“In the long run, The Fed is pressured to reverse coverage, minimize charges and re-install QE and different “stimulus” packages. This situation is exactly…”

Simply final week, we requested “what’s the bond market telling you?” Now, only one week later, with gold costs up $50 and charges even decrease, has the message modified or is it being bolstered?
Should you missed final week’s put up, you need to learn it now because it’s nonetheless related:
The gist is that this:
As charges world wide collapse, capital is dashing into the US bond market. As US charges fall, the yield curve inverts. Because the yield curve inverts, the US financial system begins to contract. Because the US financial system contracts, inflation disappears and charges fall even additional. And, ultimately, The Fed is pressured to reverse coverage, minimize charges and re-install QE and different “stimulus” packages. This situation is exactly what we laid out for you again in January and also you are actually seeing it play out in actual time. Please think about the forward-looking high quality of this forecast and examine it to the everyday “rearview-mirror evaluation” prevalent elsewhere.
So, as we kind on Tuesday, June four, the yield “curve” now appears to be like like this:
• FED FUNDS: 2.40%
• Three-MONTH T-BILL: 2.36%
• 2-YEAR T-NOTE: 1.89%
• 10-YEAR T-NOTE: 2.12%
Or, should you favor an image versus the printed phrase, see these:

OK, it’s possible you’ll be asking your self, what’s the purpose? Why does this matter to treasured steel traders? As a result of, in 2019, the central bankers are FINALLY being uncovered for all to see. These charlatans have been masquerading as saviors for a decade and the mainstream media has handled them as such. Bernanke, Yellen and Powell have tried to idiot everybody with claims of “rate of interest and steadiness sheet normalization” and the lots swallowed these lies complete…till now.
At TF Metals Report, we’ve written for years that The Fed COULD NOT increase charges. Although they tried to take action by way of the manipulation of their Fed Funds fee, there has by no means been any method that longer charges may ever return to “regular”. The unbelievable quantity of private and non-private debt worldwide merely prevents it. And now the jig is up.
The following FOMC assembly is in two weeks. At that assembly, The Fed will likely be confronted with two decisions. From their perspective, each of them are unhealthy.
1. Admit defeat and instantly minimize the fed funds fee by as much as fifty foundation factors.
2. Stall. And in the event that they do that, bonds will rally even larger because the bond market will anticipate an much more dramatic international financial collapse.
Because the tide recedes and the central bankers are uncovered, the last word ineffectiveness of their lies and schemes will likely be revealed to all. Renewed fee cuts, limitless quantitative easing and enforced capital controls with detrimental rates of interest are coming within the months forward. Your ONLY monetary safety towards this insanity is diversification and the continued accumulation of bodily gold and silver.
In our forecast from January, we predicted that the yr 2019 would unfold in a way just like 2010. That put up was up to date three weeks in the past and, should you missed it then, you need to learn it now:
The charts under are what you could think about once more in the present day as we conclude this replace. In 2010, you can have been 100% right about the place treasured steel costs had been headed by yr finish…however you can have simply been shaken out by the malaise that lasted till July. It was solely when the state of affairs turned apparent for all to see that treasured steel costs started to blow up larger and the again half of 2010 noticed gold transfer from $1160 to $1420 whereas silver rallied from $18 to $30.
And now right here we’re in 2019. Simply as in 2010, costs have moved sideways for the primary 5 months of the yr and solely simply now could be the funding world coming to phrases with the place that is all headed. The US financial system is demonstrably slowing, the US$ is rolling over, the yield curve is inverting, the Fed is reversing and the valuable metals are starting their transfer.
