JP Morgan, Economists Agree: Market Collapse Will Strike in 2013

According to a major bank, a pair of noted economists, and one controversial billionaire, 2013 will be a “year of terrible reckoning” for the stock market.

JP Morgan just released its outlook for the first quarter. Surprisingly, this regularly bullish company has reversed course and revealed an ominous chart that every investor needs to be alerted to.

As you can clearly see, stocks have retraced the pattern from the last two big market rallies (averaging over 100%), and now face a massive decline in 2013 (of over 50%).

Market Collapse Chart

JP Morgan isn’t alone in its stark predictions.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a must-read article. Additionally, by looking at the chart above, one can clearly see that from ’97 to ’00, it was a moderate uphill climb, followed by a very similar descent. In ’02, it took much longer to get to that high market rally point before descending much more rapidly than the previous fall. The ’09 ascent will likely not top off for several more months, suckering in more market-players before crashing faster than ever before.

Group of Economic Experts Warn of Catastrophic Pattern, “Everything Will Collapse”

Famed economist Marc Faber appeared on Bloomberg TV with a harsh, direct warning to investors.

“U.S. monetary policies will destroy the world,” he said, referring to the new round of stimulus – QE3, or “QE Forever” – the Fed plans to launch this year.

So it wasn’t surprising to hear him speak out against Bernanke’s most recent stimulus plan, quantitative easing or QE3.

What was surprising – and frightening – was the level of wealth-destruction he believes will occur.

According to Faber, “eventually we will have a systematic crisis and everything will collapse.”

Faber’s not alone.

A group of his economic peers agree that with more central bank action like QE3, global economic collapse is imminent.

In a newly released documentary that went viral last month, a team of influential economic experts say they have discovered a “frightening pattern” they believe points to a massive economic catastrophe unlike anything ever seen.

And according to these experts – who have presented their findings to the United Nations, the UK Parliament and a long list of world governments – the catastrophe may happen well before Americans hit the polls in November....

Russia Doubles Gold Holdings: Hayden’s Note on the SDR, Precious Metals, and Money

Posted on Sep 12, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden –

While the Federal Reserve Chairman continues telling us that gold is an antiquated investment, or that it simply is not money, top shelf power players continue dumping truckloads of worthless paper currency into the precious metal.  If you’re not very well versed in the commodities or metals markets, there is really only one reason to do this: to hedge against future problems or price changes.

Even though the illustrious Ben Bernanke says that gold isn’t money, it can be bartered, traded, and exchanged for anything you desire, anywhere in the world, and if we were to experience a catastrophic event, such as a grid-down situation, or even widespread social unrest, there is no way for the metals market or mining companies to keep up with demand. If the event were truly bad enough, the thinly veiled circus act known as the Federal Reserve would come crashing down, as well, and society would require some medium of exchange.

Furthermore, back in the 1930’s, once the US Government barred private holdings of gold bullion, it was far easier to circulate the Federal Reserve notes we currently use.  ...

Ron Paul: ‘The Federal Reserve is Stealing Money,’ Slams Ben Bernanke During House Questioning

Texas Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul questioned Ben Bernanke, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, on Capitol Hill yesterday.

Dr. Paul pulled out a silver eagle, explaining that it has retained its real worth and that hard assets should be used as currency as outlined in the Constitution.

Telling Bernanke that in 2006, when he took over at the Fed, an ounce of silver bought about 4 gallons of gas, where as today it will buy 11 gallons. “That’s preservation of value,” said Paul.

Begin watching at the 0:58 mark for the action.

Paul called for a competing currency to the dollar, stating that the laws should be changed to allow precious metals to settle contract disputes and other legal obligations.

Bernanke addressed Paul by jokingly saying “good to see you again, Congressman”, before somewhat derisively saying he would be happy to consider the Congressman’s ideas and help him work out what currencies to hold.

Paul hit back by saying the government goes after those who attempt to use gold and silver as alternatives to depreciating Federal Reserve notes as if they are criminals, telling Bernanke “the record of what you’ve done is destroy the currency,”...

Our 29 Banking Overlords, Otherwise Known as the Too Big to Fails

Here they are – the Financial Stability Board has released a list of 29 banks that it considers global systemically important financial institutions (G-SIFISs) and thus, considered Too Big To Fail.

The initial list of G-SIFIS:

Belgium: Dexia
China: Bank of China
France: Banque Populaire, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, Société Générale
Germany: Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank
Italy: Unicredit
Japan: Mitsubishi, Mizuho, Sumitomo Mitsui
Netherlands: ING
Spain: Santander
Sweden: Nordea
Switzerland: Credit Suisse, UBS
UK: Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Royal Bank of Scotland
US: Bank of America, Bank of New York Mellon, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, State Street, Wells Fargo

Hayden’s Note:

It should be pointed out that most of the US “Too Big to Fails” are the major share holders of the Federal Reserve system and the foreign banks are the very ones that Ben Bernanke sent hundreds of billions of dollars to in the last major “bailout.”  The very bailout in which he refused to answer Congressional questions in regards to which foreign banks received American taxpayer money (but was later discovered in the partial audit co-sponsored by Ron Paul)....

If you believe Ben Bernanke and his merry band of money printers don’t care about what you think, then consider the latest product development proposal from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. According to RFP (Request for Proposal) 6994, the Fed intends to build a real-time monitoring solution capable of mining and aggregating data across social networks like Facebook and Twitter, alternative news web sites and blogs, video sharing web sites, and mainstream media outlets.

Not only do they care about what you think, they want to know exactly who you are, what language you speak, who you’re talking to, where you’re getting your information, who you are sharing it with, and what your sentiment and emotional state is in reference to that specific moment.

Gold Hits Record After Fed and White House Unleash Economic Terrorism – Hayden’s Note

Posted on Jul 14, 2011 in Economic News, Featured Articles – Kevin Hayden

Source: Bloomberg

Gold advanced to records in London and New York as concern about more U.S. economic stimulus and debt woes in the country and Europe boosted demand for the metal as a protection of wealth.

The dollar fell against six major currencies after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the central bank is prepared to take additional action, including buying more government bonds (from Goldman Sachs at a higher price than if buying from the Treasury Dept!), to boost the economy. Moody’s Investors Service said the U.S. may lose the Aaa credit rating it’s held since 1917, while Fitch Ratings slashed Greece’s rating and said that a default is a “real possibility.”

Hayden’s Note:

The Dollar ALWAYS seems to fall after Bernanke opens his mouth.  But in regards to this “debt default” nonsense, I have to offer a few words.  The Treasury and White House Administration are trying to scare Americans into thinking this “default” would be bad for America, that SS checks won’t go out the day after and that Moody’s is going to downgrade our credit.  ...

What IS Money? Fed Chairman Bernanke says, “Gold isn’t Money”

Posted on Jul 13, 2011 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers – Kevin Hayden

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke faced off with economic genius Representative Ron Paul during his monetary policy report to Congress on Wednesday.  The head of the Fed was forced to respond to accusations of enriching already rich corporations while failing to help Main Street, while he was pushed on his views on gold.

“Gold isn’t money,” Bernanke said.

Hayden’s Note:

I beg to differ.  Gold has been a form of money – if not one of THE most popular forms – for thousands of years, along with livestock, other precious metals and durable goods.  Gold isn’t money?  Then what is money?

Princeton defines money as “the official currency issued by a government or national bank.”

However, Thomas Greco defined money as:

“Money is anything that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts. The main functions of money are distinguished as: a medium of exchange, a unit of account, a store of value, and occasionally, a standard of deferred payment.”

The Google dictionary defines it as “The assets, property, and resources owned by someone or something; wealth” or “financial gain.” states the following in regards to “money” –

Ben Bernanke: About as Accurate as Harold Camping, the ‘End of Days’ Guy

Posted on Jun 24, 2011 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers – Kevin Hayden

Source: The Sovereign Man

Harold Camping has a pretty dismal track record. Thrice now, the 89-year old California evangelist has been very public about predicting the end of the world. Somehow he managed to convinced legions of followers that his complex calculations were accurate.

Camping was obviously very wrong all three times, in addition to other times he was wrong in making smaller predictions in his radio broadcasts.  We can, however, forgive Mr. Camping’s ‘miscalculations’ for the precise date and time of the world coming to an end, writing them off as twaddling, harmless entertainment.

Why? Because Harold Camping doesn’t control the money supply for the largest economy on the planet.

You see, there’s another guy whose track record is about as impressive as Harold Camping’s. His name is Ben Bernanke. And every time he opens his mouth with a prediction about the economy, it’s wrong. Dismally, dreadfully wrong.

Like Camping, Mr. Bernanke and his cronies make complex calculations, culminating in impressive-sounding prophesies for future rates of inflation and GDP growth. He makes predictions about economic recovery in 2010… er, 2011… er, 2012, and declares emphatically that a housing slowdown will not affect the broader economy....

Chance Didn’t Create the Current Economic Crisis

What the world is experiencing today did not happen by chance, it was planned that way.

What Congressman Louis McFadden said of the “Great Depression” is as true today as it was in the 1930s. As Chairman of the House Banking Committee he said, “It was no accident; it was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all.”

What you are experiencing economically and financially today is nothing new. Just study history all the precedence is there. The bankers and their willing helpers do the same thing over and over again. As we have said often what these banks represent is corporatist fascism and monopoly. Through their great wealth they control most governments and their court systems. That is why your elected representatives do not listen to you. They have already been purchased by Wall Street and banking. These are the same people who have financed most wars on both sides for centuries....

Wall Street Baffled by Slowing Economy, Low Yields: Trader

Wall Street is having a hard time figuring out what to do now that the U.S. economy appears to be sputtering and yields are so low, Peter Yastrow, market strategist for Yastrow Origer, told CNBC.

“What we’ve got right now is almost near panic going on with money managers and people who are responsible for money,” he said. “They can not find a yield and you just don’t want to be putting your money into commodities or things that are punts that might work out or they might not depending on what happens with the economy.
“We need to find real yield and real returns on these assets. You see bad data, you see Treasurys rally, you see all bonds and all fixed-income rally and then the people who are betting against the U.S. economy start getting bearish on stocks. That’s a huge mistake.”
