    IN DEPTH: TRANSCRIPTION – REPRICING OF RISK BEGINS COVER   AGENDA SLIDE 5 We started warning of the huge problems we saw with volatility as measured by the VIX as part of our October LONGWave video entitled "Powering the 'ETF Dynamo'".

  • IN DEPTH: TRANSCRIPTION – GLOBAL LIQUIDITY, CREDIT & FLOWS
    March 7, 2018
    IN DEPTH: TRANSCRIPTION - GLOBAL LIQUIDITY, CREDIT & FLOWS   COVER AGENDA SLIDE 5 Let's start by making sure we understand the terminology we will be using in our discussion today.

    March 2, 2018
    UNDERSTANDING THE NEW $2 TRILLION ASSET CLASS CALLED "vol" (VOLATILITY) MONETARY MALPRACTICE I put this schematic together not long after the 2008 Financial Crisis as we were witnessing the emerging approach the Federal Reserve was taking to its resolution. The last update of the diagram was in 2012 (note the 2012 copyright at the bottom)

    January 24, 2018
    TRANSCRIPTION: IN DEPTH - 2018 TIPPING POINTS & THEMES SLIDE 5 Going into last year we were tracking close to 33 Tipping Points.

  • THE CRONY TRIBUTE SYSTEM
    January 9, 2018
    THE CRONY TRIBUTE SYSTEM In response to a significant number of requests we have posted this paper originally posted at Gordon T Long.com in 2014. Though written in nearly 4 years ago it is more relevant today than then because of the obvious Washington political corruption we are witnessing today on the nightly news.   OPEN
  • TRANSCRIPTION: IN-DEPTH – THE PASSIVE ETF DYNAMO
    December 27, 2017
    TRANSCRIPTION: IN-DEPTH - THE PASSIVE ETF DYNAMO   SLIDE 4 To understand the insanity we are presently witnessing, we need take a step back and consider just how institutional money like Pensions, Insurance Companies & Financial Intermediaries think. They like fixed income because it's far less volatile and ostensibly less risky than equities, They hate

    December 6, 2017
    FINANCIALIZATION AND AN INEVITABLE FIAT CURRENCY COLLAPSE Since the US lifted anchor on the Gold Standard in August 1971 making the US Dollar a Fiat Reserve Currency, the US economy has been propelled forward, no-longer tethered to the principles of Sound Money. Unfortunately, the reality is that this sort of political expediency is the equivalent
  • THE ILLUSION OF GROWTH: THE GOVERNMENT’S GAME OF “SMOKE & MIRRORS”
    December 3, 2017
    THE ILLUSION OF GROWTH: THE GOVERNMENT'S GAME OF  "SMOKE & MIRRORS" All financial assets are nothing more than CLAIMS on real wealth. They are not themselves actually wealth.

  • TRANSCRIPTION: IN-DEPTH – THE COMING ‘NATIONALIZATION’ OF MARKETS
    October 4, 2017
    THE COMING 'NATIONALIZATION' OF MARKETS 'NATIONALIZATION' DURING THE NEXT FINANCIAL CRISIS The Choices in a Crisis By every measure the stock market is historically over-valued and long overdue for some sort of a correction.

    August 22, 2017
    WHAT WE KEEP FORGETTING ABOUT MARKET EUPHORIA & GREED I am sure you have seen various versions of this chart many times before.
