Intraday Update: October 16th, 2014:  ***** PM. Considering where the market is I will cover now and ******.This would give us a very good exit point and *****. etc….. ****- information not available in the free forum

Now, let’s get to Stupidity Olympics: FED Vs. IMF

Fed official wants to keep up QE as inflation expectations slip

Well, that was fast. Throughout 2014 I have argued that not only will the FED not raise interest rates, they will be re-introducing QE as soon as the stock market tanks. With one minor difference as compared to 2007-2009. They can’t cut interest rates (there is nothing to cut) and the velocity of any money/QE is now exhausted. In other words, the FED has already used their Bazooka.

What I didn’t realize is that it would take an insignificant drop of just 1,500 points on the Dow to bring the topic back up for discussion. Sheer stupidity.

IMF: Market Sell-off May Have Been ‘Over-Reaction’

There are a number of things to consider here. From what I have seen, the IMF would not know anything about financial markets. Even if financial markets walked up and hit them in the face. If there was ever an organization that was formed solely for wasting taxpayers money (remember Greece and Cyprus), IMF is it. Second, when the EU Bureaucrats/IMF tell you not to panic…..you know what to do……..PANIC. Better yet, short everything in sight.

I cannot wait for an explanation Christine Lagarde will deliver at the market bottom. I fathom something along the lines of “No one could have seen it coming”. Lunacy.

Yet, the Gold Medal clearly goes to…….

And while the IMF and the FED came in dead heat,  the gold medal clearly goes to the Obama Administration for dropping the ball on Ebola, Syria, Iraq, ISIS, etc…. and for working overtime on trying to start a nuclear war with Russia. Have a good weekend everyone.

This conclusion is further supported by my mathematical and timing work. It clearly shows a severe bear market between 2014-2017. In fact, when it starts it will very quickly retrace most of the gains accrued over the last few years.  If you would be interested in learning when the bear market of 2014-2017 will start (to the day) and its internal composition, please CLICK HERE

How To Avoid Paying Taxes….Through A Legal Loophole…. Of Course

Featured

In another perfect illustration of Federal Tax incompetence, multinationals have accumulated close to $2 Trillion in tax free earnings overseas. Only a corrupt government with a messed up tax code can tax your Social Security or Welfare income while allowing Apple, Google and IBM to accumulate hundreds of billions of dollars in tax free profit overseas. In fact, when I have lived and worked overseas I had to declare my foreign income and pay taxes on it here in the US. That is on top of taxes I have already paid to the foreign government.  But not multinationals.

Does anyone know how I can get one of these loopholes for myself? 

Short of renouncing your American Citizenship you are shit out of luck. But here is how you can achieve the same status as multinationals. .

  • Step #1: Fly to British Virgin Islands and Incorporate a company.
  • Step #2: Fly to Hong Kong and open a business for your company in step #1.
  • Step #3: Fly back to the US and incorporate your HK company in Delaware.
  • Step #4: Properly structure your income generation and bank accounts.  

Congratulations!!!. You are now untraceable and can achieve the same status as multinationals. Outside of income generated within the US, all of your other earnings/income should be considered “deferred” forever under today’s IRS laws. Fair and square. Plus, you get to visit BVI and HK. Everyone wins.

The largest U.S.-based companiesadded $206 billion to their stockpiles of offshore profits last year, parking earnings in low-tax countries until Congress gives them a reason not to.

The multinational companies have accumulated $1.95 trillion outside the U.S., up 11.8 percent from a year earlier, according to securities filings from 307 corporations reviewed by Bloomberg News. Three U.S.-based companies –Microsoft Corp., Apple Inc. and International Business Machines Corp. — added $37.5 billion, or 18.2 percent of the total increase.

“The loopholes in our tax code right now give such a big reward to companies that use gimmicks to make it look like they earn their profits offshore,” said Dan Smith, a tax and budget advocate at the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, which seeks to counteract corporate influence.

Even as governments around the world cut tax rates and try to keep corporations from shifting profits to tax havens, the U.S. Congress remains paralyzed in its efforts. The response of U.S.-based companies over the past few years has been consistent: book profits offshore and leave them there.

Congress hasn’t acted because of disagreements over whether to be tougher on U.S. companies operating abroad amid broader disputes over government spending and taxation. The stalemate has prevented the U.S. from tapping a pot of money that President Barack Obama and the top Republican tax writer in Congress have eyed for such projects as rebuilding highways.

Deferring Taxes

Meanwhile, the companies are deferring hundreds of billions of dollars in U.S. taxes as they lobby to end a system they describe as a competitive disadvantage in world markets. The top 15 companies now hold $795.2 billion outside the U.S., up 10.6 percent.

That increase was slower than the 15.9 percent rise in stockpiled profits those same companies had the previous year. Pfizer Inc. reported a decrease in offshore profits this year, and General Electric Co. and Citigroup Inc. each reported growth of less than 3 percent.

The Bloomberg analysis covers the two most recent annual filings from 307 companies in theStandard & Poor’s 500 Index. It excludes purely domestic corporations, those that don’t disclose offshore holdings, companies with headquarters outside the U.S. and real estate investment trusts that aren’t subject to corporate taxes.

The Biggest Misconception About The Stock Market & Economy

daily chart AOctober 16 2014

10/16/2014 – A mixed day with the Dow Jones down 25 points (-0.15%) and the Nasdaq up 2 points (+0.05%) 

Here is what most people get wrong about today’s stock market. Why this stock-market meltdown won’t hurt you

But for a majority of Americans who don’t own more than a few shares of stock, the impact of the market selloff should be limited. The meltdown on Wall Street isn’t likely to crash the economy of Main Street.

I am not sure how many times I have to repeat the same thing, but it is the stock market that leads the Economy and not the other way around. Of course people have to worry about today’s stock market. Should the sell off continue or worse yet, a crash to occur, it would be months (if not weeks) before the Economy hits the skids in a major way.

This has always been the case. I have already analyzed the 2007 top in great detail and how it was the stock market that led to an eventual Economic recession/depression. In fact, you can look at any market top and find the same thing. It can be 1929, 1937, 1966, 1972, 1987, 2000, etc… It takes the economy 6-12 months to follow the market.

In other words, you should be worried of today’s market decline. Should it continue, there will be hell to pay on the economic front as well. Imagine 2009 recession and you have a fairly good picture of where we are heading.

This conclusion is further supported by my mathematical and timing work. It clearly shows a severe bear market between 2014-2017. In fact, when it starts it will very quickly retrace most of the gains accrued over the last few years.  If you would be interested in learning when the bear market of 2014-2017 will start (to the day) and its internal composition, please CLICK HERE

daily chart AOctober 15 2014

10/15/2014 – A big down day with the Dow Jones down 173 points (-1.06%) and the Nasdaq down 12 points (0.28%). 

The market continues to behave just as forecasted/anticipated. What’s next? A bounce or a crash? CLICK HERE to find out.

People thought I was crazy on two occasions so far this year.

First, on January 4th, 2014, when I liquidated all of my long stock holdings and put most of my portfolio into a 10-Year Note at 3.01%. If you are not paying attention, this trade has been the best performing trade so far this year. Especially now that the Nasdaq has cratered. If you don’t recall, here is why (my thesis remains the same).

  • The FED will not raise rates. They will be reintroducing the QE once a bear market kicks in.
  • No 30 year bear market in yields will end without a double bottom. In other words, 10-Year Note will re-test 1.5% at the bottom of a bear market.
  • Mathematical and timing work shows a clear bear market.

Second, I told my subscribers to start initiating their short positions on September 24th. Just a few days after an all time high on the Dow. Why? Based on my mathematical and timing work. Don’t get me wrong. I am not celebrating or trying to rub this in your face, yet there is only so many times I can warn people that a bear market of 2014-2017 is coming without sounding like a broken record.

Luckily, subscribers who followed my advice were not only able to avoid massive losses (thus far), but to profit from the decline. It is my hope that you can join us for the next move. Finally, I don’t just BS, I trade my own forecasts as our member section so clearly shows.  Again, if you would like to find out what’s next…..a massive bounce or a crash…..CLICK HERE. 

This conclusion is further supported by my mathematical and timing work. It clearly shows a severe bear market between 2014-2017. In fact, when it starts it will very quickly retrace most of the gains accrued over the last few years.  If you would be interested in learning when the bear market of 2014-2017 will start (to the day) and its internal composition, please CLICK HERE

Crashing Oil. War On Russia Or It’s The Economy Stupid

daily chart AOctober 14 2014

10/14/2014 – A mixed day with the Dow Jones down 5 points (+0.03%) and the Nasdaq up 13 points (+0.32%)  

The stock market continues to perform as anticipated. If you would be interested in learning what’s coming up next (crash or bounce), please Click Here. 

Over the last couple of days a few people had asked me about the oil market/prices and what is causing today’s massive decline. The US Economy or something else.

oil

While I don’t trade or analyse oil, here are my 2 cents for what it’s worth.

Current slowdown in the global economy is definitely to blame. The US stock market is in the bubble territory, suggesting a massive global recession ahead. I think the oil market is starting to wake up to that.

Yet, I believe there is much more to the story. As you very well know the US Administration and their Saudi Friends are furious with Russia/Putin over Ukraine and Syria. Since economic sanctions did nothing but surge Putin’s approval rating in Russia, it is quite possible that a coordinated effort is in play to collapse/crash the oil prices. As lower oil prices would be the only thing that can have a severe negative impact on Russia and/or Putin.

Make no mistake, the US Administration is waging an all out cold war against Russia. One thing is certain, it will end very badly for all parties.

In terms of the stock market…… my mathematical and timing work clearly shows a severe bear market between 2014-2017. In fact, when it starts it will very quickly retrace most of the gains accrued over the last few years.  If you would be interested in learning when the bear market of 2014-2017 will start (to the day) and its internal composition, please CLICK HERE

Are We In A Bear Market Now?

Just a quick snippet from our Intraday update. October 13th, 2014: 1:30 PM EST: All markets are forming a triangle that will resolve in the next 60 minutes. The market will either break out ******. At which juncture I will ********* or it will break down.  The Dow didn’t complete to the downside *******.  Maintain short position and *******.  *****-not available in free forum.

Everyone and their day trading grandmother is trying to figure out what’s going on. In our over the weekend update we have looked at the case for a market crash (see below). Today, let’s take a look at the case for a bounce.  Stocks to rally after 10% correction: Pro

Excuse me?

Exactly 10%? Which index? Or will it be 5.7%…..7.2%….11.01%, etc..??? Foolish. Listen, the case for a near term bounce is fairly straight forward. The market is oversold and people are freaking out.  Plus, most markets are sitting at important support levels and with most indices having more up gaps than a pound of Swiss cheese, a possible bounce might develop soon.

With that said, the case for a market crash here remains just as compelling. Luckily, our subscribers know exactly WHEN the market will bounce or accelerate to the downside and what action to take in each case.
