Altered long-term trends: Quantitative Tightening policy

Featured Post

Here are the latest news items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. Most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor, JWR. Today, we look at altered long-term trends in the bond, equities, forex, and real estate markets, caused by the Fed’s new Quantitative Tightening policy. (See the Tangibles Investing section.)

John Hussman: Repricing a Market Priced for Zero. Here is a quote:

“Faced with a zero-interest rate world that combined ‘fear of missing out’ with a belief that ‘there is no alternative’ to yield-seeking speculation, investors unwittingly drove the most reliable stock market valuation measures to levels beyond the 1929 and 2000 extremes. Unfortunately, those valuations also imply dismal long-term returns in any world not permanently dominated by FOMO and TINA psychology. Measured from the recent bubble peak, the likely consequence will be a long, interesting, 10-20 year trip to nowhere for the S&P 500.”

Are you stacking magazines? You may have noticed that Palmetto State Armory (one of our affiliate advertisers) often has AR-15/M16 magazines on sale. I take advantage of these sales and stock up in quantity, particularly on MagPul PMAGs and black Teflon-coated Mil-Spec alloy magazines. Given the  increasing rate of currency inflation, those magazines are literally better than “money in the bank.”  Stock up!
