When market optimism reaches dangerous heights, it typically signifies one thing: a crash will be in the cards in the not too distant future. Many indications exist that we have begun to approach the point of peak optimism. Both technical market indicators as well as sentiment seem to be alluding to the possibility of a long-overdue crash being in the near future. For example, stocks have only been this high by historical terms just before previous financial bubbles have burst.
You may have heard this before. In fact, if you read so-called “alternative news” (aka ‘fake’ news) you have heard this meme literally hundreds of times over the last eight years or so.
Yet now, more than ever before, circumstances have primed the financial world for a collapse of epic proportions. It now seems all but certain that sometime during the Trump presidency, we will witness this financial failure.
Make no mistake – this has been a long, long time in the making. Trillions of currency units created out of thin air, and many billions of monetized financial assets later, the stars have finally begun to align in such a way that signifies that time may be running out.
There’s no telling how big this bubble will be blown before it bursts. As host of The Keiser Report, Max Keiser has said, there’s no reason the Dow can’t go to 40,000. There will always be a higher number.
Yet money printing will not always be a solution. Even with trillions created and pumped into the system, the world economy has only been growing sluggishly for the past eight years. The same solution will not work next time around.
According to insider analyst Jim Rickards in his new book, Road to Ruin: The Elites’ Secret Plan for the Next Financial Crisis, the elite have already begun preparing for the coming crisis. The Bank of International Settlements warned them as far back as 2014. And they plan to pursue a different strategy this time around.
In short, the financial system will be frozen, and people will not have access to their financial assets. Bank accounts, mutual funds, bonds, stocks, everything…it will all be out of reach. This way, contagion will never have time to spread. In order to solve the problems, a global currency and system will be introduced. The powers that be want to control everything and everyone.
What ways can one prepare for this? There are many, yet a few of the most important involve owning physical silver/gold and virtual bitcoin. Both will serve as hedges against devaluation of fiat currency. While the big banks have been prosecuted for massive manipulation of precious metals markets, bitcoin has been the canary in the coal mine for the collapse of fiat money. It has recently reached record market capitalization, seeing billions flow into it in a matter of weeks.
What will you do? Sit back and watch as the stage gets set for world financial domination? Or take efforts to insulate yourself and inform others?
