Twitter Naturally Suspended Me Before Musk


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Nov 28, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Of course, Twitter naturally suspended my account for having the audacity to say that the COVID response was destroying the world economy by locking everyone down. That brain-dead decision created the disruption to the supply chain thereby creating the shortages that have set inflation in motion.

The central banks cannot possibly control inflation of this nature being shortages only amplified by the Russian sanctions. Raising rates will only add to the inflationary crisis further increasing the cost of capital reducing production even further.

I was suspended for political speech under the pretense of COVID.

It took at most 10 minutes for Musk’s team to UNLOCK my account. I just have to find the time now to start using it again – LOL.

Why I Look at the Dow First


Armstrong Economics Blog/Economics Re-Posted Nov 28, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Why do you focus on the Dow over the S&P 500 and others?

ANSWER: New analysts claim that the S&P 500 provides a better picture of the markets compared to the Dow. Although the S&P 500 obviously has a larger catalog, the Dow is a direct reflection of international capital flows. Look toward the Dow to see where big money is moving.

The S&P 500 is domestic-oriented, and fund managers and institutions tend to focus on this index. The NASDAQ typically reflects retail, often tech-heavy, and usually does not peak at the same time. Each index offers a completely different perspective. The Dow Jones Industrials is the big money. You will notice that this index leads the way. It is the first out of a key low because it is typically the foreign capital based on currency. You will also notice the Dow tends to top out first because the big money tends to pull out first also due to currency.

Capital is flowing like never before, and the smart money is on the move. Socrates users have access to our capital flow heat map that shows where money is moving in real time. The USD remains the last safe haven, and money is pouring into the US. Look to the Dow for the best international perspective.
