    What’s better than an Off The Cuff with John Rubino? Or Wolf Richter? Or Axel Merk?

    How about one with ALL of them?

    That’s what attendees of last weekend’s Peak Prosperity annual seminar were able to enjoy, live on stage.

    This meeting of the minds was the first time Axel, Wolf and John had ever met one another in person. And the idea-exchange that ensued was pure magic.

    For this week’s Off The Cuff, we’re giving you a huge treat. A chance to watch these great thinkers in action.

    Off The Cuff: Are We About To See Taper Tantrum 2.0?

    The Fed wants to tighten. Will markets stand for it?
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • Taper Tantrum 2.0?
      • The Fed wants to tighten. But can it?
    • Bad Balance Sheets
      • Can central banks simply hold their bad assets forever?
    • The Flattening Yield Curve
      • A classic signal of approaching recession
    • Bitcoin
      • Trying to make sense of the recent run-up

    Recorded before today's FMOC announcement, Chris and Axel discuss the next moves of the central banks, who's intervention and collusion have driven markets more than any other factor over the past decade. Most people don't realize that monthly liquidity injections are currentlyat their highest ever since QE began.

    Now that the Fed is talking seriously about tightening — can it? Or will the markets revert to throwing a tantrum as the global liquidity spigots begin to reduce their flow?

    Off The Cuff: The End Of Buying The Dip?

    Things are shifting in the markets, ending many trends
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, September 7, 2017, 11:47 PM

    2

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • Bye, Bye Fisher
      • The Fed's Vice Chair steps down
    • Bye, Bye Yellen?
      • Axel thinks Fisher's departure signals Janet Yellen will be out, too
    • No Decision-makers Left
      • Everyone is on the same train when it comes to the "markets"
    • The Future Of The Dollar, Euro, Yuan & Gold
      • Old correlations no longer hold

    Chris and Axel cover lots of ground in this week's Off The Cuff with lots of recent seismic moves — China's yuan-for-oil-for-gold announcement, the latest ECB statement, the resignation of Stanley Fisher (which may presage Yellen's exit when her term is up in early 2018. Things are shifting quickly in the markets, geo-politically, in the world economy — even in the weather. Axel warns that the long-standing relationships we've all become accustomed to are fading, and that we need to be prepared for different outcomes from what we're used to.

    Off The Cuff: The Schizophrenic Fed

    Rates are going higher. No they aren't. Yes they are. No...
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, July 14, 2017, 4:59 PM

    1

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • No Rate Hike After All?
      • Yellen sings a dovish tune this week
    • Wait, Wasn't The Fed Just Warning It Would Tighten?
      • Yep. It was talking tough up until now
    • Why Can't The Fed Make Up It's Mind?
      • Because it's in a box. Jawboning is all it can do at this point
    • The Next Fed Head
      • A complete transformation may be in store soon

    Chris and Axel unpack the latest guidance from the Fed issued this week. For those listening, the Fed's inconsistency is understandably infuriating. One week it's warning about tightening ahead, the next it's telling folks rates are just fine where they are.

    Axel, who has more inside access to current & past Fed officials than anyone we know, feels that the Fed is simply trying to walk a tightrope it knows will one day snap. At this point, it's trapped. It needs to normalize rates, but doing so will crash the markets. So it's using the only tool it has — confusion — to keep the system fooled that everything is under control. Of course, one day the ruse will be discovered. But until then, the Fed will obfuscate, vacillate, prevaricate — whatever it can do to keep the status quo in place for one more day…
