Money Printing Fuelled Stocks Bull Market Hurtling Towards Financial Crisis 2.0

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019 Oct 24, 2019 - 04:58 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

The stock markets so far have confounded expectations for a deeper October correction by dutifully rallying for an assault on resistance, with the Dow trading to barely 0.5% of its all time high, all whilst the Trump and the Brexit chaos shows continue in the US and the UK. So how can this be? To once more iterate the general indices are on an exponential upwards curve, where deviations from the highs being buying opportunities for the fundamental reason of exponential money printing by whatever names it may go, QE, government bonds etc.. Governments of the world continue to print money that drives the exponential inflation mega-trend to which stock and other asset prices are leveraged.


A look under the US economies hood soon reveals that Trump for all his bluster has acted as an accelerant to the United States money printing binge by running a budget deficit of $1 trillion per year that looks set to mushroom to $1.5 trillion that puts the US economies $22+ trillion debt mountain on 106% of GDP! 106% of GDP!

I recall not so long ago a debt to GDP ratio north of 80% was deemed as being dangerously high, now most of the western economies are gravitating towards 100% as being 'normal' (except Germany). Of course it's not normal! Even if the US has the worlds reserve currency the effect is to introduce greater financial instability making the world markets more prone to experiencing wild gyrations in response to credit crisis events.

And don't think that a Democrat administration would change this trend trajectory, not when one incorporates the WAR WITH CHINA MEGA-TREND!

The Trump Reset - 2 The Putin Doctrine

Wars, even cold ones COST MONEY! Look to see an expensive cold war battle between the US and China unfold as both continue to ramp up defence spending which is why I have been strongly suggesting to invest in the Defence sector since December 2016 as a major beneficiary of the War with China Mega-trend.

Here's what the Defence spending mega-trend looks like -

(adjusted for inflation)

The United States is on WAR footing, spending on par with that during WW2 as a consequence of the War with China Mega-trend. Now it remains to be seen who will go bankrupt first (maybe both)?

And whilst all eyes in Europe are on Britains continuing Brexit crisis, the ticking time bomb that is the euro-zone continues to hurtle towards Financial Crisis 2.0. With Italy sat on a debt mountain at 133.4% of GDP being the prime candidate for triggering Europe's next financial crisis event with Spain and Portugal not far behind, and all it would likely take is a relatively mild recession to see these nations debt ratios explode much higher triggering credit panic and German tighter control over it's euro-zone empire.

So whilst we invest in stocks leveraged to government money printing debt binge inflation mega-trend consequences, we are rumbling towards a day of reckoning, a bigger financial crisis than 2008 that perhaps climate change will act as a trigger towards i.e. that we can no longer rape and pillage the environment without consequences. Until then, as stock investors in 'good growth stocks' we enjoy the benefit of being leveraged to the actions of fools that run our governments and central banks who effectively continue to hand out free money to stock investors.

So be under no illusions we are on the train to Financial Crisis 2.0, a global government debt induced crisis. 106% of GDP AND INCREASNG is NOT sustainable! Where when the CRASH happens (not imminent) we will first get some DEFLATION followed by a massive surge in INFLATION as the governments double down on money printing in QE 4 EVER! So remain invested in 'safe' assets that are leveraged to the exponential inflation mega-trend that includes stocks leveraged to the AI mega-trend.

The Dow last closed at 26788 after retreating from its most recent high of 27,100 in recovery from the nosebleed plunge at the start of October.
