    When asked what the biggest risks facing the economy are, David Stockman, lifelong Capital Hill and Wall Street insider, says “That’s easy. There are three: The Fed, The Fed and the Fed.”

    After decades of misguided policy and chronically missing its targets, Stockman thinks the Federal Reserve is truly barreling off the rails now, hurtling our market economy towards disaster.

    What a difference a week makes…

    As of the time of this publication, over the past day and half, the S&P 500 has fallen by -5.5% and the Nasdaq by -9%.

    As we have long been warning, market tops are processes, which can take months to play out. But corrections are events; they happen quickly — oftentimes leaving you no time to react.

    Market Update: Too Big To Fall?

    Will stocks ever drop again?
    by Adam Taggart

    In 2008 the banks were Too Big To Fail. Here in 2020, the stock market looks Too Big To Fall.

    So much of the status quo is now dependent on ever-higher asset prices that any weakness is immediately met with overwhelming support by the central banks and/or national legislatures.

    Many are now wondering: will stocks ever be allowed to drop again?

    Market Update: Overstimulated!

    Today's twin orgy of monetary & fiscal stimulus makes a market reckoning inevitable

    Michael Pento, this week’s Market Update video expert guest, thinks it’s willful delusion. History is crystal clear that disconnects like we have today between (over-inflated) asset prices and the underlying (contracting) economic reality always result in crisis — either a deflationary repricing, or a destruction of the purchasing power of the currency.

    Michael shares the 20 financial and economic metrics on the dashboard of indicators he tracks to determine where we are in this story, and which outcome is looking most likely to happen when. This week’s interview is worth listening to for that list alone.

    Off The Cuff: Is The Crack-Up Boom Here?

    An awful lot hinges on the anwer
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • It looks a lot like the start of a crack-up boom
    • Will the markets ever fall again?
    • History shows our current path ends badly, and in a destroyed currency
    • How can investors protect their wealth in such a dangerous, complex time?

    2020 just gets more and more challenging. After a brief sell-off in March, stocks and pretty much every other type of financial asset are in full melt-up mode.

    Fueled by the Federal Reserve and Congress’ stimulus programs, and cheered by the Administration, higher prices seem the top national priority. Is this sustainable? It it wise? Do we even have markets anymore, or do we just have a charade of one — where eternal rising prices are now pre-determined?

    John and Chris tackle these questions, along with their repercussions for the country and for concerned individual investors trying not to lose their hard-earned savings to runaway inflation OR a deflationary popping of the current asset price bubble:

    Market Update: Melt-Up In…Everything!

    How much longer can this continue?

    Well, folks: we’re officially in a price melt-up in nearly all asset classes.

    Those cheering this white-hot rally argue that it truly is “different this time” and that the commitment of the world’s central banks and national legislatures provide a guarantee that prices will not be allowed to retrace.

    But Doug Noland, this week’s Market Update video expert guest, strongly disagrees.

    Market Update: Tesla Falters

    Is the market topping out?
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, July 24, 2020, 12:17 PM

    15

    All of a sudden, the lead stock of the current massive market rally, Tesla (TSLA), is faltering — down nearly $250/share (14.3%) since yesterday’s open.

    This is important because Tesla embodies the faith, optimism and exuberance that has been required by investors to support stock prices up at their current levels — which by nearly every conventional measure, are now more overvalued than at any prior time in history.

    At this point, as go the leading Tech stocks, so go the markets.

    So much capital has crammed into the tech sector this year that it boggles the mind.

    But we’re now seeing a trajectory that we’re familiar with — a near-vertical blow-off top.
