The Markets Just Gave a Wake Up Call... Few Are Listening

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

I keep pounding the table and screaming about inflation… but people still don’t get it.

Hopefully yesterday’s inflation data was a wake up call.

For those who missed, US wholesale inflation posted its largest monthly jump in four years yesterday. Core Producer Price Index rose 0.4%; only 0.2% was expected. And Fed Chair Janet Yellen blatantly hinted at another interest rate hike in March… despite clear evidence the US economy is rolling over.

If this doesn’t SCREAM “inflation” to you, nothing will.

The fact is that the Fed realizes it has let the inflation genie out of the bottle. The inflation rate is already well above the Fed’s desired target of 2%, having moved a total of 3% higher in the last 18 months.

Gold and Silver have already "figured it out." They're up 6% and 11% thus far year to date.

Look, the potential to see triple digit gains from inflation hedges is here.

If you’re not taking steps to actively prepare your portfolio for this, you need to so now.

We just published a Special Investment Report concerning a secret back-door play on Gold that gives you access to 25 million ounces of Gold that the market is currently valuing at just $273 per ounce.

The report is titled The Gold Mountain: How to Buy Gold at $273 Per Ounce

We are giving away just 100 copies for FREE to the public.

If they bump up interest rates the stock market will tank. The federal government cannot afford to service a $20 trillion dollar debt when half the population doesn't work and 50 million are on food stamps. Service sector jobs can't pay the tax bill that's needed on hundreds of billions for just a quarter point interest rate hike. Not unless you reduce the size of government and the one thousand military bases worldwide.Where's the money coming from with a Trump tax cut? Don't forget one thing, the March debt ceiling talks are coming up.

Inflation up to 2.5%?? Ha

Real inflation has been near double digits for a long long time but hey the gov doesn't have to pay as much benefits to the plebs if they can keep their "adjusted" numbers.

This is making 1999 look rational.  At least in 1999 there was some tradable volatility in, every 3 point drop in the S&P is assaulted with buying from the Plunge Protection team and then the media will spin the worst news into nirvana---this market is turning lumps of coal into diamonds.

Not only him!!

I've seen many,many articles on Zerohedge about the same topic since 2008. 

Hurray, hurray buy gold, bitcoin or whatever else the author sells.

What a bunch of bullshit!

Haven't paid much attention to any of them, not invested in the "market" either or banks.  Just have my "little" farm with no federal subsidy, produce enough to just get buy.  Don't believe in letting the scumbags from the government get involved.  Pay my rent ("annual taxes") and don't want any help from any government agency, from what i've seen during my 77 years on this earth, The government is not "here to help you".

Read Zerohedge mostly for entertainment, the good financial advice disappeared years ago, but there are great commenters on here.

Voted from Trump but starting to think that was not a great choice but he is still better than Hillary.  I firmly believe that she would get us into a war with Russia quickly, with Trump and his recent choices for top cabinet posts, the war with Russia will just be delayed a little bit.

Flown one, but prefer a Maule. For the most part, I could have written your post. I have been reading ZH since '08 myself, and while I rarely, fully understood some of the more detailed financial articles, I enjoyed reading and did my best to follow; I do miss them. My bet is the politicalization of ZH has scared them away for fear of, "guilt by assocation." 

I'm still here, mostly for the comments. I'll read the article, and then wade through the comments and try to determine the "truth" from the clutter. As a result of my reading and by self-determing the "truth", I've "hunkered down", in a modest way, myself. 

Net-net; the national and world debt situation is AFU'd. Even a knot-head like myself, can see that there has to be an end to this insanity.

A few euphinisms that have helped me, make things as clear as mud: It's not over until it's over, or as Dennis Gartman says, "The Melt Up Has Begun: It Will Stop When It Stops And Not A Moment Before", and last but not least, my favorite " never know until you know, you know?

Keep on keeping on...

I flew my Cherokee, actually an Archer, for some 20 years.  Bought it back in 1994. I looked at a Maul, during the time I had my Archer and thought it would be nice to be able to take off and land at my farm, but the price and reallity of where I flew to kept me from buying one.  My airport was only a 10 minute ride from my farm and I had a nice hangar at the airport.  If I bought the Maul, I would have had to build a hangar on my farm ( I already had built 7 buildings, including my house on the farm) so I passed on it.  Really did like the capabilities of that bird though.

Highest jump in 4 years in the first reporting period with a new President that the bureacracy is attempting to topple with a soft internal coup.

Yeah, I trust that data, you betcha. And the unadjusted YOY PPI still sits unchanged at 1.6%

Costs are rising everywhere.Last year the increases have been huge. Then we have people walking around saying there is no inflation. These must be people who live in a cubicle, play with fake numbers all day and get someone else to do their shopping.

How long has this mug been spouting this line that the world is about to end? No wonder no one listens. He's an idiot who, if he's taking his own advice, has missed the whole move. He's a joke.
