SD Friday Wrap: It may not be too late, but one thing is certain – there may not be any time left to prepare…
Editor’s Note: Please note that we are still behind on our emails. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
The Mainstream Media really does not want the alternative-media talking about the coronavirus.
It’s getting pretty ridiculous.
Just check out our last several videos on YouTube:
They’re coming hard and heavy with the censorship, demonetizations, shadow banning and more.
Their latest trick was a two-for-one which affected today’s live-stream.
First of all, they’re now demonetizing our live-streams before we even go live, essentially forcing us to create new live-streams in an inefficient manner, only to demonetize the newly created ones only seconds later, and still happening before we even go live, and secondly, we had some quirky problems with our YouTube “stream key”, even though everything was configured correctly and triple-checked on our end.
If you ask YouTube what happened, they’d likely say something completely non-informative and totally not useful such as “the stream key did not synchronize properly with YouTube’s server upon creating the upcoming live-stream”.
Regardless, after two failed attempts to go live, Mike created a new live-stream on the fly, and we finally went live.
Today’s show was jam-packed with information and call-ins, so please give it a watch or a listen if you haven’t already:
- Why an explosion of coronavirus cases in Mexico is likely.
- The groundwork has been laid for Martial Law in the US.
- Bio-weapons research/development examples in Boston.
One of the key take-aways from today’s live-stream was that if you think the information coming out of China is suspect, when it comes to the US military’s plan for fighting this pandemic in the United States, as written about yesterday, well, let’s just say the United States is going full Orwellian, and beyond!
Using the mainstream media, such as YouTube, will no doubt be employed.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, nobody cares about your lame excuse for the laughably low view count, much less about your whining about all things YouTube, so could you just get on to your point already?”.
Here’s my point: “Looking forward to the weekend” may soon be a thing of the past as this coronavirus becomes a very real thing in the present.
For now the question is, what comes this weekend?
The stock market hit a new all-time high yesterday:
Amazingly, people still think the Fed will keep this thing propped-up in the face of a destructive global depression brought on by a devastating global pandemic.
I think the plan all along was and is to crash the market, and now the narrative is perfectly set.
Is it not?
And with the first confirmed Covid-19 case in Africa, if Latin America joins the party with a case of coronavirus of its own, we could really see some fireworks next week.
For now, however, it’s all about maintaining the illusion of certainty in the markets:
They will maintain certainty until they decide to pull the plug on the stock market, and if we get a surge in Covid-19 cases over the weekend, to me, that would say that we’re very close to them pulling the plug, and if there is a surge in bad news outside of China, to me, that could mean a stock market crash and spiking volatility are imminent.
Which means the bottom’s about to fall out of yield on the 10-Year Note:
If yield crashes hard and fast because the stock market is imploding, don’t be surprised if the Fed comes in with an “emergency rate cut” before their next 2-day FOMC.
Also don’t be surprised if that emergency rate cut takes rates all the way down to zero.
Oh yeah, and everybody’s favorite Fed pick Judy Shelton did walk back her “I would never take rates negative” statement during her confirmation hearing yesterday.
People sure are lovin’ some US dollar:
People will hate holding on to them as soon as the hyperinflation kicks-in.
In the meantime, however, holders of US dollars need to use this time, and their dollars, wisely, especially since the dollar’s seen a nice strengthening when measured by the DXY.
The double bottom has held in copper:
If the double-bottom holds, in my opinion this is an indication of the inflationary pressures having more effect on price than the reduced demand for the base metal during a global depression.
The analysts are coming out of the woodwork with their low-$40s crude oil calls:
The tough and very real question is how much will demand for oil drop during this global pandemic?
Palladium is still banging around in a choppy sideways channel:
If the other precious metals don’t get to moving here, then I’d be looking for another trip down to the channel’s support line at $2200.
Platinum’s range has been pretty tight over the course of the week:
Explosive move imminent?
Silver stackers with gold to spend still have an awesome opportunity before them:
I really don’t think it gets much higher than 90 at this point because not only do I think that silver will not crash with the broader stock market crash like it 2008, but since gold has maintained its persistent bid, I expect silver to start outperforming gold here when gold gets above $1600 again.
Silver under $18 will be “the good old days” pretty soon:
If that’s one gigantic bull wedge drawn from the low of $14.26 and the high of $19.75, then we’re arguably just days away from the break-out.
Gold is ready to break-out at any moment:
I say that in part because the chart, technically speaking, looks so darn bullish, and I also say that because gold has remained bid despite the strong US dollar and the surging US stock market.
Bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful Friday in mid-February?
The rest of the world is starting to understand just what’s coming.
The MSM here is trying to downplay what is coming.
Do we have one more weekend to get ready?
Or is it already too late to prepare?
Gold, silver and your skills.
Maybe some extras.
