Not Disgusted By The Trade Deal “Close/Not Close” See-Sawing? You’re Doing It Wrong!

SD Midweek Update: Forget Trump’s “after the election” talk because Phase Whatever is almost a done deal, sort of, once more, and all over again!

It’s getting pretty disgusting.

Why people put up with this utter crap is beyond me?

Of course, sheeple and zombies aren’t people, so it really shouldn’t come as any surprise.

On Monday and Tuesday it was all about President Trump escalating the trade war.

Here’s Bloomberg yesterday morning:

Yesterday’s escalation was follow-through from Monday’s escalation.

Today, Wednesday, I begin with a scan of the “news”, and what do I see?

Disgusting crap spewing from Bloomberg (yellow highlight added for emphasis):

All that’s going on here is the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street is getting more powerful, and richer.

This is flat-out market manipulation, and everybody’s just cool with it.

Dang shame.

On the political front, the circus side show in Washington DC is in full swing now.

By the way, what ever happened to “lock her up”?

Is that still a thing?

What ever happened to the mass arrests?

Is that still a thing?

What ever happened to the military tribunals?

Is that still a thing?

What ever happened to sending the Traitors to GITMO?

Is that still a thing?

What ever happened to the 487,981 sealed indictments?

Is that still a thing?

No, no, no, no and no.

They’re not.

Because President Trump is a Deep State Globalist in Patriot’s Clothing, and the Patriots have been duped.

Gold is refusing to go much lower because, believe it or not, the .01% of the population that can see through the lies are taking action:

The technicals are supportive of a rally.

I just really wish we would have had that final flushing so the technicals became extreme.


The technicals don’t matter.

What matters are the headlines coming out of Bloomberg, and yes, it’s what the headlines say, but, more importantly, it’s who controls the headlines.

He who controls the headlines controls the markets.

He who controls the markets controls the dollar.

He who controls the dollar controls everything.

Keep that in mind when it comes to the switch.

I’m still trying to figure out how Michael Bloomberg fits into all of this.

It’s funny how everybody’s favorite wannabe alternative media website’s given nary a peep about the latest Deep State Globalist (Michael Bloomberg) to enter the 2020 Presidential “race”.

As if the President is elected and not selected.

But I digress.

I would have also liked to see silver become “extremely oversold” before attempting to break-out:

But like gold, the technicals are supportive of a rally, and I think the fundamentals are starting to come back into the “market”.

If we’re at the start of the next rally, get ready for a drop in the gold-to-silver ratio:

Once we take out that 78.92 low, I think we will have kissed 80 goodbye for this cycle, so we’re in that final window of opportunity for those looking to convert an ounce of gold into over 80 ounces of silver.

Palladium is showing us that the cartel can in-fact be defeated:

That is to say, if the cartel could stop palladium’s rise, they would.

Of course, some of the cartel’s resources have been diverted to platinum:

Platinum is looking bullish here, however, opening the day above it’s 50-day moving average.

Upside surprise imminent?

OK, “Hey Half Dollar, why are you asking about an upside surprise?”.

Well, yesterday gold & silver were rising in price while palladium and platinum were still down, which was a signal to me that the “safe haven”, “flight to safety”, or “hedge against uncertainty” bid was on, and if President Trump comes out and openly escalates the trade war today, that bid could be on again, forcing the cartel to divert more of its resources to gold & silver, at the expense of platinum.

Here’s the thing: The Fed conducts its 2-day FOMC next week, and President Trump’s script says to be licking his chops for a rate cut, and that would only happen if there was an escalation of the trade war and consequent drop in the stock market.

Why is that?

Because we’re basically at full employment now, and prices, as in “price stability”, are rising close to, but not at, the Fed’s “2% symmetrical inflation objective”, or so they say.

So it must be a trade war escalation to spring the Fed into rate cutting action.

Or so the script goes.

And a drop in the stock market ahead of next week’s FOMC would be icing on the cake.


Crude oil looks interesting here:

The technicians will be talking about a “textbook bounce” off of the 50-day moving average.

Side note: Flying under the radar right now is escalating tension with North Korea, and further “diplomatic” escalations in Latin America, which means that in addition to the already present tensions in the middle east, we could very soon begin to see the fear premium coming back into the price of crude.

Furthermore, if I’m right about the Deep State Globalists’ plan to bring maximum pain to America in the form of economic misery and financial ruin, then we’re about to start feeling pain at the pump.

It’s time to find out if copper will play ping-pong between its two major moving averages:

I think that’s what happens, although at this same time I’m quite aware of that lower high on the chart.

At this point, however, I’m still not looking to double-bottom.

There could be fireworks display in the VIX by the end of the week:

Remember: Just yesterday President Trump said he doesn’t watch the stock market, but rather, he watches jobs, which means we now have the most important jobs report in the history of jobs reports, ever, coming up on Friday.

Of course, President Trump saying “I don’t watch the stock market” yesterday is a bold-faced lie:

Not only does the President watch the stock market, but President Trump is directly involved in the active manipulation of all markets via the Exchange Stabilization Fund.

But don’t take ‘Ol Half Dollar’s word for it, see for yourself right there on the US Treasury Department’s website:

“Rogue spoofers” are the only ones manipulating the markets in general, and actively suppressing gold & silver prices, huh?

Pathetic excuse.

But then again, some sheeple “baaaaaaaaaa” better than others, so yeah.

Still, it’s a pathetic excuse at best.

The Fed Funds Rate, at 1.5% to 1.75%, is barely below the yield on the 10-year:

If yield keeps falling from here, we will have more clues that the Fed will cut next week instead of the expected hold.

It’s not looking good for the dollar bulls:

There’s no shortage of dollars, but rather, oversupply of people thinking about it wrong.

Bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful Wednesday in December?

The “trade deal close/not close” flip-flopping is getting very annoying.

As is our “public servants” circus side show in Washington.

The zombies and sheeple are oblivious, however.

That the head-shots are indeed coming.

That the slaughter is coming.

Defense matters now.

More than ever.





Stack accordingly…
