Quickly draw your own conclusions
In just a short time, with some practice and focus on proper technique, anybody can see what the media is really saying. Here’s a quick screenshot from Bloomberg, renowned
business propaganda news outlet with a very, very expensive paid subscription “market headline feeder” known as “Terminal” that tells insiders investors what to trade every nano-second of the day. For those who don’t want to spend the more than $24,000 single user annual license fee(2013 data, now Bloomberg does not openly list the price), here’s a quick and dirty guide to the front page that the rest of us get to see. Check out this Thursday late-afternoon screenshot:
Here’s what to do:
- Real information scrolls by only, very quickly, and for a limited time. If you are not watching, you will miss it. If all the economic data of late was not bad enough, people are now buying less food.
- Just in case you saw that bad news in point 1, divert your attention away from Main Street USA and focus on far away lands. Now, this is a “business” website, yet for regular people like you and me, its all about “politics”. In fact, the word “politics” appears 3 times while the word “market” only appears 2 times. Since actual bad news was scrolling by, with all the literary jujitsu, perhaps politics will dominate the thought process, and if it does, well, we have the words “Trump”, “Grand Jury”, “Crackdown”, “Leaks”, “Vow” “Fraught”, “Grand Jury” and don’t forget the most important work in there: “Russia”. If a business website has turned to the geo-political landscape, or suddenly is worried about the a famous singer, or maybe there is a world record of sports coverage, their intention is to distract attention away from one area and put it somewhere else. If it is all negative stuff (which it is), then they are hoping you don’t see something (because it hits home).
- Never, ever, ever, by any means, under any circumstances say the word “Gold”. The only exception is “Goldman Sachs”, and that is only because the “Terminal” might not be programmed to handle a name change going to computers operated by said name. If a feed slips though by accident, which happens from time to time, it must be anti-gold. And if they never, ever, ever by any means say the word “gold”, then they never, ever, ever, ever, ever say the word “silver”. We know, however, that if we substitute and invert, we can find the real story. In case of point 3, we see the stock market falls on news, but following our rule, we can say “Gold rises on WSJ Report of Mueller Impaneling Grand Jury”. If we do that, we can easily test the theory:
Yup. Just as we though.
And that is how we can pierce through the noise.
But then again, probably nothing…
