the three months

U.S. Fiscal Position

A simple but devastating overarching explanation for recent tightening in U.S. short-term liquidity focuses less on the consensus angle of “insufficient bank reserves,” and more on the interesting twist of an “excess of collaterals.” While these phrases might at first sound like mirror images, it is their direction and slope which truly matter. Indeed, a growing number of prominent investors are postulating that an inflection point may have been reached in mid-September at which the Treasury is simply issuing more paper than can be financed by existing liquidity channels!

[United States Treasury] (Trailing 12 Months) (1993-8/31/19) [Meridian Macro]

As shown in Figure 5a, above left, the U.S. national debt first surpassed $23 trillion on 10/31/19, having surged a mind-boggling $982 billion in the three months since Congress lifted the most recent debt ceiling on 8/1/19. During the past 12 months, U.S. national debt has now jumped $1.3 trillion, necessitating $1.2 trillion in Treasury issuance. Unfortunately, as shown in Figure 5b, above right, trailing 12-month net foreign purchases of Treasuries (through 8/31/19) have once again collapsed into negative territory.

Ironically, the debate about whether recent Fed asset purchases constitute QE could soon be supplanted by a more eye-opening discussion as to whether they constitute outright monetization of runaway federal deficits

GUSH also includes natural gas which has a five day island reversal top.

More fleecing machines? Bandages to staunch the flow?

“For those who have at times struggled to understand the difference between COMEX inventory categories ‘registered gold’ and ‘eligible gold’, now your head can spin even more, since the CME’s COMEX has just introduced a new category – ‘pledged gold’.

This pledged category was first noticed on the infamous COMEX warehouse late last week by Nick Laird of fame, with the pledged gold column intriguing populated with an entry next to the New York vault of bullion bank, HSBC. What did this pledged column entry mean, we wondered, and where did it come from?


Very good Corbett Report if you don’t mind hearing the truth.

Crude up 45 cents yet GUSH is down. 6%–ERX. down 1.74%-EXXON down .5%–and. many others. I track down

Barring. a war, it seems. to me like the oil rally from $54. to 57.50 has run its course and crude’s. gonna go down and test the $54 level again



I. also think VXX is. probably a buy right now seeing how the. Fear N Greed indicator  has been near 90% for a while and. selling volatility is at the same. level it was before the great one day wipeout of a year or two [?] ago


FROM NOV. 11TH===Commitments of Traders (CoT) large speculators, who are notoriously on the wrong side of the trade, are once again at a record-setting VIX futures short position this week. I expect any short-term pullback that would create a rapid uptick in volatility would be followed by aggressive covering in these positions and likely reallocating to equity positions.

Finally, market breadth has seemed to lag what we would expect in a traditional breakout. The percentage of stocks trading above their 50-day moving average has yet to break out with the broader market, while the percentage of stocks trading above their 200-day moving average is approaching overbought levels. Some strategists have pointed out the divergence in the percentage of stocks trading above their 50-day moving average this past week, but I wouldn’t look too far into the divergence. First, I think this is the wrong way to look at the indicator. We’re still trading near the higher end of the range of its historical range at 66.53%.

October Budget Deficit Surges 34% To $134 Billion, Worst In Five Years


That next USA financial downturn, which could be only a $100B of deficit spending away, is going to go exponentially south once it arrives.

I think that chart is BS. It shows current debt-to-gdp of approx 75% when everybody knows it is already at 107% of GDP.
Bahahahaha.  It’s ALL Kuroded!
Issue as much debt as it takes to be able to say “the economy is GREAT, etc.” according to massaged rules that allow the so-called justification for such a statement.  Same goes for USA company financial performance.
Why does the deficit matter anymore when we all know creating money out of thin air has been going on for decades?
Became visible in 2008 because the economy as too small to support the concealed money printer.

There is only ONE ‘Pagan”.    Pagan Island is a small volcano island at the north end of the Northern Marianas.  Because of frequent lava flows covering most of the island, it is no longer occupied EXCEPT for one sole inhabitant  that maintains a small residence at the shore on the bay.  This inhabitant maintains the land claim for the Northern Marianas.  He is visited regularly by the US Coast Guard who maintains the light beacon and navigation aids in the area.  The sole Pagan inhabitant is a volunteer post that is changed from time to time.

So…. Now that you know the rest of the story, do you still want to be a Pagan?  It’s a lonely job.  🙂

If the GSR is defining the bullish / bearish impulses in the move, where it declined 15 weeks starting the beginning of July up until mid October (15 weeks), then we should see weakness for the next 4 weeks minimum (6 weeks total – 38% time retrace), bringing us to the end of tax loss selling in mid-December.

The GSR should not exceed 90 on a weekly closing basis if this assessment is correct.

My two cents.

“The big hedge fund managers are probably puppets of the central planners”

Yes this is the case with some bank owned/controlled firms, but not all. And while the banks could be playing both sides of the markets for perceptual purposes, it doesn’t matter as long as they control prices.

I don’t give a shit how it happens. I just want a free moving PM markets that trade on fundamentals.

This horseshit is for the birds.

I think it’s coming because god (nature) will win in the end.

I just hope it comes before I’m 80 and Road Warrior conditions don’t prevail.

Do we become full blown commi’s in the meantime?

Who knows.

Captain Hook @ 8:22 re The Paper Commodity Markets Determining The Prices

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 11:04 on November 13, 2019  

I have to assume the central planners feel responsible for the public greater good, and to make sure there are important products available, and at the cheapest possible price.

Re your, “Again, the culprits who matter are the big hedge fund managers playing the derivatives / futures.”

The big hedge fund managers are probably puppets of the central planners, that do as they are told with a phone call. Didn’t we all decide long ago JP  Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs were involved? Basically, commodity producers are generally screwed. Farmers too. Only occasionally do they get a happy run-up in prices, then they invest in more capacity, and down goes their price again. They can’t win.

Even if you are a machinist, or own a machine shop, your “widget” business is too competitive and not very lucrative. You don’t get any gov’t support.  If you build houses? You do. Low interest rates and tax breaks on interest and taxes paid. Plus they don’t import houses from China YET. 🙂

If you are a saver? Same thing, no gov’t support. F/U too. Zero interest.

The bottom line: Savers and Producers are screwed for the greater good. Borrowers and spenders are rewarded.

We could all be starving next year and the prices will not be allowed to rise.

Don’t know how it ends but it won’t be good.
