Financial Guys: "Three Times More Extreme than 2008"

Financial Guys: "Three Times More Extreme than 2008"

Every once in awhile, there's a chart that just blows your hair back.

In years of doing this, none stand out like this one.

Last week, institutional traders bought $8.1 billion worth of "put" options. They bought less than $1 billion in calls.


For what it's worth, this is 3x more extreme than 2008; when everyone who mattered **knew** things were going to crash . . .  and then did crash.

 Is this signaling "the mother of all crashes?"   Maybe.  But if it happens, it will by a HYPER-INFLATIONARY CRASH through demand destruction.

The way prices are rising, and costs of production are increasing, people are being priced out of buying and companies are being priced out of operating.   Everything might just . . .  stop.


In related financial news, the average 30-year mortgage rate climbed to 5.89%, the highest level since . . . 2008 . . . .  according to new data published Thursday by Freddie Mac.

Mortgage rates briefly declined for a period this summer even as the Federal Reserve raised the key interest rate to fight inflation. Markets have been closely watching the Fed's moves since the interest rate hikes began in March.

"Rates are reacting to Federal Reserve Chair Jay Powell’s comments following last week’s jobs report in which he reiterated his unwavering focus on bringing inflation down to its 2% target level," Lisa Sturtevant, the chief economist at Bright MLS, a real estate data firm, said in an email.

In remarks Thursday morning, Powell signaled the Fed intends to keep rates higher for longer.

# The US Economy is the stock market.Dummyemail@ 2022-09-10 12:08
The US Economy is the stock market. These wall street whores look out to the next quarter for profits where the Chinese look out to a decade of more.

Notice the 2% inflation rate buried into the Federal Reserve. There will always be inflation until the economy finally collapses.
# Judgement?Slim 2022-09-10 09:04
We wonder why we have the problems we have in this country. We need only look into a mirror!
# OptionsHt247BR22 2022-09-10 08:26
Although 8.1 billion doesn't seem that much (when compared to the trillions the government owes), one option gives you control over 100 shares of whatever, so these 8.1 billion in options are probably controlling between 800 billion to trillions in actual stocks so this can be a big market mover.

Biden executive order # 14067 section 4

Executive Order 14067 | Does Biden’s Executive Order
On Currency Have the Power to End American Freedom
On December 13th, 2022?"

Executive Order 14067 Explained | Catherine Austin Fitts
Explains, “A Digital Transaction Control Grid…Your Money
Will Turn Off 5 Miles from Your Home.”

This is the introduction of a currency system that will
enslave the nation and is the prelude to the Mark of the Beast.
The digital currency banking control grid.

To start in December 2022.

Biden’s Dollar Plan a ‘Deeply Troubling Development’

Legal government surveillance of all U.S. citizens
Total control over your bank accounts and purchases
And the ability to silence all dissenting voices for good

Start checking up on this yourself.

Kiyosaki called President Joe Biden's signed executive order
"the most treasonous act in U.S. history" and the creation of
Central Bank Digital Currencies, or CBDC, as "communism in its
purest form," encouraging Americans to "stay awake."
# RubbishThe Infant Phenomenon 2022-09-13 19:53
"This is the introduction of a currency system that will enslave the nation and is the prelude to the Mark of the Beast."

Click bait is that that is. This is believed only by people with a total slave mentality.

HOW--specifically, precisely--will this s**t be enforced? By whom?

What if somebody decides to shut down the electricity by sawing down a power pole or two?

The wording of your post assumes (!) 100% acquiescence by 100% of the population. And "they" ain't gonna get that.
# And WHERE, pray,The Infant Phenomenon 2022-09-13 19:45
will they get the electricity for this? It relies 1000% on an UNFAILING supply of electricity, which we don't have and which we ain't GONNA have. Power line and poles are above the ground. Will Congress outlaw chainsaws?

And WHO, exactly, is going to allow himself to be contained within a five-mile radius of his home?

Tt's common knowledge that the power grid cannot be defended by anybody or from anybody.

And what if the banks and businesses that try to use a digital "currency" find their buildings burned to the ground? Or find themselves without electricity?

What then?

The "government" can do this ONLY with 100% cooperation from 100% of the population.

Everything in the world is now connected, so if the electricity goes off in San Francisco, banks in China and France and everywhere else will have to shut down.

"They" don't have the power to do this s**t. If even a small percentage of the population refuse--REFUSE--to go along with it, then the whole thing becomes totally impossible.

Without an UNFAILING AND UNIVERSAL supply of electricity, this whole digital "currency" is a total non-starter.

As rates rise, the economy starts to tank, and then begin to crash, when the Fed will have to cut back no avail and we sink like the titanic. When this happens, remember that this was (is) the goal, and when the time comes, our goal is to defeat the enemies.

Fear and Greed cycles come in many sizes and a broken clock is correct 2 x per 24 hours. When there is blood in the markets/streets wise investors start buying while the weak ones bailout. During bull markets people are lead to believe to buy more than they should then it is time for the down cycle so business fail people can't pay their bills and the vultures come in and steal your property pennies on the dollar. When many think the market about implode the opposite usually happens. The stock-market rinse and repeat cycles is what makes the big bankers richer and the rest poorer. When everyone yelling look out below maybe it is time to be bullish?

Here’s the deal… since inception in 1913 the Federal Reserve has CAUSED cyclic enriching Bull markets for them and their cronies, and cyclic poverty making Bear markets to suck dry the poor average investor. Yes, many average Joe’s have made big money in the stock market over the years, but NOTHING like the insiders have made. Like any Ponzi scheme or Casino you MUST let some little guys win every now and then to keep them interested. But the Fed, and the Casino, are the really BIG winners!

So, what’s going on?? Most think this is just the beginning of another down cycle and another big wave is coming… it has always been thus, right? We’ll, this time is different. The game is almost over and the music is fixin to stop. The time to PURPOSELY destroy the markets has come as the house of cards can no longer be propped up. The Fed has run out of ammunition by some estimates, but in reality they’ve been wanting to destroy, and rebuild, for a LONG time. This is coming down to the whole world through the Bank of International Settlements, THE bank of banks. From the destruction will come a world digital currency and YOU WILL LOVE IT (that’s what you’ll be told anyway).

So, what to do?? Get out of the stock market like yesterday… invest in durable goods (more than just silver, gold and overpriced land). Buy things and store them that people will need later (not just food). Get smart… get creative… and get out of the market. I MUST SAY THIS… I AM NOT A FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND DON’T PLAY ONE ON TELEVISION. Take my advice at your own risk. With that said I do have two Master’s degrees in business and government financial management and am an avid current events and historical researcher. So, I may or may not know what the h*ll I’m talking about. Thanks for your time reading all of this. Hope it makes sense to some of you.

The best you could do was a 10% Land Contract with the owner.

What Is a Land Contract?

Inflation crisis: Joe Biden’s vs. Jimmy Carter’s | Fox …What was the inflation rate under Jimmy Carter? Despite a sluggish economy, inflation reached as high as 14.8%, and interest rates reached as high as 18% during the period 1977-1981. By 1985-1990, this contributed to the failure of Savings and Loan associations which had many bad loans, especially in real estate.

How much did inflation increase during president carter’s term?

IMO~ Make your move now to upgrade.

Watch for this trading action: The FED will pump in money (equity/liquidity) until option expiration. Then it will tank. This happens all the time. It's rigged. So not only do the longs go bust, but the shorts. In most cases it's the banks selling the short position options while they go long. Then they manipulate the market up all the while selling call (up) options while buying short positions. Next they tank the market AFTER THE OPTIONS THEY SOLD TO OTHER TRADERS EXPIRE. They do this by selling their own long positions all at once. This lowers the market and breaks the long options they sold to fools and suckers as the down turn lasts (by design) long enough for the long position (call) options they sold to also expire. See the game here?

Part of the Ukrainian grouping was involved in distraction of the Russian military from the main directions of the attacks. Heavy artillery duels continue south-west of Izyum, where the Ukrainians have been deploying in attacking positions. A local offensive began near Kopanki to the southwest of Izyum.

On the side of Ukraine, whole units of NATO countries are fighting, who simply changed their chevrons to Ukrainian ones. The Pentagon announced a new package of military assistance to Ukraine totaling $675 million. It includes additional shells for HIMARS MLRS, 105 mm howitzers, HARM anti-radar missiles, Humvee armored vehicles etc.
