Will Global Markets Be Pushed Deeper Into Crisis By The Fed? – Silver Doctors

US and International markets recoiled from the upper inflation/CPI information final week. The US Fed raised rates of interest by 75pb on June 15. The Fed additionally warned that different, extra aggressive fee will increase is likely to be essential later this 12 months. Earlier than the Fed resolution, world markets opened on Sunday, June 12, and shortly began promoting downward. US Indexes offered off on Monday, June 13, by greater than 2.5% virtually throughout the board. A quick rally after the Fed resolution appears to have evaporated in early buying and selling on Thursday, June 16.

It’s clear that world markets anticipated inflation to remain elevated however had been hoping for some reasonably decrease information exhibiting the current Fed strikes had already dented some inflation considerations. Now, it seems the US Fed has its backs in opposition to a wall and moved charges aggressively greater to stall inflation (and presumably destroy world asset values). From my perspective, that is unknown territory for the US Fed and International Central banks. Meaning merchants ought to anticipate elevated volatility and the potential of a really decided reversion of worth over time.


The analysis carried out by my staff and I reveals some attention-grabbing new information. Particularly that the US Present Account information may be very close to to the degrees reached simply earlier than the International Monetary Disaster (GFC) in 2006 (close to -$218B). I think about this a really clear signal that the US financial system, inflation, shopper engagement, and asset values have continued to hyper-inflate for the reason that COVID-19 virus occasion.

The chart under highlights the US Present Account information and the Dow Jones Industrial (DJI) Common worth information. Discover how the bottom degree of the US Present Account information reached a deep trough (September 2006) about 12 months earlier than absolutely the peak within the DJI (September 2007). This time, the US Present Account trough shaped in September 2021, and the height within the DJI occurred in December 2021 – solely 3~4 months later.

The worldwide markets have continued to eat low cost US Greenback liabilities over the previous 10+ years because the US Fed saved rates of interest very low for an prolonged interval. Not solely did this feed an excessive world speculative section, nevertheless it additionally created an excessive credit score/debt legal responsibility concern all through the globe as charges elevated. Debt holders are pressured to roll debt ahead at greater charges if they can not repay these liabilities utterly – being over-leveraged. This similar state of affairs is similar to how the GFC began. Over-leveraged speculative buying and selling in Mortgage-Backed Securities and different world property.


I’ve been informing my subscribers that an occasion like this was beginning to happen all through 2020 and 2021. Under, are a few of the articles posted in our weblog warning merchants that the worldwide markets had been transitioning away from the countless bullish worth tendencies from 2011 by way of 2021.


The Expertise Sector is main the downward worth pattern within the US main indexes. The NASDAQ might fall to ranges near $9,750~10,750 earlier than searching for any actual assist.

Finally, the NASDAQ could fall to ranges close to the COVID-19 lows, close to $6,500. However proper now, probably the most logical assist degree exists simply above the COVID-19 2020 highs.

I anticipate this new world worth revaluation could final all through the remainder of 2022 and presumably carry into early 2023. It is dependent upon what the US Fed does and the way this occasion unfolds. If there’s an orderly unwinding of excesses within the markets, we might even see an prolonged decline as world expectations transition to new regular financial expectations. If a brand new disaster occasion blows a large gap within the world financial system, like in 2008-09, a really sudden decline could happen – surprising the worldwide markets.

My analysis suggests the US Fed is way behind the curve and has allowed the surplus speculative rally to hold on for too lengthy. International Central Banks ought to have been elevating charges to average ranges close to the tip of 2020 and in early 2021. Now, now we have an extra section bubble much like the DOT COM and GFC occasions merged. We’ve an excessive Expertise Bubble and an extra world credit score/legal responsibility bubble.

When you’ve got not already adjusted your property to guard from draw back dangers, it’s time. When doing so, please think about the long-term dangers of making an attempt to journey out any prolonged downtrend in worth. Are you prepared to threat one other -25% to -40% of your property, hoping the worldwide markets discover a backside quickly?
