Surveying The Global Damage

Tyler Durden's picture


With the US equity markets only 2 to 3% off their highs, we thought it appropriate to look around the world at where the leveraged equity unwinds so far. There remain a select few nation's equity markets that are positive year-to-date.

Year-to-Date, the deleveraging point is clear... (but US equities - for now - remain clean)


Europe is hurting...


Asia-Pac is not pretty...




and the BRICS are ugly...all red for the year

If there is a sustained taper it will all come apart at the seams.

Right now we are experiencing USD strength, AKA deflation, AKA (IMO) the Ka-Poom (deflation then hyperinflation)

Love it, +1.  Time to execute all the paper-pushers and their political puppets.  Their labor is of no value anyway.  They manipulate paper promises in order to steal real assets and gain power and control of resources (including the human kind).

Those of you with real tradable skills should welcome revolution (while you still have a chance to do so).

Indeed: And I have heard a lot of professional longs very recently and very happily claiming to be ALL IN on the long side of the Equity markets.

Two people who run serious pension fund money justified this by saying to me that they were sure others did not yet `own enough` -- i.e there would be a desperate buyer coming to show them a profit soon, nothing to worry about.

No sympathy from me. They only care about not being outperformed by their peer group anyway, the clients are just meal tickets.

Assuming you're talking physical (if not, then go back to bleating). 


Keep whatever physical you have.  Don't bother yourself with speculating on the ratios; continue converting the purchasing power of any loose fiat into Ag or Au.

It's allocated, in a vault out of the banking system. I don't have any loose fiat, sadly; hence the juggling to increase the total ounces owned.

If silver is undervalued relative to gold, and I swap gold for silver, I'll have more purchasing power when (if!) the ratio reverts... capiche?

Now that our economies are dominated by central planners, ANYONE holding capital is a speculator, whether they like it or not.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is it... when we see the oligarchy literally buy everything, and wind up owning everything, in order to 'save capitalism from itself'.... ie, to save the oligarchy from losing everything when their paper ponzis collapse.

This really could be it.

The problem is you have to sell the gold first for the monetary value then buy the silver with that money. No shop will trade one for the other or trade at value, I did it once to equal out my percentages...decided not to do it again.

You are better just holding what you have and adding to the shorter stack.

Apart from the market-sharting from the perceived punchbowl pull back, gold and silver are being liquidated for margin calls.  The physical truck-loading over the next 30 days might just cause the walls of Comex to come tumblin' down.
