Managing Money v Teaching You How to Survive


QUESTION: Marty, they have always called you the Legend. You have proved that you are probably the greatest trader that ever existed. You not only have choreographed when the correction would start, but you have held our hand through this entire decline. Again you said the market would decline into the 23 of March and that should be the temporary low. Nobody forecasts markets like you do and that is why everyone tries to ignore you while others hate you out of jealousy. Won’t you return to funds management? Please! We could really use you in these troubling times.

SH

ANSWER: I greatly appreciate the fact that many people have been writing in to say thank you. I prefer working on Socrates. Only on the private blog do we provide forecasts to the day. We do not provide that on the open blog. If I just managed money, I would not have the time to write or program. I believe in the old saying, if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

My goal is to prove that markets are orderly and it is total nonsense that there is some random walk. That is an excuse for someone who is not a student of the markets and cannot see the order because they take no responsibility for their own losses. It is easier to always blame someone else.

Yes, they have called me the legend. I suppose that is better than the oracle given that strategy is just to buy and hold so you look like a hero in bull markets and take massive losses in every decline. Markets rise and markets fall. You NEVER marry the trade! That is the sure-fire way for a fool to be separated from his money.

The object here is to understand how markets function for if we grasp that revelation, then we can manage our economy and live WITH the cycle instead of always fighting against it. Academics try to reduce the market to theories yet they fail to understand human emotion. They will advocate lowering interest rates as if someone will borrow when they see no future. The absurdity of Keynesian Economics is beyond belief yet they have attempted to manage the world economy based upon a theory that has never worked even once. Even Pail Volcker admitted that in his book on Rediscovery of the Business Cycle.

I have stated many times that Karl Marx killed more people than any religious war and in fact, all wars put together. He was responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths. Yet the left keeps trying to force his theories upon society creating havoc, hatred, and class warfare. They violate even the very Ten Commandments which aside from religion, appears to have been a pearl of respected ancient wisdom we refuse to listen to. Why does the left keep trying to push Marxism upon society? They simply covet what other people have and want to punish others for being more successful.

We have shut down the entire world economy for less than 20,000 deaths worldwide? This is a joke. Either John Hopkins University has deliberately been part of a plot to further Marxism or they are outright ignorant of what they are doing. They have supported the destruction of human rights and liberty advocating you kill the patient to cure the disease. More people die in car crashes annually than this death toll no less the annual flu which kills hundreds of thousands of people. We do not surrender our rights and close the economy for such events. So why this virus?

The red dots of John Hopkins University are outright propaganda. They are not current. They do not disappear with the virus subsiding. Look at China. They are deliberately misleading and make it appear as if whole countries are infected supporting stay at home and marshal law. This is propaganda they have been promoting and we have governments declaring emergency powers to end democratic processes thanks to this misleading graphic which is historical rather than current and the dots may represent just one case, not the entire state.

We are fools for what is taking place. There are dark forces whipping this up into a panic for the sole purpose of creating authoritarian powers because they do understand my models and they are scared of losing power. We have Democrats holding parties calling this the Trump Virus. They are cheering the destruction of the economy just to get rid of Trump. Their hatred of him is deeply concerning for the veneer of civilization has been removed and we stand on the precipice of civil unrest and bloodshed all in the name of Marx. I recently asked a Democrat why do they hate Trump so much. They could not articulate a single act he has done. They simply said presidents shouldn’t Tweet.

Governments can see the Monetary Crisis Cycle coming to destroy their systems. This is the best way for them to fight back. I have warned my concern was what comes AFTER Trump. My deepest fear is the loss of all civil liberties and fools are cheering this on without understanding what they are wishing for.

I am concerned about the future for my posterity. They will NEVER know the world in which I grew up in.

There is a government now who wants to openly use our models to trade. They have one of the top 5 wealth funds in the world. I believe they will open it up to manage money using our models. But I have ZERO interest in returning to funds management. Other countries in Asia have openly admitted they are using “Capital Flow Analysis” which is our model at the central bank level.

Again, I greatly appreciate the trust and confidence. But I prefer to teach you how to fish for a lifetime rather than to feed you for just one day. This is a picture of my backyard. It is my sanctuary from the craziness of the world. I will feed the birds. They know where to get a free meal. That will last only when I am here – not forever. What we face is more serious. We have to learn that the world is not a toy for us to manipulate as they are doing right now to retain power. They will fail for the system they seek is just not sustainable. So I prefer to teach you how to see the world so you can survive rather than manage money like feeding the birds for a day.

Germany to Suspend Democracy for One Year as State of Emergency?


 

The Bundestag will declare the epidemic case on Wednesday, according to Green Party leader Katrin Göring-Eckardt. Germany is moving to declare a state of emergency for ONE YEAR on Wednesday, 3/25/2020. We are witnessing the collapse of democracy and the rise of authoritarian governments. They realize that they were on the edge of collapse. The socialist agenda was collapsing along with pensions. Their only solution was to create a pretend pandemic and use that to seize control of everything.

There are those who still think cryptocurrencies will be the alternative to fiat money. I strongly urge that you get a new pair of glasses. They will NOT ALLOW any competition. This is about seizing full control. They will not allow any alternative form of cash and that includes gold. This may be the time people begin to switch to silver soon.

The Visible Enemy!


The Enemy of the People, the corrupt Fake News Media 

There is a dangerous enemy attacking and destroying our nation from within.

No, I am not talking about the coronavirus, I am talking about the corrupt, China loving propagandists of the Fake News Media.

They say a crisis will show a person’s true character. The mask has slipped off the Fake News media’s hateful face. No, let me rephrase that, Fake News doesn’t even try to hide their hate for President Trump and his supporters anymore.

The disgusting Washington Post (Jeff Bezo’s personal blog) published a call for the end of the highly informative live broadcasts of  Trump’s Coronavirus briefings because four new polls showed approval ratings for Trump’s handling of the crisis climbing.

We can’t have Trump approval ratings climbing can we?

If you can’t beat Trump censor him..that’s the radical Democrat’s plan for Trump and his supporters which diminishes the MAGA message on social media and the mainstream media.

The so called “journalists” are more concerned with political correctness and Trump calling covid-19, the Chinese virus, than actual facts and information about the pandemic.

Reporters are making a spectacle of themselves with their unhinged, unprofessional behavior. They want to be the story, the reporter that “got” Trump.

Instead, the fifth column Chi-com propagandists have revealed themselves as the enemy of the American people and of our nation.

The day of reckoning is ahead.

To all our friends, stay safe, be well and know your President has your back!

Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter Celebrates Violence and Suffering Toward Political Opposition During Coronavirus Pandemic…


Christine Pelosi is Nancy Pelosi’s daughter.   In this tweet below Ms. Pelosi celebrates the coronavirus diagnosis for Senator Rand Paul, by commending political violence carried out by a neighbor against the senator last year.  Do not look away:

[LINK]

Apples don’t fall far from trees.  There is a reason why the far-left celebrates and embraces political violence; and cheers when their political opposition has any form of suffering. It’s a mindset our founders warned about, and carried into all political oaths of office; you might be familiar with the phrase: ..”against all enemies foreign and domestic.”

The Pelosi family publicly exhibit a psychology adverse to the interests of peace and tranquility.  They are, quite simply, the manifestation and embodiment of the warning within the oath of office.  These are the “domestic enemies” within our nation.

David Plouffe was the campaign manager for President Obama.

“His kind”?

Think about the words being used by both Plouffe and Pelosi very carefully.

 

Are They Planning ID2020 as Mandatory Implants for All as the Solution to the Crisis?


There is a very concerning proposal running around in Washington. The technology already exists for pets which is an electronic microchip or transponder. A subcutaneous electronic microchip allows you to identify your pet. It is no larger than a grain of rice and only takes a few minutes for your vet to insert. A transponder does not emit any electric waves once inserted.

The proposal is a digital certificate that verifies if you have been vaccinated and was developed by MIT and Microsoft. They are looking at merging this with Bill Gates’ ID2020It is entirely possible that this scare has been a deliberate plot to get people to accept these digital implants. Refuse, and you will be prohibited from social gatherings. Like 9/11 conditioned us to be x-rayed before entering a plane, now the next stage is to embed digital markers that they have been using in dogs and cats.

Bill Gates has sought to impose mandatory ID chips in you. He argues that his idea is not an infringement on privacy.

Price Waterhouse is all for ID2020 to forcibly install digital chips into all of us.

 

 

The United Nations’ WHO is part of this ID2020. Scaring the world and making people feel unsafe unless they are certified not to have this coronavirus just may be part of the plot behind the curtain. I hate conspiracy theories, but this is in the open. The health industry is destroying the world economy and making people feel unsafe. Unemployment is skyrocketing as people lose their jobs and will be then conditioned that if they have been certified, then and only then will they be safe to return to the workforce.

 

The Fear Parade


“You never let a serious crisis go to waste….It’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” — Rahm Emanuel

Whether or not the US had anything to do with the creation and release of the COVID 19 virus, it is sadly predictable that our government will use the situation to further increase its power by lessening our freedom. US government operatives helped commit the 9-11 disaster and as a result we got the foul “Patriot Act” forced upon us, which has nearly obliterated our 4th Amendment.

When government gets more power, it never relinquishes it. The CIA-influenced mass media has drummed up hysteria about this latest virus, and some even imply Trump is to blame. One thing for sure, everything else they drummed up to try and remove our lawfully elected president has failed. Now they will blame Trump for COVID 19 and the collapsing stock market.

During the Boston Marathon bombing, government managed to lock down an entire city. Now the government is seeing if they can lock down an entire country. If they succeed, then it will become routine. “Lock down!—Everyone must be at home so we can administer mandatory vaccines! Or, “Lock Down! Everyone must be at home so we can confiscate your firearms!” And so forth. Our freedom of speech will be restricted. Only government will have the official word along with the CDC and World Health Organization. By the way, Bill Gates helped fund the WHO and I also heard he was part ‘owner’ of the virus patent. Last week he suddenly resigned from Microsoft’s board. Perhaps he knows he’s partially responsible in some manner and is heading to a private location to avoid a hemp necktie.

I’ve read all the conspiracy theories regarding the reason for the release of the virus. One of the most believable contentions is the virus is a distraction from 5G, which is dangerous to humans. Ironically, Wuhan is big on 5G. 4G is fast enough, but 5G is necessary for the globalist power freaks (such as Bill Gates) who desire ‘smart cities’ that monitor everything citizens might do.

The coronavirus mostly affects the infirm and the elderly. Most Americans can and will endure it. We will also most likely be forced to endure an even more tyrannical and oppressive government.

Remember 9/11 and the “Patriot” act- Panic is worthless and can only lead to tyranny!

German Comment on Nationalizing Industry due to Coronavirus is Insane!


QUESTION: Dear Mr. Armstrong, I have been following you for a few years and what strikes me most is that I read years ago that China would have collapsed in 2020 but that Asia will recover and will be the driving continent from 2036 …

My question is this what do you think of Germany’s decision to print 550 billion euros through the KFW bank in support of businesses and the statements of the German economy minister who says that strategic companies should be nationalized … isn’t that contradicting the so much stressed globalization principle and the “so scandalous” principle of sovereignty?

They claim to use the flexibility that is allowed in the Stability and Growth Pact, but I’m feeling teased while in Italy there is a risk of having to resort to the MES  with a further risk of worsening the economic condition.

Thank you for your attention

L


ANSWER: PeterAltmaier, the Federal Minister of Economic Affairs, was joined by the left-wing Schultz in a joint statement that effectively said that since they cannot bail out companies, perhaps they would just NATIONIZE them. Austerity has been imposed on Europe by Germany and the refusal to consolidate the debts was all because Kohl wanted a single currency to increase German sales throughout Europe, but he did not want to accept a true federalization of debt – having your cake and eat it simultaneously.

This has been the disastrous structural flaw of the Euro. It has not worked and what we see is the Coronavirus is being used to reverse that posture and even justify the entire confiscation of private assets by nationalizing companies. This will be the final nail in the coffin of Europe. Why would any investor be interested in European stocks if the government can act like Iran and just confiscate all private assets?

The economic structure is crumbling. This is why China will rise, not so much that it will be so fantastic, but that the West is gradually committing economic suicide. We have so many people repeating the Coronavirus beating it into such a major scare tactic that people are then willing to surrender all their rights when they are being told it is for their own good. I went behind the Berlin Wall before it fell. They told the people it was not to keep them in but to keep others out because Communism was so fantastic. Obviously, Bernie Sanders believed that one.

 

NEC Director Larry Kudlow Discusses Economic Impact of Coronavirus…


National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow discusses what economic options the U.S. government has to mitigate and assist businesses and individuals dealing with the financial impacts of coronavirus.

Note to Mr. Kudlow: Do not trust Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci is a purposeful panic seller. His goals are not the administrations goals.

The Blame Game Trump vs Xi Jinping


Communists consider religion to be the opiate of the masses. Both the Soviet Union and communist China have oppressed the religious. Bernie Sanders promises action against Christians, whom he calls ‘religious bigots.’

Most communists do not believe in God. Their god is the ‘state.’ The state can do no wrong—it is both omniscient and omnipotent. It is perfect and incapable of mistakes. Heretics who doubt communism can face gulags or a bullet in the back of the head. In China, Mao starved millions of his own citizens for the good of the state. Nowadays, Chinese dissidents might even face having their organs ripped out of them. The state feels no guilt about any of this. After all, they consider humans to be data at best and at worst mere blobs of matter who are there to carry out the will of the state. The citizens must also pretend to be happy about it.

The problem with the perfect state of communism is the lies. The Soviet Union lied about nuclear technology and that led to the Chernobyl disaster. The current Chinese Communists are lying about the release of a bioweapon from one of their labs in Wuhan. The ChiComs must present themselves as incapable of error, so they’re now blaming the United States military for the virus. The ChiComs consider themselves to be perfect, therefore they will never admit a mistake. They never accept blame. Being wrong is a sign of weakness.

President Trump realized the United States has been wrong about trade with China. The US has become far too dependent on China for pharmaceuticals, for example. The ChiComs are now threatening to cut them off. It’s time to bring manufacturing back to America and that’s just what Trump wants to do. If we don’t do that, we’ll only have ourselves to blame.

President Trump Proclaims Sunday March 15th A National Day of Prayer….


[White House] ~ A PROCLAMATION~

In our times of greatest need, Americans have always turned to prayer to help guide us through trials and periods of uncertainty. As we continue to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans are unable to gather in their churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship.

In this time we must not cease asking God for added wisdom, comfort, and strength, and we must especially pray for those who have suffered harm or who have lost loved ones. I ask you to join me in a day of prayer for all people who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and to pray for God’s healing hand to be placed on the people of our Nation.

As your President, I ask you to pray for the health and well-being of your fellow Americans and to remember that no problem is too big for God to handle. We should all take to heart the holy words found in 1 Peter 5:7: “Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.” Let us pray that all those affected by the virus will feel the presence of our Lord’s protection and love during this time. With God’s help, we will overcome this threat.

On Friday, I declared a national emergency and took other bold actions to help deploy the full power of the Federal Government to assist with efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

I now encourage all Americans to pray for those on the front lines of the response, especially our Nation’s outstanding medical professionals and public health officials who are working tirelessly to protect all of us from the coronavirus and treat patients who are infected; all of our courageous first responders, National Guard, and dedicated individuals who are working to ensure the health and safety of our communities; and our Federal, State, and local leaders.

We are confident that He will provide them with the wisdom they need to make difficult decisions and take decisive actions to protect Americans all across the country. As we come to our Father in prayer, we remember the words found in Psalm 91: “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

As we unite in prayer, we are reminded that there is no burden too heavy for God to lift or for this country to bear with His help. Luke 1:37 promises that “For with God nothing shall be impossible,” and those words are just as true today as they have ever been.

As one Nation under God, we are greater than the hardships we face, and through prayer and acts of compassion and love, we will rise to this challenge and emerge stronger and more united than ever before. May God bless each of you, and may God bless the United States of America.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 15, 2020, as a National Day of Prayer for All Americans Affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic and for our National Response Efforts. I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers for all those affected, including people who have suffered harm or lost loved ones.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

DONALD J. TRUMP
