If you babble long enough about things you have no clue about, maybe monsters WILL come out from under your bed. :roll:

But probably not.

Again, when the Fed balance sheet gets to a new record, be sure and bleat about it a lot, and we can take a look at an actual meaningful trend, vs. your usual drive by ignorant cherry picking of every negative stat you can find to try to claim things are "crashing" and all is doom. :idea:

Yes, MY GOD. A retail B&M outfit is contracting. You can also cry about Macy's, etc. no doubt. :razz:

When that happens AND internet sales contract at places like, say Amazon and Walmart by 20% over a year, be SURE and get back to us as that would be actual substantive news re the economy.

Of course, perhaps no one will notice amongst your constant blizzard of picked cherries. Crying wolf endlessly has that risk. :roll:

I don't necessarily subscribe to the simplistic "peak oil caused the credit crisis" narrative but you can't deny the economic stimulus that the fracking boom eventually generated (and still does).


Well, it's not exactly Peak Oil, that happens to be the problem. It is the declining ability of petroleum to deliver energy to the end user which has resulted from petroleum’s depletion. Wold GDP has followed petroleum production almost perfectly for the last century, but so also has the debt. It is the humongous pile of debt that the world has collected that will be what brings the whole thing down. The debt has destroyed the economy's ability to allocate capital, improve productivity, and distribute its output in an efficient manner. Worse still, it has negated the implied benefit, and guarantee of holding financial assets. The debt has created a zombie economy; a litany of companies that don't even have the cash flow to pay the interest on what they owe. It has also created a mountain of "fictitious" money that has flowed to the equity markets.



"A Minsky Moment crisis follows a prolonged period of bullish speculation, which is also associated with high amounts of debt taken on by both retail and institutional investors."

You can stop the "I'm dumber than a box of rocks routine" anytime. Your stupid act is running out of gas.

The market is still in Greenspan's state of "Irrational exuberance". With no increase in earnings, no increase in revenues, no improvement in forward guidance, and exploding debt the market is still pumping out all time highs on FED money pumping. The next Minsky Moment is already baked into the cake.

To keep the price of oil high enough, to allow producers to continue operating, 5+ mb/d had to be removed, and that happened at the point of a gun. Depletion is continuing onward in its relentless pursue to completion, and the world must now reduce production by 1.3 mb/d per year to keep prices high enough to continue producing. The crash will be one for the history books, and the war to accompanying it will be the first, and last use of energy weapons.

Bankrupt Bozo Bedford who constantly recycles his effed up debt charts now wants to play the repo instead of his effed up "vanishing" ETP GIGO charts is an innumerate effing moron. What a charming welcher retard.

The overnight repo was $48.8B on 01/09/20 and the weekend repo was $40.9B on 01/10/20. The overnight drain ("pump out") was $7.9B.

Actual data means nothing to the doomer sheep here. Just endless bleating.

Thanks for your efforts to post actual Fed, etc. data over time as a counterpoint to the endless nonsense from certain usual suspects.

I'm sure quite a few folks who read threads like this over time appreciate actual credible data and perspective vs. the "all doom all the time" wall of noise (but few facts in context).

I see the Fed balance sheet decreased about $24 billion as of week ending 1/8.

https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/WALCL

Funny how the doom patrol never reports on any good news in its endless spin efforts. :wink:


For context, we're up under $400 billion from the recent bottom in Sept. 2019. And a similar distance below the long plateau shaped peak from late 2014 through early 2018.

So we've got quite a ways to go yet, before the current operation can CREDIBLY be called the next full blown QE from the bleaters. (And far further before the magnitude is concerning).

Not that they're much on acknowledging credible data if it's not what they want to hear. :roll:

But re the bleating, all sheep should be proud. 8O

On January 10, the @Hedgeye nowcast for US Real GDP in 4Q19E ticked down to 0.03%. Their model is anchoring on the sequential improvement in Net Exports as being the critical signal. Ours is anchoring on fresh cycle-lows across every relevant metric of YoY domestic demand growth.


Pay close attention to this. @Hedgeye usually nails these. This is likely exactly what happened in Q4. If the govt doesn't exaggerate the number, and something like this is reported, it's all over for the markets as you'll see CEOs hunker down like they havent in 10 years.

Meanwhile in the real world:

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/09/clarida ... xible.html

No doubt, this gives the bleaters a good three months to claim the world is ending every week, despite the fact that the funding market is healthy with stable rates, and that inflation remains low.

And of course, instead of collapsing or even responding in alarm, people who actually know economics, like the big investors, are showing NO such alarm re the stock markets, the dollar, etc.

The Federal Open Market Committee at its December meeting kept its benchmark overnight lending rate in a range between 1.5% to 1.75% and projected no moves in 2020, following three rate cuts in the previous year.


But of course, we should believe the doomer blabbersphere that rates are headed to zero and below, since their claims / forecasts are so accurate, year after year after year. :roll:

And of course, we should carefully ignore the obvious contradiction of high inflation AND negative rates predictions by a certain frequent cherry peaker because, as he tells us, he is an economics "expert". 8)

"blabbersphere". A new technical term has evolved to explain the ongoing deterioration of the economic system. It is the first derivative of FED Speak, and the second derivative of "Polly Wants a Cracker". It is a quantum leap in our understanding of our overly complex, and soon to be defunct economic system. Enlightment has arrived!

Global depression is getting closer


Our present debt based system is nearing its "good until" date. Fossil fuels' declining EROEI, and the implicit structure of a debt based monetary system to constantly build more debt are working in synchronization. Money comes into existence when a debt is assumed. The bank creates it out of thin air; they use the presented collateral for the debt as the asset to balance the creation of their liability; the cash that they created. Only the principle is created, the interest cost on the debt is not, and must come from the creation of subsequent debt formation. The debt therefore must grow continuously, and exponentially. The only solution to this dilemma is an economy that can grow faster than the debt. Fossil fuels declining EROEI, which has resulted from its depletion, has negated that possibility. With no way to grow the economy fast enough to service the new debt being created, we are staring into the abyss.
